Live Thread: Cavs vs. Bucks

The Bucks return to the Q after whooping the Cavs in Milwaukee just a few days ago. This time, they will probably not be resting Giannis, so victory will be an even taller order for Cleveland.

The Cavs are coming off a fun win over the Knicks while the Bucks got beat by 16 in Indianapolis, Wedenesday.

For Cleveland, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and John Henson all remain out. Let’s hope Matty D gets some revenge on his former squad, and Giannis doesn’t get too mad about losing wednesday.

They just couldn’t match Lopez and Giannis size. At times it looked like the Giants playing the Munchkins from the Wizard of OZ. They tried like Hell but there ain’t a whole lot you can do against the 2 Big Trees. I love the growth I’m seeing in Nance on a more positive note.

Denver beats OKC despite missing 3 starters. GSW score 7 unanswered in the last 40 seconds to beat the Kings by 5.

And a three team Ariza (to Wiz), Rivers (to PHX), and Oubre (to Memphis), with Memphis also sending 2 2nds, Selden, & Brooks, falls apart, after players are notified mid game, when PHX/Memphis thought they were different Brooks’ involved. Suns thought they had Dillion, Memphis wanted to trade Marshon.

Wiz apparently got it mixed up, per Woj, PHX/Mem talked through them. Sun say they say Dillion’s medicals, so perhaps Grizz backed out.

So far, in first qtr of my watch he seems once again to be bothered by their length and simply can’t stop anyone individually on d in iso or in the p and r.

Bledsoe is bigger, stronger, & faster. Their length deters drives. He missed a bunch of floaters badly, some off balace jumpers, and missed some contested layups.

Hood had it going early. Then Delly, Clarkson, Nance really played well & he just took a backseat to them (correctly).

Did have a nice drive/dunk try on Giannis and a nice cut late.

Looks like the bucks shooting was iffy again from distance, but they still have put up 40+ threes. We’re the cavs giving them open shots and they missed or were they cavs guarding shooters and letting Giannis have space?

Giannis is like prime LeBron. Either he kills you on the drive and if you double they move it for an open 3 with 4 guys above the arc.

Not as good a passer. Or shooter. But more dominant at the rim. Dr J is the only thing I’ve seen that is even close (other than Bron), but in those days there was always a C in the lane, and sometimes a PF too.

His shot looks worse this year than it has in the last few.

Yeah started the replay. That drive and dunk over/thru cedi in the first. Dunno how you stop that unless you completely collapse on him. Think the bucks should have traded for Korver instead of Hill. Then you have two truly deadeye shooters in Korver and Brogdon, in addition to the more streaky prospects of Khris, Bled, and Lopez, Ersan, and Snell.

Maybe Dominique. He was more of a 2 footed leaper rather than off one like the other guys.

Can’t watch the game. Shaking my head at Giannis stat line. Delly and nance with 5 assists apiece and Clarkson with 4 is a lot of playmaking for a bench unit. Will have to watch the replay.

I like the fight. I like that we are taking more 3s. I LOVE Nance’s play & 3PT shot. I like the Delly/JC/Nance 2nd unit. I like Hood’s recent play.

Sexton is getting punked by Bledsoe. Put Burks or Clarkson on him. Let Sexton guard Connaughton (or however you spell it).

Down 6. We in it.

If Delly, Clarkson, Hood, and Nance can play the rest of the game (+ Nwaba or Burks or Bgame) we have a shot.

Hanging around on that 9 pt deficit. Kinds feels like that’s as close as Cavs will get tonight without spreading the offensive contributions more.

Sexton blows a layup.

And then Sexton misses a contested layup by 2 feet. He and Cedi are just terrible around the rim. At least he used the glass.
