Ayton is appears to be awake and alert this quarter. Making some good plays

Cam Johnson is my Bubble MIP. Carter, Saric, and Payne have had a lot of bright moments, but Cam has been consistently good.

I've had both games on at the same time. The Bucks are half-assing it just like I expected they would.

It's simple. The Bucks don't want to risk playing the Suns in the finals.

Yes. Still pulled a big P move and passed out under the basket when he could’ve just dunked it.

Bledsoe with 3 points on 1 of 6 shooting, looking like ass, likely trying to lose to screw us over.

Bledsoe and Middleton never play well when they're the featured guys on the Bucks IIRC. Maybe they get it going in the 2nd half.

Great 1st half all around. All the guys in sync offensively this game. Defense has been shaky but it hasn't really mattered. Book, the Cams, Jevon, Dario, Mikal and even an Ayton dunk. They're clicking.

Booker has solidified himself as a bonafide #1 on a winning team.

Bridges playing like scrimmage Bridge.

Cam can’t hit anything today but hustling and cutting to the rim.

Dario keeping up his bubble play.

Can’t say enough about Payne/Carter as a backup backcourt.

No frank , thank GOD

If this is our last look at the Suns this season, its been a good one.

If you haven't been watching Bucks/Grizzlies, those halftime highlights on TNT showed you everything you need to know about how the Bucks are playing.

Memphis will get run off the court if they make the playoffs. Milwaukee is TERRIBLE without the Greek Freak. Look worse than a G-League squad.

Who ever Memphis plays in the play-in, they will lose to them. They will not make the playoffs.
