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.
They’re not trying. Memphis coach was an assistant with the Bucks last year...this is a tank job to get Memphis in.

Imagine the best team in the bubble not making the play-in game.

Dallas is taking the Milwaukee approach to this second half.

I've been saying this for the past three days. That Bucks (-4) betting line was a joke. I'd have put a years salary on the Grizzlies moneyline.

Dallas goes on a mini run to start the second half. Monty calls a time out to remind them the game isn’t over.

Bucks are God awful. I'm turning that trash game off. Unless the Blazers lose a few star players to injury early in the game later, we're going to end up 8-0 in the bubble and not get in.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

Can we donate a few points. I’d be willing to give 25 points to Milwaukee...on second thought, they could still lose that game, I’ll give them to Brooklyn. They’ll at least try.

I think the NBA did a major f*** up by not having the final games of the 8-12 seeds be against each other.

They talked about that at the half and Barkley said it was unfair. I don’t think so. If they won more games during the regular season they wouldn’t need a miracle run.

Let's focus on the positive for the last quarter and a half of the season.

This game is an absolute smoke show. Booker is a legitimate superstar.

How is that a foul on Bridges? Ok, reviewing it...

Maybe Baynes will get some time after all. It was be nice cap off for the season if this is indeed the end.

Give Jerome 12 minutes of play? Or go for 160?

I definitely think Monty should clear the bench at some point. Get everyone some minutes.
