Who would’ve thought Saric would be such a big loss (I guess a few did, as it’s the big af bucks)
Or the lack of a second quality big off the bench?

I don’t get JVGs agenda here. Anything that questionable goes against the Suns he is defending. Anything questionable against the Bucks he argues. Why?

Here we go. Last 6 minutes of the game and it’s close so if Giannis moves it’s a foul on Phoenix.

I've never been super bothered by JVG, but after this series I never want to hear his BS again

I don't know how they don't call a foul on Connaughton on that Paul drive. You'd think Paul would get that call.

They lost this one in the second quarter when they blew that big lead.

Love Book. But he is never gonna be as legendary as he wants to be (and we want him to be) until he can play better in late game/late quarter situations. He's turnover prone and in ISO ball just isn't good enough at generating good looks. It has been like this all year. Would love to see his FG% for end of quarter/game shots when he's not in a catch and shoot situation.

At least we won the first 2 so we had room to lose 3 in a row.

I feel ill.

How much longer must we all bleed. It is the little bit of hope that always kills you.

Hopefully, the team can play with a nothing to lose mentality and win in MIL. I'm not optimistic, but hey, it could happen.

This loss is completely on Monty.

1. In the previous timeout, he should have told them to put the ball in Paul's hands.

2. When Booker was trapped with 3 Bucks around him, Monty should have called timeout himself.
