What was the thought process behind starting Dario in the first place?

I didn't think Booker got fouled. But, nevertheless, YSMF!!!

Bucks had 3 guys show up tonight (Giannis, Middleton, Holiday). We had 7. Our depth helped us a lot. Loved the big shot by Bridges in OT.

Again with my usual box score argument
I have zero complaints about DA's defensive effort tonight. Giannis numbers look crazy but I have to look back at what came in like the last 6mins when we made our come back

Yung fella really growing up. Hope his shoulder is fine

I think Craig would have done the job on BroLo but not Jae. Prefer Craig with the 2nd unit so wasn't ideal and it looks shakey because Dario in a funk but I have no prob starting the game with DA on Giannis instead of waiting til the 2nd half or whatever
He made light work of Jae whenever they got matched up

We just got real lucky if this call stands
Maybe you're right, but it shouldn't be luck that the official makes the right call.
I more meant that Jrue fouled him...Book wasn’t getting that shot off
Ah, that makes sense. Jrue fouled him twice before making a move for that shot as well, so it seemed like he was comfortable doing anything and putting the onus on the ref to make the call. Glad to see her do the job correctly even though it took a while.

Anyone have a clip? From what I saw, Jrue slapped across Book’s forearm, but looks like they actually called it on Tucker.

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

I checked the play-by-play report on NBA.com and it has the foul given to Tucker. The Suns broadcast only focused on Jrue because he obviously slapped down on Bookers arm, so it was a pretty easy assumption.

It's hard to see it in real time, but I guess Tucker hit him first.

Yeah, the foul was called against Tucker coming over to help. You can kind of see that his elbow jostled Book's elbow a little bit right as he was going into his shooting motion. It wasn't much of a foul, and I'm sure the Bucks fans are upset about it happening in that situation.

Did that Jrue swipe not hit Book? Looked like it did on one of the replay’s. Maybe they both got him. Curious to hear if the Bucks players have any feelings on the matter.

That Connaughton three on a broken play when the Suns were up 6 was a killer. That timeout without control of the ball was horrible officiating.

Yea Dario to mark BroLo , basically what we did with Frank last time to get DA matched up
DA has been solid against Giannis, just wanna keep him in the 20s😳
Not possible when he's hitting all his FTs. Tweaked ankle helped though.

I’m holding a candlelight vigil for Dario at halftime here in my living room. He’s just out there running.
Yeah, he's not right. He looks broken down and injured to me. It looks like it's a big effort just to run down the court. DiVincenzo got away with a push early in the first quarter that sent him to the floor.

Solid half all things considered
Most games from here on out gonna probably be a grind so just gotta keep at it and stay solid

Thought we defended Giannis ok but man still with 20+ easily. The fact he's hitting his free throws is a bummer too
You nailed that. A grind it was.
