That was a fun game to watch from start to finish. It was the defense, really; great help defense but they were rotating back over to the open man quickly and weren't allowing easy jumpers the way they were at the beginning of the year. How much of it is the team focusing more and how much of it is just losing Parker and his porous defense?

Monroe is still putting out a ton of effort and is really fitting into the team style. It's odd that all of a sudden I wouldn't terribly mind if he used his player option and stayed another year (most likely won't, though).

Didn't envision Maker being like this already. He used to be absolutely lost on defense, but now he's pretty good and is figuring out how to use his length to his advantage. It's kinda funny when he gets the ball at the 3-point line he sometimes gets this hesitation to say "Really? You're going to give me this shot? ok." The Bucks must have an amazing set of coaches to be able to develop raw talent like they've done with him and Giannis. Put another 30 pounds on Maker and it really seems like he could be something special, too. What a fun team to watch.

Giannis is still getting 5' feet of space when he's at the top of the 3. Boy if only he could hit that shot at a reasonable clip he'd be impossible to stop. I think it's going to be surprising if Giannis doesn't at least get some recognition for MVP next year.

Thought Maker was at least a year away from playing like this. I mean, just how good is he going to be in two years?

During the first game they said that Maker had been working with Kevin Garnett, and Garnett said that "(Maker) will win a MVP some day" and that "in a couple years (Maker) will be the best 7-footer in the game".

Pretty high praise from someone who never put on a Bucks uniform.

His hands definitely need some work. I think they're kind of small so I question how good a rebounder/post player he will become but as active as he is he can certainly defend the rim and even defend a 4 out on the perimeter.

Heard that the bucks played the barney theme song when they introduced the raptors yesterday. That is hilarious!

Dare I suggest that Jabari might be (sorta) on the trading block if anyone would call? Value is probably fairly low so maybe not but as much as i'd like it to work he just is hindering this team when he's out there on flow/defense...its readily apparent now. Maker is going to need his minutes as time goes on too.

Jabari could be a 21st century Rickie Pierce.

That article right there explains he's about team and not I. Pretty amazing writing, you can feel his emotion. I am hoping the team takes it carefully and he doesn't become the next Derrick Rose with his knees. But in this write-up of his, It would sound like he's committed to being a Buck like Giannis.

What an amazing turnaround for the Bucks to go from lottery to a wipe out of the #3 seed.

Hammonds has no idea how to judge contracts or sign FAs, but my goodness the man can draft. G, Brogdon, and Maker?

Holy smokes....just read the article Jabari wrote and am just stunned by how powerful it was...as a Bucks fan you just have to get choked up by it.....I really hope there are some thunderous Ja-Bar-I chants today

Game 4 about as bad as game 3 was good. Maybe we will just win all the odd games, but hopefully we can pull it off in 6. Would be fun to watch them win the series at home.

Awesome article! When are they thinking he'll be game ready? It might be way too big of a risk, but I almost wonder if it could be a huge payoff to extend him at a discount and see if he takes it. That is if he's healthy after all the rehab. Just a thought. I'm assuming he's going to have lingering issues as he gets older, but could hopefully stay healthy for a couple years while he's young.

Game 6 tonight.

Lots of cheap tickets on seatgeek. Wish I weren't working on the west side of Madison... I'd be going.

Jason Terry earned his yearly salary tonight. Exciting game, good experience for a young team.

Hate that it had to end that way. At least get a shot off. Heck, at least inbound it to a buck! It was an exciting comeback though. Giannis was so gassed im amazed he made it to the end.

That was such a trash fire ending to a fantastic game. Giannis bruh...MAKE YOUR FREE THROWS! Talk about a brain fart driving a wide open lane with Lowry on him too...and don't forget Middleton's brain farts. Overall I would call it a good season, but man what a terrible way to end it.

what a comeback last night, i think overall they made great strides this season.

i think the one thing that is painfully obvious is that the bucks need to add a shooter in the draft or free agency / trade.

looking at early mock drafts on who could be around i'm looking at Luke Kennard as a good draft pick that could be around at 17.

Tough ending to that as many have said. Giannis can't take that layup with that little of time left. He actually could have taken it to the rack the first time he had the ball and didn't. Oh well. I loved how crazy that place was at the end. I don't know if I've ever seen it like that. Awesome. Hopefully they learn from it and get better next year. Big Things!

I think that a backup PG, specifically Bronson Koenig, would be a really good 2nd round pick. Koenig is definitely a shooter who can create his own shot.
