I think the recipe for Giannis is to make him a scorer and pressure and deny and stop everyone else. So I'd slightly adjust your claim, ....the likes of DJ going off than Bledsoe/Middleton/Streling Brown/whateverwisconsin


Excellent point.

This is why Detroit would have been the toughest matchup for us, with a healthy Griffin - a guy like Griffin is hard for us to contain, he's too strong for either kawhi or pascal.

Wed play more Gasol/Ibaka together vs Detroit.

Blake is tough match-up for everyone this year. Detroit is average to horrible on every other position.

Anyone else think Detroit needs to move on from Drummond? I'd trade him for wing shooting if possible. I have a feeling Griffin will want out soon, maybe this summer. That team is so poorly constructed.

Not sure how much demand is out there for either of them, Drummond has a well deserved reputation for taking nights off, and centers are not exactly a hot commodity right now.

And Griffin, teams are probably scared of that contract, given his injury history and age. Would be hard for Detroit to get reasonable value in return.

They really should sell everyone for whatever they can get, and restart - but it's tough in a small market after years of mediocrity.

Detroit is getting absolutely smoked by the refs. 32 FTs to 8.

Yeah, it ended up 41 FTA (Bucks) to 12 FTA (Detroit). That is just insane and seems unfair, fixed imo.

That's crazy. If the games were called evenly, games would be a lot less predictable. I can only imagine how we'd be reffed in the Finals.. or EC finals for that matter.

Wait until round 2 vs Philadelphia. They lead the league these playoffs in FTA. I don't think that'll change vs us.

Apparently this was the 2nd worst playoff sweep in history ... It was unbearable to watch. Too bad Griffin was hurt, he could have made Giannis work a bit harder. Sucks for Boston more, so it's all good :)
