    charlotte going stone cold from the field helped. 0-11 from 3 point land. Giannas out scored them that quarter himself with 14 pts to 12. Took bucks moneyline live and wasn't surprised when they came back from down 13. I've been high on this team for a while. I think they make it out of the east and take 1 or 2 from golden state

    best team in the east

    like metssuck said, if they're down early you can get some great value live... or last night you could've gotten big + numbers early in the 4th

    3 pointers kill most teams

    have to shoot closer to the basket

    Dominating a quarter vs a mediocre team is no cause to plan a championship parade. 4th best team in the East imo. Sixers are ahead of them...

    Bucks have a long list of things i don't like about them, beginning with that sorry excuse for a pg Bledsoe.

    Seems the city of Milwaukee is quietly on a little sports hot streak. Brewers were one game from the World Series (although that was helped with Dave Roberts being the opposing manager), the Bucks have best record in NBA, and Marquette is ranked high. None of them will win any titles, but those Wisconsinites are happy with just being close.

    2 things wrong with that comment

    most sports fans in the state that don't live in the milwaukee area don't care or follow bucks/marquette

    and no, wisconsinites aren't happy with just being close, we've had enough of that pain with the packers over the years (although favre/rodgers each won a super bowl)... had wisconsin in the final 4 back-back years, etc

    4th best team because you say so?

    show me someone else with a 10 pt differential (pts for/against)... 2nd best in the nba is golden state at 6.9

    just because you say that 3 teams with worse records and worse stats are better than the bucks, that doesn't make it right

    well it was a pretty ridiculous comment based on nothing, except for maybe his hatred of eric bledsoe

    would've liked some backup to the comment, like "76ers are better, whipped em when they met" but that's not really the case since the bucks won that game by 15

    Be wary of screaming from the roof tops the SQUARE view. I know their point diff, it's plain to see in the standings on nba.com. If you're going to go by something so simple as this then god help you.

    yeah it's pretty stupid to look at how a team has played, and how many points they score and give up

    guess i should pay more attention to the color of their shoes and how many slices of pizza giannis eats on tuesday nights

    My opinion is based upon personnel, the meat & bones of power rankings. You think winning a regular season matchup has any implications upon a playoff game? You're a novice -there, you started the name calling

    i didn't start the name calling, you did

    first you called me a square, then you called me a novice

    so that's 2-0

    Bucks are solid...

    Rockets also almost lost after giving away a huge lead to the Raptors late in the game last night.. Major collapse late in Houston.. They got lucky to walk away with the win when Kwami Leonard missed a game ending 3 for the win..

    i said your comment was ridiculous, and that you had hate for bledsoe, nothing in there is name calling

    there's a difference between a discussion where you say a comment is ridiculous, and saying that a PERSON is ridiculous

    i'll just say i'm sorry and goodbye, have better things to do than argue about arguing

    Can a non-ridiculous person say ridiculous things? Is a person who hates someone not a hater? hmmm

    I like the Rockets. If something happened to Cousins they might be the top team right now.

    They are better than Toronto for sure. It's obvious kawhi is in mercenary mode this yr, yet guys get sold on that regular season Kool aid every year

    Doesn't really matter what Boston does it where they are in the standings, it seems so obvious that they are the Eastern conference champs this year

    Bucks may be better than the sixers with home court advantage and that cancer stick Jimmy Butler

    ^^Raptors don't even use Kwami Leonard to his full potential or really look to run plays for him. That what I saw last night. Kwami almost looked bored playing last night. He's definitely not hanging around next year if I had to guess. Just going thru the motions this year and I think his teammates know this also..

    He'll probably turn it up come playoff time regardless though.. I still like the Raptors to go deep into the playoffs this year.

    Raptors can win games without Leonard
    Can Bucks win games without Giannis?

    I stand corrected. 3rd best team in the East

    Tor
    Phi
    Mil
    Bos

    I was right about Bledsoe ..awful.

    Good to see the Bucks melt down like that in an elimination game. Shows the NBA isn't fully in the toilet.
