There's like a 30% chance the Bucks are frauds so there's a real chance they make it out of the east. From there....anything is possible baby

I definitely think the Raptors are the only team besides the Clippers that have chance of stopping Giannis this year. Itís not a great chance but it is there.

Everything is budget for poor Sportsnet in the bubble even their post game interviews. Sucks that ESPN is the only network who gets to have people doing interviews actually there.

The issue with beating the Bucks is that they had like 7 40%+ 3pt shooters without the backdrop. With the backdrop and no home court advantage, theyíll need to miss a ton of 3s 4/7 games to lose a series and I just donít see that happening.

Yeah it is pretty much this. I really am only allowing the possibility that these really good defensive teams that can also hit threes and be physical can maybe muck up 4 games.

Here's a hint, it's a trap.


Bucks should be the favorite to win it all. Raptors have the best chance to knock them off.

Seems like the Clippers are tailor made to challenge that. Kawhi, PG13, and Beverly on the perimeter is a good start, I don't know what they'd do with Giannis.

Some might call that a hole in the plan. It's also not clear what they're going to do with AD.

The Lakers have 3 bigs that outclass Zubac and 2 that would most certainly challenge Giannis. Do they have enough perimeter defense? I like Caruso, but Iím a homer. Does Waiters play defense?

Yeah it was weird. The Bucks haven't beaten the Raptors in the same "LeBron owns the Raptors in the playoffs" era.

In truth the Lakers have a lot of problems that make them getting out of the first round less than a lock, let alone making it to the finals. But basically the lack of shooting really makes the Lakers chances against the Bucks dire.

Agreed.

It felt like the Lakers started the game trying to get Danny going which unfortunately spotted the Raptors 12 points.

They also tried to get Markief Morris going for like 3 or 4 3 point attempts in a row. Also failed.
