Felt Miami overachieved in last playoffs.. im not the biggest believers in Herro and Robinson yet (aka the Chainsmokers). Think Bucks are more experienced by now, they'll know what level of toughness to expect from Miami, and their big 3 just has a way lot more talent overall. Going Bucks in 5, but then to lose in 7 vs Nets. Here's my bracket

The Bucks more experienced now? Bish, their youngest starter is like 26-years-old. If experience have been holding them down, they beta as fuck.

Duncan Robinson showing why even an otherwise limited player can be so valuable, 9 points just like that.

Foul call on Adebayo on that Giannis drive was laughable, can't wait til VAR in the NBA.

Butler showcasing why he's not a superstar... Taking tough shots and missing, also missing an open put-back. Two turnovers. Big face coffee? More like Big Flop Coffee, amirite?

Nothing like a rofl to cement the argument.

The play-in is working, hopefully here to stay.


Working how exactly?

From the NBA's point of view it's a faillure. Losing at least 4 prime Curry games in not great for them at all.

I'll allow that phantom foul as they just missed an obvious one from Bam on Giannis

These refs Laughing dragic tripping over himself and gets a foul

Like the Warriors were excitingly in contention somehow. The play-in makes the endless regular season have a bit more meaning, so it's a positive. If Steph or someone else can't make it through from the play-in, they don't deserve it.

And yeah, this is totally how it works. Lead your team into the finals once, you get a free pass from there on in. Totally how it works.

Having an all time finals performance definitely gives you a free pass to miss some tough shots in the first quarter of a game you're leading.

Like did you watch how good he was last year? He's one of three players with a 40-point triple double in the finals.

LeBron, Jerry West and Jimmy Butler. Doing that warrants superstar status to me. Especially considering how ridiculously efficient Butler was all year this year.

Like Butler was top 10 in all advanced metrics this year.
4th in Box +/-
6th in VORP
5th in PER
3rd in Winshare per 48 after Jokic and Embiid

He also had 60% TS% while being a top 10 defender.

Incredible how little we've talked about his greatness this year when you look at the facts.

This Heat team is a weird mix of likeable and unlikeable. I like Bam, I like Butler, Duncan has a great story, Nunn too.

But on the court they all try to be James Harden. Herro and Butler in particular, although Bam loves a good flop too.

I guess you can say that maybe they just do what they have to to win. Good for them, but it does make the team itself a bit unlikeable.

Butler's a crafty player on both ends and that's obviously great. But for a supposedly-superstar he can struggle to score an awful lot. He shines when the offense comes to him naturally, but hasn't got a reliable way of scoring in give-me-the-ball situations. Didn't break 20ppg against Indiana or Boston last playoffs.

This will be a great series if it keeps playing out like this.

That being said, I feel pretty good. The superstars on both teams aren't really playing all that great, but we're up 3 at half and we're 2/17 from three. Obviously, we need to improve from 3, but we should be able to do that with the shooters we have.

Miami really focusing on not giving us threes and forcing us to make a decision once we step inside, and relying on their ability to scramble. Bucks are smothering the inside and living with Miami's ability to hit shots from midrange/outside.

Both teams are succeeding at what they're looking to do. Butler operates inside and hasn't had much joy, and neither has Bam. Meanwhile, Bucks hitting 11% from 3.

Giannis having a so-so game, but it's clear he's not running into the same trouble as last year as far as Miami building a wall. Milwaukee's actions on offense are a lot more dynamic and haven't relied nearly as much on Giannis having to bulldoze in.

yea Butler's always been a fringe superstar/star in my eyes. Most of his numbers come through his sheer will and tough play, rather than outright talent.

They knew that the Duncan call was bad so they gave one to us. Ours is actually technically a foul, though, even if it's a bitch move

Wow that is fucking embarrassing from the refs.

They don't call Giannis coming up on the 10 all fucking game until the last minute. And with a lane violation from Miami no less.
