Bucks defense isn’t their problem.

Their problem is Middleton is really a third option forced to be a second option and Holiday plays some of the worst offense I’ve ever seen.

I get the Bucks got 118 dropped on them back to back but when it boils down to it, that’s been the problem for years except it was Bledsoe. When your second option is shooting 5-20 damn near every other game and third option looks like the worst player on offense on the court good luck.

its part of it. suns L in the po are 92, 95, 102, 102. pts.

Giannis will never be the best player in the league until he developes a jumpshot.

There’s been best players in the league without a jump shot. He just needs to make his post game more versatile and get better at FTs.

This is such a casual Reddit take.

Shaq is a center who most likely dominated with his body frame.

Giannis also overpowers in his natural SF position and uses his speed/quickness when playing the 4/5 for stretches. People also underestimate his passing 🙄

Giannis is a SF that cant shoot, pretty much just like LeBron when he came in the league. LeBron was pretty easy to guard without the jumpshot. Thats why he didnt have that much success vs the Spurs or vs the Mavs in the Finals.

Sure but like Gohawks said he's more like a modern day Shaq, who's making over 60% of his fgs in both the Finals and Conference finals. He's not attempting many 3s but he's shooting 35% in the Finals. He's averaging 31 points 14.5 boards/ 4 assists/ 3.5 stocks. Not much more one player can do, he needs his team to step up.

Bucks got the better roster than the Suns. Giannis is just overrated and still raw.

Better roster that has not performed, go look back at the first two games and see how much help he had. Actual casual take 😆 

When your best player cant hit permeter shots you become easy to defend as a team

Watch tonight's game, the Bucks are moving the ball far better than their first two games and defending switches better. Bud also remembered that he has a pretty good scorer on the bench (Portis).

But Im not the one that thinks you dont have to be a good shooter to be considered the best player in the league.... 🙄

Let me explain to you what "good shooter" means:

It's a player who scores lots of points with high FG%.

Like  Giannis tonight,  41 point  on 60 FG% .

Let me know if I need to explain in more details

No thats not what it is. His FG is highly bolsterd of driving inside the paint. If Ayton did not get in foul trouble early, obviously Bucks would of lost this game.

 

Giannis is pretty easy to guard once you protect the paint
