The Milwaukee Bucks have officially sucked us back in.
The Milwaukee Bucks took down the Brooklyn Nets tonight, 104-89, inside the Fiserv Forum in Game 6 to force a Game 7.
I made sure to have neutral emotions during the game tonight until the final buzzer so my emotions couldn’t be played with like they were on Tuesday.
Khris Middleton, who still isn’t worth the max-contract the Bucks gave him in 2019 and if you think he is you’re certainly entitled to your own opinion (but I’ll give credit where credit is due), came up big for the Milwaukee Bucks tonight.
Middleton started to assert himself in the second quarter and he came through late in both the second and third quarters to create some separation. There was some big shot making from Middleton tonight and boy the Bucks needed it.
Yes, Middleton came to play tonight, BUT we need to see it in Game 7 on Saturday as well. Middleton always pulls a Houdini act this time of the year, so we’ll see….
I think you all know by now that I love Milwaukee a lot. Like a lot, a lot. But we learned pretty quickly that had Brooklyn’s trio been healthy the entire series, this was a wrap.
*This* Nets team? A good chunk of (good) teams could hang. Milwaukee has caught an insane break and it’s okay to admit that.
I think Mike Budenholzer saw that Rick Carlisle was a Free Agent and decided to draw up and call plays rather than going heavy iso like he so often has this series.
If the Milwaukee Bucks were smart, they’d buyout Barclays Center, and literally give tickets and rides to Bucks fans and pack that place green. It’d be unprecedented, but who really cares. I’m the visionary this team needs.
Deer District was amazing tonight. All this city ever wanted was a winner.
The Bucks have been brutal from 3-point range in these playoffs. There’s one thing I don’t get…why not post up Jrue Holiday against this Brooklyn team? He’s stronger and better than any of the guards that are defending him and he would eat them alive in the paint.
PJ Tucker played phenomenal defense on Kevin Durant tonight. Speaking of which, I could go the rest of my life without seeing Middleton guard Durant again.
Game 7 is on Saturday, June 19th. Tipoff is set for 7:30 PM (Central Time) and will be nationally televised on TNT.
The Milwaukee Bucks are 2-8 all-time in Game 7’s. Their last Game 7 win was on May 20, 2001 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Charlotte Hornets.
