Right..... During the regular season, the Bucks put up 135 on GS in one game (Bucks won 135-111), but only 95 in the other (a GS 105-95 win). That loss was before the Bucks retooled their lineup, though. As for being a much better coached team - Bud will likely add his second NBA coach of the year (he already won the 2019 award from the National Basketball Coaches Association, by the way). Kerr's good - but it's not as lopsided as you're suggesting. To me, your strongest argument is that GS has been there before and that experience will be crucial, assuming that both teams advance. The Bucks players have little playoff experience, although that hasn't been a problem thus far. Arguments dismissing how well the Bucks have played this year simply show that people haven't been paying attention, which actually continues to motivate the Bucks. I'm not saying we'll win, but folks that write off the Bucks or attribute all our success Giannis just aren't familiar with the team.
    Look we all want GS to lose just not sure there is a team that can do it this year.

    you’re from Milwaukee?
    I said Gentleman’s sweep, if GSW does not win by virtue of the Gentleman’s sweep (IE more than 5 games) i will say GeoCocky was right

    Yes sorry I’m discounting the regular season especially with how GS always performs in the playoffs

    I felt like two days ago was the dagger for Portland. Losing two big leads like that and then completely flopping in the last 3 minutes, failing to score a single point, is a hard thing to recover from. I expect GS to win again tonight. Hope I am wrong, but that is a strong gut punch to recover from.

    Actually, yeah, I am from Milwaukee and have followed the Bucks my entire life (though I was only 5 when we won our previous championship). And as for the games, I got thrown off by your statement: "Anything less than a 5 game victory you win." But sure, gentleman's sweep it is. If only we had CockyCash we could really raise the stakes.

    GSW’s game plan/defense is pretty damn good
    Klay is one of the best defenders in the game
    The last two rounds Portland played OKC and Denver, both of their PGs are not very good defenders

    as far as gs/milwaukee regular season matchups, gs can point to draymond missing both games, while the bucks can point out that they shot atrocious from 3 in both games yet blew out gs in one game and in the other were only down 7 entering the 4th qtr. the bucks offense is more than just giannis, everyone in the rotation can shoot the 3, they have other guys who can attack the basket too, and so far this postseason they have 7 guys averaging double figures in points.

    back to the wcf, portland is just a little brother that doesnt play defense version of pre-kd golden state. lillard has been off for awhile, he had a couple big games vs denver but overall for the series shot 28.8% from 3 and 40.7% from the field.

    wrote them off too early, good adjustments by toronto. they had the 2nd best record in the league for a reason and i was going to say i didnt expect them to just step aside like portland or hide in a corner like boston. as much as i was ready to crown the bucks, in the halfcourt this series theyve been completely stymied. giannis is going to have to start hitting some shots outside of the paint or they have to run more offense through other ppl because right now theyre running into a brick wall. it starts on the defensive end though, the bucks may need to focus on shutting down everyone other than kawhi.
