Giannis, take a drive to whatever middle of nowhere MN town Kevin lives in and pay him to teach you something.

Also... why is Giannis posting Harden? Post defense is literally the only thing Harden is good at defensively because he's strong. Guy is a bad perimeter defender with a bum hammy, drive to the rack on him.

I dislike a lot of BKN's guys... but not KD. Dude is a freak, he wants to win, he's coming off an achilles and he's gonna play all 48 and personally destroy the Bucks.
I don't care if he's thin skinned on twitter, guy is amazing on the court.

I think Giannis should be posting KD. Make KD play defense as well as carry the offense.

Giannis statistically had a very good game, Durant just played out of his mind.

I think it's too late for that. Gotta wear him down early, KD on Giannis is a bad matchup for MIL, can't walk into a bad matchup just to hope the other guy misses a shot or two late. KD is the Nets' best defender. Harden or Harris and drive should be the move, but Giannis has FT yips in key spots so he won't (same problem as Simmons, can't drive late if you're afraid of getting fouled)>

Based on what I saw on the halftime show, the Bucks lost this in the first half by not being up 24 and instead only being up 16.

That was an all-time performance by KD. Literally the only way the Bucks would lose that game is if KD turned into Superman and he did.

Dammit. But impressive. This goes 7.
