Aaron Nesmith will always be Marcus Smart in my heart.
Oh man, that was hilarious. The only thing that would have made it better was if Marv started attributing some of Nesmith's traits to Smart. "Marcus smart has a real bounce in his step tonight! He's looking quick!"

Middleton with three fouls in the second quarter in a game six where his team is leading the series with Foster and Brothers reffing. Even if the reffing is straight up, its an on brand look.

The Bucks' unwillingness to give it to Giannis every time down the floor until the Suns stop him is completely inexplicable.

What would suggest?
If I recall, in a game this year Scal proposed simply eliminating it and I found his argument compelling. His point was that it's hard to call right on putbacks when the ball is bouncing off on offensive rebounds. The Lopez play was pretty blatant, but a lot are much closer. He may have only been arguing post-rim contact though.

Phx not attacking Middleton is criminal. Closing in on 10 min with him on the floor with 3 fouls, without many attacks at him on D.

That Booker turnaround may have been the best iso defense ever played vs the best offense ever played. Wow!!

Mil is going to start making some shots, probably Middleton who has no business being in this game if the Suns actually took advantage of the NBA trying to gift them max player in foul trouble to extend the series.
Giving this game 2 min more before it becomes clear the Bucks will pull away.

Usually I correct others who say Giannis travels every play (he takes long steps!). But no, he is taking quite a few ACTUAL travels today.
