    Using an aggressive defense designed to key in on The Greek Freak, Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens had his defenders ignore perimeter shooters to wall off Giannis from the basket area, and it worked as the Bucks lost in a rout.

                    This is not rocketscience, you can't shoot 3s in todays GSW era, you ain't going far. It's that simple. No need to politic. Just tighten defence up, clog the paint and force 3s from poor shooters and watch the turnovers.

                            Giannis is 1/2 step past these guys on those drives. If he would just pull up for a short jumper it would be a foul every damn time - a la Embiid

                                The Celtic defense looks a bit harsh to be honest. Lots of pushing but no fouls called.
                                3pt stats from game 1 for bucks:
                                Giannis 3/5
                                Middleton 3/4
                                Lopez 1/4 (including an air ball)
                                Bledsoe 0/4
                                Ilyasova 0/5
                                Connaughton 1/7

                                Points: Only 3 bucks scored in double digits:
                                Giannis 22
                                Middleton 16
                                Mirotic 13

                                  Celtics are making a mistake. Now Giannis will 100% come back next season being a 3pt monster.

                                        2.21 is foul on Al. Btw celtics are boring. Except for Irvin. Seriously who wants to watch Al take an jump shot

                                                The bucks should let someone else runs the play instead of Giannis and make Giannis and Brook Lopez play more inside, they'll attract more attention which gives other players open looks, Lopez doesn't need to space the floor because Bucks have other good shooters.

                                                        At 2:22 the first block from Horford is a clear foul as he slams on his lower arm. The second was clean of course.

                                                                                          I pointed this out years ago when the Giannis wagon was filling up.
                                                                                          Guys easy to shut down, like Simmons but Simmons can pass.
                                                                                          I don't get the hype, he literally can only drive and score 3 feet from the basket.
                                                                                          Take that away, what can he do???.
                                                                                          I get bad shot selection, but y'all say MVP for a guy who is to scared to shoot, fuck shot selection. Dude is legit, to scared to even shoot open shots.
                                                                                          That's like calling someone a great soccer player, when they're to scared to kick the ball.
