MAN! What a wild finish that was!

Now the Bucks can close it out in front of their home fans on Tuesday!



God damn, what a collapse. Bucks should be able to wrap things up game 6...

Little did you know that Brandon Jennings is the literal reincarnation of the great prophet Nostradamus: BUCKS IN SIX!



Fun facts!

  • The Suns were 13-0 when leading by double digits at any point in a game during these playoffs. This is the first time they've lost when holding such a lead.

  • The Suns shot SIXTY-NINE PERCENT from 3 on the game! They took 11 threes in the first quarter  but only eight more for the final three. The Bucks shot a still spectacular 55 percent on 3s, but took 28 in the game.

  • Jrue Holiday's shooting in the series had been abysmal up until this game: 4-14 FG, 7-21, 8-14 FG, 4-20 FG. He broke out of the slump when the Bucks needed it most, going 14-20 on the night.

  • Chris Paul's scoring had gotten progressively worse over the course of the series until tonight: 12-19 FG and 32 points, 10-20 FG and 23 points, 8-14 FG and 19 points, 5-13 FG and 10 points. He broke out of his own slump with 9-15 and 21 points tonight, but it wasn't quite enough.

  • This was the first game in the series where both teams' Big 3, or at least top three scorers in the playoffs, all were the top three scorers for their respective teams. The Suns Big 3 (Paul, Booker, Ayton) combine for 81, while the Bucks Big 3 (Holiday, Middleton, Antetokounmpo) combine for 88.

HEY little boys, girls and nonbinary children, it's time for a game of "Pick Your Player"!

Who would you rather have between Player A and Player B in this year's playoffs?

Player A:

  • 27.7 points per game on .451 field goal percentage, .338 three point percentage and .903 free throw percentage
  • 5.8 rebounds per game
  • 4.5 assists per game
  • 3.6 turnovers per game
  • 3.4 personal fouls per game

Player B:

  • 23,.9 points per game on .436 field goal percentage, .345 three point percentage, and .882 free throw percentage
  • 7.7 rebounds per game
  • 5.1 assists per game
  • 3.1 turnovers per game

  • 7.7 rebounds per game
  • 5.1 assists per game
  • 3.1 turnovers per game
  • 2.5 personal fouls per game

So closely matched that it honestly doesn't much matter who you pick there. Guess I'd go with player A, just on account of being responsible for 10ish percent more points for their team, while being slightly more efficient from the field.

Don't know which is which, but I'm guessing this is Booker and Middleton, yes?



This is Booker vs. Middleton, isn't it?

Maybe... I was hoping more folks would make a pick before one of your brats let the cat out of the bag....

Game 6 in just a bit!

Will the Bucks capture their first championship in 50 years?

Or will the Suns force a critical Game 7 back home?
