    Expect to see more traps, doubles and/or exotic defenses vs. Harden in Bucks game.

    It’s possible the refs will call some ticky tack fouls against Giannis to compensate for all of the attention from last game

    More likely they double down.

    No team could trump Jazz exotic defense on him or no hands lebron defense.

    That Jazz defense was like the moronic version of Bucks defense on Harden.

    This is good news, both Connaughton and Bledsoe do a good job defensively on Harden.

    And it was Bledsoe that devised the Bucks unique defense of hugging Harden's left side to prevent driving left or step back 3's.

    Small ball's biggest advantage against traditional big lineup is speed. You can run guys like Jokic, Porzingis, Towns out of the gym but with Giannis The Bucks are bigger and still faster than us. There is no edge with small ball against the Bucks.

    Rox better bring there game, cause a lost could hurt them, and Thirsty 2 win blazers + Lakers next games are gonna be standing implications. Well see really how good this rockets team is. But really it dont matter, its all about getting into the playoffs, and show other teams how serious you are. There is no home court advantage or away advantage in this bubble, everything is pure best team wins.

    Small is about speed but moreso about skill.

    Rockets players are more skilled. Especially Big 3 of Harden, Westbrook, Covington.

    And Green is more skilled than any big off Bucks bench.

    I’ve noticed that this barely happens. Like the other poster said, they are more likely to double down on their bullshit as a way to passively aggressively defend their own refs.

    Last game is win by luck. They will try to double team harden again. I guess Gianns will use slam dunk to get many points. Our power forward and center have chances to get many fouls. The only thing is who to guard Middleton. Their bench is able to shoot too.
    Does 8 man rotation really can win?
    I suggest MDA can watch back last year Raptors vs Bucks video. It is helpful on defence.
    I suggest to give some time for prince, Carol and Tyson for this match.

    I wish I could be seven-feet, run and just dunk. That takes no skill at all.

    People in the world are only focus on action done, no one cares about using which kinds of method.
    Actually, they are copying the ways of o'neal and Duncan just playing in and out. Lakers and Bucks are the same, the only difference is the rest of.players are much stronger. If we have a strong center like Marc Gasol or Jordan in the middle, it has more chances to win. Houston does not have center. I hope Jordan can join Houston next year. The only way Houston can use is to use more rotation on the front court, I suggest MDA tries to use the brazil Durrant bruno, his long hands maybe able to do guard him for a while in 1st quarter.
