When I look at the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, I am watching two teams in the Raptors and the Bucks, who are in tough. But the difference is the O.G. Anunoby gave the Raptors life at least for one more game as he hit a crazy three-point shot with 0.5 seconds left in the game on Thursday.
I didn’t see the same fight in the Bucks on Friday, down 2-0 to the Miami you would have thought that the Bucks would play with more desperation, and there were points in the game where they did but it just wasn’t good enough.
The Bucks were up by 12 going into the fourth quarter of the game, but we as fans know very well that no matter the sport, no lead safe. Bucks let the lead evaporate and let Jimmy Butler take over and the series as the Heat take game three 115-100.
So now what? Is the series over? is Milwaukee going to fold and go home or are Giannis and the Bucks going to fight to stay in the series, before the pandemic and cause the shutdown back in March all the sports experts had the Bucks coming out of the East.
I really feel that if the Bucks are to be the representative of the Eastern Conference, two things have to happen: 1 Giannis has to find his game again and 2. Bucks need to stop Jimmy Butler which is not going to be easy.
Four game on Sunday will do one of two things: Either the Bucks find way to win and save their season and live to play one more game or Miami moves on.
