Nigeria Wins Historic Upset Over Team U.S.A. In Olympic Exhibition
"Men's Olympic basketball is up to eat. Well, um, it didn't start off well over the weekend, they had their first exhibition game against Nigeria in they lost What? 92 87. Team USA goes down, So we got that going for us. Wait a minute. Isn't Kevin Durant on that team? The guy that carry the Brooklyn Nets on his back. Of course. Kevin Durant. Bradley Beal Bam out of bio. Draymond Green Game. Dollar is on their Jayson Tatum. They've got a pretty good lineup. So they lost to Nigeria. Wait a minute. There's some Nigerian players who are actually NBA players. Right there are and there are a few NBA players missing from that team that are still playing in the finals. No Djourou HOLIDAY. No Chris Middleton know Devin Booker. But the Nigerian squad does have three guys from the Miami Heat roster. Also one of the Sacramento Kings, a guy for the Minnesota Timberwolves and one of Donovan Mitchell's teammates with the Utah Jazz. Good for them. Congratulations, Nigeria. I think they taught a valuable lesson to our Guys on USA team that always thinks it's going to just steamroll everybody. I hope so. Because the last time the U. S, the U. S men's national team lost an exhibition game. They finished seventh in the feeble World Cup just a couple of years ago, so Hopefully they right the ship and we don't have one of those performances in the Olympics.

"To be a guy who can score 25 You count on a guy like drew holiday to consistently knock down open shots, be able to slow down another teams, Uh, one of their top offensive guys and kind of do his role. Middleton a holiday haven't haven't provided Yanez with the support he needs. To go out there and win the first two games. 100% agree. I mean, especially with Yannis coming back after that horrific knee injury in Game one, Whatever you expect, And I think he gave it to you and more. And then he goes out for 42 12 in Game two, and you're like How could somebody else show up? You know this felt like that first LeBron final scene where Boobie Gibson was the second best player. You're like somebody else, help me out, and we would get there. You know you talk about the Packers. It kind of reminds people of some of these bad packers teams were Aaron Rodgers of the M V. P, and he's got no help whatsoever. You're like somebody do something. Um Chris Middleton is an enigma. He has been Incredible mean He's the kind of guy that can get you 23 a quarter that he did a couple of nights ago. And then he's last night or two nights ago. He goes one for six scores. 11 points. It makes $35 million like that is a guy that is supposed to be Robin. Batman and he was a joke. He was, you know, a complete embarrassment the other night if he hits Five more shots. The Bucks. Probably win it Drew holiday doesn't go. Seven of 21 hits five more shots. The Bucks probably win, but those guys, you know you're paying them a combined $60 million this year, and they have been the reason If you lifted point the finger. They have been the reason the bucks have lost the first two games. Uh, you know, be honest isn't without blame, though. Carrington, the guy still can't shoot free throws to save his life. He's shooting 54% in the postseason. It's in his head if he were to shoot 68% from the free throw line. This is a 20 series the other way and be honest when he's standing there and the defender of its 18 or whoever. Is playing eight FT off of him saying, Take the three even if you make it, I don't care because he's going to Jack up. Five more. That's low basketball IQ. He's got to figure out a way. To get that idea out of his head. Play aggressive, go to the whole. It's mine during the Big Three has to play better, but the Big Three have to play better in different ways. Janice has to be smarter. Middleton buckets and Drew Holiday has to hit buckets. Mike, If you had to say what the bucks need to do to win Game three and make this a series heading into Game four. What do you think that needs to be as the Bucks head back home? This is the dumbest thing. I can tell you, Carrington, but it shocked. Just make shots. I mean, Chris Middleton can't give you 11. He's got to give you 25 like you said, and you have to get offensive production out of Drew holiday, But I mean, Brook Lopez has been your second most consistent scorer. That's ridiculous. In 2021, you just need buckets from the other two of your big three. Last thing here, Mike, and I appreciate your time on this Saturday. Watching Aaron Rodgers body language during the match with Brady. He doesn't have. I'm not playing football this year energy. Maybe it's me just reading way too much into it. But just how he was answering questions and all of that he doesn't have the same. I'm never playing for the Packers energy that he had two or three months ago. Have said the entire time Carrington that I believe the Green Bay Packers have had the entire all of the leverage you want to play. We got a locker for you. You want to play? We got a paycheck where you want to play. This locker room is still your locker room. Don't worry about the kid we drafted. Everybody else wants you in here because if this is his last dance if this is his final run, just like Jordan with the Bulls make it one championship run. What a story That would be. You can go out of here. Better than red far you can hold all the records you can. You can. You can win one more championship, and I think he knows that. You know, Erin is not one of those guys that needs a ton of training camp. He doesn't need any preseason for the most part. He's got the offense. Doubt We saw it last year. I've always believed in my heart of hearts. Carrington At the Packers have had all the leverage. Aaron knows it. Erin wanted the summer off. Aaron got a summer off. I think he'll be there Day one of training camp. I think he'll be there. Game one against the Saints. I think as long as he stays healthy, he's going to have another year and the chip on his shoulder is The size of Wisconsin right now, so I have full faith Rogers will be back. That is Mike Wicked, joining us today to talk about the Milwaukee Bucks that they find themselves down 02 in the NBA Finals and a little bit of Aaron Rodgers. We get closer and closer to the start of training camp, Mike always good talking to you. Hopefully next week, we're still talking about games and not wrapping up the season for the Bucks. It is not Brewers season yet. All right. It is still box lead. It is absolutely still bucks season. Thanks, Mike. Carrington. That is my guy, Mike. Wicked joining us on the show today. Maybe I'm the only one that feels that way about Aaron Rodgers and I didn't watch all of the match. I probably watched about 4 to 5 holes of it. But Erin just doesn't have. I'm not playing football this year Energy Not on how he's answering questions. It seems to me that Aaron acted out. Really wanted to get out of his deal. The Packers said No, You're not getting out of your deal. You work for us, and Aaron just decided that I'm hanging out this Paul are this summer? Excuse me. Like I don't really think Erin's been doing a whole lot of preparation for the season. I think he knows at this point what he needs from his body to get going. He'll do that whenever it's time to really lock in. But until that, Yeah, I'm playing golf. I'm with my fiancee. I'm hanging out with my famous friends like I'm not really too interested in coming to show up for you guys and do all this optional stuff. I don't need the money. I'll show up when I'm ready. I think he'll be there. When he's ready. He'll probably miss the first week for a little bit of Hey, I'm still Air Rogers. He'll show up and he'll go to play for the Green Bay Packers. I just haven't seen anything over these last couple of weeks when I mean they were trying to sell this thing. I mean, how many zooms did we see with all four of these participants? Erin didn't really have the Yeah, I'm not playing this year like this is going to be what I'm going to be doing all the time. I didn't really get that vibe from him. We can talk about that coming up on the other side. I do want to open up the phone lines and give you guys a chance to react 855 to 1 to 4 to 27. What do you think the bucks need to do to get back into this series? They have lost the first two games. I saw a stat. The teams that go up to Oh, in the NBA Finals when 86% of the time that's 14% that somebody else wins. What are the What are the bucks need to do to find themselves back in this series? We'll take your phone calls coming up on the other side 855 to 1 to 4 to 27. But first, let's get to a CBS Sports radio update with my guy Pete McCarthy.

"He is the go to score on this roster you had in a number one pick, and Kate Cunningham, the Pistons future folks. Just stepped over the Tigers, the Lions and the Red Wings. The Pistons have got the brightest future in Detroit right now, because of this number one pick in this one guy because that's just what he is. He's a 68 point guard. They can do everything on the floor. Yep, exactly. We have not had that in forever. Not at all. And this is you know, I've been thinking about this. What? Destroy Weaver, you know, tell tells organization tell the coaches let's say they go out and you know we've talked about a future top 10 pick. What if you what if you what if you're off to a hot start? What if you win 15 of the first I'm just putting numbers out here. 15 of the 1st 20 games. 10 out of the 1st 20 games, right? I mean, that's still 500. Do you say all right, We're gonna We're going to play your hardest. But if we are we going to tank and get a get another topic or, you know if they start hot, are we just gonna run with it? I think that's a question asked as well because you never know what this group of guys who what else do we need? We need some bench. Help that. I think you're I think you're starting five is locked. Solid. Yes, for the next 10 years, hopefully Um But this bed should it still needs some work. But there's three or four guys that can really come out here and perform. You got David Smith junior coming back, and that's a guy that's gonna He played really well with the Pistons, The Derrick Rose trade But there's still some guys. I think that if you can go out there and get, uh, maybe an elite point guard, maybe even Kelly and Hes can come off the bench because In the market to not now with the draft. If you could just go out and get someone I don't think you'd already in that, Cunningham. I don't think you need to do you don't know, but I think you need an elite point guards. Still, it wouldn't hurt to You know, it's like a Russell Westbrook caliber guy fell into your lap. Or if you know, uh, maybe Chris Middleton type guy like a small floor that can really score. I don't know. Jeremy Grant can really score the basketball but We're gonna have to ask him to play before this next season. So we're going to we're going to really undersized team with You know, a 68 point guard, which is hard to believe, which means, you know they're going to have to run. I mean, they're going to have to beat teams with their feet and, you know, not not lay off the gas pedal. When you have a small lineup like that, you have to shoot. And you're going to have to be able to run. They're going to have got to shoot. I know City Bay was locked down three point shooter this year, Jeremy Grant. Uh, Upped his percentage of being a long line this season, but Billion. Heyzer really needs to get an offensive game. Yes, because if he doesn't if he takes a step back from where he was this year He's not going to be in league. He's not gonna make the team. Uh, in two years, you won't be on the roster. Um, because We're just going to keep going without him. This franchise was built around Killian this past year. That's what we thought now that we weren't expecting it the number one pick this season. I thought the Pistons are gonna be around like the 56 mark going into the lottery, but we could Slipping and slipping and slipping until we get the number one pick, and now it's Kate Cunningham's team. Okay, so if you don't perform Gillian, the team's going to move on without you, but I really want killing his to succeed. I want him to be a past first point guard that can also Go get 11 12 points a game and give you nine assists a game with seven rebounds. That's the caliber kid that he is. He's not a guy that's going to give you 45 points a game like you see something point guard nowadays, like Steph Curry is putting up 30 points a game, which is ridiculous. But a gala Killian Hayes, if you can give you 12 to 15 9 and seven Then you added a guy like cake cutting him with the backcourt. Oh, my goodness. Totally fine. Totally fine with that because you can kind of hide them if you can give him 15 to 9. Nine assists. A crash services. Yeah, uh, but the Pistons future folks is looking bright. This number one pick means so much to the city after Stan van completely botched every single draft that he had They're handed speaking of him. He just got let go from the pelicans. Yes, because he might his coaching career might be over. It needs to be. He needs to be an analyst Now. He was really good on ESPN. When he was he was, Yeah. But now he's uh, his career needs to be wrapped up because I think he's more of an old style type guide to because he loved Andre. He loved Dwight when he had him in Orlando. And that's not the NBA anymore. It's not his time anymore. Like Isaiah Stewart is kind of great. I hate to make this comparison. I know he's like a baby Ben Wallace. But the way that he runs the floor is like a Christian Would. Yeah. Why He's lean and you can jump at the gym. Yeah, He's in shape, too. I mean, when I for you know, when you first look at the guy you're like, all right, You know, he's an undersized center. Probably a little slow, but I mean, he checked all the boxes for, you know, hustle, hard work and heart. So I mean, that's that's what the Pistons need. They need someone like that, but again in their franchise. Yeah, And the funny thing is Isaiah Stewart. Kind of, uh, Something the radar in the hands of Tom Izzo. Cause he was Michigan State. That's right. He was in the top two, and he ended up going to Washington. And speaking of that, I wonder if he ended up collecting a nice little paycheck from Washington head out there because Stewart was like a huge like Top five recruit coming out of high school. He ended up going to Washington. And now, two years later, college players can be paid. We'll circle back to that that was breaking news..

Bucks Bounce Back to Beat Nets and Force Game 7
"We begin today with the milwaukee bucks going wire to wire to defeat brooklyn by fifteen points last night. Kevin durant scored thirty two for brooklyn but it took him thirty shots to get it. Chris middleton and janta compo- were much better they combined for sixty eight points and twenty seven rebounds and they shot twenty-three for thirty six wilpon does milwaukee's performance lead you to believe they can go to brooklyn and win game seven they can. Yes tony and you outlined all the important numbers all of them. And then there's one that's even more important it's zero number of three pointers jacked up by answers compo- none he didn't do it. He kept his big strong quick fast. Talented self in the space where he should be. Don't eat what you. I've been screaming for even the previous series. He kept himself near the basket and did his work there and stop jacking up those shots now. We know they can do it will they. I mean that's the first smart gamed. The bucks have played in. This series should have won the series already. If they had taken the same tact particularly with onto the kupu. But i do. I have faith that they will go with that same recipe. I don't know that. I have that faith. What about you. okay. So yes i agree with you that they can win right and one of the ways they could win as if pj tucker was able to do to kevin durant again in game seven what he did in game six. Because tucker was plus thirty and durant was minus seven but mike game six was not critical for brooklyn. They had a game to play with because the critical game for them was game five and they want it so for every home team has won. You have to tell me why that's going to change now. I look back on game five. And i see kevin durant scoring forty nine points. He's a great great player. I somehow have faith that if it's up to him to win game seven at home. He's going to win it.

"Factor of the bucks. Get James Harden. Is Yannis onto the Campo. Want to get rid of Chris Middleton. Does he say? I need someone better than Chris Middleton Toe win. And I'll get rid of Chris Middleton in order to bring in James Harden. That's the way that deal could work, however. Has just Chris Middleton. Get it done. Probably not. But the Rockets are looking for a player and picks and what picks to the bucks. Have. They just traded away at least three first round picks and two swamps. For Drew Colony. Then the last one Miami. They just had a deal. Done with Bam out of bio. You're not getting rid of Bam! You're not getting rid of Jimmy Butler. Would you maybe get rid of Tyler hero? I would get rid of Tyler here for James Harden. And then you've got to give a picks. That doesn't seem to me though. Yes. Get in the superstar. Get another player and James Harden. That's a Pat Riley move. I think Pat Riley takes a lot of pride and dressed in Tyler hero. I don't think he's going to give him up. So pretty much the verdict here is James Harden to me is not anywhere closer to getting traded, and he's got to keep on picking up the intensity on the drama wheel. And then the deal will get done because he could get some power here And then a lot of teams could be opted out. They don't wanna You know if James Harden doesn't want to go to let's say he eventually turned around, so I don't wanna go in the bucks. Then the bucks aren't gonna give up significant capital toe. Go get him, So it kind of takes two to tango here, where it's weird, hardened still under contract. He could still have some leverage with just the way that the MBA works.

Rational trade going on and not just They're just little ones. I mean, these are big time moves, you know, with holiday and you know Trevor Rees. It was right before that, Chris Paul.

Keyshawn J Will and Zubin sift through it this morning woes will help them out just after eight o'clock. Eastern time Right now, SportsCenter all night baseball. It has been no whirlwind few days for Qiming in Miami, hired Friday as the Marlins general manager. She's the first woman to run the baseball operation side of a gun organization, and she admits her phone has blown up. You know, I've just completely humbled by the reception that I've gotten from all walks of life from all different people. Crossing all different disciplines, So it's been awesome. The last 72 hours have been a whirlwind but so happy to share with so many people and hopefully inspiring generations to come. I read where you said that's more than 1000 calls, texts, emails, So I asked this question Understanding that there is a mountain to sift through. But is there one Kim and specifically that landed with you in such a way that you really were able to grasp the reach that this news was having it wasn't necessarily a text or email. But Michelle Obama tweeted on Friday about my hiring, and I think that's what it really Resonated when it really just struck me of the history that had been made on and just how awesome this was for sports for baseball for the country for women. At this time, but honestly, Kim, I don't think that it's gender or sports specific. The idea that what five different times you have a seat at the table with an interview and a possibility to be coming, general manager and it doesn't work out and I just I think that it's instructive to me or anybody watching what you were able to hang on to in terms of belief that okay, I can do this. I'm going to do this. How are you able to to maintain the resolve? You are who you are. You know what you're gonna do Just lay down. No, you have to keep going. And as long as There's opportunity to do have a seat at that table. You must take it and you know, and I said earlier today, even if you think it's not for real, you must take it for others. And so that the story is alive and so that people keep seeing the possibility even if it didn't and even if it doesn't come to fruition. That's what I always felt was that you know my name. I didn't have to be mining. It had to be somebody, but you have to keep that hope alive. For others.

Do Lakers deserve an asterisk for 2020 championship run?
"Got mentioned Perc said, no Asterix Brian Windhorst are ESPN NBA insider on the hoop collective podcast whether he thinks this title and remember he's been around Lebron longer than anybody that's been covering him whether this title is free clear and legit. I just have really strong beliefs that winning a championship is so hard. No matter. The circumstances that there's never an Asterik I'll I'll never ever I gotta be careful being so you know absolute but I just never believed that I and so this year. I thought that the level of play was great and I thought that the level that the Lakers showed in this bubble was spectacular. They are the absolute worthy champions. It's fair enough. The offense in the bubble especially was at another level. I don't understand why people would even have that conversation I mean you gotTa. All. NBA Players. And all the coaches and the people that have come on with US clearly state how hard it here's the plane of bubble without fans in you have to motivate yourself. I've gone through this many times trying to explain to people. They're stuck in an environment with no fans limited family and supporting family members and friends around. They're stuck in a hotel room not stuck in a ten thousand square foot house. This stuck in. Hotel Room One TV. Okay wallpaper on the walls. You can hear the next door neighbor a thin walls like really like and they're eating basically the same sort of gourmet cookie. There is no going out and getting this. It's totally different. I am not going to do a disservice to the Lakers by giving them Astros for this year saying, Oh, this is crazy. It's insane what they've been able to pull off during a pandemic during social justice all the things they've stood for not being around their family to do this wasn't insane insane year end insane accomplishment, but but. I do look forward to next year. That was your Asterik, I do I do I do afford to win Steph? Curry Klay Thompson draymond green when they're fully healthy what they can bring to the table I. Do look forward to seeing what the clippers will bring to the table and if they actually do how higher coach right if they actually do meet in the playoffs how that will be the coli that's pg going Lebron James and I do look forward to seeing you know Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving and Brooklyn what that brings it a table what happens with the would milwaukee and Jaanus. Could they get a Bradley bill to come to the table that missing link with Chris Middleton? There are a lot of things that look forward to next year considering if teams have to go on the road and when that or how that stuff plays out when it's not at a new site. So never going to disservice this was one of the most incredible things I've ever seen, but I do so why? So why are people out there trying to do a disservice given ashes to the? Lakers. Why? I I think people were doing that at the beginning by saying, Hey, you know you're not GonNa but They didn't make any sense he. Didn't make any sense I mean those are the people that haven't been to the bubble that haven't left their family for three and a half four months that don't know what the social pressure is the pressure to be alone to handle all that stuff there somewhere else.

Whenever something fresh drops, you'll get it. You'll be able to get right into it right away. All right, let's get into the two teams are on the precipice of getting to the Eastern Conference finals. I mean, I don't know about you. But Miami and the Boston Celtics. Sounds awfully awfully good for the right to go and play for the N ba finals, doesn't it? Yeah, No, I think it definitely does. Miami has just been They have that they have that intangible about them. I mean, you could talk about all the statistics and Jimmy Butler and Bam and Tyler hero who was just ridiculous, almost singlehandedly snatching game Game four. Away from the Bucks on DH, forcing them into a suite. But it's really about that. There's there's just a grit that they have you Khun seeing how they play, and Jimmy Butler was really interesting after their game four loss to the box, which extended kept them. Alive in the series, and I mean we talked about it earlier, Chris Middleton just had a ridiculous day showed that he can, In some cases be the leader can be the catalyst. For that team. We score. 36 points mean maybe 38 in that game, But he said Jimmy Butler said they took their foot off the gas and they were right. You could see it. A soon as Yang has got hurt in the second period, it was almost like the Miami Heat took a like a collective. Okay, good. Always got to do is finish this thing out and soon as you do that, That's when you get taken advantage of, and that's exactly what happened. You know, Listen, I'm gonna go back to something I said after Game one. That was an 11 point when by the heat, and some people were surprised at it. We weren't some people were, though. And you know the heat hung a buck 15 on and they were pretty good defensively, but the one thing that I said, I thought that this would portend good things for the For the heat moving forward as if to, you know, classify that with that win in game what is anything but an anomaly? What I tell you, Duncan Robinson on Lee Hit 13 that game. Tyler hero Wass three for 11 shooting the ball. None was three for nine. They got no contributions from their bench. They still one by 11 points, double figures going away against a team that You know is supposed to be playing for championship at this point, so I was not surprised. They beat him in Game one, and I'm certainly not surprised that they jumped on him and or went away for moving on. It's unfortunate and I don't even know Dionysus status yet. I know guys like Barclay have been saying you have to play if it's you know, if it's that kind of an injury, you have to play. You got to suck it up. You know, like I can't move. I mean, it is. Listen, I've got doubts about his three point shooting prowess or I mean, everybody does because the stats say that, But more specifically, I have doubts as to whether or not he'll ever be. Even passable at that. And at the free throw line, you know, seven years into your career, you should be a little bit better at this point. That's on. I've said that for a while, but you cannot question this man's heart. I know there's no doubt ya just wants to play. But even if he does play And even if they get a Willis Reed like effort, people are inspired and he only hits a couple of buckets, but they win. I would still probably picked the heat to win the next game and close the mountain Six. Yeah, No, I think you're I think you're right. And I think You know, Johannes the issue with this team, and maybe they learn something about the bucks. Now that the issue with the Bucks is that it's felt so Johannes Heavy, like so different hair day on a century since not not even sentry, because he's not. He's not the point guard even though there were so many sets in half court sets, words like Why is he handling the ball? You know what I mean? Like, why is he up the key and tryingto You know, be the like that at the top pick. Maybe the facilitator in the pick and roll just doesn't make any sense right? Because it's not his his natural skill set, but what might have occurred With Chris Middleton having the day that he had is it Bud will say All right, Be honest. Let's put you in a position where you're not working so hard where I mean, you literally watch the heat defenders. When Yana says, the ball at the top of the key, and it's like they're not worried about anybody else right there. They're just they're basically trapping him wherever he is, and He's a good passer. He's not like an elite also know he's not so when he gets in that situation. It's like he's panicked and you can see he's not comfortable. And as a result, Not only does he not, you know score. He's not being supportive of his skill set. He's also not helping anyone else be better. So it's just it's just a bad game plan. And I'm surprised that they've stuck with it for so long now, when he got hurt in Game four, all of a sudden it was, like, all right, we gotta we gotta pick this thing up and do it differently and by being forced to do it differently. Maybe they learned something. I still don't think it's enough for them to beat the heat because of the grit that the heat have, and the depth really that they have. They can still defend her after defender at anybody on def They hadn't Jimmy Butler said, taking the foot off the gas..
Max Has NO FEAR FOR THE DEER + Nick Nurse ‘Coaching Clinic’
"That's not a bad shot wasn't a bad shopping to see not it was a bad shot. But how did they beat Philly? Was that a good shot? Just tell me that was was that a Nick nerve-wracking. This is the best coach you can do we need to Coalinga. Is that the best player you go? Okay. So this is what is what I wanted to hear from you mind me getting that. I mean running off the corner going all the way following the way from the three-point line that that was the way you designed. This is where I'm getting that thing. Okay. So then let's talk about that. Then ignorant didn't have a play lined up in that situation or at least we maybe didn't have the the player. Maybe maybe that's it. In my opinion. He said, you know what they figure things out up to this point. I'm going to let them just keep going cuz I have nothing and that's a problem that's off. Can't be that kind of Coach into play. I believe in this situation that Brad Stevens to me and although Nick nurse is the coach of the year. I like Brad Stevens home is a knows better now like next Nur Nick nurses X's and O's I think he is. I think he gets guys in places. They need to be and it has really worked out well for so so I don't I don't necessarily think that yeah, you want some people that call timeout. Okay, you can call timeout but now you give the other team opportunity to self esteem. So if I promise up until you come down to your file before guy gets into the act of shooting Mean there are a bunch of things. You can talk about that. You can't talk about on the flyer. So that's a good point because you if you're Brad Stevens, I'm telling my guys to foul. They needed three follow. Yeah, but they they going to do that. They did not going to do that because they didn't have that opportunity to think about it. They just play what time on the situation you have more time to think about. Absolutely so that maybe it's why Nick nurse doesn't call a time-out init work off. All you were trying to do is get a decent. Look at it three point shot got a decent Loop. Don't miss don't miss out on this one. It's your chance. You know, Cedric Maxwell says go down absolutely had to betonline.ag today and take advantage of all the great signup bonuses betonline.ag your online sportsbooks experts and it now I don't know man. just feel like when it comes down like you say like when it comes out and accessing those late-game situations, I'm taking Brad Stevens over over Nick nurse all day them, but when Nick nurse but some guy told me later on or off. Yeah, some guy told me the other day on the radio from Toronto said Nick nurses by the arrestee was a give him a clinic in coaching. Okay. Oh, I thought that goes but this is my thing with him. This beef with Nick you you played out that situation, right? It didn't pan out obviously depend on welfare. But you know, you played that card whatever it is what it is right off of 20 minutes later. So it was a microphone in your face and you're gonna complain about oh Jason Tatum got their free throw line too many times all the favors. I mean, excuse me, all the referees gave him that one come on and while you're trying to put up there and you're trying to put something in somebody's you're trying to put some because if it's not working you're down to well, you're trying to put your grabbing it whatever you can grab that actually the course of the year. You're trying that your job. Well, you're grabbing it what you can grab it. See I can really hasn't been that guy you know that said, oh my God, there's no way to stop. I'll come David Jaylen Brown has done a nice job. I'm just I sewing being one off. Woman with G acha you gotta yeah, and they haven't really had to double-team. That's true. So, you know what Jaylen brown hair but his defense has been underrated. How about the time that Jaylen Brown? I mean you're talking about quickness thought he ripped off calorie calories was dribbling and it was like stripping. Well, yeah look like look like brown was in The Matrix the way he went across and grabbed the basketball game. Carolina was sent he was going back the other way know when the ball on the floor you you ain't got it no more. I looked at him. Where did it go with so long? I mean, it's been it's been eye-opening to see some of the some of the situations and even now down that bubble people talk about or you know, what's going on with Milwaukee Milwaukee is trademark what they do. They give up three's what does what does Miami like to do? Oh you take the reason you're walking Milwaukee is given that more FAQ. To anybody else. So Miami's Forte there strip is shoot the three. Yeah. So if you ever team does knocking down threes in a regular area off and you you're struggling right now with, you know, Yiannis and Middleton and you know, they play great against the Celtics but they've had a you know, Jonas has been if they use the series honest is going to be exposed again time to time MVP. I agree with that. Well, the biggest reason why I agree with that is because you you got a 27-point performance out of Chris Middleton office and you couldn't make that a win like that's a big. Well somebody else involved in this. Well, that's what I'm saying. You know his Lopez involved. Where is Lopez build out. 1 game? Okay lower game loading again if off on your scores Seventeen eighteen, you're in trouble. Well, we're we're and that's the thing about picking up your teammates like somebody who's like Kimba. Okay. Kimball didn't was barely scored and Marcus fairly score. Yep. You had somebody else that kind of shoulder the load until those guys got it together and you look at blood. So what's blessed done during the series always been a little banged up. So I don't I don't trust them this man. This is obviously I've never been like like that's always in my thing Milwaukee. Yiannis is going to be honest, but I don't trust your boys like your squad is shaky Milton will give you those 30.93 here and there but need to make sure those are wins you can give those up Jerry has travels big man. I really like Miami and new series. I just like their Focus right now, too. Yeah. I totally agree. I think again to see to me, it's Jimmy Butler Factor. Yeah, because they those dudes right now bam alabado guys, like they're they're taking on that same Persona is Jimmy Butler like, you know jumping off. Yeah. I mean Jimmy brother man. I mean he said about when you asked about guests and family come into the bubble was you said he I'm not bringing anybody man. This is a business trip. Wow. While I said liked that I've always been among. I
Butler Scores 40, Miami Heat Top Bucks 115-104 For 1-0 Series Lead
"The Milwaukee Bucks scored forty points in the first quarter. Last night for an eleven point lead in game one of their second round NBA playoff series with. MIAMI. But things fell apart after that and Jimmy. Butler got hot for the heat solder will work against Middleton. Topped out at eight put the three out Kyrie gotta go Mike Goodness Jimmy Butler second. Of the night. It's Mike English sunset and ninety, the ticket Butler scored fourteen of his career playoff high forty points in the fourth quarter in Miami beat Milwaukee one, fifteen, four mostly credits Jimmy I thought he had several if not all of the shots he may tough shots he's capable given credit you made them but. The defense while we can always be better I. think it was a case and making tough shots. Bucks committed nineteen turnovers miss twelve free throws gave up forty two points in the paint and were out rebounded forty, six, thirty, four, Chris Middleton scored twenty eight before fouling out. Brook. Lopez added twenty four while Janas unto. Kubo didn't play as well as we expect Janas had eighteen points, ten rebounds and nine assists but committed six turnovers and missed eight of twelve free throws I want to be more. Obviously you know when you the game is over and you have the the sheet at, you'll see twelve shots you gotta wonder. Why the issue more could have been more aggressive but I think now just tried to make it up playing style was my whole game. You know whether lose you got two bucks didn't have point guard Bledsoe who sat out with a strained right hamstring status for game two tomorrow night is unclear
Smart: Refs overturned call to keep Giannis in

Milwaukee improves to an MBA best 54 12 moved within a window of clinching the top seed in the East for a second straight year, Nagumo was called for a charging fowl, appearing to negate a basket and giving him 1/6 foul. The call It was changed to a blocking foul on Marcus Smart after review Smart and Johannes with this take postgame the recession and said I was late. Frankly, I think we all know what that was about six. I didn't want to get him out. Just call a spade A spade is what it is speaking as a player. I think he's a good player. I think Well, in that respect about that is the first floor peaches May he plays hard. He was the best player. I think he's a bad person that day. That's his opinion. He was moving in last place, but either way it away if he was charging he was not sore. I'm having going to win and away from this place, it was changed. Call Chris Middleton, 18 for the Bucks Smart 23. Jalen Brown, 22 with Jason Tatum, just five points on to off 18 shooting.

They've got a great record. Got To all-stars they've got Pascal. Siachen run up and down the floor. They just beat the pavement by forty six points. But I don't really respect them in the eastern conference. Joe Is something about that and I don't know why because would you pick them against the bucks this series. Would you pick up against this? Other sincerest against the heat in the series. The reason we don't feel good about him is they look like the same team last year except they don't have quiet litter. What's the reason that JEB last year? Hand lettered so. I think this is a big game for the raptors. But I'm telling you I get a little more skeptical of the butts. Every time I watch like last time I watched it and I was like okay. So Chris Middleton does look like a guy who can get his second shot. But what's going to happen when people start sending Janas to the line right Zillur shoes? I sixty one percent. He doesn't shoot. Three's well he's still only shooting like thirty one percent in December. He was good outside of that. Not so much like I feel bad about the way that I feel about the best. Feel bad about the patch.

"Milwaukee by twenty tonight on their bench. The last game. They outscored them by twenty-five via their bench. So you're getting benched production from Toronto and you're getting a star albeit injured playing like a superstar. And that's what this comes down to. Yeah. Once that happened as he mentioned, the game was turned around quiet thirty five huge Janas, two dozen needed. More as fellow all star, Chris Middleton only had six points Tim Legler on sportscenter with s VP this step back three. He's added to his game over the last couple of years. That makes makes them potent star player. There's no answer for because I got controlling my handle. I can make plays off the dribble could make a shot from anywhere. But walk is star not quite there yet with that. And so they have situations that our offense bogs down to really cost them. It's interesting looking at the roster construction where these guys have come from the contributions of aband- lead in this game. Is there a seven game in Milwaukee? Or is it done in game six, I'm not gonna put it against Milwaukee went into, but it feels to me, like the Toronto Raptors believe now they've solved this riddle and they're going to win this because they, they've got some role players that have really stepped up to feel comfortable. Speaking of role players Milwaukee got just fifteen points off their bench. A dozen of those points from George hill, the four other players that played off the pines combined for just three points. Cow Lowry now has eleven hundred and twenty six points in sixty six playoff games for. Toronto. Surpassing damore derozen as a franchise postseason scoring leader. His focus is now on game six. And of course, you know, we never put is down. We never thought it was going to be oh, we never thought of easy, we still don't take is going to be easy Nate protected their home court, and we went we went home in protect their own court. And they came back here and got a win tonight. And we understood by this in is the Eastern Conference finals. You know it's not going to be easy. It's going to be tough. And you got you know a team down. There has really, really towns. They really, really good. But, you know we just go out there and play our game.

"Knows their role on this team. This'll every you know, what he's done to make help make the same successful this season. Yeah. I mean, you're absolutely right. When you look at the the roster a lot of the guys that the key players. At least Eric Bledsoe. Chris Middleton Jaanus were all here last year. Obviously, they added breath Lopez they added Nico miratec. They ought to George hill. But there are two players were all the. The biggest difference the biggest, you know, signing. If you will was was my food and holes, and what she did is he came in. And he said look we want to space the floor for Janas with shooters. We don't want Chris Middleton taking those mid range jumper is that he was taking a lot of in years past we want three point shooting, and we want to take it to an extreme level. And then the other thing that that that he wanted to do was was just, you know, build a culture within the bucks that is a little bit of silliness, but a lot of hard work. And so I think that that has become a top down thing. And then the third thing is, you know, he's really been careful with guys minutes in the regular season, Chris and and Janas played a ton last year, and they played a lot this year, but they really scaled back the lot. And now you're seeing not lay out in the offs where they're not fatigued from the regular season. Even though they won sixty games week Andrews is with us on ESPN radio. Jeff dickerson. Mike wells in for Spain and Fitz bleak. I spend a lot of time around the bucks this season. What would it mean to this franchise to get to the conference finals for the first time? And what is it seventeen eighteen nineteen years something like that? What would it be for them? I mean, you know, Jaanus with a with a child last time that the bucks made it that far in two thousand and one, but you know, the thing for for the bucks. What would it mean to them is that a lot of people still think of the bucks, it's sort of this up and coming franchise it has something to prove? They're ready to shed that identity and say, we're here we've arrived where the real deal, you know, I think a lot of people wrote off the the first round series against Detroit as oh, it's just Detroit. Even if the bucks did sweep that series. The first real test will come against the Celtics. And now they're looking to close out the Celtics and five games to perhaps if that happened on a national, and maybe even international level because of Janas popularity overseas. People will see them as a force to be reckoned with and not just a cute story anymore. Thank you so much for the time. Enjoy the game tonight. Thanks for having me guys Balik Andrews can NBA reporter covering the Celtics in bucks. Joining us on the shell Pennzoil performance line. I mean, Mike look the last time the bucks made the conference finals was two thousand and two thousand one when they lost a AI in the seventy Sixers we're talking it's a long time before that eighty five eighty six that's good teams back in the early nineteen eighties. But nevertheless in Crete type days back in back in the eighty s in the as I mean in the seventies. They were winning championships back in the day fear the deer back in the early seventies. But it has the bucks being this relevant. It's been such a long time. And they really are. They're they're a great story and Yanni's is is a great centerpiece to this thing and to close out the Celtics that would just be monumental for that franchise. What's impressive about it? This is not a large market team. I mean, you know, Milwaukee's right up the road from you in Chicago. And again, Chris Middleton and Janas degree for the two officers on the team. They have done a great job of putting the pieces of the puzzle around those guys where everybody knows those roles, but they commit a great point about surrounding Janas with shooters. That's exactly what Cleveland LeBron James gave him shooters on a primitive and allowed open up delaying to drive. That's exactly what's happening in Milwaukee with the Greek freak and now they're going to close out. Yes. They are going to close out the Boston Celtics tonight and moved to the Eastern Conference finals,.

"Just listen. Now, we're not gonna talk about it. Again. We might. Yeah. Yeah. So anyway, the Lakers backup plans might be gobbled up in free agency. The backup plans are guys like Kemba Walker. Right. Chris middleton. There was a story in the athlete a few weeks ago about the someone to LeBron James camp saying it's not about names. It's about games, right? As in people who fit around LeBron James and the Dallas Mavericks. It's been reported today are going to be they're going to be players in free agency. And they've got your boy, Luca Don-Shik. And I say that because for those that don't know Meena did the big feature on Luca last year. Right. Yeah. That in a year. And and they've got porzingus and he'll be back healthy. So and they're going to be players in free agency. And they've got a nice little group there. It seems like so Kemba Walker and Chris Middleton are on their list of like their main targets so Kemba is gonna have options and Middleton's can have options, obviously, he can stay with Milwaukee and chemicals they were Charlotte 'cause they give them the most money and Kemba could go to the Knicks or Brooklyn or the Lakers. There's a lot of different options. But the the point is that if you're the Lakers you're going to have a lot of competition here this off season. And it's that that creates some challenges with a front office Meena that let's say is a work in progress at the moment. This torch watching the playoffs over the last few days because we talk the guys who we have been talking about as second tier options in free agency Kemba Jimmy Butler, Chris Middleton. Doc Kemba because down the playoffs. Sorry, but Chris Middleton, and Jimmy in particular have been awesome awesome in the plan. Those to you see what Chris Middleton did. And I know I know that they're not Anthony Davis. I know they're not quiet. I know they're not kyri. But I dunno for for it gave me a glimmer of hope like man, if it's Lakers were able to get one of these guys he would still be it wouldn't be Davis. I feel like the amount of energy time emotional space in our hearts, we've devoted towards Anthony. Davis has maybe blinded us a little bit to how much better the Lakers could be with these guys. Yeah. I mean, I agree. I just think that the interesting part about all of this is that they can still get Anthony Davis in twenty twenty. They'll just have to make more moves because he's going to be a free agent at that point. They just have to free up the space. But it's easier to free up the space when you've got players that people covet absolutely onto newly. I mean, so yeah. So that that's part of the equation to you know, what I mean? So and the reality is the unfortunate part for Brandon Ingram is though he was playing as great as he was at the end of the season. But his season was cut short because of a health scare and he is not a tradable commodity at this point. You know, what I mean like other teams are not looking at him as someone they're interested in trading for until they see that he can be healthy and not just healthy for a couple of months. You know, and that's going to be a decision Los Angeles can have to because I agree with you. I think it's going to be whatever return they give for him likely will not be worth his value because of the health thing, right? It won't be worth. The Brandon Ingram. We started to see again at the end of the season. Which makes me hope that the Lakers don't settle for less than he did less than he's potentially worth because they would be selling low on Brandon Ingram at this point. And he was so good at the end of the year. So I don't know. I think I think of a future I'm trying to be optimistic. The lakers. Is what you're saying with him. It could be a blessing in disguise for the Lakers to be honest. If he comes back healthy. Yeah, potentially..

"Four minutes a game. And then Browns Brown's two way game has been really good now for I would say three months Horford is rounded into playoff for for for him. And Rozier is is the eighth man on this team. And that's somebody. He would've played thirty five minutes a game for Indiana. You know when their guy you've been so heading for this Milwaukee series. On the one hand you say they finally figured out. Here we go. And then the other hand it's like such a dramatic difference to input walkie in the end. It's like night and day. And they don't have home court. They they don't really have anyone guard Janas, but nobody does her for they can build the wall and do all that stuff. Middleton's the problem. They have to figure out how to take up Middleton because he killed them last year. He kills them all the time. And that is where that is where it's funny with Hayward of respect with the offense the defense where they really need him because they need Jalen, and they need Horford to slow down Chris Middleton. And if they do it'll be a serious, I think. I just I, you know, watching them all year and to see people after these four Pacers game going up new they'd figure it out. We're doing after game two. It's like they're supposed to win at home for two games. They're eight point favorites. I'm not I'm not going to you know, what I'm gonna do. I'm not gonna fall into that trap. That goes I think they can give a walkie now. I'm just not I gotta see I got to see this version of it against Milwaukee. But again, you know, if you watch these games like look at the Denver, I know we're gonna expended Sunday time and Denver San Antonio. 'cause I'm still kind of lost on that one. But those games have been entirely different. I know what's happened individually Jamal Marie history. The up and down this of it. Milwaukee may come out in run them ragged or game. One boston. They're going to have so much time off, by the way. Yeah. That from what I'm hearing that game one is gonna be till Sunday. The earliest would be Saturday. So yeah gets Sunday Sunday Tuesday. So yeah, I mean. You get a week off. That's great for the Celtics. But Milwaukee's gonna.

"And go after some be level guys that they're going to be stuck with. Here's I I actually disagree to some to some degree actually disagree with you. And this may come down to how you're defining be level star be level player, but they have to build an actual team. Like, they just kick this down the road. They can still do that. Without investing a ton of money and say, okay, for example. Would you feel that the Lakers would be contenders? Okay. If they went out and got. Jimmy Butler and DeMarcus cousins t to add with LeBron James. I don't think so I don't think they want to championship with that team. I I'm not a big Jimmy Butler fan in terms of just the mileage that he has right now. I I don't think he's the right guy to put a long side. Lebron right? But what if say they added in a I don't think this is necessarily possible. But if they added like Nikola vucevic and Chris Middleton who I think would both slide alongside LeBron easily. I don't know if that team wins the championship, but that team makes sense, and that you can build that you want to win a championship. But the problem is though if they keep looking for perfect they may end up settling for mediocre because perfect may not come in front of him. But you have to try to do something because they just keep waiting around for the absolute utopian perfect setup. That seems like a guarantees a championship that may not be put in front of me gonna end up spinning your wheels. The entire time. You magic cannot be pressured into just settling though this summer. I see I personally feel like we got a lot of time to debate this moon for. Kicking the can down the road. That is settling. Appreciate the time. Man has always always fun to house. Great. Thanks ami. All right coming up next. The Lakers are in Utah taken on the jazz. I will be joined from Salt Lake City by Michael Thompson. And I will have him. I guess lie again about half of them up ESPN LA..
