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.
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

Eric, What did you see in those final three minutes from Milwaukee? Yeah, I mean, it was They really had a rough go of it tonight. It's It's something that this team all year has is really blown out a lot of teams so they haven't been forced into a spot where they've had to play a lot of close games and Get it on Friday night against the Celtics. I played opposed close game there. They finished it out. Make a couple plays. Chris Middleton had a couple of shots made a couple of passes and their everyone closed out. But tonight It was really just kind of a comedy of areas from, you know, about three minutes left. They had been posted up Brook Lopez the entire night Chris Middleton tosses them. What looks like a pretty simple past. Brooke Lopez has it bounces. Off his hands go out of bounds in that. From that point, it was turnovers. Sloppy play late, getting into their offensive said like it was just kind of Sloppy basketball that we really haven't seen but from the boxes season and they ended up losing this one and just doing something totally uncharacteristic of what they've done thus far this season. Except that as

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.

Interviewing Bucks' legend Marques Johnson
"And it's our Pleasure to welcome in a two time Emmy Award winning bucks. TV analysts a five time eh, NBA All Star. Did also play at Bella and won a national championship. That's Marcus Johnson here with us on the Zach Yelp show. Marcus appreciate the time How you doing? I'm doing bills. Everything is no good. All can play good benefits in basketball family from your lips to God's ears. Can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the N B. A bubble. I saw video back in February, You were wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey and you actually threw it down in your road. I'm still dunking at 64 years old. Have you been dunking at all during the pandemic? Or was that a one time thing at 64 district Cream donuts, Bad eye. You must have been nervous, right? Well, every year on my birthday, I do a dung just to see if I could still do it. I didn't plan on doing it this year. Just chill out at my son's a SIA. All over social media. They have got to do it contingent to the one in Sydney one in with that inside, And so, of course, I did a couple of warm up to feel pretty good and And we decided absent phone brought up two tackles. Omar, you know, taco fallen. Whoever jumped over him, Aaron Gordon. Whoever dumped over way last year Next year I'll be 65. That's the official retirement age. I've been retired. I'm Travis. You have to do one more 65 years old. I gotta pay the bed after that. I don't blame you. I don't. I can't even dunk right now. I can't imagine being able to dunk when you're in your sixties. Marcus Johnson here with us on the show. When we look at this MBA restart. We know that the Bucks are the best team in the league. From a record standpoint right now they're going to be the number one seed in the Eastern Conference. The's eight games inside of the bubble. What do you look for out of them where they could really ease themselves back into playing shape? The annex a great question. I was just kind of pondering that looking at the books. Play that scrimmage against neworleans the other night and You know, I just don't think that teams should put too much into the eight. Feeding games. It's a gradual buildup. You want to be planned your best basketball. Obviously when, when the playoffs start. This is such a weird. Praise the different type of experiment. Probably guys. And so, um, you know, see positives from the brother. I've seen not good things about in terms of Kind of fighting since, um, some difficulties against the product in here tonight, but, you know the season games Because boom Jose lost compete. He's gonna want these guys to come out and and just so effort show competitive competitiveness from Paris. But I'm not sure about the ones. The won and lost record is important. At this stage of the game. It's all about kind of a slow, gradual buildup. I've been exploding wants to play all secure here. When you look at the team from last year to this year. What do you see is the biggest difference as they even got better from what they were last year, which was impressive. Well, I mean, ways that it rest values that they're so what he has done that He's given Chris Middleton a breather at defense. Can't Chris I was just looking up Christian defensive record 107th overall, 22nd ranked small forward LeBron and collide As I said at the top. But Chris doesn't have to get all that energy trying to beat this Great three and the win. Clare and I could focus on his office and I was a result becomes one of seven or eight guys who was Trying to suit you both 20% from the three point line, stick to the set plus from the field and monitor it from the people that I think a 20 point today. Yes, I think that's direct benefit to Chris Middleton. Eric Bledsoe also, let's not forget him, Master. He struggle big time last couple of years in the playoffs and honestly, stuff a big farm of the playoffs. Uh, this year, he seemed to be a lot more comfortable in his basketball scared now. It is kind of getting a late start based on tested positive and them in quarantine and all that stuff. How quickly he could kind of get back into a rhythm and flow going to be a big difference. But today I think this team has gotten even better, but local tradition of Robin Has really been a great great move. But John forced our president breaking Robin Lopez, and now we've got two bent beak gets standings and leave so I think the defense has been even better than the great detective team from last season. Marcus Johnson here with us it Zaki help show on CBS Sports radio doing a little bubble breakdown on the Milwaukee butts nationally. The big question about Chris Middleton is. Can the Bucks win it all with him? Be in the Bucks. Second best player. He's a two time All Star. Give me the local feel on that. Our people still concerned locally about Middleton be in that number to peace and winning the championship this year. Right here is where you go. I could go to a barber shop in the hold of the brothers give Ah, little about depended on Chris have the huge games but In terms of inside basketball people, people that have watched Chris closely like myself. I really believe that Chris, it's all about his confident being an all Star to the second consecutive D up really? Helps his belief in himself as being one of the elite players in the league and kept in one of the shooters in the league. And you couple that with the fact that he comes back, he's getting guns for arms and get this definition I've never seen before. His body status. Probably way dog looks really good, really in great shape of the Kalpoe talked about his explosion and bounciness coming back after the four months off was really, really surprised. So he's really putting the work that during this time off to come back and make himself I've been so on. But with president mentally I think that way you get tomato last year, the average with just 14 points in the field, and he left. How Laurie, pending for a big cheque of those minutes in that six game lost to the crap. You have to be enough to love. So you've got a lot to prove, but I think Based on what I'm looking at changes of his body where he is physically brave is right. But I think he's ready to make that statement. When I look at the Eastern Conference, I really do fully expect Milwaukee. To get to the finals. They were in that one seed spot last year did not get there When you look at the Eastern Conference this year, who's the biggest challenger for the Bucks when the season resumes tomorrow night? It's really interesting. You get him some. I think three really legitimate. Even the Miami that mix also, you can't count out exposure and then the butler as your lead gap, but I think there's still a little bit godly hero of none. And guys like that. And then he began by making just a little bit young and that, Betty, but I really believe that Celtics man. I mean, people talk about the Raptors, who I respect about. Nick Norris is a great coach. Brad Stevens was great, but one through four in terms of scoring and issues and problems. You know Jason Taylor planted Kemba Walker is the number one option. That's two through four group these guys to produce and I think about taking on like the game, and that's the most since that Golden State a couple of years ago, but most just like second most 1995 in terms of looking for and then when Gordon Hayward is your fourth option, going going home. What is your fourth option? And then we talk about a container my greatest been, but then this Dylan Brown watching his footwork. Watching the lip bruised stands the finishes in traffic. He's a guy that could be a real problem for team like the book had been. The wild card would be market smart. Distant Jabba, even though Marcus Smart Sixthree export out of 16 11 Marcus Smart office of players and we know how much she just underneath their skin. And so he's a guy that has given me honest as much trouble as anybody scoring effectively and officially against it, So I said that and then the two big catch I mean the pick and roll for five hours straight that Boston life's run. Those two guys found business cancer, pounded it inside a greatjob getting into the paint and score of them that I'm not gonna puke my shot and roll that movies have private medical himself. I really believe that Celtics to me that they're not deed. I think both those four score that they have been a lot of pressure on the Milwaukee ways that do the Middleton. To defend at a high level every night in order to be a minute in a series.
Bucks, Raptors meet in Eastern Conference showdown
"Plus Raft Milwaukee. Freaky Greek play in Toronto. Tonight you went on this being a bigger game for the Butts Raptors we know severe game for the raptors rabbits have something to prove the raptors. 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. The whole feel terrible

Raptors rout Bucks to even Eastern Conference finals
"In. We are not ready to talk about a match up yet for the NBA finals because even though the warriors have moved on the defending champs. We'll have to wait for now. What is a best of three because the raptors took advantage of a warn out, Milwaukee Bucks squad. Now, you remember not even forty eight hours ago, I guess forty eight hours ago from Sunday afternoon. A game that stretched into the evening they were playing into double overtime. And this one was in Toronto and each team had its ebbs and flows. Neither team played particularly well. But that's why it was so oppressive that the raptors were able to gut out a victory and make sure that they didn't go into three nothing whole well here, they are engaged number four, and you can tell the tired legs you can see the impact on both teams. So Kawhi Leonard, he was already banged up and nursing injuries. And they've tried to protect him all season long, and make sure he was as fresh as possible for the playoffs. But that double overtime game took a toll on him. That was noticeable, same thing for the Milwaukee Bucks. The shots not dropping the minutes might have been there. But the legs were tired, and so what do you do? This is classic in basketball. When you've got tired, legs, you don't have that same explosiveness or push when you take the outside shot. So if you've ever played basketball, you know, the outside shot. Not come from the upper body. It doesn't come from your arms, if it does, you're not doing it correctly, the push for a deeper shot comes from your lower body. It comes from your legs. So when the shots come up short, they hit the front of the rim or they're off. It's generally because of tired legs. Or just you're you're completely misfiring, but when they're short. And when you don't have that push, it's, it's usually because you don't have the the legs. And so that was evident with the Milwaukee Bucks, Malcolm, Brogdon and really struggling Pat content, and he's been hit or miss. But even looking at the guys who were in the starting lineup other than Chris Middleton, the nego miratec, not able to hit a whole lot of shots, certainly not from beyond the arc. So it really impacted the bucks as well. And the classic solution to that is, don't settle for the outside shot. So became really apparent in the second quarter that the raptors were starting to go to the hoop. Now they had guys who were tired, too. But after thinking some of their outside shots Kyle Lowry had a real good game. They were able to get Norman Powell off the bench to hit four big triples. They're shooting percentage, wasn't great from the outside, but they also had guys who were going to the hoop who were slicing and dicing through the lane. And even if you. Don't make those shots. You will get more whistles. If you go to the hoop, if you're in the paint, and they did make the most of their opportunities at the free throw line twenty four of twenty seven, so they hand the box a second consecutive loss. That's only the second time we can say that all season long. It was in March, when the bucks last dropped back to back campaigns. And now here they are back into a two two tie with the raptors in the Eastern Conference finals and really impressive to see the ebbs and flows now like the coaching adjustments. But this one very much impacted by what had happened in double overtime on Sunday. And so it was up to Kyle Lowry to kind of pick up the slack for Kawhi Leonard. He had twenty five points and six assists. We stayed over that we understood this situation. They, they were supposed to do in a home floor. We do around for now. We have to go out there and continue to do what we've done, we've brought to the last two games. Put it in a game game fives and entice series. How often have we heard about the numbers from game fives entice series? I always make fun of it because people will come up with words, like critical and crucial and. The pivotal game five so yeah I think it's something like eighty percent of the time pretty close to that the, the winner in game five goes on to win a series when it's tied at two games apiece. So it's overwhelmingly in favor. And so let's see here I found the exact number I did it eighty two point eight percent of the time game five in a best of seven series that's tied the winner of game five but it's still a best three now which makes the warriors, really happy because they've got a lot of guys who are banged up in either the raptors or the bucks, pose a challenge for them, because they'll have an extremely accomplished power, excuse me, small forward in Janas forgot there aren't really any powerful words much left in the NBA. They'll either have to face Janas, or they'll have to face collide Leonard, and both those guys are loads. And so to have. Kevin durant. Back to have. Andrea Gonzala back to have a fresh Draymond green who will likely draw the defensive assignment a good portion of the time. That's, that's something that they, they couldn't buy right now. They need that more than anything. It's priceless to them. So they're rooting for a game sevens. Of course, which him I, I love game sevens. We just we don't want these guys limited to the finish line. I guess that is what playoffs turn out to be a lot of the time, a war of attrition survive and advance, the Saint Louis blues have done it. The Bruins have done it. They get that time off the warriors to we got one more spot in our hoops, and hockey
"chris middleton" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"So he's he lives up to, you know, he, he takes pride in for like, if you have a bad game you expect him to come out and he's produce tonight. I think the only way he couldn't be disappointed because he didn't watch the tape. Hey it'd be disappointed game three. He was miserable. And I really don't he may have okay game. But I don't expect him to be phenomenal in this game. Toronto has a defensive scheme led by Leonard on him. But they put a wall around for Janas that causes him to turn the ball over limits. Him in what he can do and they got to the end of that game before he filed out. And he really wasn't even an option for them authencity. He was not an option. It was Chris Middleton. It was George hill. It was brogden. It was anybody. But Jaanus and at some point I was like in the Janas help some of the defensive and he's certainly freak on the boards. But I was on the offense. They to get married to out here. They and so I think they're going to frustrate him again tonight. And I but I think Toronto win the game. Because even though the game was close of Toronto had a few players didn't play well. So a while Linda was eleven for twenty five Danny green struggle of Larry file dot he didn't have his best performance. And of obviously van fleeing fully he got. He got. Well he's been terrible play. You gotta give something he gotta give Toronto of the, but I think Toronto comes out and get this winter night, and just just a just piggyback on what you said, I think they do have escape for John this. But Boston also had a game and he he, he had to go back and watch film because he's still got to where he needs to scream, but no Kawai at the head of I agree. Yeah. But it takes. You beat me in a close contest. And I'm Yoenis and I have off night. I tied my career high in turn. Over's like, and we still in the ball game like for him to soak in that moment. I think I would have been had a greater reaction to that versus the guy was just like I'm Jaanus, taking from Kevin Durant. I'm Kevin Durant. And I liked this response to a guy who knows how close they really were and he's still had a positive plus minus compared to Middleton. And some of the other guys, one of these wanna point out is game one Toronto still have the confidence to feel that they could win that game. You know, and being I was in Chicago at the pre-draft the Toronto Raptors filled it, they had that game in hand, if you will, and they have the competence to do it. Many people aren't talking about it. This is a must gain from playoff perspective. If you're looking at the series for the Milwaukee Bucks, because if you get back to, to, to, to, to going back to Milwaukee, Toronto feels that they have a chance. They they really won that game. They did everything but win that game in game one. So if I'm Milwaukee right now, I'm putting a lot of emphasis on this game trying to get up three. One going back knowing that, I can cause out the series. All right before we go. I want to explain why my favorite athlete. Magic Johnson just said a very dangerous precedent for young people. He quit his job as president of the Los Angeles Lakers and offered a week justification. It was no fun, working with rob linka..

"chris middleton" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"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,.
"chris middleton" Discussed on Afternoons with Marcellus & Kelvin
"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..
"chris middleton" Discussed on The Starters
"Dennis wasn't really himself. But they just sort of found their way into the second quarter. Was it Jaanus opening up the floor with his drives for history porn shooters that happened? I or the three point shooters opening up the lanes free us this sort of happened simultaneously. But I, but I think yeah, just aggressiveness. His son has made those shots open for Chris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe. And those guys because it starts with him. And he was just being smarter about it. I mean, he got swiped in the first quarter by Jason Tatum. When he went to the left side of the right handed duct that we had the shimmy. Yeah, we got he's hitting threes out there. He was feeling good in the second half. But it is ones. And now Boston finally is facing some adversity in this playoffs as well. So we'll they bounced back probably with. Yeah. In game one in the restricted area. Yana shot four. Fifteen that was just weird. Now, someone that was Horford someone's that all the defenders they were throwing at them. But also missed some that you generally hits and game two less, but a whole bunch of free throws. You got eighteen free throws in this game. That is a lot in a playoff game. Does he attack the attack attack? If he wasn't setting up his guys outside. Yeah. A nice bounce back performance. There's no stopper. There's just slower from game to game. That's what you were saying that you can plug in. But sometimes you pull it out in the water. Just runs down next one. That's the most confused. Irving leaves the Celtics postseason scoring emphasis, but last night has third. I was cloudy erring scored just nine points on four eighteenth shooting. The passing wasn't much better forces the three turnovers on a night when many of his passes miss the Mark guys tour false the Celtics need playoff Kyrie to win. I think that's false. Actually when you look at the regular season. I know this is a different beast in the postseason the regular season kyri stats. We're pretty similar in wins and losses. He shot the ball better in wins. But I think you could look at any superstar, and they're generally gonna shoot better in the wins. But across the board points rebounds this pretty similar, but what was weird is game one. I was sitting here talking about like, wow. That may have been Kyrie's best game of the season. In terms of just dominating the flow of the game, the temple and all that setting up guys still paying playing a little hero ball when needed but a game to this may have been his worst game of season one of his worst games of his playoff career. So that was strange. I think a big credit goes to the bucks defense makings. Switching a lot of their defense in game two here. Celtics out over the funk. Good. No. He's not the kyri stopper, but a very very bad game and some bad shots, even in kyri can hit some crazy shots, but not the greatest looks. There's just sort of a little perplexing. I do like that. He's owning it though. After the game. He was like look this is on me. My responsibility all bounce back. I was made for this. Let's go, you know, this is a part of the quote, you know, he loves it. So I like that is what I signed up for. So I'm not too worried about him going back to Boston. Yeah. Well, I think I do need him though to be obviously much better than he was off. Because in that guy one. He took it on his shoulders to say, I'm going to get these team off. Good stott. I'm gonna get back down and get some shots got off to a good start to. Well, they go to the heating get off to a great start though. And then it's funny. How contagious it is bad shooting because last night in game one a lot of the Celtics hitting shots game to no one could hit a shot title hasn't had good series scifi they need ofensive production..
"chris middleton" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"He's eighty to eighty five like, good luck. Good luck. Chris Middleton trying to guard this through I wasn't body in before the year after watching him in in high school now body this guy is incredible not just because of his physical abilities either done. Yeah. His I q how hardy plays both like that's the thing. He plays like he's three star or two star recruit. He does not play like somebody who his head there s kissed for years and years and years now. Yeah. No. It's it's really really amazing. Okay. So they play Virginia Tech. Most people have buzz Williams on the next plane to take the job the second they lose. In the meantime, they've actually beaten to Greenwich Zainuddin play. But neither the Justin Robinson the point guard for Virginia Tech does dukes run come to an end tonight. No, I think they roll. I do I think they role in this one because you don't really have anybody blacks, your can protect the rim to some extent. But RJ Barrett is going to salivate at the fact that he doesn't have to look in the lane in CA 7-foot-5, dude waiting on him Zayn Williamson same thing. It was a -ffective sign, but not to the same level. He's not it wasn't able to don't like he could and attack. RJ Barrett was the one who was most affected by taco fall. And I think now again. Yeah. Just Robinson helps but Justin Robinson is not going to be in the lane waiting for Jay, baron, Zaim links and those guys are going to take it to them. They're going to score fifty five points between the two they're going to go to the line over and over and over, and I would be shocked if this is a single digit game, and the I'm gonna take the other side. I think Duke wins Virginia Tech keeps exceptionally close. Okay. What about Kentucky? PJ Washington was playing like the best player in the SEC won best players. America. And then, you know, first week in the NCA Termine he's in a cast. So doesn't play I two I two games. And then all of a sudden two days ago, he Instagram's out of live video of him walking. So now send there's a chance to play. Will we see PJ Washington tonight? And and we'll we see him Sunday. Maybe more importantly. Yeah. We don't know what we know is John Calipari said that he has been cleared by the doctors, and there's no risk of further damage to the sprain foot. I say how the hell can you put him out there three days after he gets out of a cast that he's been in for a week against athletic Houston team that is going to go right at him. Let's face it. If PJ Washington's out there, they're going to try try to explode him in every way possible, especially getting them up and down the court. And this is a kid who could be a lottery picked up. I just don't know how you put them out there. I know he wants to get out. There is a tough kid love him as a player love is a kid. But again, if you John cale Perry, and you've been all about your players for long long time. I think you protect your player of year. Yeah. I look I think it's different because he's a he's a future NBA NBA draft pick. But I do think that playing will only help us stock if he plays, but how healthy will be. I would guess if it was me and he could play. I couple minutes tonight. So that he does. So that we see how it reacts with the day off you see if you can play Sunday because Sunday potentially North Carolina that's game of the tournament game of the tournament today. In terms of the overall town both coaches chamber programs. You got he's got have played in a basketball game before that game in order in order to be right? I want to ask you also, Jeff, you you cover the NBA, you know, the Celtics. Well, is it kyri? Is it the players, and the coaches these not really being all the players that vibe with the coaches is it Gordon Hayward and then playing him too, many minutes and that being awkward for the rotation. Why aren't the Celtics better and more cohesive or the best term is more connected. This point in the season. Well, number one..

"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.

"The last shot thirty two seconds left the game winner Chris Middleton hits it it's not just give it to Jaanus and let him go to work with Boston. We know Kyrie's getting with Lakers. We know LeBron's getting it with Toronto, we know Kawais get like every other team goes hero ball down the stretch. I liked Milwaukee draws up a set less make a play and the ball will find the man, and he hit it. So I look I'm totally with you on. I am audience. People writing off Boston are ridiculous ridiculous. I'm just not ready to say, they're a lot. Okay. Here's the other thing is that we're just so we just like the baby dinosaurs. And Jaanus is a great kid. And as a lot of LeBron left.

No, I'm saying the all the teams in the league. We are. We are now. So in love with the new shiny teams Toronto, Milwaukee Philadelphia. Lebron laker.

"To try to upgrade the talent but even if it brought you back a sort of a fringe all star type of guy to help lebron james say chris middleton let's say the bucks were willing to trade a chris middleton to the cavs for that number eight overall pick sure that gives lebron another weapon but it's not even close to enough to beat golden state it might not be enough to get by healthy celtics team so lebron knows that ultimately cleveland does not have what it takes to put additional talent around him and for him to get the cavs that to the finals next year he's going to have to have a repeat of what could be his most dominant season ever in year fifteen it's impossible to ask that of him at some point here for lebron james body for his own sanity for his nba longevity he needs to join a team that's going to give him some legitimate help he needs to join a team that's going to put some real talent around him so when he's out there and looking around the landscape of the nba there's a reason why the celtics are mentioned in the conversation because you plug him in here and not only the celtics the instant favourite to win the championship no longer are they just in the championship conversation they are the favorites to win the nba championship assuming you only have to give up one of your all stars to get him and there's only one way to do this so the celtics would be decimated glenn ordway was right when he tweeted what he tweeted yesterday we call them out for it last night he was right when you think about trying to sign lebron james of the free agent if the celtics or hell bent adamant on adding lebron strictly as a free agent it's a near impossible.

"Bari parker really played hard on defense which was encouraged incredible i saw stop somebody switches like oh my god i've ever saw it before i it was beautiful seeing tony snell actually finally hit two shots in the series that's what milwaukee needs especially on the road in a game seven when they don't have that crazy loud crowd behind them which was unbelievable in game six they're going to need other guys step up you alluded lou to it earlier zach who who do you think that guy might be on either side of for boston or milwaukee that could elevate their play to give him the series victory i think i'm interested in terriers year for boston who in game one almost one at the end if chris middleton had it made that thirty footer to send it to overtime last night regime took twelve three pointers he made four which is a decent percentage but especially at home i think all of boston's young players have played better in boston so far this series and if horford find some on open passes or jason tatum or jalen brown drives and kicks i think rosiere could be a difference maker for boston from a walkie either attain has definitely shortened so at that limits the potential pool period and i almost think milwaukee is in more trouble here because i don't know who that guy is besides the honest they haven't really had people outside their core step up yet and i don't know if they'll be able to tap into that vein in game seven on the road and less janas has his special like lebron game six in boston game where he just drops forty plus nearly fifty points which he certainly capable of i i do think boston will double him though like they did in certain instances in game six and that will force other guys to have to step up their game this shows like to me like jabari parker is do or die game milwaukee i'm curious what you think will happen in this offseason kevin.

"At two games apiece you don't have to get quite that performance that you got friday night but we need to see some of the same traits obviously the defense is big because offense has been a problem for the bucks in this series there was a point in game two where there shooting over sixty percent until losing by ten the offense has been fine chris middleton and janas have been outstanding so far in these first two games three games in the case of middleton and janas case nineteen points friday night missed the final eleven minutes of the fourth quarter in foul trouble but he didn't need so offense hasn't been the issue it's the defense and we saw some minor tweaks with the lineup on friday night with no john hinton tyler zeller was inserted into the starting five we saw another change with malcolm brogdon going in there i would anticipate we'll probably see the same this afternoon but it's clear don't turn the ball over and limit the celtics second chance points rebounding that's been an issue for this team all season long as have three point shooting at this point you are who you are pseudo expect the bucks to come out and outworked the celtics on the glass here might be out of the realm of possibility but if you can limit the work that they do the damage that they do interning those offensive rebounds in the second chance points that's a big part of the battle here because that's the area that really killed the bucks in game one game two as well but game one twenty two four second chance points in favor of the boston celtics four one four seven nine nine one six twenty that's.
