    So, the Griz know how to play defense. Even with a few players out, they were able to grind out a close game for almost 3 quarters, after a back to back.

    They fouled, fouled again and fouled some more. Finally, the Dubs realized the deal. Play defense and get to the foul line.

    One thing I noticed is how much more they hand checked, and got right up in ball handlers faces giving them no room at all. They were grabbing people coming off screens etc...Some of what I saw should be called as fouls under the new rules. I guess they were going by the old school method of if you are constantly fouling, the refs cannot call them all.

    Either way, the more games like this our young guys play this season, the more they’ll be ready come playoff time for the change in game calling by the refs.

    I just think the Warriors did the typical.. turn it up in the 3rd or 4th quarter. They got a lot of good looks throughout. The Grizzlies were just outmanned. I was sitting 10 rows behind the Grizz bench, and i could see Omri Casspi's facial expression when the Warriors took control.. he was looking at a fan and kinda shrugged and smiled.. like.. that's what they do!.

    I was as well, but did not expect this blowout. The Bucks are really good and fun to watch!

    The Bucks are great. It's amazing how much they've improved defensively, particularly when you realize their two big free agent signings have been Ilyasova and Brook Lopez, not exactly defensive juggernauts.

    But they've improved a lot defensively from last year's team, particularly on their perimeter defense. That's what adding a top coach like Budenholzer does to an already good team. Last year's Bucks were a disaster in terms of coaching, but Budenholzer has them playing like a true east contender.

    A pity we weren't at full strength. It'd have been a real good game. Hope Steph's alright and doesn't miss much time.

    great points TMC. Steph pulled his left groin muscle, and I fear he will miss 2-4 weeks...hope I am wrong

    Yea, that was just one of those games. We've seen it happen, everything going for the Bucks, Warriors out of Rhythm. Not a good showing, but they were due one of those.

    Milwaukee destroyed the Warriors tonight. Not much went right and Curry got hurt. Not sure how serious it is, but you could see something happened. It's like he got a flat tire and puttered over to the side of the highway. He wasn't the only one. KD was off too. Like he's suffering from sleep apnea or something. Moving real slow and tossing turnovers galore. Meanwhile, the Bucks (especially their bench) had that "look what we just done" pie eating smile on their faces, including new head coach Mike Budenholzer. Good for them. They played well when it counted and even sat Giannis the entire 4th quarter. Interesting, Kerr gave up in the 3rd. Maybe he was disgusted and didn't even want to try to mount a comeback. I'm very impressed with Milwaukee's Brogdon. Silky smooth who's a little spark plug on the hard wood and a good couterpunch to Bledsoe and Giannis. Warriors seemed a little uninterested tonight which is a shame because this was a good team to see where they were at early in the season. Now we know. A little banged up, a little tired, and a little too full on their early success. Nonetheless, It's just one game. One lousy game. Duly noted is the fact that they have lost to "good teams" however--Denver and now Milwaukee. Onward gents. Learn how to play WITHOUT Draymond...

    Denver is also great fun. Very few people (not among those that really know about the NBA, mind you) considered them a contender, but they're deep, well coached and have plenty of weapons. Obviously, they're not a contender to win the west, but they should make the playoffs comfortably and maybe even reach the second round, pending the matchup.

    Not embarrassing at all to lose to those two, particularly now. Season is still young and there's not a sense of urgency. This team has several young pieces (Jones has earned playing time, Cousins will play a lot once he's back, McKinnie and Jerebko have been playing well and often) and the regular season should be an exercise of developing chemistry in the group (and if we end up with home court advantage for the whole playoffs, all the better, of course).
