He did not look that dominant in the 3 qtr, some good D but would have liked to see him body them more and just make it his court
What Giannis needs to do better is kicking it out. A lot of times he gets locked up trying to push through 4 players.

Regardless if we are missing our shots tonight, you still have to kick it out. Reset and maybe even try again.

Giannis got away with a massive push off then bricked both free throws. Ingram gets away with push offs too. Yet they'll call the slightest ones on random average players.

GG Lakers. Good solid close game. Refs were sh*t both ways.

Cannot overstate how much we missed George Hill though. fu** Dragic.

Agree with that, he's doing better this quarter but team shooting no good. Davis taken over. I'm very sad I wanted the bucks to win so bad

Just a regular game at the end of the day, guys like LeBron, AD & Giannis wouldn't take into account much from this. Both teams have to advance past 3 others teams in the playoffs to even see eachother.

Honestly I'm kind of happy with this result. Rough night but stuck it out and didn't get blown out when we could have easily rolled over. Kept it close, made LeBron & AD earn it and away from home.

Took a big lesson from the Heat loss to not overreact to a regular season game so much. Winning so much recently has conditioned me to think the Bucks are invincible but honestly the past 2 weeks they've been quite poor.

Broadcast kept talking about the Lakers not shooting well but we shot just as poorly, minus the fact the Lakers were getting to the line and we weren't. Away from home and against LeBron and AD, the scoreline actually isn't that bad against such a great team.

Middleton was straight garbage, in fact he has had a bad week. In saying that, the season as a whole he has been excellent and I trust that he'll get back into form leading into the playoffs. If he plays tonight like an All-Star, it goes down to the wire instead of a 10 point loss. Bledsoe hasn't had a great season but we've been lucky that George Hill is Benjamin Button and gets better with age. Sorely missed tonight, cannot be overstated as I posted earlier. He is crucial for us.

Referee's were terrible. Ticky tacky fouls on the Lakers in the 1st were shockingly bad and then the fix up calls in the 2nd against the Bucks. The 3rd quarter though was certainly favouring the Lakers. 23 FT's to 7 at one point in the 3rd. Evened up again in the 4th, favouring the Bucks. You just cannot have this sort of disparity, especially in a matchup that is likely to be the NBA finals matchup.

AD played the perfect Robin to LeBron's Batman tonight. Full credit to those two, didn't think much of the rest of the Lakers lineup though. My concern with playing the Lakers in the finals would be the fact that LeBron and AD will play 44+ minutes each and that's terrifying.

Onto the next one, Giannis still the MVP and we still the best record. Go Bucks.

We won't drop out of 1st in the East but I'm seriously concerned we might lose the best record to the Lakers by the end of the season. Seriously tough schedule to close the season out.

I just can't see us beating the Lakers without home court advantage if it comes down to that matchup in the finals.

Really solid win tonight, one of our best of the season against the top team and the MVP of the league. Not like Giannis didn't perform either, he was great, as was DiVincenzo

Hopefully the AD/LeBron duo is just as unstoppable in the playoffs

DangerSloane has been keeping a close eye on George Hill this season. He’d agree with you I’m sure
