Few Milwaukee Bucks notes before Tip Off
They take the 3rd most shots at the rim and the 2nd most threes
They allow the fewest shots at the rim and they allow the most Corner 3s and the most overall 3s.
They will take away rim and dare you to make shots

For all the talk about Giannis in transition the Bucks are the best half court offense in the NBA. They have the 4th best shot quality (Jazz have best)
They are 28th in frequency of picks, 29th in frequency of handoffs and 26th passes.
They run limited action penetrate and dish

There is a chance the Jazz are getting Giannis Antetokounmpo at the wrong time.
He is 7 of his last 21 (33%) from three and was 7 of previous 58 (12%)
He has hit 9 of his 20 (45%) on mid range he was previous 16 of 47 (34%)
He had 43 and 18 v. Toronto

Bucks 12 Jazz 11 with 7:23 left in the 1st quarter
Ricky Rubio relented on defense and then immediately called to the bench for an injury. He screamed in frustration and then bang his hand on a table as he left the floor and immediately went to the locker-room

Jazz point guard situation
Rubio — injured
Exum — injured
Neto – available
Allen — injured
Mitrou-Long- active and available

Rubio’s hamstring injury in the playoffs was left hamstring this is right hamstring

Jazz 48 Bucks 45 with 7:03 left in the 2nd quarter
Jazz are playing a one man zone with whomever is guarding Giannis and leaving Giannis open until he moves into the paint. Giannis is 4 of 10 and 0 for 5 outside restricted area.
Both offenses having a great start

Jazz 62 Bucks 58 at the half
Donovan Mitchell with 15 and Giannis Antetokounmpo with 13
Giannis is 0 for 6 outside the restricted area
Jazz 8 of 17 from three Bucks 6 of 13
Off Rtg: 125 Def Rtg: 117

Jazz 74 Bucks 67 with 8:28 left in the 3rd quarter
Jazz moving the ball terrifically
Jazz took a brief 11 point lead
Jazz defense has been great on Giannis and he still has 17 on 7 of 15 WOW

Jazz 92 Bucks 92 with 8:50 left in the 4th quarter
Great game tonight – 23 lead changes, 10 ties
Donovan has not checked out in the 2nd half without Exum and Rubio
Favors 12 pts 7 rebs and Brogdon 18 pts are the unsung heroes tonight

Bucks 107 Jazz 99 with 3:30 left
Bucks pulling away late after close game all night
Thon Maker and Malcolm Brogdon make huge plays
Giannis plan has been strong he is 12 of 28 and has no field goals outside 5 feet.
Jazz 4 of 19 in 2nd half from 3
Lost ball movement for a while

Bucks 114 Jazz 102 Final Score
Great game. Super effort. Bucks wear the Jazz down in the 4th quarter
