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

EMPTYING THE NOGGIN – Jazz dominate Nets from early run to the finish

David Locke

SUMMARY:  The Jazz go a 27 to 2 run from the first quarter to the second and blow out the Brooklyn Nets on their way to a 114-98 win.

  • Rudy Gobert was a dominating defensive force tonight that ruined the rhythm of both D’Angleo Russell and Caris LeVert. Gobert’s length has such an impact on the opponents shot selection that players get uncomfortable because they are not talking their normal looks.  The Jazz defense has held 7 of the last 10 opponents to under a point a possession

 

  • This game was interesting because both the Nets and Jazz play an analytics heavy game. The Jazz take the  6th most amount of shots at the rim and the 6th most amount of threes for the 4th most amount of “smart” shots at 76%   The Nets take the 12th most amount of shots at the rim and the 4th most amount of 3s for the 5th most amount of smart shots at 75%.   Now that is fine expect that both teams defensively take the same approach and deny these shots.  The Jazz rank 1st at 62.5% and the Nets rank 2nd at 64% at allowing fewest amount of smart shots.   So what happens?

 

  • The defenses won out. The Jazz took 29% of their shots as mid range shots compared the their usual 24% and the Nets shot an unreal 40% of their shots as mid range shots compared to their 25%.   Moreover, neither team shot them very well.  The Jazz were 8 of 29 and the Nets were 9 of 39.  At one point in the game the Nets were 4 of 22 on paint non restricted area shots.

 

  • D’Angle Russell had a miserable night. He finished 2 of 11 on mid range shots.

 

  • Derrick Favors had a sequence of the game when he was so much bigger and stronger than any of the Nets they couldn’t get a rebound. The Nets were trying to play zone and had to bail out of the zone because Favors was too much of a force on the boards

 

  • The Jazz bigs killed the Nets. Rudy Gobert had 23 points and 17 rebounds as well as 3 blocks and Derrick Favors had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks.

 

  • The Jazz were able to get off 13 corner 3 attempts which is a lot and a ton when you consider who they were playing. The Jazz are averaging well over 10 corner 3 attempts for the last 10 games.

 

  • Donovan notched another 20 point game. He has had 20 in 28 of his last 30 games

 

  • 13 three pointers for the Jazz. 12 seems to be the magic number for wins

 

  • Solid win now onto the East for a 4 game trip of huge importance.
