Despite the Kings being a pretty big dog in this one, I will be totally unsurprised to see them win it.

The previous narrative for a lot of folks was “the Kings don’t need Fox to play at an elite level because the team was playing good.” That’s bullshit. If he’s an elite max player his style of play shouldn’t change so dramatically.

My theory is he needs the ball in his hand all the time to make things happen. Once you play him off the ball and have others bringing the ball up he loses his effectiveness.

Every time they get some momentum and get it to a one possession game, the Bucks answer back. They’re battling out there but they aren’t gonna win against any elite team if they aren’t getting the best version of Fox. The one out there right now clearly isn’t that, and it’s clear he’s hurting with how much he’s hobbling around

Not gonna win shit scoring 8 points in the last six minutes of the game. Too much Holiday in the first half and too much Giannis in the second. Add in Lopez affecting the paint and it’s a loss. We kept hanging out in that 3-11 points behind range then Milwaukee’s experience finished it off. We’ve beaten CLE this season. Need to do it again. I wouldn’t have minded a 3-5 point loss, but that ending left a bad taste.

The Bucks PBP lady (who I can’t remember her name for whatever reason) made a comment : “That looked like the Iowa Keegan Murray.”

She wasn’t wrong. Keegan’s dunk in the lane is easily my favorite thing I saw of him all night. I’ll take that as a silver lining for a game I never had much optimism the Kings had a chance in. Especially when Monk and Fox combine 2 for 13 from 3 pt land.
