Matthews has taken over on Paul George for Grayson Allen. – 10:32 PM Clippers used 6-0 run to establish early 10-4 start. Expect a heavy midrange approach from LAC. They’re already 2/6 from there. Bucks rank 29th in midrange* FGs allowed this season *as RoCo could tell you, those shots Bucks allowed last year were 3s. – 10:30 PM Bucks are having a “Clippers’ first quarter in Chicago two days ago” kind of shooting start. Giannis is 1-7, Bucks 2-10. – 10:29 PM The Bucks are 2-of-10 thus far from the field, which includes a 1-of-7 start from Giannis Antetokounmpo, and they are down, 10-4, with 6:39 left in the first quarter. – 10:29 PM Bucks game ops are interesting, because sometimes it sounds like you’re at a Clippers game and sometimes it sounds like you’re at a Jazz game… – 10:25 PM Giannis tries to bulldoze to the rim and Kawhi strips the ball on his way up for a steal.
– 2:52 AM PG mentioned tonight that Clippers usually beat elite defenders by screening. Small-small pick-and-roll, not like Zu screening. – 2:45 AM Only players in NBA history to score more points than Giannis scored tonight (54) vs Clippers: – Shaquille O’Neal (61 on birthday in March 2000) – David Robinson (71 on final day of 1994 season to secure scoring title) – 2:29 AM Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif Zubac on guarding Giannis’ drives: “He’s coming at you downhill full speed, he’s a strong dude and you can’t move laterally, I take a step right, foul. I take a step left, foul. I don’t even know what’s a foul anymore.
It’s a 7-0 Clippers run and 63-49 Clippers lead. Morris leads Clippers scorers with 12 points on 5/8 FGs, 2/4 3s. Also a +25 with Kawhi so far. – 11:38 PM The Clippers scored the first seven points of the second half and they lead, 63-49, with 10:35 left in the third quarter. That is not an ideal start – 11:37 PM Clippers also allowed only 2 fast break points in first half. Giannis is trucking Clippers in paint, but Clippers should be fine as long as they keep possession battle even and if Norm gets some help from PG/Kawhi (19 points on 7/18 FGs).

– 11:30 PM Underrated factor in first half: Clippers outscored Bucks 9-4 on second chances. Also, the +/- in this game is crazy.
