Retweeted by Bill SimmonsCongrats Toronto!!!Kawhi’s Corner - unbelievable. Cannot get over that one.

Freak isn’t a good enough shot maker to save this by himself.Milwaukee’s halfcourt offense for about an hour fans must feel the same way about Ibaka’s crazy Game 7 last round that I feel about Jeff Green’s last 2 ECF games in 2018.Signs of life from Bledsoe!

Take him out top of the 2Q/4Q that’s it. I… fact that Bledsoe is +5 right now tells you how stupid plus/minus is. Bud just benched him. He can only count on 7 guys in this game.Just gonna tweet on this thread. Bledsoe is unplayable in my opinion. His defense isn’t worth how bad his offense is.Perfect 1Q for Milwaukee — took the crowd out, Middleton made 2 threes, Brogdon/Hill/Ilyasova went 7-8, no non-Kawh…’s 3 missed threes definitely shook the crowd. I like Connaughton in this game. He won’t be scared. He’s my wildcard guy tonight.Not sure who looks more nervous — Bledsoe or Giannis. Slight edge to Giannis so far. Tough look so far.I’m genuinely excited for this game. Would say.... 55% chance Toronto blowout. 15% chance Toronto wins 20% chance…
