The Brew Hoop Podcast Episode 99: Bucks Upended by Harden-less Nets

The Bucks can’t take advantage of Brooklyn’s early injury

NBA: Playoffs-Milwaukee Bucks at Brooklyn Nets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time this postseason, the Brew Hoop podcast won’t be filled with the joyous laughter of Milwaukee Bucks fans enjoying victory, but instead a slightly more somber discussion of what went wrong for Bud’s team in the first game. To take it all in, I was joined by Andrew Goodman and Van Fayaz, with Riley and Kyle both out for the week. We run through all the key stats from Game One, and look ahead to what we’d like to see heading forward in the series. Topics include:

  • Impact of Harden’s injury on the series
  • Giannis guarding Kyrie and more defensive matchup intrigue
  • Decision to move PJ Tucker into the starting lineup
  • Bud’s rotations and the insertion of Jeff Teague
  • Milwaukee losing the thread partway through the second quarter
  • How the Bucks can manufacture better looks against Brooklyn’s defense
  • Comparing each team’s role player performances

Lots to discuss from Game One, and if you’re looking to get prepped before Game Two tonight then look no further. As always, thanks for listening.
