Brew Hoop Podcast Episode 103: Giannis Dominates as Bucks Push Finals to 2-1

New, comments
NBA: Finals-Phoenix Suns at Milwaukee Bucks Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

After the Milwaukee Bucks took down the Phoenix Suns behind a monster Giannis Antetokounmpo performance, Riley and myself got together to break down everything from Sunday evening’s contest. The show kicks off with a voice memo dispatch from Kyle, who was in the arena, and then we shift to breaking down all of Giannis’s mastery over the Suns. It all starts with his punishment inside and improved free throw making, while also forcing Phoenix to shift their lineups with DeAndre Ayton in foul trouble. Other topics include:

  • Jrue Holiday’s 3rd quarter three-point barrage
  • Giannis’s defensive impact and the team’s shift back to an aggressive zone-drop strategy
  • Khris Middleton’s first half and generally fading in and out the last two games
  • Bud’s decision to go small and balancing Bobby Portis with Brook Lopez
  • Pat Connaughton’s continuity within this team and continued standout play off the bench
  • Jeff Teague calling his own number one too many times
  • How sustainable or indicative was this performance for either team moving forward

There’s tons to break down from Game Three, so hopefully this podcast can tide you over until Wednesday’s Game Four. As always, thanks for listening.
