They've been fighting but the Bucks just aren't missing. They're not getting open looks, they're nailing fought shots.

Ayton is playing 10 feet off of Giannis, giving him all the room in the world to drive. Defense is perpetually slow on switches and then slow to switch back. Nobody is putting a body on anyone. And they went back to isolation ball on offense, which ultimately cost then the game on that last possession.

Poor effort all around other than the first quarter and 5 minutes of the fourth.

The ending was this series in a nutshell. Holiday with a steal, Giannis with the game-winning dunk…

Last game we come down for the tying shot... no timeout. Turnover.

does Monty learn anything from that?

Down 1, we come down, no timeout, no play and... turnover.

Monty was awful all night tonight. Couldn’t figure out for the life of him when to stop runs, use timeouts or figure out how to slow the Bucks down.

Monty is a fantastic teacher and motivator, but as an in-game manager, he is John MacLeod, I'm afraid.
