Bucks Blowing Game 5 Became An Afterthought With Wednesday’s NBA Craziness
Milwaukee Bucks blew Game 5. Some people might point out that Kevin Durant went off and that’s the reason why the Milwaukee Bucks didn’t win the game more than anything else. Others will note that Bucks could have done more offensively (More to come in a post later on this). Regardless, it was a big topic for podcasts and shows like Get Up, First Take, and Undisputed. Then the NBA seemed to do a complete turn on its axis flipping everything upside down. Things were so crazy in the last 24 hours, you would think this is some Bravo reality television show. Here are all the things that happened and why this is good for the Bucks moving forward.
- Kawhi Leonard is out for the season likely with an ACL injury – 8:30a
- Chris Paul has COVID despite being vaccinated – 9:00a
- Multiple coaches get the axe (Scott Brooks, Stan Van Gundy) – Late morning
- Dallas fires their long-time general manager Donnie Nelson – Early afternoon
- LeBron James comes out against the league’s tight schedule and blames them for the increased injuries. We’re going to chat about this on the podcast today – 2:00p
- Philadelphia 76ers blow a 25 point lead in the final 15 minutes of Game 5 against Atlanta – 9:00p
- Utah, one of the best home teams in all of basketball this season, loses at home to a Kawhi-less Clippers team as Paul George has another massive game – 12:30a
Look at that shit! So many things happened in the mere 24 hours since Milwaukee lost to the Brooklyn Nets. Personally, this is great for the Bucks. There will be so little talk about Milwaukee and Brooklyn tonight because there are so many other things to cover. This is a do-or-die game for Milwaukee, but they might have the pressure eased off them a little nationally with all the other stuff going on in the league.
