Milwaukee Bucks, Orlando Magic, NBA Playoffs, Eastern Conference, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Nikola Vucevic 1 Highlights August 19 NBA Playoffs Round 1
Chris middleton is gets a game. The only player in the nba to be in the top five in both points and rebounds. His first look is a three and it didn’t look bad down the triple if you’re the magic. I tell you what i’d like to see more of that, if you want to have a chance in this game, great and really starting to understand the nba game and now in his third season, the outside game is working. Muchovich averaged 20 game last year was only 11 of the playoffs, though against toronto. Nick on the run out and the mid range game will give and go off the pick. It’Ll be ennis. He’S got the triple, come in and do xyz. You know if we shoot the three well, we don’t turn it over. We can limit them in transition, we’re going to have a chance to be successful and they were a clean team for the most part during the regular season. Let’S had a couple of the spin and the hammer – oh my goodness. Yes, one point lead in there and take that, and there was an example of the rotation coming a little late there from the weak side, good extra pass, the drive kick and both teams shooting lights out for the most part, orlando right now, five of six make It six of seven creates another takeaway and all those turnovers that’s, four out of the last five possessions nick puchovich.
He is fuck’s executive, who said, listen just because you have a champion on your roster doesn’t mean that that person is the right fit for your roster. He loves the group of people around yana santa the other way and that’s again. You have to find things like that, if you’re the magic that you’re not going to out talent, this bucks team you’ve got to win the anticipation to disrupt that buck’s offense got the ball out of middleton’s hands. Marvin williams gets the triple he’s, been a corner three to nothing run right now for milwaukee divacenzo, sharing it with george hill and it pays off is because of the impact of giannis, but you’ve seen it with this second unit. They do a great job of allowing their offense to create offense, not a lot of the ability to knock them down consistently poor. The five starters still out there like markel full to the mid range game and you’re right. The confidence growing for this young man he’s right at 30 minutes, so they play a lot of guys for extended minutes. They got a lot of confidence in this group and they’re still able to exit picked up and going the other way as wesley a wounded good wing for them very athletic young man. He got contact and he’s going to the line. Looking for the three point play on buchevich another board, so nick’s already got seven and three to start the game with a couple of dimes and passes a perfect one, the lead by payne it’s, almost like they’re playing a zone.
Look at the three round: good positioning. George hill, he found him and on the shot, clock final minute of a real good start for orlando terrence ross into the the veteran the 32 year old. Dj augustine had a good drive and kick for nick he’s got it again. We have to win the rebounding game, markelle fultz’s first ever start in the playoffs. Is this his best basketball he’s ever played he’s playing uh he’s gotten better all year, so before play stoppage was the best level of his group. They have come out here on a mission. It’Ll be bledsoe had a breakdown out front, they were 24th in the league in scoring before the restart, and you saw the the significant improvement chris middleton tried to defend it away and now, in the second year of a big deal with the milwaukee box so undo. Taking advantage of kyle korver with the crossover execution, they are creating great looks in the half court against the number one defense in the nba ignore they’re able to knock down orlando still. Shooting 55 percent fournier hit half his threes against them this past year, ns from and we’re going to be back here. We’Ll have him again on monday inside it goes to wesley matthew, but other guys have stepped up and, more importantly, their defense has really stepped up. Muchovich already in double figures, take him to 14 for what he’s been doing out there, setting picks and legit screens.
Now the long deuce got it again, seven of eight for that replay from last year, an 11 2 run now in a shocking 18 point game, making 16. he’s going to get his game at this point of his career on the run boy, they walled off giannis Didn’T they, but he made the right, read there, but that’s two straight turnovers too. So after doing such a good job early on they’re going to get a blob, you got here early in this game quiet since he came back onto the floor. Gary clark spacing gets another triple the surprise package had their struggles here. The last few minutes offensively giannis, will get there and follow his own that’s. Pablo stats point game inside of two to play. He is such a force and the guy who drafted him in the building, of course, markelle fultz filled. The gm of orlando now had been in milwaukee and drafted the man with the ball. Giannis is dead as he gets. The three now as matthews is free on the ark fournier will track it down, trying to find terence ross and a good spin on the baseline, the reverse down, not for the guys that fear. The deer it’ll be a great day. Question, though, for the magic can they get fournier going? Who has struggled in the first round, as did last season and obviously in that first half you need to be the aggressor here in the second half wasn’t pleased how the magic took it to him in the first half and then the other part of it here.
Locker room, yep, left vujovic the hot hand of the first half and it’s a bank, and he did not call glass did 12 start three or four from beyond the arc almost taken away. It is taken away eric bledsoe, read it and smallest guy on the floor. To get their rhythm now dedecombo on the spin and got what he wanted all of a sudden for 10 points. 20 a game in the four games against milwaukee this year has yet to score and out of the timeout middleton for the orlando magic. Gary clark’s got a dozen dennis, has nine above their season averages bledsoe going to the line it beat bolts out front and battle. Eight yeah and i’ll tell you look from the magic kind of a roll reversal. If you will kept alive good work by fultz, buchevich gets it boltz kept it alive, great call there partner, just being active staying engaged, and how can you lose the data combo? They did nba history just about four minutes into the third eleventh over the smaller, but so and he gets the best kept a lie by middleton 50 50 it’s gary clark with markelle, fultz and blocked away by lopez. But the foul on brook lopez – and that was these – came out and kind of hit him in the mouth a little bit and had him reeling, but they seemed to have recovered a little bit, but their great xca could do in that.
Matchup downstairs. Giannis 10 of 16., just like buchevich on the take markel, the average 14 threes a game that’s fourth best in the nba left hand. Nick buchevich, the magic’s partnership with the frc, has been conducting a voter registration campaign with the theme get off the bench. You know we talked about it earlier: aaron gordon’s, not playing and hopefully he’s, going to be back for the next game, as gary clark sets up and gets another triple. This is where’s your leading scorer. So over the top uchovich they’ve fronted him. He gets the best of them, marvin we’ve, seen they have that mismatch, and how about that versatility with booch can also score with his back to the basket and nice three and a half left in a wild third or it looked like milwaukee was ready to go Out in front instead, another triple for nick buchevich midway through the second quarter, loose, stop. Marvin williams goes to the ground to save it and a good give and go d, magento, nine point game, annis and birch and blocked away by lopez. So birds tried to put his body into brook it didn’t exactly dj augustine using birch and ken birch, who only averaged the challenge in for the first time in the second half they’re trying to get terence ross on the run, and he gets it point game way. Back when it’ll be bledsoe blocked away by ennis and a foul by james dennis, and he ain’t gon na, like that dominant performance over the course of the season final minute of a productive third augustine going to the rock d.
j augustine. Thank you jared. The start of the fourth bledsoe out there with the dita kumbo former, gets hit and goes to the first 12 weeks of the season and isaac was out after the first of the year with a knee injury uh before the injury is sustained here. What a pass middleton far off he’s got 15 points and now four of nine from beyond the arc conanted pre on the arc patch connection’s got it torch, Laughter, bunsen burner it’ll be terence ross in the mid range game yeah. I thought he was going to use the hammer there, he tried to roll it under it’ll, be augustine and he gets the role as bledsoe trying to he has as long as he has. You know how tough he is. You know they say a lot of times. The shooter who’s not, but he is that’s huge chris middleton ends up being a wasted possession. Now. How long can they go without buchevich on the floor? Good pocket pass brook lopez and it barely got about ross they’re attacking that defensive, backboard it’ll be ross. He got away with the hammer is a difference maker when he gets it going bucks now, 12 of 36 on their threes and dj augustine. So, a little more than six to play 16 for ross, as you mentioned, and make it 18. and i’ll tell you what they are: dicing milwaukee up and really it’s been middleton. Who is struggling to contain that movement and he’s going to get an m1 there? A lot more from your second best player moving forward free on the arc got him again: 14 point game and a shocker gon na be george hill and it was buchovich who changed that shot.
Christine’S soldier yeah he wasn’t exactly like his established position. There fournier. Can he get one? Finally, yes, first hill, on the run, this folks was back in there great look. George hill got the triple impressive performance by the mavs as well. That was a good game to watch last night now, it’s fournier big one. He got it: possession by the bucks, boltz didn’t, call glass but it’s a second chance fournier a triple got him hard. You see the dominance of the season series, so nobody could have anticipated this today, bolts with muchovich great pocket pass inside augustine great off the bench like ross and balance across the board.
