Theres no home court advantage anymore, we dont host anyone in the finals the whole finals will be played in the bubble. Why even bother risking Giannis until the games leading up to the playoffs? Feel like its something ignored going into these games.
To get him used to playing more minutes. Going from 15 minutes to 40 can lead to injuries
Because professional basketball players like to win games of professional basketball
I’m sure that’s why they are choosing to play and risk injury before the playoffs
They havent played in 4 months dumbass
I think they just tryna get in rhythm in real speed because preseason not the same. It’s been a while for everybody so they are most likely just seeing how everybody legs feeling right now. Also probably trying to get a win to start off bubble because e
Play sports and you will know why you would want to win every time you play.
For real, midget B hockey preseason I was still trying my best
Its a game and people like to win. Plus for players - its a job and they like to get paid.
Plus some players do have incentives in their contracts that give them bonuses, like if you get 4 triple doubles you get 50 grand or something
Cause these other teams have something to play for and will be a good warmup for the playoffs.
Didnt he say he hadnt really played since the lockout? He would probably need to get some pt in.
Fuck that, we need that Nets matchup. Yeah we can beat the Magic just fine but we’d still have to actually try. The Nets are an actual G League team, it’s basically a bye.
6.5 games up on Toronto with 8 games to play. They need to win like 1 game to get the 1 seed.
Exactly, our depth is huge. we can squeeze 3 wins out of 8 and garaunteed a one seed without having to risk Giannis at all.
Hopefully it will be the Wizards
To get warmed up, they should play their starters limited min
They should just make sure they secure the one seed so they can have an easier path with the 8th seed which is probably going to be brooklyn. Then they wont have to try in the first round and be more well rested for the rest of their playoff run
Well teams haven’t played in 5 months so taking it easy right before playoffs is not a smart idea. Players aren’t in playoff form
Giannis needs to fix his jump shot. There’s your motivation!
The Bucks are trying to put on a show to win back all the fans they lost by supporting BLM /s
You get to have your arenas music/sound effects in game a 7. Huge edge
Delete this post nephew
If he gets injured in one of these useless games then all of a sudden this post isnt so stupid.
"Were not even trying bro"
