Marcus moved his feet after Gianis was up in the air.. I think that's actually a decent call because he wasn't set.

edit: but if you're going to review both calls? one has to go the Celts way imo.
That’s not what the replay showed. Live was possible but replay showed him set

Let's not forget about the goaltending that wasn't called on Hayward's shot. That cost the C's another two points.

The missed goaltend was the play of the game. Bucks hit a three down the other end on the next play. Refs fucked this game about 8 different ways when it counted. Why the fuck can’t you replay an obvious goaltend.

where I was last at
this is an annoying loss- after coming from 15 down in the first 3 minutes and getting nothing from Tatum they still played well enough to get fucked by the refs

Are you sure? What I saw was Marcus shift his feet to make sure he was outside the restricted area..but Gianis had already left his feet. Anyone able to get screen shot?

Tatum was 2 for 18, or actually 1 for 17, considering that first bucket of his was a gift when Milwaukee accidentally knocked it in and he happened to be the closest to the play.

if Walker plays regular minutes and Tatum isn't a bag of poop the Celtics can beat this team.
But the Bucks didn't have an important player in Bledsoe...who poops his pants in the playoffs compared to Divencenzo tonight...oh wait. Yeah the C's do have a shot in the playoffs.

Happy with how the team played despite some down showings from Tatum etc. Soft batch refs got swayed by a digital crowd.

It's foolish that the play is even reviewable. They blow 25 judgment calls over the course of the night and then change one critical one at the end to keep Giannis in the game.

I don’t watch a ton of basketball- Is “hostile act” a real thing? Wtf was that about. A foul doesn’t have to be a “hostile act”

I don't disagree with that

edit: especially when all of the calls down the stretch benefited the Bucks.

I think you can only challenge if it’s a technical on a non-call or some BS? And that’s the standard for a tech.

Oh, they OVERTURNED a foul on Giannis? LOL, I came in late and figured Stevens challenged a non-call.

That’s some rigged shit.

Was gonna say, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen Bledsoe play well.

Full Kemba will make a massive difference. With Tatum off they had trouble creating any mismatches and the sets broke down.

I would still like an explanation how Giannis punches Theis in the nuts as he fights through a screen and while its ruled not hostile, how the fuck its not a foul.

Grande said the charge might have been ok because of when GF started his move. Max disagreed

Neither Max nor Grande could believe the “non hostile act” wasn’t called a common foul.

I think it also started a semi fast break where the Bucks hit a three on that possession?

The goaltend also kept the C's from getting back on D and set like they would after a made shot.

deep inside Guido territory
I was ok with the overturned charge because Smart was still in the restricted area when Giannis initiated contact. The non foul on the nut slap of Theis was horrible though.

I just can’t get over how bad Tatum was. No touch, no rhythm, turning the ball over, seemingly looking like he didn’t do much of anything over the pandemic. He better find his game and fast or they’re out of the playoffs in the first round if they get Philly.
