Default Anyone's opinion changing .....

Now with the Bucks being up 2-1, do they have a chance to win the series yet? I'm keeping with my original prediction ... Sixers in 7. How about everybody else?

The Bucks have a great chance now, this series may go into 7 games, which would have been surprising to me at the beginning of the series.

With Iverson injured, Bucks in 6.

Default Who the Milwaukee Bucks remind me of

One thing I do like about the Bucks is they remind of the old "Run T.M.C." Warriors of the late 1980's and the early 1990's, which I was a big fan of. That Warriors' team would get most of their scoring from the 1, 2 and 3 spots with Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, and Chris Mullin and no had inside presence, nothing that good at the 4 and 5 spots.

And this Bucks team is kind of the same way with high scorers coming from the 1, 2, and 3 positions with Sam Cassell, Ray Allen, and Glenn "Big Dog" Robinson and they too don't have anything that good at the 4 and 5 spots. And Ervin Johnson's rebounding on the inside reminds me of the Warriors' Larry Smith who did the same thing for those Warriors' teams.

...just watched my first basketball game since the Toronto series... Iverson STILL hurting from that series... well, if we were going to out, we were taking Iverson with us!!!.. ha ha!

..Iverson's tailbone injury was still evident in Game Four.. then he got knocked in the mouth by an elbow later on and with tooth started bleeding a bit.... nevertheless, he played all but 16 seconds in the game, scoring over 20 points...

that's my "amazing and in-depth" analysis of the past game!

HUGE GAME TONIGHT for both teams. With the Sixers having home court advantage, I see them winning tonight and finish the series in seven games.

GO SIXERS

The game just started, I have a gut feeling the Bucks will come out on top in this game.

Default Game 5

Wow, great game tonight. I just caught the final 10 minutes of the 4th Quarter and I heard the Bucks jumped out to an early lead.

Iverson was 5 for 27 from the field tonight. Talk about rough. But that little guy has a big heart playing threw all his ailments and the rest of the team has a lot heart. Look at Eric Snow playing through his fractured ankle. He was for 7 for 9 from the field off the bench.

Even if you don't like the Sixers, you gotta admire the toughness. But even though Philadelphia won tonight, I do still have a feeling that this series will go 7 games like both Eastern Conference Semifinals series.

Default Lucky win for the 76ers ...

The Bucks completely gift-rapped this game for the 76ers. As much as I love this team, they almost didn't deserve to win last night.

Allen Iverson had another ATROCIOUS shooting night. Aaron McKie missed those two CRUCIAL free throws at the end of the game. At least Eric Snow and Dikembe showed up tonight.

The Bucks should have either A) put the game away early, or B) finished the Sixers off late in the game. Glenn Robinson had one of the easiest shots in his career with just a few seconds left, and flat out missed it. As a Sixers fan, I'M still stunned.

Thank god they lost. GO SIXERS!

What's with everyone, ESPECIALLY on the MLB board, "predicting" things after the fact!?.... be a man!!... predict things BEFORE the series or playoffs starts (e.g.: Me predicting an Avs vs. Devs NHL final), and brag and brag and brag and BRAG if you're right.... and suck it up if you lose!!!!
