The Milwaukee Bucks have a lot of challenges in their effort to have a competitive series with the Chicago Bulls in the first round. Like how to score enough to make the games interesting.
In this latest PBT Extra, I talk about one key matchup — Derrick Rose vs. Michael Carter-Willaims. Rose looked more like his vintage self then we have seen in a long time, he was 6-of-9 shooting inside 8 feet, plus was hitting some threes. He was not settling.
The Bucks traded for MCW in the middle of the season in part because of his length and defense. They need that now. If Rose performs the rest of the series like he did in Game 1, the Bucks are not going to be around the playoffs very long.
