From the league runs two of the riverfront. This season we're Wisconsin sports fan's column too tall until bill Michael show. Here's your holes they know Michaels. No Michael show is on the air I think you know my goes radio Joseph across the floor we got Dillon here judge here everybody do studio today everybody's excited Dillon's heading down that I just going to be their jury going to gain nine. The serve Joe's gonna be there tonight. They're much bigger now parking tickets. Lot of excitement in 2000 Milwaukee Bucks go back to be mourners rarely senator the series knotted up in one game apiece but clearly Milwaukee has played extremely well in this series. Then we bring in now he is the chief operating officer of the Milwaukee Bucks Mike McCarthy now joining us in the Schneider orange hotline hello Mike NATO and. I guys how are you don't we are excited are you guys excited. Couldn't be more since I actually look we're looking here at the Bradley Center with every chair whether it's a fear with the your shirt on and its imposing I wouldn't wanna play these guys. It is going to be an energy like we haven't seen in quite some time and I don't even know when the Bucs went to the post season maybe 56 years ago that we're gonna have that kind of energy down there I think there's a real genuine expectation. For this team to win and possibly advance and first of all ticket sales now have from what we understand it's sold out neo in the it's available is the resale of the secondary tickets through NBA invoke start come correct. Yes there are zero seats available OK guys want to make sure that Saturday. On the other aspect of this is my assumption is this this does nothing but help the Milwaukee Bucks and ticket sales down the road I notice that you guys have a marketing campaign going on right now that you secure your seats for next year that also gives users purity. Going into the new building correct. Yes it just helped build the energy for the brand. Overall long term terms of a year and a year now the new building. Short term terms of additional playoff games went in six so there's there's nothing quite like the playoffs and being competitive in the play or your suggesting. That but that does as much to solidify a connection and based keep sort started out Bucs. What is this guys why let me ask you this first fans coming to the game tonight what can they expected I would assume you guys are camping it up as far as entertainment goes so before during the game that kind of thing correct. Yeah well first of all there is a pep rally out in front of the building in front of the Northwestern Mutual at church. That's gonna happen three hours before the game starts so that live bands as food and beverage. There's a lot of interactive are things happening with our sponsors like where most insane. And that's going to be a celebration of an already great year and more great since become the B a lot of it just seeing the speakers. Like music. So that's the first part of the and it's in the package and want to come in the arena. We're gonna have kind of the state in the yard game operations experience so. We liked pride ourselves I'll be here and lose or draw the people have a last. Night. We're only focused on the winning part of that but it it's going to be a great night. All I gotta ask you this I've had a lot of people tweet me in and sit me some emails aren't so I wanted to ask you directly the other night Gus Johnson I I'm sure you've probably heard about this. Got to really excited during the shot that went down actually sunk the bucks chances to win in game two. Have you ever ask Gus to tone it down so to speaker to be more of a homer or do you just like kind of let him fly and be the broadcaster he has. Well you know it's the beauty of what he's ringing season nationally known broadcaster he's he's prominent and has done and CAA is. And national broadcasts for a long time and so easy to sell it to celebrate her of the NBA and it's higher quality and use his reaction. Is fairly natural and organic. And and that's not staged. Some folks might think otherwise but he he actually is just on privately enthusiastic but anything he's been. Don't while basketball court. That being set I know it's an adjustment. Or box fans who got hurt certain approach perhaps another markets that you called Palmer amateur that was the word but. You know where where things are a little more slanted this this dial for the most part and he's much more on the I'm on the national balanced side. But I I understand where people coming from but I I think we're lucky to have Gus and his energy on on the fox telecast along with Marcus on the spot shows that we need to work. We're proud to have that be component of what books and experience. Business wise what has this dine them for the bucks franchise obviously a nice now meant announcement from Marquette that you gonna get the incivility tournament after a couple of rounds back again. Once the new building his build you guys are going to be conjunction with that the what is is done for business for the Milwaukee Bucks. Of being in the playoffs yeah well just be a national brand. Yeah I mean. Listen to it all starts with ownership and putrid presidential level where. What we're in a situation where we think we're gonna create a state of the art brand. No matter where we are and we happened to be in Milwaukee and I'm actually eat straight Wisconsin we think we're going to be the end the nation at terms and around sports and entertainment company. State of the art arena. They'll be no act that won't come through Milwaukee that made it may be to chase these days but when we're through with this the new building launched there isn't any. Musical trio or family event that won't make it's way too but walker art all the right people make sure that happens. You know qualifying for the playoffs and having an all star an and all of those other things just health credibility. Urged that. Fox and book and the going to be joined up the next several years. The there was some people like Arabic you know people that are dealing with the boxing news suffered through the good the bad the ugly talk about John McLaughlin Jim Clair ski and I know that you've guy Gus in them on the call now. Bite at some point what you say this team really does finally hit that post season where you guys are heading towards the finals are heading towards Eastern Conference finals. Any thoughts about down the road about allowing those guys you do some something via the post season and enjoy the fruits of their efforts for so many years there were fruitless so to speak. Well John engine or both appearing in the pre and post game tonight and Jim was in the pre and post game pursue games on out John has hasn't typically made any road trips. That's couple years now. So we we have roles for them that are property and have real impact would have viewers and we obviously respect everything they've done historically and and in the short term we wouldn't have a banner in the building without with their names on it we didn't feel that like. We're trying to really do what's best for everybody concerned and we grant and Jim and John we'll see ball bam in meaningful roles on the telecast tonight on fox sports Wisconsin. They wanted to ask you as well and come off the topic of tonight but the ED league team in someplace to send some of the younger guys that need a little. Polishing so to speak what does it mean business wise regards. I think I think the it is important for any team in the way of developing players and there are a lot of examples of players that out about. Add meaningful roles with the parent team that started with you eighteen. We have that advantage for certain the the second period manage ferocity that Oshkosh in our market. And we believe that we're going to be moving box tickets in Oshkosh and vice Versa. And so it just hop skip and a jump and who need to fill a roster spot with an injured player than geographically we're able to do that. So both. In the way of synergies of selling. Ticketing packages and sponsorships. Creating staffing opportunities where folks can work involved places. And then obviously. Helping our team in the on court product. All of those things make our structure perfect trip try and be league strategy. At what point do you guys talk about next year and making trips around the stadium kind of reaching out to a lot of those Al or markets again do you have you guys already finished that planning for next year is that after the season once you get into the off season. Well not finished at all we'd we have junkets plan for the entire Rossi all around the state of Wisconsin our goal long term. Sit by the owners and Peter Sagan has been to be that the national team and Wisconsin. And I think we've shown a lot of evidence that that's our interest Oshkosh. Selections are believed in being one example but there are several other you'll see we're we're. Gonna take a major presence throughout the state or Wisconsin. And we're gonna be rolling out a lot of those measures that very short term in some bizarre post season is over which is hopefully not kind soon. Mike appreciated as always thanks for coming on for a couple minutes and I was is exciting time and you're very very busy so we appreciate your time okay. Absolutely thanks so much they go Mike McCarthy Milwaukee Bucks is chief operating officer joining us for a couple of minutes in the Schneider or challenge shatter Harry drivers right now you work hard to treat you fair eighty plus years in the beginning it and call made 144 prior to go to Schneider jobs are comes soak. Basically saying look we don't tell Gus Johnson went to say or what to do it's it's organic enthusiasm to it what's it genuinely want. Bomb we don't ask him to be quote the homer. Are to where he's just gonna call it to one side he's just whatever comes out comes out go with it and if there's a reason to rain and and obviously they will. And then Jim and John will be part of the pre in the post today from those there were asking about John McLaughlin Jim pesky shall be a part of that today as well. He ended the other two key things was what does it mean business wise from Oshkosh and obviously he answered that question but more so. To those that were emailing me from the cross and baroque walk and a player an alum that part of town now rice lake. They're gonna announce some other junkets and they're gonna try to reach out even wider than net as he said you know throughout the state of oh Wisconsin. To kind of be Wisconsin's national teams so there ego hopefully that answered all your questions for those that are gonna tweeting me as things were going on and organically asking Mike McCarthy though. The bucks CEO OO. What you wanted to know rather than just specifically were Joseph and I wanted to know. And getting Georges on the Schneider orange outline harried drivers right now you work hard they treat you fair eighty plus years having any it and call an 844 prior to go to Schneider jobs. Dot com are you still convinced the box can win this series against Toronto why are you convinced him that. Because I'm telling you why job when we come back I'll tell you in my thought I kind of mentioned it yesterday today I'm feeling OK I'm not I'm not. Badgers beating LSU booked it kind of feeling it but I'm feeling it's really it's close it's close state a relative on talk about national Michael should. Listening to marsh field clinic and Michael sports talk yeah. For the number one thing is the calm demeanor of your coach he is our leader and we look to advance and we see him not rattle him we all come everything's good. The second thing is again just young enough not to know you know not a million. First round of the playoffs game two in a hostile environment. Are you don't know what that is. Hordes of Jason Jerry. No Michael show continues radio Joseph here. I'm bill Michaels and Dillon's here jock is here everybody in house tonight. Everybody seems to be don't of the game tonight. Joseph said down their chart sitting down there. Dillon's heading down tonight as a fan. I would mind going as a fan. I I have Steelers L for some tickets. We'll see what happens. Wouldn't mind it. But hey if not I have no problem going out tonight someplace. And watching it with when everybody else. No problem wanna. 855830864. Rated by phi B 30. 8648 on loans we kept dot com tall free TARP line. It was a shout how convinced are you. That the blocks are gonna win the series. I said this yesterday and all ever radar right now. The bucks one game one pretty much going away. They played more physical basketball they play better defense they move the basketball. Fundamentally played more sound. Not all get me wrong I understand it that when you look at this game. Lowery was not hitting in game 14 point sell was it however. The Raptors shot. 48%. From the field and beyond the three point line. And barely pulled it out in game two at home. Lowrie and DeRozan can Bahrain for 45 in game two at home and they barely pulled it out. I think the box as you're honest it and people said after game 20 we woke mop. We told him we've arrived. I think the Bucs are playing with house money they have nothing to lose. They're expected to lose so being that team is looking for experience being that team that's just Kyle let it all hang out they don't have any pressure at all. Now you want to win at home. But I don't think the Bucs take the floor tonight when any pressure at all in of their listening. If your yeah honest. If your moose if you Delhi if you're anyone of these guys if you're on you're listening to this program right now you have nothing to lose. If nothing you weren't expected to do that go back to bed Denver game mid season you when he and expected he would be in the post season. So what you do on right now the excitement you bring into the town to the state. You're supposed to be doing as anyway he had nothing to lose Toronto. On the other hand was expected to be here Toronto. Has bid Toronto was in your shoes remember go back a few years. When Toronto was supposed to be the pesky upstart team. And Toronto won against eight Jason Kidd Brooklyn nets team that was full experience. Ended up taken seven games no alternately Toronto lost that series. But this is that the roles have been reverse Toronto's expected to win DeRozan. And Serge Ibaka and Lowry they're all expected to be there and expected to win their starters may be better when you match him up man for man. I think the Bucs have the better bench and that's where they're going to excel. I think the bucks are gonna win the series. You know I think the bucks are gonna win this series. And how many games. We don't it's gonna go six. Bucks are gonna win it and say expected to be more Israeli senator place is gonna go actually a pass. Gonna go crazy yeah yeah easy. I think the bucks are gonna win in six. Just a gut feeling I'm not sitting your putting money on a prediction wise and all accustomed to simply say I I like what I've seen out of this bucks team they have not stopped. So just to reiterate. You think they will win this series and not can they when singer I think they will win this series in six games. If it goes seven they won't win. No there be a bigs won't win it there it's it's it's. It's Toronto it's not only MBA or anything like dampened still very hostile environment to play and the Bucs handle it well for the first couple games. But I think if you you woo as is -- said you now walk mop. To realize that this to you the Bucs are pretty good team they have to now actually play you Toronto. But I think just from what I see. Those. Just go beat kids let it all hang out you have nothing to lose. And if you do that you play your game you play a little bit a defense you get transition basketball and you pass the ball better than what you did in game two. You when the series I don't think they can keep up with the I think your bench is better. It's all demean this series is not all on yards. Can Middleton give you something can moves give you something confined to be something and deluge of sump. Broad sense kind of that that straw that stirs the drink when he moving the basketball. But those the four guys ahead Delhi's got to give me some good play defensively he's got to be that. He's yet not save a groin puncher OK he can't be that guy but he's he's got to be that nasty in the trenches guy that gives you a little bit of that defensive energy. And a moose is gonna give you the points. And then everything else has to flow. Just I just feel. All of your optimists just feel like I I just IR I started looking at this I watched that game I watched game two and watch game one game one was too easy to watch or watch game two. And a bunch is made minimal minimal mistakes. But they had hands flailing you don't see that all the time something that's a lost art in basketball. Okay. Getting a hand in the guys face okay Lowrie just hit that pull up jumper meaning it was fantastic Prague and had him write his face is on you do. Good defense but. Then they they have fast hands the squad a lot of things not a lot of things down dive in the floor for a lot of basketball with the bucks are gonna win the series. Well. I love your optimism though I do it you know journalist here not the only one that feels that way. Mom do I think the box can win this series are they capable of winning this series against the Raptors. On I'd say going into game two that I would reassess. How I feel about this bucks team. Odd to connect how well they playing game two yes I believe the Bucs can win this series against Toronto if they continue to play at this level especially. If you oddest doesn't have as spore of a shooting performance as he did in game two meaning the line that he put together it's when he for fifteen and seven. It's pretty darn good but the fact you were nine of twenty or shooting. Measure b.'s hit a few more shots then. Changes everything may have yeah dissing Chris Middleton are on their game offensively. That's definitely gonna cancel out what Kyle Lowry and the martyr roles and are putting out there if not my game given the edge if they are produce in that way. I don't think the Bucs will win this series I think depth when the bucks are gonna win one of these next two games at home. On this is an important game tonight because of the box win. Now all of a sudden you talk about pressure the Raptors have all the pressure in the world no other gonna have even more pressure because the Raptors. They have a team right now kept that can definitely get to the Eastern Conference finals I think the end their experience they've been there they understand it. But I just I knew. If a box lose tonight boxer in big trouble because now it's a must win game in game for anybody can't winning game four it it's over there's no way the Bucs can handle. I had to walk to the cycle just above 500 at home it's not like the Bucs were world beaters and home or I'm just saying that I believe. They don't have a no lose I believe you come out and play loose you get and to play your crowd and and let the first two minutes kind of Wear often than you getting your game and I think you're gonna win the game yet but I don't I don't. See a thing is for Bucs fans are going of this game to Maynard going to game four they definitely don't wanna be disappointed with a really bad performance from this team I don't think that's gonna happen I think the bucks are gonna continue to play. Arm with the same energy the same grit that they had been in these first two games it's it this is this series can be pretty exciting and it and I do believe it could go. To a game seven. Almost certainly caught my eye but I don't think they wondered if it goes seven I think they win it in six. I I can't say they're gonna win and flexible Fido again. I'm I am I'm perfectly I'm cool I'm cool as a cucumber. If the Bucs do not win this series because again my goal all along this season. Was just getting in N. In getting a taste of the postseason anything else great that happens of this team at they win the series they do amazing things it's all gravy at this point. Next season now ladies and gentlemen we are talking about the box not only getting into the playoffs but also winning the series that's worked that's where we should be. When it comes to expectations of this team this bucks team next season. With or without Jabari Parker should be a top 14 in Eastern Conference I im done talking about this bucks team. Taking a step back miss in the playoffs go one of the lottery. All that is over. It's done the blocks going forward with ya on us as you were star. Should be going to the playoffs every single season now it lease for the next 567 years we are done talking about. You know missing out on the playoffs here this bucks team needs to be and they can not take the steps back. Bet they did in previous seasons like going up against Cleveland as the eight seeing it took a step back. That year and then I guess I Chicago Bulls are still Weir's got older and taking another step back and I need to get to where. And talent I think they're going to be a good team has got a phone calls 'cause we had some people on hold for laws go to a Marino on the north side Marino walk in the program. Marino. Kick Bob why was he too is in West Bend might welcome the program was going comment. You guys doormat. To all of are you for the game and I albeit. Now that. It's going to be electrifying but you know our. I don't I don't I don't want to jinx this team in any way shape or form but I was there a couple of years ago but I old game. We hobbled by if the points I swear if that happens tonight. All I'm jumping ship Billy won't be the first one already odds that. There are hot dog man that was just. You don't. You don't even bring your helmet tonight you can be get ago. I hope so we got fired up and access at. I think the boxer to win my twenties I just think I played that well didn't get quite nervous starts like that the world will come off the ground so it's not all that right now. Think appreciate the focal I think the Bucs win tonight and Imus in the box win by three. Hard fought win but a win in home. Huge win because Toronto has all the pressure Toronto it I don't think is to be some crazy. Double digit eighteen point winner in like no I don't I don't know he has got you know got to win this game. So they're gonna give you everything they had it is a must win for her it's much less himself admitted there is third evidently that's Alou Lee. No pressure on the box. None. There warning was supposed to do Lewis. So go let it fly guys. Just go let it fly the only pressure I think the Bucs have on them right now I think again this goes back to optimism with fans. Yeah a lot of fans are expecting the bucks to win and a lot of bucks fans are sick and under what actually win this series and you just delighted to come out disappoint your fans that's the only pressure they have other than that I only pressure other than that you don't have it let it fly. Flag go let it fly and I want to see Jason Kidd. All over like up pit bull all over all pork job on the officials asses tonight. To make sure that it's fair the united giving more experienced guys that the calls in the phantom calls. I mean all over them tonight more go microchip next. This is the marsh new. Like cool sports. Yeah. Is that when you win game one you know they gonna come out more physical in game two. Played played more desperate and were. Russell also mean you'd do the same vein. Kelly. Bucks tonight to be a wires relish undertaken on the Toronto Raptors. Coming out of the top of the hour Jack Armstrong Raptors television analyst on TSN he's going to be joining us. Who wanna hit me out hit me up on Twitter at bill underscore Michaels had bill underscore my goals or at radio Joe's sports. Policy can find a cell by emailing us the old fashioned way bill Michaels added bill Michael sports dot com. Over on FaceBook go get a conversation going there shortly. FaceBook dot com to search go Michaels be verified blue check mark that's the one you like we always appreciate it. Do you back on the phone calls and just a minute I said bucks and six I'm feeling kind of confidence. Bucs and six bucks get a win tonight by three. On cross my fingers. This Porsche program brought to by Marshall clinic don't just slid a shot and it the Marshall clinic they fixed my any upcoming back in the game meant feeling good doing better than ever. A really good right now it's matter of fact in an even though I am coming off to be in sick atone for the most part as far as the body goes feeling good after the fix that need. And as far as being sick goes if you have something yelling you like I did call Marshall clinic in maybe didn't teach you prescription right over the phone. Call 844 care way that is a 44 care way nerves the Marshall clinic don't just live. Shy and how we got back ally Marino calling from the north submarine I don't that I met what's up. I and I think it's a debacle. I grew it's I don't just let the I agree with Kirk that Manila but that streak Sunday night the final eight is it that you know they go back and they're still not at and crock but there's one down I wanna see in this series luck think we're ready. We saw the top in these of wonder why. No object and if I haven't played in my means series like this economy that Michael able to finished and then Eric did you its in its only points. He's been a coach's cell decision not to play you know Weathers to whether vision that's his guy that's he's gonna sink or swim with him I don't know but I would love to have seen Beasley at least get a couple of offensive opportunities eight. He's been better than a lot of it's just for short. Exactly. Public of court in this series. Maybe comes in and not silly is one of those other ex separate info call those other X-Factor. 8558308648855. B 30864. In loans but it dot com tore free talks. I'm telling you right now there's no reason for mirrors until out of that should be planes and I know there there's zero reason in the second he sees the floor. Watch Twitter blow up from box fans there is no reason at all why he should be plane. Now what we don't know what's going out of Michael b.'s we really don't we have how many guests of ominous speculates. You don't may be he's still hurt maybe he's not 100%. But I feel like it's a no brainer for him to at least see fifteen minutes on the floor. I don't think that's asking for too much you've seen what he's been able to deal he's another great acquisition pitch on him in this season. Really Hess then you give up Tyler and is forum. And you really weren't sure what kind of role he was gonna have off the bench for this team he's been very productive more so. The nears its lead of action you're not paying him the same amount of money bigger and mirrors are right now he's just not a one year deal. And it'll be chosen to see if the Bucs retain him for next year I had that that's another question but Michael Beasley. For what it's worth he succeed in my expectations this year he's been very good in. And before he got hurt he was hit yeah. He was really produce seen arm after Jabari Parker went down. I just I don't understand what's going on colonel what Jason kids thought processes that are out there's been stuff going on a practice I don't get it. Mean Gary wool Fulham in random on the show yesterday bill. And blessed and he spoke to Beasley would which was couple weeks ago when he ran hard he was on our present 100% right. So don't know if anything's changed I'd be curious to see if anyone will ask Jason Kidd about this. Armed but Michael Beasley has the place if the Bucs were going wanna win you need his scoring. Here's something else to think about I was telling you have days and before that I think all the pressure's on trial and some B were calling up saying no it's it's on the box and I disagree. Here's another aspect to this a while back Dwayne Casey the head coach of the Raptors. Gets the voter competent no no no no no no no he's not going anywhere he's our guy. Now you hear rumors you lose to Milwaukee. And you're underway now. We gave you surge we got to Rosen we got Lowrie. You got some players here he has some talent here and you lose to Milwaukee is at Milwaukee some against the the bastard step job. Used to Milwaukee these guys are playing not only for their playoff lives but they're playing for now their coaches well. Now sometimes I can motivate you to play a little bit better but. As far as having pressure you've got all the pressure you've got all the pressure. No doubt about JC kids rotation slightly changed in game two. He left Tony snell on the bench were using a Malcolm Braga and indelible dove in the tandem. Which raised a few eyebrows but Kidd then insisted. That was just a matter of matchups in rhythm and nothing against Tony snell who played only 21 minutes. Some would be anxious to see what happens coming up tonight how if he goes back to Tony snell giving him more minutes or what's gonna happen there could think towed Tony Snow certainly earned it. Nor forget Toronto won three out of four meetings with the Bucs during the regular season but. So far they have split in the box came back a come back home with all the momentum in the world and I really believe I really believe. Porsche program being brought to our differently cousins subs on telling you sit back relax enjoy this one that I cannot go to the game. Yeah and what you go to a sports bar some like that. Grab yourself some cousins subs hunker down Garrity for game time get ready for the call and get excited about the Milwaukee Bucks in Toronto Raptors coming up to nice in the box by three. You can get as you take that last bite. And they hit that bucket to walk away with a win for the B wires rallies and even. You got all that have brought him on how you are you're grow that's a weighty that to me go on tonight. Go mentality out when you're apple your android phone that is cousins selves were they believe in better you deserved better and they have everything for everybody. You to bill Michaels with a Slattery or Joseph or ignoring it the chicken eating at the stakes you can get the Italian. All that kind of good stuff soups salads if you wanna do that instead wanna go to lighter side even have a veggies so so anything you need anything you want right their cousin sub. But it cousin subs dot com and they got that big party packed as well. Coming up after the top of the TS and he's going to be joining us coming over the next saying that we're gonna your from Jason Kidd. As well always Jason Kidd. Spoke after yesterday's practice also let's go back to phone calls talk to Kirk listening to us and Whitewater cart welcome to the program that was going on. You don't open that Michael. I think what what was saw. That they don't possible get it off and there but wait they're saying in two separate guys that I didn't get it's it's it's it's when you're gonna. Match up with Burt are. You can these long Heatley you. I think we could make it two of them except yeah I get back into the order and let everybody else hearty. I checked my my best result probably a lot of that is an absolutely but I'm on the board but. I've also heard that he didn't want them edible or why don't got eminently decent sinker with this. Well that's just did he was a guy he had him when he was in Bob Brooklyn and you like them they appreciate the phone call you like them there. In and I I agree with you and I said this yesterday on the show I said if you're gonna sink or swim with him if you sync with him. When your putting better or I wouldn't say better players but we need you wanna talk about the matchup I understand that but when you got somebody hot like Tony snell your stick him on the bench he's only playing a limited number of minutes. As opposed to a guy that isn't you know throwing a basketball and an ocean in his early playing that well anyway. The question then becomes why what would wire you forcing its why you forcing the your own sewed seemingly for sexually agenda. In spite of the team. And that's where people that's for fair answer to get really upset Manning it's go back to and by the way the Henson thing. Was hurt for a while seems to be OK now I just think the fact that he just has a releasing the floor too much down the stretch I think duchess herta. See I I think. At this point is we've seen John Henson step up in the post season yeah he did it against label us quality minutes quite honestly if Henson sees minutes. They can replace Spencer Hawes or John Henson right now if they want to Spencer Hawes defensively has been a liability for this team when he is seen before so far in the playoffs I would rather have John Henson out there. On an N applause really hasn't been hit shots either because yes he stretches the floor unlike Hanson. But I didn't I would rather John Henson out there let's see what he's got if you're gonna play Spencer Hawes who might as well play John Henson to flavor gonna play Mears that's a lot of edged. Honey why don't play Michael Beasley it just doesn't make any sense to me. People bring up the record when Beasley gets extensive minutes and I understand that I'm not saying got a playing forty minutes are always saying look when you're talking about certain periods of time. There's certain guys that I would rather see in the floor. Than others and we're talking about that that's that's all I'm bringing up on my saying Beasley has to subtly play 25 to thirty minutes that's our masking I'm saying hey if he plays. Six to ten gets a couple of buckets plays little defense. You know kind of is the spark when other guys we didn't you know get a little wind I don't have a problem when that 855830864. It was go to Chris Chris what's going on man. What's up and I had beyond. Mine. Well pretty efficient pocket book spans all around and I have been listening gets hurt quite a lot out to get us and so last year and you show interest on the Colin L can't. I think it. I know what are you at house money I guess we're hopeful that thing. But we got to live in the moment right now on the ball and it has after the ball in plain amazing. It was completely exceeded expectations or flip comment that. Think they're after we got this woman on. I bunny you're gonna play and down on the you're going to be playing on the plaza tonight. Yep yep what is this Milwaukee Bucks playoff fans so every home game at that Iraq into the. You demand our Ivorian was euphoria they go but it's we've got Ben members calling in now yeah huge the official the official ban of the box political boxcar. I did Sox are Bucs were they go crisper you nobody talked to assume. Could I take a quick break come back a lot more to talk about in organ here and Jason Kidd coming up next and I don't like Lucia order. Michael Shaw is on area feel I had the energy.

Jason Kidd that are excited to be back in the lawyers rally senator regulars and all. When you are excited and download to your home. We felt like. We had opportunities. Who looks down and folder full floor so. Focus on the first possession and in game three of finally get a win. Got to find a way to get one they've got to take advantage of it but they got to do a one game at a time they have to be. Only have to be desperate. You have to you know understand what's at stake in this only one game at a time can think about having two games here at home. It's just games three and just stay in the moment. I like the fact that he told the guys ground be physical gon be physical but. Just because you're at home now don't forget your home records not its delegates won games above 500 home your barely over 500 so you can't be comfortable at home. We can never be comfortable we have to understand either desperate. And then aggressive team and just understand you know we. There's never time to be comfortable you have this summer to be comfortable you better but you know right now it's about trust. And and execute your game plan and playing hard. And then also they needed take the three pointer away from the ravages sane is set earlier in the day I used to look you got to defend better you can allow them to shoot 40% from beyond the arc they've got to get a hand so much for race we've got things. But that being said you know us in the right bunker when I was title. On the road. You know for them they can do things anyway just keep it close and so the and the Pacific incapable of. And the young guys there's on maker in Malcolm Braga in and those guys have stepped up they're getting quality minutes to getting our experience but more so. They're contributing as well. Understanding they've worked extremely hard since the summer please let the coaching staff and understand what we're asking.
