    1. Very good performance by the team. Yes, Milwaukee was missing its two best players, but it was a very satisfying win after a shaky start. Galloway was on fire!

    2. If you all want to take a trip down memory lane,
      take a look at Bargnani last night. I want to see him try and shoot over KP. While the Lopez brothers match up will get the hype, watching Bargnani try and guard and score on Prozingis will be fun to watch. 2-1 Bargs sit it out with some random injury.
