Can a team called the Suns handle the cold? Bucks vs Suns Preview
What to Watch For: Bucks
Normally the way to counter a team that likes to run is to send your guys back on defense instead of going for the offensive rebound. But it’s not like the Milwaukee Bucks defense is going to stop the Suns anyway, so I feel like they just need to send everyone to get the offensive rebound. That’s what the Chicago Bulls do. It helps keep the opposing team from getting in transition and keeps possessions going. This is not what the Bucks will do because Larry Drew is the least inspiring coach ever.
My current Bucks feelings can be summed up in this gif:
What to watch for: Suns
In stark contrast to the Bucks, the Suns have one of the best offenses in the league. It’s easily the best offense without a certifiable superstar on the roster. They’ve been able to keep this really brilliant offense humming even with Eric Bledsoe out indefinitely. Bledsoe had been brilliant with Goran Dragic in two point guard lineups with both of them averaging over 15 points and 5 assists. But Bledsoe’s value for the Suns has come more on the defensive where he’s a solid man defender. In fact, losing Bledsoe may have helped the Suns offense since it gives more possessions to Dragic.
The Dragic, Channing Frye, Gerald Green 3-man lineup has the third best offensive rating among 3-man lineups in the league. They’re just behind Ray Allen, Chris Bosh, and Lebron James and Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Boris Diaw. Frye has been an important pick-and-pop guy for Dragic. Green has been very efficient from midrange – shooting 52% from that area.
