Phoenix Suns - Hand on the Trophy as the Bucks Go Down

Join Monish and Nishant as they talk about the day's action in the NBA. The Phoenix Suns win comfortably taking a 2-0 lead in a series that now moves to Milwaukee. The Suns caught fire from 3 in an otherwise less than overwhelming display. The Bucks on the other hand had another monster performance from Giannis who dropped 40-12 with a steal and 3 blocks and no one to support him. Jrue Holiday and Middleton had off nights shooting 31-33% from the field. Can the Bucks overcome their choking troubles and a coach that seems to make adjustments at a glacial pace in game 3?

What do we make of Giannis' leadership and maturity and the parallels emerging between Giannis and Middleton to Shaq and Kobe - where the latter in both cases was the guard that was the go-to finisher. Meanwhile, out West, the Clippers fight back yet again off of a monster performance from Paul George ably aided by his role players to bring the series to 3-2.

Join Monish and Nishant as they talk about the weekend's NBA playoff action. The Milwaukee Bucks pulled off a series turnaround after their comeback in game 6. Giannis led from the front and Middleton finally live up to his closer role. KD put up a heroic performance and was easily the best player on the court but ultimately the Bucks dug in and prevailed in overtime pulling off a thrilling Game 7 upset in a hostile away arena. Speaking of hostile away arenas, the Hawks had an upset of their own cooking. Holding the 76ers to under 100 is no mean feat and the Hawks beat the sixers without Bogdan and with a miserable shooting night from Trae! Is this the end of the process? Who would have guessed the Eastern Conference Finals would be between the Hawks and the Bucks at the start of the season? The West kicked off its conf finals without Kawhi and CP3. But it continues to be Devin Booker's world - the Suns superstar dropped a 40 point triple-double to take the Suns home in G1. All this

Zion - Underperformance or Unreasonable Expectations?

Join Monish and Nishant as they discuss whether or not Zion has been performing to the level of the expectations fans and the media have from him. If this is indeed considered a mismatch between expectations and production - is this a case of unreasonable expectations on a player so young in the league or a legitimate case of a star not delivering on his potential so far in his very short career in the NBA.

Join Monish and Nishant as they discuss the new and improved Milwaukee Bucks. Are they really new and improved from a post-season readiness perspective? &nbsp;Sure Jrue is a significant upgrade on Bledsoe but can this team go places in the post-season without Giannis elevating his game and adding shooting to his arsenal and improving on his abysmal FT shooting?

Get Lavine Outta Chicago!

Kyrie's M.I.A - Steve Nash has no clue where Kyrie is or when he'll back, Dinwiddie has a long term injury, KD's performance though world-class aren't translating to enough wins.

Join Monish and Nishant as they discuss the Balkan battle that saw the Joker and Luka Doncic put up 38 points each in an overtime thriller.

The 3-4 Nuggets and Mavs - Far from the Powerhouses They Were Expected to Be?

Join Monish and Nishant as they discuss the 3-4 Denver Nuggets and their form. Jokic putting up serious MVP trip-dub numbers but with MPJ in and out, Jamal a shell of the beast that he was in last season's bubble, and no Jeremi Grant on defense, can we still look at the Nuggets as a powerhouse in the West poised to make another deep playoff run? Was Bubble Jamal just a hot streak and it's all unraveling now? How potent does their offense need to be to overcome the 29th ranked defense in a league of 30 teams? Also on the cards, Dallas Mavericks have a 3-4 start to the season of their own! Luka's looked short of his conditioning best despite his numbers saying otherwise. Their defensive trials continue with intermittent success but are any of these scalable and portable to the playoffs? How much of a boost is Porzingis' reported early return from injury and to where will that elevate the Mavs in a tough West? All this and more on today's Triangle Offense! --- Send in a
