Big props to Semi Ojeleye. He stopped a favored NBA superstar tonight.

Biggest moment of his life and he came through strong and did what the team asked him to.

Amazing. I love it.

semi sucked all year about time he contributed in some form or fashion to help us in the PLAYOFFS

I wouldn't say he sucked all year. His shot has been iffy but he's played hard and defended well. He's a second round rookie and he's starting in the NBA playoffs. I'd say he exceeded expectations.

he didnt play hard, he defended okay. His motor was severely lacking throughout the season as is his offball D. But the last few games he played really well that one can think he will be a nice rotation player in the future.

I wish Tatum can play better as well, because of his terrible play tonight Brad had to play Rozier and Smart a lot of timea together tonight, and that means minutes for Larkin!

He took two charges that went the other way and he limited Giannis. He didn't "stop" Giannis but he was very effective and he played his ass off.

Interesting stat:  Monroe never played, Baynes played 10 minutes, yet despite our lack of size we beat the Bucks 50-37 on the glass.

Without Henson, they donít have a big to hang around the rim. Other than Giannis, nobody is an excellent rebounder and if we hustle we should outrebound them.

We all know Zeller, and Maker hangs around the arc. So this is the series to have Al play the 5 the majority of the time.

I think that has a lot to do with the Bucks continuing to go small, playing Maker (who is tall, but very weak) instead of Henson.

And Al went crazy

I watched when Baynes was biffing Maker around in the game 4 loss in the comeback. Absolutely awesome to watch.

And Baynes is a pretty good passer...so solid!

I remember Ojeleye defended LeBron or someone huge, and he was just an absolute unstoppable brickhouse when they tried to back into him.

Great win, kudos to Smart (loved his energy and how he disrupted the Bucks' offense although he had his fair share of bad turnovers in the 1st quarter) and Ojeleye (thrown into the fire - although he played well in game 4 - to defend Giannis and he did it well, he was just too tentative offensively).

Tatum had a bad game by his standards and Brown wasn't much of a force either compared to the previous game but we still won, thanks partly to Al's huge game.

I don't know if we'll close them out in Milwaukee but seeing how badly their role players underperform and keep missing open shots in Boston, I feel good about a potential game 7 at home - although everything can happen in a game.

like I said he was solid man to man all season. But offball D and motor are lacking apart from a few games. He has played welk this series though, eap the last 4 ganes, that's for sure.

Ahh gotcha.

At least the fundamentals are there. Seems to have an edge in terms of quickness over Brandon Bass.

Worst case scenario, in a defense that switches everything, his lack of understanding could be less of an issue. Even James Harden can look halfway respectable with the way the Rockets defend.
