We'll be way too cocky coming into this game, and the Bucks, especially TJ Ford, will catch us off guard.

why is A.J. no key reserve?
Because he just had an out of the ordinary game. Besides, even he shouldn't be able to guard TJ Ford, so he'll be pretty useless. Granger, Saras, and Jones all have a better chance of making a positive impact.

But we have alot of better players, quality wins it:
What do better players have to do with a team game? We have no one who can guard TJ Ford, so he'll just run around passing the ball for alley-oops, dunks, and jumpers. Sarunas Jasikevicius is already a poor defender, and he weighs 35 lbs more than Ford. Anthony Johnson is good, but Ford is too quick for him. Jamaal Tinsley's defense is better, but he's still too slow-footed to guard Ford. What's left is Eddie Gill, and he probably wouldn't do a very good job, either. Pollard can guard Magloire, but he can't play him the entire game. Jermaine, Harrison, and Croshere will be dominated. As if we don't have enough problems with those two, Milwaukee then has Michael Redd, who is good enough of a shooter to still have a good game against Artest.

Well TJ will have to score all their points.

Put Artest on Redd and he'll get like 15 tops
Put Jack on Simmons
Croshere will dominate Bogut
JO will do a lot better than Magliore

If Tinsley is playing he shouldn't have that hard of a time with TJ but thats really the biggest threat with Artest on Redd.

In 2004 OG USA team had fast PG's as AI and Wade , so what? Guess who won and who scored more points? Saras or AI and Wade combined. If Pacers play team basketball and help each other on defence, they should win 30 points.

Redd will get alot more than 15.

Jones can guard Ford better than the others.
Artest can hold Redd down.
Croshere won't stop Simmons, but I do not think we will have to worry about him.
Maybe put Harrison on Magloire, even though he tends to foul alot, hes a big body.
JO will put Bogut to shame.

I think it will come down to the bench and how much Tinsley can play.
