They either should've had Giannis as his main defender, which he was in 2021 when they swept the Heat. Giannis guarded Butler for 113 possessions that series and held him to 14 ppg on 29% shooting. Even this year, whenever Giannis was switched onto Butler he made some shots but more often times than not he passed the ball back out and deferred; just like he does when Tatum guards him.
Or if Jrue was so adamant about guarding him, the Bucks should've aggressively trapped him like they did with DeRozan last year and forced the others to beat them, which they only started to show they were capability of vs the Knicks and Celtics.
Bud honestly should've been fired last year after his defensive plan in a game 7 vs Boston was to dare Grant Williams, A 41%
3PT SHOOTER, to shoot TWENTY
wide open threes and obviously got burned for it. Dumbass probably got him mixed up with Robert Williams
