Bucks-Nets: Game 5 loss shows Giannis Antetokounmpo is not that guy, and Mike Budenholzer is not that coach

Let's get this straight right off the top: The Milwaukee Bucks did not choke in their crushing Game 5 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night, a game which they led by as many as 17 points. They got beat by Kevin Durant, who is so much better than the best the Bucks have to offer that it doesn't even matter that Kyrie Irving is out and James Harden is basically down a leg.

Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo speaks out on guarding Kevin Durant after getting roasted for not doing it

As Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant was roasting the Milwaukee Bucks to a crisp in Tuesday’s epic Game 5 comeback, Giannis Antetokounmpo was getting roasted for not stepping up to the challenge and trying to slow down the scorching-hot KD. As a former Defensive Player of the Year winner, many believe Giannis should have taken on the Durant assignment instead of constantly standing in the corner against Joe Harris. The critics included several other NBA players, including Draymond Green, and this debate is similar to the one had last season when Jimmy Butler killed Milwaukee.

Giannis Antetokounmpo wants to guard Kevin Durant in Game 6, but that's not a cure-all for Bucks' defense

Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant can score 49 points on pretty much anybody, but typically, when he's on his way to that sort of night, opposing coaches try to counter by putting their most accomplished defender on him (if they didn't start the night out that way). Mike Budenholzer didn't do that on Tuesday. As Durant shredded his defense over and over and over again, the Milwaukee Bucks coach stuck with P.J. Tucker until foul trouble forced Khris Middleton to take on the assignment. Budenholzer's former Defensive Player of the Year, Giannis Antetokounmpo, occupied his typical space as a weak-side help defender.
