Not to linger on the past, but if the Bucks had somehow managed to take one of their opportunities to win Thursday’s game, how would you have seen the series playing out?

AMcG: The Bucks have been in every game in this series, and that game is a real case of what could have been. Of course, we’ll never have a way of knowing, but that could have given Milwaukee a real impetus to kick on and try to cause an upset.

TW: Maybe the Bucks’ momentum carries them into a win in Game 4 in that situation, but either way I highly doubt the Bulls lose much more than another game. They’re just the better team right now, and there’s no way they’d lose the series, regardless of Game 3.

JT: Not that radically different. Of course it would have been great to take one at home and they still can, but it’d be hard to see the Bucks taking one away on the Bulls’ home court. That said, I see the Bulls winning in 5.

BA: I think it would have given the Bucks some confidence and momentum, but the talent and experience of the Bulls still would have probably limited the series to 5 games.
