Based on what we saw in the series opener, is it a scheme, a specific defender or a lineup that Milwaukee could turn to in order to avoid a repeat in Game 2?With 48 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds in the Atlanta Hawks' Game 1 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, the 22-year-old recorded one of the best scoring performances we've ever witnessed in the conference finals round. Only Dirk Nowitzki, LeBron James and Michael Jordan have recorded bigger scoring nights on this stage.
