THE BUCKS LOOKED RELAXED AND LOCKED IN AS FOR TORONTO THEY LOOKED LETHARGIC.

IN THE FIRST QUARTER ERIC BLEDSOE GOT OFF TO AN EARLY START. WHICH WAS NEEDED BECAUSE HE HAS NOT BEEN PLAYING WELL. HE HAS BEEN INCONSISTENT THROUGHOUT THESE PLAYOFFS.

GIANNIS THREW A SICK NO LOOK PASS TO BROOK LOPEZ FOR AND THE LAY UP AND ONE.

THE BUCKS JUMPED THE RAPTORS EARLY WITH A 11-1 RUN.

GIANNIS DUNKED ALL OVER THE RAPTORS ALL IN ONE PLAY. LOL👇🏽

MILWAUKEE’S ADJUSTMENTS.

STARTING MALCOLM BRODGON.

DID IT HURT OR HELP THEM?

IT HELP THEM EARLY IN THE GAME BUT IN DOING SO THE BUCKS SHORTEN THEIR BENCH.

AS FOR…

THE RAPTORS THEY STARTED THE GAME SHOOTING BRICKS. KAWHI WAS THE ONLY PLAYER BEING AGGRESSIVE EARLY ON HE SCORED 9PTS OFF 3/5 SHOOTING. PHYSICALLY HE DIDNT LOOK AS TIRED OR HURT FROM THE LAST GAME.

KAWHI PUT HIS STAMP EARLY IN THE 4TH. HE WAS HOT! HITTING MID RANGE STEP BACK 3’S. TORONTO JUST PLAYED A SIMPLE HIGH SCREEN AND ROLL WITH KAWHI. HE WOULD GET THE SWITCH AND HIT THE 3! STARTED THE FORTH QUARTER OFF 4/5FG WITH 10PTS.

7:56MINUTES REMAIN.

TIMEOUT MILWAUKEE.

TORONTO TOOK THE LEAD 89- 81 THEIR DEFENSE BECAME SUFFOCATING! GIANNIS WAS STRUGGLING HIS AGGRESSIVE PLAYED RIGHT INTO TORONTOS DEFENSIVE WALL. EVERY-TIME GIANNIS DROVE TO THE BASKET. HE WAS MET BY 3 OR 4 DEFENDERS. HE WAS OUT OF CONTROL AND DID NOT HANDLE THAT SITUATION WELL.

HE NEEDS TO REALIZE ON HOW HE IS BEING DEFENDED BECAUSE TORONTO HAS BEEN PLAYING THIS STYLE ALL SERIES.

THEY GO BACK AND FORTH AND TORONTO CONTINUES TO PLAY THROUGH KAWHI . UNDER 2 MINUTES LEFT AND THE GAME REMAIN CLOSED.

GIANNIS TWEAK IS ANKLE WITH LESS THAN A MINUTE LEFT IN THE GAME AND THE COACH SUB OUT HIM.

(THEY WERE LOSING AND THE COACH SUB OUT THEIR BEST PLAYEE)
