Raptors must find a way to defend Brook Lopez

  • Bucks finish with a flourish to beat Raptors 108-100 in Game 1 of East finals

Lowry shook off all the criticism surrounding his poor play in the postseason, especially in Game 1s, where he has historically come up short.

Everybody went cold; everyone but Kyle Lowry, that is. He also finished a big fast break dunk midway through the fourth quarter that energised his team. The Bucks shot.398 and.250, respectively, but made six more free throws than Toronto in seven more attempts. Lowry was 5 for 7 in the fourth - and his teammates were 0 for 15.

"Pretty frustrating", Lowry said. "Fourth quarter killed us". They were a little bit more aggressive.

The way the Raptors see it, the adjustment to make the finals might not be an adjustment at all.

The Milwaukee Bucks moved one game closer to playing for a championship by overcoming the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

That steadiness helped Milwaukee survive the Raptors' early hot shooting, which Toronto used to build a quick 13-point lead. The Raptors fell to 8-1 in these playoffs when leading at halftime.

Milwaukee started off sluggish, were caught off guard by the Raptors' intensity on defence, leading to easy transition baskets and an eight-point edge at half. Siakam ended the quarter on a buzzer-beating heave from near the logo, extending the lead back to seven. The Bucks meanwhile connected on 11 three-pointers compared to the Raptors' 15. "I think we got a lot of guys that are capable and contribute". There's no quit in our team.

But Toronto shot 5 for 22 in the fourth, the Bucks finally reclaimed the lead, and the Raptors' chance to steal home-court went awry.

The Raptors were left shorthanded in Game 1 with G Patrick McCaw away from the team due to personal reasons. What was surprising however was the fact that Brook Lopez had an even better offensive performance with 29 points, and a double double himself as he collected 11 rebounds. Exhausted legs also led to Milwaukee getting out on the break for 25 fast-break points, with most of those coming from Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe in the second half.

Toronto has no chance of winning this series if it receives that kind of production from its star player. In a battle of two of the best rebounding teams, the Bucks decisively won the boards late.
