  • Raptors' Danny Green honours broadcasting legends prior to Game 4

And they now have some life off of what looked like a very shallow bench just 10 days ago.

The Toronto Raptors closed ranks around hurting star Kawhi Leonard, turning in a total team effort in a 120-102 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday to level the NBA Eastern Conference finals.

When a series is tied at 2-2, the victor of Game 5 wins the series over 80% of the time; the loser of Game 5 in this series isn't necessarily out on hope, but the task becomes increasingly harder when a team drops the pivotal game.

Early in that Philadelphia series, Toronto was better offensively when they didn't move the ball, because Leonard was so efficient shooting off the dribble and his teammates weren't shooting with any confidence.

"You know, Kawhi plays at his own pace, and sometimes, it's hard to know", Ibaka said.

Norman Powell scored 18 points, Serge Ibaka added 17 points and 13 rebounds and Fred Van Fleet chipped in with 13 points. And instead of the lead shrinking, it grew to 20 points before a pair of Khris Middleton buckets forced Nurse to call timeout with 7:23 to go.

The Raptors' bench has been criticized for their collective play throughout this postseason, but it was clear early on that they had showed up for Game 4. He limped away from the basket following a third-quarter dunk in Game 4, but still toughed it out for 34 minutes.

The Raptors' entire supporting cast been inconsistent in the playoffs, but their bench, in particular, has been downright bad at times. It was Ibaka who led the charge in that department, going "beast mode" while creating some huge second chance opportunities. Like I know I have to play better. Marc Gasol was efficient all night, stretching the floor and dabbling in a few buckets inside for 17 points.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals will be played May 30.

Toronto took control from the second quarter onwards and never looked back. Countering Milwaukee's inevitable pushback in Game 4 would go a long way to determining whether this turns into a series or a march to an inevitable ouster.

Milwaukee Bucks' All-Star guard, Giannis Antetokoumpo was limited to 25 points and 10 rebounds as the Bucks dropped a second successive game, for only the second time this season.

Despite a raucous home crowd at Scotiabank Arena, the Bucks struck first and with authority.

When we say that the fans were out in full force, we mean it.

The Bucks and Raptors take the court Tuesday night in Toronto for Game 4 of their seven-game series with Milwaukee holding a 2-1 edge.

The Bucks were down by just one point at the half, but then the game quickly unraveled for Milwaukee.

Toronto is now just two wins away from the franchise's first ever NBA Finals appearance...two more wins.
