Raps vs Bucks | Game 1@TangerineHoops Game Highlights
— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) May 16, 2019
The Raptors put forth a respectable effort in Game 1 but still came up short. Undoubtedly a large contribution of their success came off the backs of Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry. Leonard finished the night with 31 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 steals. Additionally, Leonard went 10-10 on free throws on the night. On the other hand, Lowry finished with 30 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal. Since these two made up for more than half of Toronto’s points on the night, it’s clear that the Raptors need their other stars to step up to the plate. After all, only one other player, Pascal Siakam, delivered more than double-digit points on the night. Comparatively Milwaukee had 5 players deliver more than 10 points on the night.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (31.8 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 3.5 apg), Pascal Siakam (20.3 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 2.5 apg), and Kyle Lowry (13.8 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 6.7 apg).
The Bucks get home court advantage once again in Game 2. Coming off a decisive win, it’s clear that Milwaukee are the ones with all the momentum. The Greek Freak had a monstrous outing, grabbing 14 rebounds on the night and delivering 24 points as well as 6 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocks. Surprisingly, Brook Lopez managed to outscore Giannis in Game 1. Moreover, Lopez would go on to finish the match with 29 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists and a whopping 4 blocks on the night. As some online NBA betting pundits have pointed out, the Bucks have quite a size advantage over Toronto. Testament to this are the team’s rebounds on the night, which saw Milwaukee heap in 60 rebounds while Toronto only snagged 46. Accordingly, the Raptors need to turn this figure around if they are to stand a chance against Milwaukee.
Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (27.1 ppg, 11.6 rpg, 4.6 apg), Khris Middleton (18.3 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 4.5 apg), and Eric Bledsoe (15.3 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 4.1 apg).
