Lowry bounces back, Raptors edge Bucks to even series at 1-1

There is too much on the line for the Raptors not to come out all guns blazing, but this just feels like a few points too many to be giving this Bucks team after what I saw in Game 1.

Raptors: Ibaka started despite a sore left ankle sustained when he stepped on Antetokounmpo's foot in the third quarter of Game 1. He gave Milwaukee credit for playing a good defense, but Toronto is going to have to bounce back, play that defense, set a better game rhythm, pace, and control the ball better in the half court game. "I think we get down and we're still really relaxed and thinking we're just going to turn it on every single time".

Well when you have players like Russell Westbrook, and James Harden, (who are the top candidates for MVP) it makes it a little hard to compete.

Malcolm Brogdon added 16 points for the Bucks, Greg Monroe had 14 points and 15 rebounds, Tony Snell and Matthew Dellavedova added 11 points each, and Khris Middleton chipped in with 10 points and nine assists. "That's just basketball", said Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd. So, in the first round of Eastern conference, the Bucks leads 1-0 out of seven games.

Kyle Lowry may have confused some when he said he would just have to force some shots in Game 2 in order to be more aggressive as his teammates wanted.

The rule of thumb for Game 2, if you are a member of the Raptors, should be this: If you see open space in front of Antetokounmpo, quickly fill it. Fill it with your body, or throw someone else in front of him if you have to.

The two days between games were long and probably unnecessary, but they did give the Raptors plenty of time to address the Antetokounmpo factor and more importantly for Ibaka gave him time to heal. "We have to stay together, stay focused".

"We definitely gained a lot of things out of these two games", he said.

"They did a good job". "Our guy shoots it and Giannis closes out, you know he's going to take off, so if you are on the weak side you can't offensive rebound, you have to get back".

The Bucks outscored the Raptors 51-32 in the second half. When asked by the Canadian Press to elaborate, he simply said: "We'll see".

In just his second career playoff series, the All-Star shot 13-18 from the field and added eight rebounds and three assists.

"We've done everything and there is no consistent statistic or number or group", Casey said. Thomas got off a shot on four of those, which resulted in four points.

Three dead after Fresno, Calif. shooting
County government buildings were placed on lockdown during the shooting spree and residents were urged to shelter in place. Dyer defended that decision, saying that officers believed they were close to finding him.

"We had numerous situations where they were cracking us with screens, whether illegal or not", Casey said. Then as DeRozan fell away to the right of the basket, the Milwaukee Buck known as the Greek Freak celebrated to the left.

"We missed a lot of shots that we normally make", DeRozan said. "Communication, getting back on defence and being physical". "They had some leads and we came back".

The athletic rookie's high-energy play turned the game in the third quarter, sparking the Bucks to erase a six point deficit and take the lead. Antetokounmpo went for 28 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and one block in the Bucks' surprising domination of the Raptors in Toronto, dunking over anyone who dared attempt to impede his progress to the rim, and hitting an array of jumpers to boot. I have to play better.

If the young Bucks, who are making their first post-season appearance in two years, were feeling any playoff jitters, they showed none from the opening tip-off, finishing the first quarter with a 15-7 run to take a 30-22 lead into the second.
