Bucks overwhelm Raptors 104-77, take 2-1 series lead

Bucks overwhelm Raptors 104-77, take 2-1 series lead”

It happened in the Bucks' 104-77 rout of Toronto in Game 3, when defenders were drawn by Antetokounmpo's every move to open up room for teammates.

Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo dunks during the second half of game 3 of their NBA first-round playoff series basketball game against the Toronto Raptors Thursday, April 20, 2017, in Milwaukee.

It was ugly from the start.

It was all Bucks all the time as six Milwaukee players scored in double digits, led by 20 points from Khris Middleton.

"If you continue to trap and another team is making three balls, it would be prudent to stop doing it", Raptors coach Dwane Casey added. "They ambushed us, and there's no aspect of our game that we executed whatsoever".

Lowry, who finished with just four points in Game 1, had 22 on Tuesday, including the game-clinching step-back jumper with 8.9 seconds remaining to pull the Raptors even with the series shifting to Milwaukee for Games 3 and 4.

It's meant to both encourage political leaders to fund science and rely on scientific evidence when making policy decisions. While this focus is more recent, scientists have been studying the Earth's changing climate for a long, long time .

DeMar DeRozan leads the team in scoring at 27.3 while Jonas Valanciunas has taken care of the rebounding at 9.5 and Kyle Lowry got most assist per game at 7.

It was more of the same dominance in the second half, and Toronto's bench players came in to finish out the surreal evening. "Our challenge now is to just focus on the first possession in Game 3 and find a way to get a win". "We didn't come out with the sense of urgency that we needed".

The treatment and hospitality from the Bucks on Thursday night was anything but family-like, however. The Bucks hit 52.7 percent of their shots from the floor and knocked down 12 of 23 3-point attempts, finishing one 3-pointer shy of the franchise's playoff record.

The Raptors have the advantages of experience and talent over the six-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.

Toronto's starting unit made the grand total of four shots in the first half.

That set a tone for the Bucks, who fed off the sellout home crowd.

Milwaukee finally cooled off in the third, making only 6 of 14 shots, but the Raptors' offense couldn't shake out of its funk. Giannis Antetokounmpo had a statement performance as he finished with 28 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block, which resulted in a technical that was rightfully rescinded after further review from the league office.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis coach David Fizdale set the tone with his memorable rant about the officiating in Game 2, which led to a $30,000 fine by the National Basketball Association.

They won't have much time to regroup. We had some good looks at the end, but the ball didn't fall for us. "It was about tonight and showing that we have heart and showing that we have enough in the tank to show that we can win and give ourselves confidence and allow us to believe that we can make this a series". Whoever goes in has to go in and make a difference, and we didn't. They hounded Toronto's ball handlers, challenged nearly every shot and crashed the glass well, allowing only nine offensive rebounds, six of which came late in the fourth quarter when the game had always been decided.

"We'll be looking to bounce back at home here tomorrow", Jason Terry said, "knowing that just coming home is not going to get the job done".

A week ago at this time if Bucks fans were told they'd be headed back to Milwaukee tied with the Raptors 1-1, most people would be satisfied, if not thrilled. On the second one, DeRozan placed his crosscourt pass where even the long-armed Bucks couldn't get to it, so all DeMarre had to do was make the easy extra pass to the corner. "There's a definite buzz in the air surrounding the team and these playoffs, and we look forward to seeing even more Bucks gear in the air now, too".
