Milwaukee Bucks vs Toronto Raptors (By: Shlin85)
Toronto Raptors were pretty tired coming off that 7 game series against the Denver Nuggets while Bucks played only 5 games against Boston Celtics. But even that kind of tired Toronto that used every bit of their energy and Kawhi's goat buzzer beater in game 7, managed to keep this a close game and they were actually leading for full three quarters in the first game. Bucks won the last quarter with 32-17 once Toronto's tired legs finally started setting in, but that game was Toronto's to lose. Now Toronto stayed in Milwaukee for two days and they rested properly, today things should go their way.
Kawhi took only few shots in the last quarter, Kyle carried them with an all star performance and he will play better after than confident game one high scoring game, it was exactly what he needed to regain some of that lost confidence. If Siakam and Leonard can consistently play for four quarters and they should be after two day rest, Toronto could win this second game and tie the series to 1-1.
For me, Bucks are still overrated and they were basically exposed in game one but due to 108-100 final score nobody will remember that they lost first three quarters. I will and I opted out for Toronto in this second game. Raptors must steal one away game if they want to have a shot at the Warriors or else Bucks will defend their home court and finish this series in 6 or 7, this is their chance and we saw that it's more than possible in the first game with Raptors leading for three quarters before the fourth when they got tired.
