Lowry was 5 for 7 in the fourth - and his teammates were 0 for 15.
"We gave ourselves a chance to win on the road in an Eastern Conference final", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. "They outplayed us in that fourth quarter". The Raptors struggle to find even five positive contributors on most nights, whereas the Bucks got a shot in the arm from Ersan Ilyasova and Malcolm Brogdon off the bench. Made some big shots, made some big plays.
To start the game, Giannis went on an individual 6-0 run, using his size and length to beat the Raptors' rim protectors. When the quarter came to an end, Toronto held an 11-point advantage, 34-23.
Milwaukee was able to chip away at in the second. The Raptors fell to 8-1 in these playoffs when leading at halftime. Siakam ended the quarter on a buzzer-beating heave from near the logo, extending the lead back to seven.

Game 1 was by no means an offensive showcase, but both teams were evenly matched.
Those two overshadowed the game's stars, though Giannis Antetokounmpo (24 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, two steals, three blocks) and Kawhi Leonard (31 points on 10-of-26 shooting) were still quite good. The oft-criticized veteran point guard scored 30 points on a ridiculous efficiency of 10-of-15 from the field and 7-of-9 from beyond the arc while also grabbing eight rebounds. Milwaukee narrowed the gap in the second and third before winning the fourth 32-17 to claim a 108-100 victory in the series opener. Since 2005, teams that won the previous game despite connecting on 25% or less of their 3s have gone 62-57-4 against the spread in the playoffs.
