Despite that, the 2019 NBA Playoffs have been one of the best in recent season.
Could coming off such an emotional experience after a hard series have been a factor in Game 1?
Milwaukee notched their sixth straight win in these playoffs and their sixth post-season victory by at least 20 points - tying an National Basketball Association record.
The Raptors got off to a strong start ending the first quarter 11 points ahead of the Bucks, the latter reduced the gap to eight points by the half-time interval. Even in that series, there are plenty of questions left to be answered, and even more for the Toronto Raptors and the Milwaukee Bucks. "I think it definitely gave the team a lot of energy". The Bucks lead 110-92 with just 4:40 to go in the contest.
"I didn't see it as open", Antetokounmpo said Thursday (per ESPN).
Malcolm Brogdon scored 15 and Nikola Mirotic had 13 for Milwaukee, which closed the game on a 10-0 run.Читайте также: Brazil's Neymar returns for Copa
"We're going to lose some games, and we're going to keep doing what we've been doing all year", Budenholzer said.
In the loss, Kawhi Leonard scored a game-high 31 points for the Toronto Raptors and he was just a rebound shy of a double-double. Lowry was 5 for 7 in the fourth - and his teammates were 0 for 15. We were playing uphill for about three quarters. "They outplayed us in that fourth quarter". "It would be interesting to see because, you know, obviously you don't want to get Kawhi in foul trouble either, so there's a risk there, but you know, Kawhi is experienced and tough and I mean, I can't wait to see what they're going to try and do". Brook Lopez and Marc Gasol are both big bruising centers that can clog the paint defensively and knock down the open three. "But we had our chance and we've got to learn from it". But, who they will play against is uncertain.
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 30 points, grabbed 17 rebounds and added five assists for the Bucks. They trailed Houston 55-37 on March 5.
Didn't matter. They stayed just close enough until they could finish with a serious kick.
The Raptors had won Game 7 Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers on Leonard's dramatic, series-clinching buzzer-beater.
It unraveled quickly from there.
"We get to go back home and protect our home court, like they did these last two games", Lowry said. "We were just a step too slow". And this team is now 10-1 with * a href="https://stats.nba.com/players/traditional/?sort=MIN&dir=-1&Season=2018-19&SeasonType=Playoffs&CF=GP*GE*4" target="stats" *Antetokounmpo ranking 40th in postseason minutes per game at 32.3.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
