      This series could be 2 to 1 for the Raptors, game 1 was a steal.

      And that's the reason why I think game 1 was crucial, I want to see how the Bucks respond to adversity.

                  Uhhhhh I think the right headline for this is bucks bench carried them into 2 OT against Toronto starters lol

                    Milwaukee wins the next 2 easily. Toronto has ONE player and is not good enough to force 7 games in this series.

                      lol siakam died? foolish. norm powell and lowry also stepped up this series thus far which is more help than kawhi has had in round 2.

                        Bad game by giannis, good overall game by Toronto with home court energy. Question is for me, how long can kawhi keep this up? Long series against philly, now he’s playing like 95% minutes against the bucks. When is he just gonna run out of gas?

                              Fred Vanfleet is bad. And short. Don't know why he's getting so much run. He provides nothing on either side of the court. He doesn't even need to get ran off the 3pt line, he can get jogged off the 3pt line cuz he's so short. Can BARELY defend his position, much less interchanging him and lowry between the guard positions. Lin and McCaw at the very least can give you more defensive bodies. I can make an argument that they could possibly have positive effect on offense if done correctly. I don't understand Nurse with these rotations, even if they somehow make it to the finals, Kawhi will be dead.

                                Nurse has a conservative mindset. Rather dwell in known failure than chance of unknown success. He is also the definition of insanity.

                                Vanvleet can’t shoot to save his life right now but at least he doesn’t give the ball away any chance he gets.
                                And his defence is better

                              Nick Nurse did a pretty Terrible job last night with his Bench substitutions. WHY did Jeremy Lin not get ANY PT in GM3? WHERE was Serge Ibaka in GM3?

                              That's where Stef and Clay are so strong. The are always on the move and can score from multiple spots. And if they are double teamed. they pass to Draymond who scores or assists. Teams that play against Warriors are much more predictable.

                                @thomas Casterwell GS were good enough to win almost 2 championships before KD. Also look how well they have done in these last few games without KD. They are a very well balanced, well-coached team, & Splash Brothers always dangerous as scorers, passers or decoys.

                                My guy unlike you i watched GS before Kd.And teams focused on Klay and Steph. Dray wasn't really a threat. Both splash brothers would disappear.

                              This girl always trying to find something wrong with the raptors. She said that the raps gave it them all and only won in 2OT. Does she not remember that 2 most important players for the raptors got fouled out before the OT started??

                                Josh Aguilar Middleton has been struggling all series, giannis struggled cause nurse became smart and put kawhi on hin

                                Raptors should have closed out the bucks by a lot. They barely beat them and giannis had a bad game as well as middleton. They won't mess up with badly in game 4 which is why bucks win in 5 games

                                Shortest guy to guard Giannis, kinda redundant when you have a 7'3" wingspan

                                  Giannis is still taller and stronger and bigger. His wingspan helped but didn’t clear all the advantages Giannis has. Give the best defensive player some props fool. Fkin bias man

                                Greek Freak was also responsible for half of the Bucks turnovers all game. He was sloppy on possessions, and couldn't get the ball out from double teams. The Raps closed him out in the half court so he couldn't just barrel his way to the rim like he always does, and he was making some pretty erratic passes because he felt pressure in his face.
                                Raptors were shorthanded and desperate for a win on home court. I know they have the capacity to win again tomorrow, but if Nick Nurse doesn't put in the right line ups for specific matchups, this game will get ugly quickly. He has got to be a better head coach and make adjustments on the fly. I appreciate him riding with the same guys, but sometimes you have to know when it's time to pull the plug and let someone else get the start. Sit Danny Green, start Norman Powell.

                                  Just like to roast raptors. Remember Pascal missed two free throws it would have been over then if he put them in. And we were up by 10 a few times we didn't just beat them two players out fouls this women is stupid. . Powell needs to start and need more people playing.

                                    I swear VanVleet must have compromising pictures of Nurse. That bum been playing way too much for a guy playing like dogshit.

                                      I disagree with both Cris and Nick, in that Giannis is the best player on the floor, because clearly Kawhi is the best player on the floor, and Giannis isn't even close to his talents. Secondly, people forget Giannis is extremely young, he's barely legal age, and Milwaukee is basically depending on a kid to carry them. And one small footnote, looking into the eyes of Giannis, I felt the stage ws to big for him, and the crowd was truly getting next to him mentally, causing him to make so many mistakes. They also failed to mention that Giannis played limited minutes all season long, and that he was physically and mentally fatigued by the 4th quarter, and by the time overtime came, his tank was empty. In fact, before he fouled out, I said after he picked up his 4th foul, that he would foul out, and as the second overtime begin, I knew he was about to foul out due to mental and physical fatigue. People wanting to give him way to much credit, based on his talent level, not looking at the small details of his game. I expect Toronto to tie the series, and I truly don't think Giannis is ready for what Toronto will be throwing at him, the dude is still a kid, and his basketball IQ at this point inhis career is (average) at best, stay tuned.

                                        This is way to quick of a turnaround for him to bounce back and beat Toronto

                                      Danny Green and Fred Van Vleet went 2 for 20....you think that's normal for a 46% shooter and a guy whose nickname is 'Steady Freddy'....a progression to the mean next game is as close to a certainty as statistics get.

                                        Fred has shot 25.6% in 15 games. If he goes 3 for 11 instead of 1 for 11 in the next game, we should be happy.

                                      The Bucks weren’t trying to win too fast. Bucks whole idea was to have their bench break Kawhi heading into game 4 and 5. Game 4, Kawhi will grind hard and the raptors will be blown out because Kawhi will not have the energy to keep up on defense and offense. Giannis will be all over the raptors in game 4.

                                        Kawhi is a young black man full of a very strong dose of a good mix of very good dna no substitute for none and at all bottom line thanks jeo

                                      Giannis has no midrange game or Perimeter game at all. If it’s not in the paint offensively he’s limited. In reality he’s no difference from Simmons! Simmons is actually the more talented of the two imo he can’t shoot and Giannis can’t neither the only difference between them is that Giannis has a team built around him and Simmons is on a team built around Embid!

                                        Giannis has an amazing motor. Only few players have an outstanding motor on both ends and are even very skilled.
                                        Its more than 2k stats.

                                        Giannis still more effective in the paint, has better alertness and is slowing getting a 3-point shot in my opinion. Ultimately I agree. They aren't as far apart as people claim.

                                        I think Lin would he playing better than Van Fleet cuz he’s a shot chucker and forces to much passes. Even if Lin isn’t the greatest I think he can be better than FVV

                                          He is saying Giannis had not really been tested until this series, so his stats don't really account for much.

                                          It's no surprise we're talking about Giannis' "worst offensive game of the year" when Kawhi was the primary defender

                                            George Xanthopoulos wouldn’t have needed it if Siakam and Vanvleet no feet would hit their shots

                                            True, but the Bucks are still clearly the better team. Toronto managed to basically shut down Giannis and Middleton, and still needed double OT to win a game.

                                            Stop saying the Bucks starters played bad as if it was a fluke. Look at Toronto"s defensive numbers at home these entire playoffs. Number 1 or 2 in almost every category. This is how they've been winning despite shooting woes - defense. It ain't no fluke. It's the third round now and they've been doing it every game

                                            Funny seeing Bucks fans saying: Giannis had a bad game... Instead of, Kawhi really locked down our best player. Cause that's what really happened. Philadelphia said the same thing all series until they were sent packing. A dominant team who's been playing amazing all season & all playoffs doesn't suddenly start playing bad vs a good team. It's the other team's defence that makes them start playing bad so give credit where credit is due & acknowledge that the Raptors defence is as good as the stats show.

                                              YM VoltZz Well I guess the Bucks are not resilient after all. It’s the Raptors resiliency and experience that prevailed. I told you regular season don’t matter Raps had outstanding regular season and fell flat in the playoffs. The Bucks are on the same boat the Raps were in previous years. Now it’s over. RAPS WIN!

                                              YM VoltZz Now the Bucks lost 3 in a row going back to Toronto. As you can see resiliency in the regular season is different in the playoffs. The Celtics and Pistons didn’t really put the Bucks under pressure. The 76ers battled the Raps all the way to game 7. If the Bucks lose the series what I can see is that the Bucks are much like the Raps with Derozan, good regular team but not quite there yet.It’s gonna be tough to beat the Raptors in Drakeland. I think they finished off the Bucks on Saturday Game 7 in Milwaukee is not option. Raps will win the series.
