    In my opinion, guarding Giannis is actually easier than guarding fast-moving forwards and guards. Giannis doesn't have any jumpers so all Kawhi has to do is stand in his position and be strong and smart with the feet and hands. On the other hand, Jimmy Butler would have been more difficult to guard as he stays out in the perimeter. Kawhi did an excellent job of trying to contain Giannis by staying strong in the position. The injury does affect Kawhi's offensive game in Game 4. We will see what Game 5 brings.

      Wrong if you were really watching Greek freak is not easy to guard your boy is great but he had lots of help the wall that waited for freak everytime every game was excellent game plan by Nurse and I don't understand why coach Bud refused to adjust. Congratulations Toronto on well earned series win

    Lol you think because he missed that free throw was because there was sweat ok good finger tips lololol... The man is scared... Game 4 proves this...

    Bucks game plan is to wear down kawhi... For a rookie team that's a horrible game plan...

    Kawhi has too much will in him... And he will beat the deer...

        Raptors have took less free throws than their opponents in the majority of their series this year.

          OMG, nurse comes out and says, 'I THINK he is okay!' His superstar has an injury and this fool THINKS he is okay. Has this so called coach EVER said anything definite? Every dam time he speaks, it is always I THINK!

          July 1 cannot come quickly enough so Kawhi can go and play with the Clippers and also play for a coach that knows what he is doing!

            Who was that ignorant reporter that asked Kawhi if he had ever played 52 minutes in a game? I loved Kawhi's answer, ' I am sure you know I haven't!' Good for him! If these stupid reporters are going to continually ask ignorant questions, why do the players have to be subjected to this kind of nonsense?

                Just need siakim and Gasol to keep producing on offense and the raptors could win in 6

                          Greg Kurer baaahaaa ur a simpleton.. Nothing u said even makes sense... u brought up James Harden the only other guy in a league of 450 players that gets away with travels.. also the only guy who travels more then Giannis, that’s not saying much...
                          they’ve played 4 games, Raptors lead 3/4 of 3 of the 4 games.. Raptors shud of won game 1 in Milwaukee but either way series is 2-2 and they figured out the one dimensional Giannis.. Raptors role players have under performed thus far but tonight showed who’s the better more experienced team...

                          Harden travel all the time travelling is not called in NBA and Toronto was hammering Giannis most was good defense but some were fouls and you clearly Don't know Basketball Giannis never played a day in his life until 16 years old pertty sure Kawhi was playing before that and until this year Giannis didn't have the help he needed or coaching , Kawhi played with HoF players who were surrounded by good supprting cast plus the best coach in the NBA who will also be HoF Pop is great , Kawhi is great yes but Giannis is still improving this year Giannis really took big steps jumper getting better He is more than just one demeional and his defense is GREAT Even SHITY NIGHT Still HAD 23 REBOUND 4 BL SHOTS And MADE IT DIFFICULT IN LANE NOTICE ALL THE JUMP SHOTS WHEN Giannis WAS IN And Kawhi Did CHARGE And When Giannis FOULED OUT You Notice ALL THE LANE OPENED UP Would OF LIKED to SEE Giannis FINISH game And SEE Who WINS IF Not For UNFORCED MISTAKES AT End OF Doubled OT Milwaukee wins 3-0 game one Toronto got schooled both teams battled all game Lowery played way above his playoff slef bucks took control in 4th shutdown Lowery and Leanderd when it mattered earned hard fought win Toronto didn't give game away Milwaukee took it So. Fear the deer. Milwaukee in 5 maybe 6 if Toronto has anything left.

                          Ralph Davis u did not address the clear TRAVEL’s by Giannis.. see a block/charge call can go both ways but a travel should be called every time.. Giannis can be game planned for cuz all he does he run full steam down the lane and either does a Euro Step or spins to his Left.. I’m not an NBA coach and even I know his scouting report.. If Giannis could shoot jumpers/3s and Free throws late in games then he would be much more “unstoppable”... Kawhi is a more complete player who can guard guys on the perimeter(most of the points being scored in the NBA these days are from the perimeter). Finals MVP, 2X Defensive player of the Year, 2X Champion.... Giannis can only wish he has had the career Kawhi has had and Giannis has been in the league for 6-7 years/ Kawhis only a few years older then him..

                          arent all the players playing similar minutes?...besides that, powell attacks the lane and danny green settles at the 3 point line, so we all know who should be starting. also, why not give jeremy lin as chance? van played like 30 mins and scored 3 points...my take away for toronto.

                            The Spurs doctors called it tendinopathy a chronic injury on his thigh. And Kawhi didnt like that diagnosis so he went to get a second opinion. Looks like the Spurs doctors were right. We all thought Kawhi was 100% but that type of injury will continue to bother him forever. Its actually quite sad.

                              T Will Kawhi is fine.. when u play as hard as he does yes bumps and bruises are a given. He’s prob getting massages & work done as we speak.. Raptors players will step up, They are due for a big game from Ibaka, Green & Lowry.

                              Refs treat Giannis like glass. They treat Kawhi like a man of steel. Foul calls and not called are ridiculous.

                                This situation, no foul calls, has been going on the entire season. Refs, reporters, social media, etc., are pissed because Kawhi plays in Canada! These ignorant fools would like Kawhi to play for the Lakers! This will NEVER happen. James is toxic, he is a narcissist, ego maniac, he creates problems everywhere he goes. Kawhi has no use for james' antics. Kawhi has also made it abundantly clear he will NOT play with James! These morons like smith, cow head, etc. cannot seem to understand this! On July 1, Kawhi will go to the Clippers to play for a coach that knows what he is doing!!

                                Luke Saucin Nah Kawhis been fouled all playoffs, for a superstar he’s gotten to the free Throw line the Least and he has a High usage rate. He’s starting to get some calls finally but still a big discrepancy.

                              the raptors starters only had one really bad game. the rest of the time they've always had a player that scored at least 25. this bull that these guys are talking is so disrespectful to how hard this team s battling. this s the con finals. one man didn't bring them there. did he do what he is supposed to do as the star? yes.


                              kyle lowry the other night had 30 and they said "Kawhi is carrying this team" lol. pascal get's 25 pts 1 block and 3 steals last night and they say Kawhi is carrying the team. must be shit playing hard like these guys are just to be snubbed like they didn't do anything.


                              AND GIANNIS COULDN'T PLAY WELL BECAUSE GASOL, PASCAL, KAWHI, AND GREEN STOPPED HIM. not because he just didn't play well. lol

So Toronto great job barely beating a Bucks team who played like shit when your team played great shit everyone showed up for ya tonight , Bucks win in 5 maybe 6 Milwaukee wont play this bad again even if Toronto plays well the rest of series Bucks will still win .Deal with it only team bucks have to worry about is Golden state that will be hard series has bucks fan Don't know who will win . Would be no shame in losing to G.S.

                                @Coach Garcia Dude, I'm a Kawhi fan. I'm not a hater. Did you even read the rest of comments before posting? The reason that the Raptors have been a laughing stock in the league and even called Lebronto at one point is that Raptors have been known to play well during the regular season and choke in the playoffs.


                                I'm not hating or making things up that just plain FACTS! Raptors probably would have choked in the first round if Kawhi wasn't there. It's like Toronto Raptors have turned into Toronto Cavaliers being led by Kawhi. The only thing that Raptor fans talk about is regular season performance because when it comes to playoffs, historically you guys have been the biggest chokers in the league.


                                Kawhi is my favorite player and has been my favorite player for a long time. If Kawhi wants to stay in Toronto, then it's his choice. If he wants to leave, then it's also his choice. I'm simply saying that if I was in his camp, I would advise going to a bigger market. Canada has around 37 million people and a large number of those people don't follow basketball. The U.S. has over 320 million people and a large number of those people follow basketball. Therefore, the US is a much bigger market. That's not hating, that's just facts!


                                Spurs could have offered Kawhi more money, but he still chose to leave, so 50 million more or less is not going to be the deciding factor for him.


                                Most of Raptor fans didn't even know who Kawhi was until this season. You keep saying that the West is tougher. Kawhi played in the West his entire career and he was regarded as a top 5 player while playing in the West. He will do well in the East or West. That's not going to be a deciding factor for him.


                                I can say that there's a 50/50 chance that Kawhi stays or leaves. I don't know, I just made that up just like you made that percentage up. At the end of the day, Kawhi will do what's best for Kawhi.

                                prazertv lmaoooo typical hater clippers are irrelevant

                                Raptors can offer him 50 millions extra

                                People seem to forget raptors finish 1st with the best record in the nba before kawhi came to Toronto

                                How can you say clippers got more media attention when Lakers are getting all the intention

                                Raptors are reppin an entire country no other nba team got the same attention

                                Kawhi a lowkey guy Los Angeles will not give you that

                                Toronto hockey team will always get the most pressure

                                I honestly feel the narrative of kawhi leaving media guys are pushing it too far

                                I feel its more 75/25 him staying at this point no matter how bad the raptors supporting cast are playing nobody is going to tell me clippers a better team LMAO

                                Disclaimer : raptors destroy warriors by 20 plus both games without kawhi

                                @sampson ireman Maybe instead of FACTS, you should have said OPINION! I could have taken you more seriously. Listen, I'm a Kawhi fan and I'm rooting for him to go deep in the playoffs, but some of you Raptors fans are simply beyond delusional. What is Nurse doing that is revolutionary other than play Kawhi at every position and ride him for as many minutes as possible? I'd go as far as saying that Nurse is the most predictable and inexperienced coach in these playoffs. Put this team in the hands of Rivers or any other decent coach and Raps would have beat Philly in less than 7 games and would be leading the series right now.


                                All you have to do is listen to Nurse in his press conferences and even a dunce can tell that half the time, Nurse sounds like he's not sure of himself. For you to say that someone like that is better than Doc Rivers kills what little shred of credibility you may have had to begin with, which honestly wasn't much at all. Your level of delusion is greater than any I've witnessed in the the Raptors fandom thus far.
