Toronto Raptors threw away a golden chance of stealing the home court advantage as Milwaukee Bucks rallied late to beat Kawhi Leonard and Co. 108-100 at Fiserv Forum.

Raptors were dominant most of the game and should have closed out the game the way they played in the first three quarters. But their shooting dried up in the penultimate quarter, quite unexpectedly.

But the biggest shock was Raptors’ incapacity to make a field goal and 3 pointers late in the game with only Kyle Lowry converting 5 of his 7 field attempts and 3-of-4 of his perimeter shots, while his teammates were 0-for-15 from the field and 0-for-6 from 3 point range.

Even Kawhi Leonard struggled, though he still ended up with a game-high 31 points. The biggest disappointment surely was Marc Gasol and Danny Green. The duo had a lot of possession late in the game but failed to add anything to the scoring. Gasol was 2-for-7 from beyond the arc, and Green was 1-for-4.

Regular Season Record-
Milwaukee Bucks:
W-60, L-22
Toronto Raptors:
W-58, L-24

Players to watch out for: (Captain options)

Milwaukee Bucks:


Giannis Antetokounmpo –
Bucks’ MVP candidate who has set the whole league on fire this season. He is just 24 but is still drawing up the comparison with Russell Westbrook and Shaquille O’Neal.

He is a player who runs towards the defensive line, forcing the opponents to make mistakes while making a split second game-changing decision. Take a look at his stats for this season.

Numbers that matter:

  • Points Per Game:
    Regular Season – 27.7 (3rd best amongst all players this season.
    Playoffs (2019) – 31.8 (2nd best in the playoffs, behind only Kevin Durant)
    Against Toronto Raptors – 27.0
  • Assists Per Game:
    Regular Season – 5.9 (27th best amongst all players this season)
    Playoffs (2019) – 4.6 (20th best in the playoffs)
    Against Toronto Raptors – 5.0
  • Rebounds Per Game:
    Regular Season – 12.5 (6th on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 11.6 (3rd best in 2019 playoffs)

Points earned in the last five games: 60.8, 60, 60.8, 40.4, 53.8


Toronto Raptors:
Kawhi Leonard –
For all Raptors fans, he is the best ever player to come to North. Though the fans are driven by emotions, the fact that Raptors are in with a chance to make their first-ever finals appearance makes their claim valid.

Numbers that matter:

  • Points Per Game:
    Regular Season – 26.6 (Seventh best amongst all players this season)
    Playoffs (2019) – 23.5 (9th best in the playoffs)
    Against Milwaukee Bucks – 22.0
  • Assists Per Game:
    Regular Season – 3.3 (87th best on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 3.5 (38th best in the playoffs)
    Against Milwaukee Bucks – 4.0
  • Rebounds Per Game:
    Regular Season – 7.3 (50th best on the list)
    Playoffs (2019) – 8.5 (14th best)

Points earned in the last five games: 36.7, 46.8, 29.6, 37.1, 32.4

Combination: 1
PG: Eric Bledsoe, Kyle Lowry
SG: Malcolm Brogdon, Norman Powell
SF: Kawhi Leonard (C)
PF: Ersan Ilyasova, Pascal Siakam
C: Brook Lopez

Raptors should have won the first game, but their shooting went cold in the fourth quarter. We are backing the visitors to put in a  more solid performance in Game-2, and think that they should match the hosts in every department.

Kawhi Leonard is our captain and the reason being he is scoring heavily in the playoffs this season. In fact, he is racking up the 2nd best numbers in the playoffs. Even in the last game, he logged a game-high 31 points. With the Raptors facing a danger of 0-2 deficit, expect him to be on fire for this particular game.

If you are playing the Grand League, selecting both Giannis and Kawhi won’t be a good option as both the players carry huge value, and you have to adjust with other players to make way for both these giants.

We have gone with Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon from Bucks, as both these players are in good form. Expect them to hit the double-digit mark at least.

Pascal Siakam is a no brainer. He has been Raptors’ 2nd best player in the playoffs, averaging in the 20s.


Combination: 2
PG: George Hill
SG: Malcolm Brogdon, Norman Powell
SF: Khris Middleton
PF: Giannis Antetokounmpo (C), Pascal Siakam
C: Brook Lopez, Marc Gasol

Giannis Antetokounmpo is having a breakthrough season with the Bucks. He was the 3rd best offensive player in the regular season as he averaged 27.7 points per game, also logging 12.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists.

But he brings a whole lot of attributes to the game other than the scoring. He can rack up defensive rebounds and assists at an incredible pace.

Helping him in this team will be Malcolm Brogdon, Pascal Siakam, and Khris Middleton, all capable of touching the 20-point mark.

Milwaukee Bucks:

Injured – Donte DiVincenzo (heel injury) and Pau Gasol (foot injury) will both be missing the postseason for Bucks.
While DJ Wilson is listed as out for Game-2 of the Bucks’ Eastern Conference finals series against Raptors.
Questionable None at the moment.
Suspended – None.


Toronto Raptors:
Injured – OG Anunoby is out for Raptors.

Questionable – None.
Suspended – None.

MIL vs TOR Dream11 Teams (Starting Lineup; Probables):

  • Milwaukee Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo (F), Nikola Mirotic (F), Brook Lopez (C), Khris Middleton (G), Eric Bledsoe (G)
  • Toronto Raptors: Kawhi Leonard (F), Pascal Siakam (F), Marc Gasol (C), Kyle Lowry (G), Danny Green (G)


From the bench (Probables):

  • Milwaukee Bucks: Malcolm Brogdon, George Hill, Ersan Ilyasova, Pat Connaughton
  • Toronto Raptors: Serge Ibaka, Fred VanVleet, Norman Powell


Milwaukee Bucks are at home and will start the game as favorites.
