The Toronto Raptors defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 92-89 to advance to a second round matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Milwaukee trailed by as much as 25 points before tying the game late in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, the Bucks didn’t have enough left in the tank to extend the series.
DeMar DeRozan carried the Raptors offense with 32 points. Aside from Kyle Lowry’s 13 points, no other Raptor scored in double figures. Toronto will need to change that to contend with the Cavaliers high powered offense.
Giannis Antetokounmpo delivered 34 points to lead Milwaukee’s comeback but made an inexperienced mistake going for two instead of a game-tying three very late in the game.
