The Bucks outscored the Raptors when Antetokounmpo was on the floor but were outscored when he was on the bench. Some people were of the belief that the Raptors would make quick work of them and cruise past the first round but, after two games, it's clear Milwaukee deserves a whole lot more credit. It's going to be a battle, a war and we've got to go in with that mentality. After Saturday's thrilling win, last night's nail-biter generated a 7.80 rating.
"We didn't want it to be a wasted year and we didn't want to ship him somewhere", Kidd said prior to Game 2 in Toronto on Tuesday. They shot poorly and coach Kidd didn't do a great job with the rotations, but still lost by only two possessions.
The Toronto Raptors escaped Game 2 with a narrow 106-100 victory over the Bucks, sending the series to Milwaukee in a 1-1 tie.
Trump vows to back USA dairy farmers in Canada trade spat
Dykstra said the USA has increased its dairy exports to Canada by 17 per cent over the last few years. Governor Scott Walker is urging President Trump to address Canada's dairy trade restrictions.
In Game 2, the Bucks scored 10 fewer paint points. "I know Kyle will find his way back to his star status". "Every experienced team I've been around, on the road is where it shows up".
Fittingly, this series is all knotted up with Game 3 looming as that potentially series-altering tip, hoops history on the side of Thursday's victor. The over has cashed in each of the first two games of the series as well along with seven of 10 dating back to the regular season. DeRozan said he expects Lowry to contribute any way he can in Game 2, even if his shots aren't falling. It would also take some old-fashioned shot-making. The series can shift in Toronto's favour if Valanciunas plays consistently and efficiently. The Raptors did much better job of moving the ball and spacing the floor, obviously better prepared for what the Bucks have been trying to do.
"We still feel like we haven't gotten close to our potential", said P.J. Tucker, a guy getting his first taste of the playoffs at the age of 31 and loving what he is experiencing. Serge Ibaka, after reports he may not play due to a bum ankle, gave the Raptors a much-needed defensive presence at the rim and chipped in with jumpers on the offensive end.
Cavs assume 2-0 lead
James was unfazed by the Pacers' fourth-quarter fightback after the Cavs held on to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. He's gotta know at this point we need him to take it to the next level, and we'll continue to work with him.
"We'll be looking to bounce back tomorrow, knowing that just coming home is not going to get the job done. There are a couple of things we can do better at to make sure we do get bodies back and fly out and get to especially Tony Snell". "Hopefully, we can throw the first punch and keep the lead and keep building on it". Today's game should be a proper test of both team's mettle. Teams are going to take away your first option and probably your second option. But unlike Wiggins, the brief career of Parker has been star-crossed, twice felled by knee injuries.
"I think we definitely gained some things out of these two games", Antetokounmpo said.
It's never easy when operating in a small market, but the presence of the Greek Freak and money, obviously, may do the trick one day.
Facebook 'has a lot of work to do' admits Mark Zuckerberg
Police say 37-year-old Steve Stephens killed Robert Godwin in Cleveland, as the grandfather was walking home from an Easter meal. Godwin did not seem to recognize the name. "No, I don't want that man to die , I want him brought to justice", he said.
The next step for the franchise, as it moves forward, is to attract a free agent, not some average or above-average free agent, but a legitimate difference maker.
