Raptors forward Serge Ibaka game-time decision for Game 2 vs

He's a competitor. He's a fighter.

Game 3 is Thursday night in Milwaukee. Thomas played in Game 1 against Chicago, scoring a game-high 33 points, to go along with 6 assists and 5 rebounds.

Kyle Lowry has finished with an effective field goal percentage below 40 in 17 of his 32 career playoff games.

Turns out they know a thing or two. Part of that was a coaching change from the more defensively focused Frank Vogel to Nate McMillan, but part of it was personnel - when the Pacers were an elite defense they had a good defender in George Hill at the one, now there is Jeff Teague and it's a step back at a critical position. But the troublesome young Bucks just kept coming back, and Toronto went into the fourth quarter in front of a nervous Air Canada Centre crowd of 20,077 with a mere 84-83 lead.

"Some guys it takes a little longer to get their bones going and bodies moving", he said. "I thought Moose (Greg Monroe) did a great job on the pick-and-roll, knowing they were going to put him in the pick-and-roll and he was up for it (Saturday)". He threw it to Serge and Serge gave it to me. I knew there were five seconds on the shot clock and I wanted to get to my spot. He's going to get his share of points, but the Raps need to keep him closer to his season average of 22.9.

"It's on us", Casey said.

"We've got to have an automatic start and get out as soon as that ball goes up".

Bucks coach Jason Kidd continues to show faith in rookie Maker, starting him in both playoff games and leaving him on the court for the final minutes. "It's unbelievable how hard he's got those guys playing".

Ibaka sprained his ankle in the series opener Saturday.

Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo marked his arrival on the big stage in his second trip to the National Basketball Association postseason, and now he's looking for more.

The study also found that the depreciation suffered by iPhone models is lower with each iteration of the devices. Samsung fans seem so excited, but the foldable phones probably would not hit the mass market until the year 2019.

Milwaukee Bucks Lineups: PG - Malcolm Brogdon, SG - Khris Middleton, SF - Tony Snell, PF - Giannis Antetokounmpo, C - Thon Maker. Middleton bumped the lead to 14 with a floating jumper. Boston's early rebounding edge evaporated just as fast, with all five Bulls starters grabbing an offensive rebound in the first six minutes of action. Toronto led 55-52 at the break.

In Raptors team, the DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points and 8 rebounds.

Over the last two seasons, playoffs included, the Raptors have led after the first six minutes of the first quarter 78 times and trailed after the first six minutes 94 times. He also floored DeRozan late in the second quarter, collecting a foul to deny a dunk.

Butler added eight rebounds and eight assists. The Bucks beat the Raptors on March 4 to end a seven-game losing streak against Toronto.

DeRozan joked that Toronto is like a vintage vehicle whose engine needs a little time to warm up before it starts humming.

Toronto has never won a Game 1 in the opening round.

The Raptors' win, in Toronto, also squares their series 1-1, with game three in Milwaukee on Friday (AEST).

Kyle Lowry, playing just his fifth game after missing 21 with a wrist injury, had just four points on 2-for-11 shooting.

The Bucks travelled to the Toronto to meet the Raptors in the second game of the postseason.

Milwaukee leads this series 1-0 after picking up a road win this weekend in Toronto. Second-year forward Bobby Portis' 19 points in the opener led Bulls' young reserves, who outscored their Boston counterparts 35-22.
