Milwaukee Bucks blow out Toronto Raptors for 2-1 series lead

He can also create his own offense.

Despite all the positives, the game was close most of the way. The fourth was the only quarter that Toronto outscored Milwaukee, but the Bucks were solid from start to finish, refusing to allow the Raptors a window to get back into the game. "Our goal was to keep the score low, and they only scored 77 points". The coach said he made his players aware of it and wants them to push the envelope themselves. Dwane Casey went a little deeper into the rotation, playing Delon Wright and Jakob Poeltl, and the young guys gave the team solid minutes.

With raucous fans wearing black Bucks giveaway T-shirts to match the players' uniforms, Milwaukee put on a dominating display of basketball worthy of the team's "Fear the Deer" slogan.

It's not a long journey to this largest city in the state of Wisconsin from Toronto, but it was hardly worth the trip for anyone paying to watch Thursday night's tilt in person or even those Toronto Raptors who played in it. He added six rebounds and two assists.

After game one Casey accused Dellavedova of setting illegal screens and DeRozan and Lowry lost their cool against the tough Australian.

Somehow, the postseason moment consistently gets on top of Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, who sits beside him tensely through this compulsory press appearance. What if the series is happening to them more than it's happening with them?

Vettel revving up with revived Ferrari
It is the first time Ferrari has won two of the first three races of the season since Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa in 2008. Vettel's 44th win lifted him to 68 points, with Hamilton second on 61.

If the Raptors' confidence took a wallop with the loss, Lowry wasn't saying so.

Another Aussie - Thon Maker, a 216cm tall 20-year-old who a year ago was in high school, has become a dynamic tandem with the Bucks' Greek 211cm-star, Giannis Antetokounmpo. Kidd is not afraid of mixing it up and trying out different combinations, it's just that those are not always to team's benefit. He averaged 15 points through the first two games. These two men jointly scored 45 points in their win and the series tied.

They will need better production out of Malcolm Brogdon, however. Overall, the Bucks are 42-40 against the over/under. "I still think we'll win the series".

In the Milwaukee market, according to the network, one rating point represents 8,868 households, meaning 69,170 households tuned in for Tuesday's game. Public has jumped on the small home jolly and pushed it up a bit, so we are looking at about -115 odds on the moneyline. By mid-way through the second quarter, Ibaka was using unnecessary elbows on box-outs of Antetokounmpo, in a thinly veiled attempt to redirect the game's emotional energy.

From the emergence of Giannis Antetokounmpo as an NBA All-Star to a return to the playoffs, this has been an important season for the Bucks.
