The Milwaukee Bucks were able to pull out the upset win over the Toronto Raptors in their last game, winning it 97-83. But now Toronto looks to even out the series as they get one more chance to pull out the win in front of their home crowd.
The Milwaukee Bucks were able to get the win in the first game, and it all came down to their defensive efforts.
Milwaukee held Toronto to just 36% shooting from the field, and 21.7% shooting from deep.
Those terrible shooting percentages were the reason why Milwaukee was able to pull away ahead. However, now they need to be ready to do it again if they hope to go up 2-0 in the series.
Toronto is the better offensive team, so the Bucks need to continue containing them in order to come out with another win.
That means stopping Lowry and DeRozan needs to continue to be a priority.
Last outing they held Lowry to just 2-11 shooting (4 points), because of that they were able to come away victors. Now next outing they need to do the same thing if they hope to earn another “W”.
Because the Raptors rely on Lowry and DeRozan to keep the offense running smoothly. But if they Bucks can stop one of them, they essentially stop the whole Raptors offense from getting much going.
The Toronto Raptors took an “L” in their first meeting against the Milwaukee Bucks. But that wouldn’t have been the case had it not been for Lowry’s terrible play.
Kyle shot just 2 of 11 from the field, and he scored only 4 points on the night. That’s just unacceptable if the team hopes on advancing on to the next round.
So if the Raptors can get some more production out of him, they should have a better chance at coming away with the win. Because without Lowry playing at a high level, the team really doesn’t have a chance.
That means they’re going to need him to step up next game. I mean he has a rookie defending him, so he shouldn’t have that much trouble scoring through the rest of the series.
So if Toronto hopes to win Tuesday, they’ll need Lowry to be ready to bring for 48 minutes of action. If he can do that for them, they’ll easily tie this series up at 1 game apiece.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Toronto -7.5
Toronto has a lot to lose if they don’t come out victors in this game. So for that reason, I think they’ll get the win by 7.5 points or more, due to the fact that they have their backs up against the wall.
