These teams played a double overtime thriller in game three. It was not great basketball but it was tight as both teams had difficulty finding any offensive rhythm.
One thing that really stood out was the right whistle. I am looking for things to be a little looser in this one and for both teams to have an easier time putting the ball in the basket.
The Bucks are still leading the series but things might not be as easy as they looked in Milwaukee. They are in a real fight now with both teams a little bloodied.
No team has done as good a job defending Giannis as Toronto. He fouled out of the last game and didn’t even score 20 points, though he was a beast on the boards and generally played alright. Unless he makes some shots it is probably more of the same.
The question is who is going to step up in support with regularity. Khris Middleton is not having a great series and he is the most logical guy. Since he hasn’t been there they have been doing it by committee which is always the riskier approach.
Milwaukee needs more from its bigs from here on out. The trio of Brook Lopez, Niko Mirotic and Ersan Ilyasova only scored 28 points in the game three loss. Lopez had more than that in the game one win.
Milwaukee has to be feeling a little pressure now. The Finals are close but this is a group that is still mostly unproven.
The Raptors are back in it now. They had their moments in games one and two but the win in game three gives them a chance to take a breath. Unfortunately it took a couple of overtimes to get but they are going to have to figure out a way to power through.
Speaking of powering through that is a good way to describe the play of Kawhi Leonard. He had another huge game for the Raptors scoring 36 points. It is amazing how he is able to get the shots he wants. He needs to be a willing passer but at the same time he pretty much never takes a bad shot. They need another big game from him.
The return of Pascal Siakam was huge in game three too. 25 points, 11 rebounds and 3 steals are a pretty nice game and they are going to need more of the same in game four. Hopefully his energy level is truly boundless. Another guy who stepped up big is Norm Powell, he has 19 off the bench even though he fouled out. Someone off the bench has to play big and it could be him again.

Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
The Raptors were small favourites in game three and won yet somehow are small dogs in game four. I am not sure why.
If it is based on fatigue I am not buying the whole aging team theory. Guys like Lopez and George Hill and a couple others on the Bucks are not exactly spring chickens either.
4* Free NBA Playoff Betting Pick: Raptors +2.5
Getting the home team off a win and still desperate, plus the points, seems like a no-brainer in a pretty evenly matched series.
