*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, on Saturday, March 18th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Sunday, March 19th.
Anthony Edwards who had appeared in every game missed the match in Toronto after spraining his ankle on Friday in Chicago.
While some teams (cough – Cavaliers) have benefited repeatedly by playing shorthanded starting units, Toronto has frequently been the team where stars return to the lineup.
Then again, given how Toronto is playing it might not have mattered if Antman played as the Raptors have seemingly hit their stride.
On offense, the Raptors score 112.8 points per game ranking 22nd while shooting 45.6% from the field and 33.9% from the perimeter ranking 26th and 27th respectively.
Meanwhile, defensively, the Raptors allow 112.1 points per game ranking sixth best with opponents shooting 49.2% from the field and 37.7% from deep ranking 28th and 29th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Otto Porter Jr., SF (OUT for season, — foot)
As the first official team to cement their playoff tickets and hold a 1.5 edge over the second-place Celtics if the Bucks drop a few games given the lack of urgency, it won’t be that surprising.
This squad is functioning on all pistons right now though so they might not want to take their foot off the gas and end up experiencing what the Celtics and Nuggets have recently been dealing with.
Opponents score the ninth-fewest points with the Bucks allowing 112.4 per game limiting opponents to 45.2% from the field and 34.9% from deep ranking second and sixth respectively.
Offensively, the Bucks score 116.2 points per game ranking ninth, while shooting 46.9% from the field and 36.6% from the perimeter ranking 20th and 11th in the latter two categories.
To summarize the injury report…
- Brook Lopez C (probable— ankle)
- Goran Dragic PG (OUT—knee)
- Jae Crowder SF (OUT— calf)
- Thanasis Antetokounmpo SF (OUT— personal)
- Grayson Allen SF (probable—foot)

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction:
It’s unlikely Toronto will be able to ascend to sixth with the Nets 4.5 games ahead of them but seventh (-2.5) and eighth (-0.5) are within their reach which would guarantee them two shots at securing a postseason berth.
Of all the teams Milwaukee could face initially, the Raptors would be the least desirable as Nick Nurse has demonstrated an ability to slow Antetokounmpo and their length is equal to the Bucks.
And while the Bucks would still likely win a first-round series versus the Raptors they’d fare better versus the Hawks, Heat, Bulls, or Wizards.
With that in mind, I wonder if Coach Bud would play a little chess here and take the loss knowing Toronto finishing higher could equate to them facing the Celts or 76ers first and thereby tiring them out instead (helping the Bucks).
Either way, I’ll take the points.
