2019 NBA Playoffs – Eastern Conference Finals
(0-1) Toronto Raptors vs. Milwaukee Bucks (1-0)
Toronto has to be disappointed with the outcome of game one but they did do somethings well in the loss. They can build off that for game two.
There were not many scenario where the secret to winning was Brook Lopez. That is what you have to love about the NBA Playoffs.
Toronto definitely had their chances in game one. On more than one occasions they held double-digit leads but alas they could not hang on for victory.
The most encouraging thing was that Kyle Lowry had his best game of the playoffs by far. He was not only shooting with confidence but he was making plays all over the court.
Kawhi Leonard had another 30 point game but it was pretty quiet overall. He just didn’t have those moments where he took over the whole game like he has in the first two series. They are going to need some more of that if they re going to win, especially on the road.
They are also going to need more from Pascal Siakam. He was far from a zero but at times it was obvious his confidence was not where they need him. With due respect it is the playoffs and there are no wimps allowed.
Toronto can get themselves right back into this series with a win. They did not play their best game and lose they just got beat late. It happens.
The Bucks won the opener but it can’t have happened the way they thought. Giannis was bottled up for the most part and they needed a monster game from Lopez. Can they count on that again? Probably not but they can find some other ways to win.
Giannis was not able to get much going in terms of shot making but he got his points from the line and creates lots of open looks. He is going to have to take a few floaters or something to stop things from bogging down inside. Also he needs to jump stop and not do everything with his back turns toward the basket.
The Bucks did not get much from their bench in game one. At home they should be able to get more from the likes of Pat Connaughton and George Hill. Those guys were money against Boston and could be difference makers in this series too.
