(42-40) Milwaukee Bucks vs. Toronto Raptors (51-31)
The Toronto Raptors are 3-1 in their season series against the Milwaukee Bucks. But to be fair, the NBA playoffs are a totally different beast. So with that said, this is going to be a tough series between both teams. However, with Toronto being the more experienced team between the two, right now it’s seems like they’ll have the best shot at moving on to the next round.
Milwaukee is a young up incoming team that causes fits for opponents due to their length and athleticism. Whether we’re talking about Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton or Malcolm Brogdon.
The team just seems to have a ton of young talent at their disposal. But the Toronto Raptors are going to be a challenge for them to beat.
Milwaukee loves to get out in transition and score easy baskets. But during the postseason teams start to play more half-court oriented basketball.
That means the Bucks need to do a better job scoring at a slow pace.
A good idea for them would be to go to Greg Monroe more often then they usually do. Monroe is a load to handle out of the post, and Jonas Valanciunas isn’t the greatest interior defender.
So if Milwaukee can go to him early, they should have an easier time scoring. Because Toronto is going to shut down the paint, so the Bucks are going to need to find another way at getting off easy looks.
The Toronto Raptors are easily the more experienced team between the two. I mean this is a team that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals last year. So that just says how good they really are.
However, that doesn’t mean this is going to be a cake walk for them. The Bucks are a stingy defensive team that does a great job using their athleticism and length to disrupt the opposition.
So Toronto can’t take them lightly. If they hope to win they need to expose some holes in the Bucks defense. And that means going at rookie PG Malcolm Brogdon.
Kyle Lowry needs to continue to go at him all series if they hope to win. Because Brogdon is one of the younger guys on the team, it should be easier scoring on him due to the fact that this is going to be just his first playoff series.
Free Milwaukee Bucks vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Series Prediction:
Although the Milwaukee Bucks are a tough out, look for Toronto to come away victors. The Bucks are still a young inexperienced team, so look for Toronto to take advantage of that.
Milwaukee should earn themselves a game or two. But besides that, Toronto should easily make it into the second round.
