Raptors vs Bucks Series Preview
The Bucks finished with the best record on the NBA and have home court advantage. Toronto finished right behind them in second place.
These two teams faced one another four times during the regular season and Milwaukee won three of the four meetings. Thus far the advantage is all Bucks.
As the Raptors proved against the Sixers, anything is possible. They fought through a seven-game series and won on a last-second game-winning shot by Kawhi Leonard at the buzzer. They’ve shown they have the willpower to win.
Milwaukee, despite their postseason inexperience, has Giannis Antetokounmpo who can take over any game at any time.
After losing the first game against the Celtics in an embarrassing manner, the Bucks with Giannis leading the way ran off four straight wins and earned several days of rest before the Eastern Conference Finals.
Will the Bucks be rusty after their time off or will the Raptors be tired after playing seven against Philly? We’ll find out by the end of Game 1 tonight.
