Basketball Insiders David Yapkowitz has the Toronto Raptors taking a 3-2 series lead over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night as head coach Dwane Casey has pressed all the right buttons.
Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey on the Bucks, “Every game is a different story, different opportunity for different people and we’ve got to come back because there’s a lot of things we can clean up from this game and I’m sure they’ll be making adjustments.”
“We got to forget the plays, forget everything and come out with energy,” Toronto Raptors Jonas Valanciunas said after losing to the Bucks. “Come out willing to play basketball, not Xs and Os, hard school basketball.”
Two corrections the Toronto Raptors made from game one resulted in this win. First they were able to free up Kyle Lowry and let him do what he does best and that’s shoot the basketball.

The gamesmanship has started in the Toronto Raptors-Milwaukee Bucks series and it only took just one game. Scrappy Matthew Dellavedova has been getting on the Raptors nerves.
Traditionally the Toronto Raptors do much better in game two’s of a playoff series and the first order of business Tuesday night will be to find a way to stop the Bucks “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo.
