The Toronto Raptors seemed to pull out all the stops for this game one, yet the Milwaukee Bucks fought through a cold shooting evening from 3-point land to snag a win, 108-100. Milwaukee came out freezing cold from beyond the arc in the first quarter, trailing 34-23. The Bucks righted the ship somewhat in the second, finding their way to a little more consistency but still heading into halftime down 59-51. Pascal Siakam nailed a buzzer-beating triple at the end of three to give Toronto an 83-76 advantage. The Milwaukee Bucks finally saw their 3-pointers start to fall in the fourth quarter, with Brook Lopez carrying the team to victory with a herculean effort.

These are the two best teams with the two best players in the Eastern Conference. The Raptors are the most talented team Milwaukee has faced and Kawhi is playing incredible basketball at the moment. I think Toronto will win a game in Milwaukee, but I think the Bucks’ depth and the return of Brogdon will result in the Bucks winning this series in 6, though if it went 7, I wouldn’t be surprised either.t

The Raptors only had to win. They didn’t have to win with grace, or aplomb, or anything approaching beauty. They just had to have more points than the Philadelphia 76ers after 48 minutes of Game 7 action; the whole team could then bundle up their collective performance as one more memory. Even if the Raptors decided to all shoot terribly, even if it looked at times like they would never hit another three, even when Philly took the lead — especially then — none of it mattered, if they could hold on until the end.

The Milwaukee Bucks are one of two teams who have reached the Eastern Conference Finals. In five games, the Bucks have achieved this faster than any other team this season; the Golden State Warriors bested the Houston Rockets in six last night, and the series between the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers, as well as the Toronto Raptors and the Philadelphia 76ers, will conclude tomorrow.
