You can say GSW are more fun to watch without KD but they are not stronger. Whoever thinks otherwise is mistaken. You don't give up on arguably the second best player in the NBA.

Lowry is a bit off from his Game 1 form. Leonard is also bottled up so far. Bucks 6th/7th guys Brogdon and Ilyasova are hot (26 combined of the team’s 51). Bucks by 17 at 5 minutes before half.

The Bucks hold Toronto to 39 points in the first half, 64-39. Bench scoring is 34-11, accounting for all but two points of the advantage.

Pathetic display from the raps tbh. I like Marc Gasol but man he’s been horrible in this series so far and Pascal Siakam still seems a bit too raw and inexperienced for the playoffs. Didn’t expect much from Lowry today after going off last game, and although Leonard was a beast like usual, its still a team game at the end of the day and the Bucks have simply been the much better team for the last 5 quarters of this series.

It seems like nothing has changed since Casey & DeRozan. Same pathetic game relying on one man offence and hoping they can make it up with some defense.

Love the Bucks. They look like a real team. They trust each other. When Ilyasova is open or wants the ball, no problem they give it it to him. Hope they win the whole thing.

Budenholzer pushing all the right buttons and that bench tandem of Brogdon and Ilyasova put the game out of reach with that dud of a first half from the Dinos.

Milwaukee will take their spotless road playoffs record into The 6ix and grab at least one of the two. Too deep for the Raptors to knot this up before going back to Brew City if necessary.

Six teams had Ilyasova between his original long stint with Milwaukee and his resigning with them before this season, including my Magic and @Ronaldo ’s Pistons...a true journeyman but he shows up and plays hard every night.

Gotta give props to the Warriors. Especially Steve Kerr. I thought he was just a regular coach, but he may go down as being one of the greatest basketball coaches ever if he can sustain excellence for another couple years. Just a complete guess with that one.

Kerr is extremely underrated as a coach due to who's on his team, but once they undergo adversity, such as what's happened in this playoffs, he's proving why he's one of the best in the business. His ability to adapt to different lineups/styles of play depending on who's available or not is top notch, and most of all, his insightful thinking to use his entire bench and get the best outta them in the x number of mins that they'll be out there playing is something that many coaches don't have the ability or guts to do.

Commentators say the double Euro step wasn't travel though. Maybe the refrees did the right by not seeing all Raptors players thought they saw lol.

Vanvleet simply isn’t a good performer. Even tho I think a lot of diehards overrate tf outta him, why not put in Jeremy Lin.
Too late I guess. I've been saying KL and VV are not reliable, why not mix Lin in and try to get the best out of the three pgs.

He is still being punished for once having a hairdo that puts Covfefe45 at #2 on the GOAT duck’s nest coifs:


Kenyon Martin didn’t complain about that one but he didn’t think Lin is black enough to do this:
