The Toronto Raptors Have taken a 3-2 Lead In the NBA Eastern Conference Finals after 105-99 Victory over the Milwaukee Bucks In Game Five On Thursday Night, and are on win away from making history in the 6ix, a Trip to the NBA Finals.
Kawhi Leonard Put it at Best, ” We Weathered The Storm Tonight”, And they Did And Leonard was the Leader with 35 Points,7 Rebounds and 9 Asist in the Game.
And Yes The Raptors Got Support form the Bench In the Name of Fred Vanvleet, How about 21 Points on 7-of-13 Shooting. He Was a Huge Help From The Bench.
Kyle Lowry, He Played BIG Tonight to, How About 17 Points and being 7-of-8 at the Free Throw Line Was What The Raptors Needed tonight.
Here’s My Take On the Toronto Raptors from Game 5.
The Raptors Played Hard tonight and Head Coach Nick Nurse Said it at Best, ” It Was a Hard Fought Win that We Needed. The Raptors Hit 18 Three Pointers and Kawhi Leonard Hit 6 of them and Assisted On Nine Others in Game 5. The Raptors Got Off to a Slow Start Tonight and Quickly Turned it around for this Big Win. They even Turned away a 14-2 Run From The Bucks To Win the Game on Thursday Night.
The Raptors Can Clinch the NBA East Crown On Saturday Night in Game 6 in Front Of their Home Fans. And Lookout If Kahwi Leonard Has Another Big Game, It’s Lights Out And they Will Play Golden State For the NBA World Championship.
What About the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bucks Big Man Giannis Antetokounmpo Had 24 Points Tonight In a Losing Effort and the Bucks Needed at Least 30 Points out of him Tonight to Have any Chance.
Eric Bledsoe Did Have 20 Points In this game in a Losing Effort and He Could Have Done More than What He Did.
Malcolm Brogdon, He Was The Player for the Bucks to Have a Double-Double In Game Five with 18 Points and 11 Rebounds, But Sadly For the Bucks it wasn’t enough.
Here’s My take On the Milwaukee Bucks From Game 5.
Bucks Head Coach Mike Budenholzer Said this to Reporters ” It’s a Race to Four and our team Will Make a Comeback.”
Well Right Now The Comeback Needs to Happen In Game Six. Think About this For a Moment. The Bucks Had a 2-0 Lead When the NBA East Finals Got Underway. Now they Find Themselves In a 3-2 Hole and they have to Go On the Road to Win Game Six Just to Force a Game Seven On Monday Night.
Now Here’s the Deal, The Milwaukee Bucks Have Lost Three Straight Games for the First Time All Season. You Want to talk about the Worst Timing In the World You Got It and the Bucks Have Not Played up to their Potential In the Last Three Games.
They Only Shot 32% Form Beyond the Arc. The Raptors Were Just Scoring At Will. I will Say this, The Bucks Got off to a Fast and Fantastic Start And They Couldn’t Finish The Job, Now There’s a Problem and I said it The Other Day And I will Repeat it One More Time.
This Series Is going Seven Games Because Right Now Both Teams Have Scored 546 Points Apiece In this NBA East Finals.
And it’s Very Simple, Game 6 Saturday Night in Toronto. If the Raptors Win they Will Face Golden State in the NBA Finals. If the Bucks Win We will Have Game 7 On Monday Night In Milwaukee.
It’s Just Plain and Simple Now.
