    Default Game #16: Toronto Raptors 105 - Milwaukee Bucks 99

    vs

    Projected Starters

    Toronto
    PG - Kyle Lowry
    SG - Demar Derozan
    SF - Demarre Carroll
    PF - Luis Scola
    C - Jonas Valanciunas

    Milwaukee
    PG - Tony Snell
    SG - Matthew Dellavedova
    SF - Giannis Antetokounmpo
    PF - Jabari Parker
    C - Miles Plumlee.

    Last Meeting:
    GAME 66 - March 15, 2016 TORONTO 107, MILWAUKEE 89

    Even though leading scorer DeMar DeRozan was given the night off, Kyle Lowry made sure they had little trouble with Milwaukee. Lowry had 25 points and 11 assists, and rookie Norman Powell scored a season-high 17 in a 107-89 victory over the Bucks on Tuesday. Bismack Biyombo, starting for injured center Jonas Valanciunas, had 12 points, 13 rebounds and two big blocks in the decisive third quarter, when Milwaukee missed 16 of 22 shots. Toronto led 81-66 after three, allowing coach Dwane Casey to rest Lowry in the fourth. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 18 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists in 35 minutes for Milwaukee, just missing a triple-double DeRozan, who averages 23.8 points per game, was in uniform but didn't play after starting each of the team's first 65 games and playing 39 minutes in a loss to Chicago on Monday night. Valanciunas was held out as a precaution after bruising his left hand against the Bulls.
    Lowry made five of nine shots from the field and 11 of 13 free throws as Toronto won for the fourth time in five games. Toronto won all four games in the season series and swept the Bucks.


    Noteworthy:

    - The Toronto Raptors are averaging 108.5 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 105.3 points on 45.8 percent shooting.
    - DeMar DeRozan is averaging 30.5 points and 5.2 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 19.7 points and 7.3 assists.
    - Jonas Valanciunas is the third double-digit scorer and Terrence Ross is grabbing 2.2 rebounds.
    - The Toronto Raptors are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 81 percent from the free throw line.
    - The Toronto Raptors are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.8 rebounds per game.
    - The Toronto Raptors have split their last six road games.
    - The rail-thin, multi-faceted Bucks guard is a long seven-footer who often acts as the team’s primary ball-handler. DeRozan and, likely, DeMarre Carroll as well will have to worry about stopping him in transition.
    - The Bucks have been idle since beating Orlando on Monday night.
    - This wraps up a five-game road trip for Toronto
    - The Raptors want to get back to holding opponents under 100 points. Although the Rockets scored 102 points on Wednesday, Toronto was able to limit them to 45 percent shooting.
    - Milwaukee is 23rd in the league in points per game, averaging 102.6 points per contest. After giving up 100+ points in their previous nine games, Toronto will be looking to build on the defensive performance they showed in the Rockets win.

    Bucks love going small.. I believe Henson is their starting Center, and Plumlee comes off the bench, while Monroe barely plays much. JV should be able to feast if that's the case.. however I could see him getting about 18-20 minutes like he has against other teams that play small.

    Maybe Scola is part of the winning streak formula?

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    The good news is, even when the Bucks play small (with Henson, etc) they can't shoot to save their lives. So JV should in theory be able to bully them inside AND stay on the court. Here's hoping.

    Playing smart makes this a win - attack mismatches, play slow, execute pick plays. Make the easy pass - no long passes across the court, their defenders are too long.

    Playing sloppy, giving them turnovers and bad shots to work off of, and being lazy on the defensive glass means a loss.

    Still remember that first game against Milwaukee in 14/15. Bruno hit a couple of 3's. Fields even got involved. Lou was classic Lou. We won by 40. Was a magical game.

    He got 30 plus minutes vs Houston even if Houston played small most of the night. They started the undersized Capella and then brought in Nene for about 5 minutes then went small again with the mentally challenged as well as undersized Montrezl Harrell then went back to Capella..

    DC like most coaches will likely stay with the winning lineup and we should JV get 26 to 30 minutes depending on fouls, if he is on etc..

    I think you get your money's worth...
    Henson starts as often as Plumlee and both are undersized as 5's compared to JV.. especially Henson.
    Val seems to have stopped trying to be a finesse guy in the last few outings and is playing more of a power game as he should considering he is 7 foot and close to 265-270. He should crush and powder Henson who goes 230 and Plumlee who might be 250.
    If they bring in Monroe ...defense is something he has heard of.

    I am guessing JV's currnet weight... Seems you stay with the weight you are listed at in your first year. He looks in that range.
