    I actually like how the Raptors match up with the Bucks better than they did against Philly. Should be able to use our smaller guards a bit more again. I say play Giannis one on one, let him try to score 60 to win. Stick close on the shooters. Raps in 5.

    The Bucks are hot but I think the Raptors stack up a little better against them than against the 76ers. If they can find a way to steal one in Milwaukee who knows how this goes.

    The officiating is my main concern. Even Kawhi getting slapped around is a no call. Come on NBA, you're fooling no one.

    I guess that original sked that was leaked by blake murphy or someone was fake news...no 3 day breaks!

    Will be key for Gasol to shoot when open from the top of the key.

    I think I like siakam on giannis and hope kawhi takes Middleton out of the game.

    wow....every other day for the whole series. Feel bad for the "just off a 7 games series" Raps but that's unbelievable for the fans. Is there any metric that tracks Toronto employee productivity over the next 2 weeks?

    The Bucks also allow a lot of open threes as part of their scheme, and don't have the ridiculous up-and-down-the-roster length that Philly did to bother our shooters. Throw in some regression on the open shots and the Raptors offence might get humming again.

    Also nice to have a bunch of options to throw at Giannis without worrying too much (Siakam and Kawhi, spot Serge minutes, OG if he gets healthy in this round for spot minutes as well, can even try Gasol on him for spurts and dare him to shoot). Play him one on one a lot. It's not quite as big a defensive advantage as the Raps have had in Gasol checking the best player the last two rounds, but it's not nothing either.

    Going to be a different type of series.. Bucks had the #1 defense in the league in the regular season, and will most likely have the regular season MVP. They have some size but not like Philly. Everybody (except for their MVP) can shoot though.. and they are going to shoot a lot.

    Raptors need to win one early on the road to take back HCA.

    So how do we match up with the Bucks? Do we have Siakam guarding Giannis like in the regular season? Start big with Serge/Gasol? Use more small ball and hope Fred has a better showing? Can Norm shut down Middleton again?

    Going from one tough series to another. Can't get complacent.
    Raps have the #1 post-season defense, and have shown that we can win without actually having a functioning offense. Heck, even Kawhi can be hugely inefficient and we can still grind out a W. Bucks haven't faced that kind of defense yet, so it will be interesting to see if their "other guys" can handle the pressure.
