    Performance tracker: odds of Raptors winning game = 69% (nice)

    Fun facts:

    This may be a game that comes down to who turns it over less. The Raptors and the Bucks rank 1st and 2nd respectively in points off turnovers per 100 possessions (20.6 vs 18.8). The good sign? Raptors are 2nd in the league in preventing points off of turnovers for their opponents, while Bucks rank 13th.

    The Bucks are a solid defensive team, ranking 10th in defensive rating. They also score decently, with the 14th ranked offence.

    The Bucks are actually a thoroughly average team in many respects. Of the 4 key factors of winning in basketball (at each end, eFG%, FTA rate, OREB% and TOV%), they rank between 11th and 20th league wide in: FTA rate, OREB%, TOV%, opponent FTA rate, opponent TOV%, and opponent OREB%. And 10th in eFG%, 5th in opponent FG%. Thoroughly average, but with very good FG% defence.

    Last time out: Raptors won a close one 105-99, on the strength of good games from most of the Raptors' starters. The Bucks' offence basically came down to an incredibly efficient and productive Giannis, and, somehow, high volume efficient long distance shooting from Tony Snell of all people.
