      Im not good with strategy shit lol but the bucks handles were crazy it kept rap d on their heels big time and opened up easy 3s Maybe a lot of zone d will be used? The shooting slump seemed to start around the last matchup despute their solid offense if we just dropped some open shots we could have won. Make baskets/rebound/stay infront of your man - basic stuff

        lol. This is why Hoiberg got fired. He wasn't on board with Quit Tryin' for Zion.
        Bulls spent it all beating OKC on Friday when the Thunder decided defense was optional.

        Clips got smoked at home last night by a 9-man Miami team playing the second night of a back-to-back while the Clips had 2 or 3 days off. Heat went zone and completely shut down LA. 19-0 run in the fourth. Clips totally lost their composure.

        There's no easy wins....

          I think Kawhi & Giannis will somewhat cancel each other out tonight, and the game will be decided on how the rest of the starting unit for both teams (and their benches) will do.

          Even though we lost the last one, Serge dropped 30 on them while limiting Lopez to 9, so I'm sure they're gonna gang up on Serge big time, while trying to get Lopez to go off. So I think the key tonight will be for Lowry & Siakam (as well as the bench) to have a good showing, and we'll get the W.

            Projected Starters:

            Toronto Raptors - Ibaka, Siakam, Leonard, Green, Lowry
            Milwaukee Bucks - Lopez, Antetokounmpo, Middleton, Brogdon, Bledsoe


            Notes:
            • Last time out the Raptors lost to the Bucks 124-109
            • Neither Leonard or Antetokounmpo played in that game
            • Fred VanVleet was also out with a toe injury
            • Milwaukee and Toronto both lost their last games to the Warriors and Nets respectively
            • Milwaukee recently traded Henson and Dellavedova to the Cavaliers for George Hill and Sam Dekker. Not sure if either player will be available for the game against Toronto.
            • Milwaukee is 6-4 in their last 10 games, and is 4-5 on the Road
            • Toronto is 8-2 in their last 10 games, and is 11-3 at Home.
            • Currently the Bucks are 3.5 games from first and are sitting 3rd in the East behind Philadelphia.



            Let's go Raptors!
            That picture is sick!!

              Yeah I saw it was 17-0 at one point. Somehow we never seem to get these games. Lots of other upsets/odd outcomes tonight.
              Boston fans never saw that before either - largest margin of victory in franchise history.

                Other than Kawhi, the rest of the squad do not have any killer instincts, they just always let their foot off the gas when they start to feel comfortable.

                  Bucks have great depth, maybe better than the Raps. Coaching should be another key factor.

                    My god. No team should ever lose by more than 50. There should be a rule that if you lose by more than 50, you forefeit your chance at the #1 pick.
                    In fairness, didn't they beat OKC by 2 the night before?

                      Lowry is the X-Factor, if he gains his scoring punch back the Raps should be good. If not.. its going to be another frustrating night again.

                        X-factor might be the wrong term since Lowry is supposed to be one our franchise players. But that's absolutely true that Lowry is the key and he's a box of chocolates right now. A poor man's Alvin Williams isn't going to cut it. We need to have at least one guard step up as a consistent nightly scoring option (15 ppg +) and that guard is supposed to be Lowry. We're undefeated when he scores 15 pts or more.

                          Wow -- that's pretty telling.

                          Let's go, Kyle.

                            Calm down a bit with poor man's Alvin Williams. Alvin never let the league in assists.
                            Only one thing matters: We The Champs.

                              TBH, at times it feels like Lowry is trying to win the assist crown, instead of being aggressive and looking to score. That could be part of his problem. And I reference Alvin Williams in a good way, meaning that at least Lowry gives you the hard-nosed Philly hustle plays when he's not scoring or assisting. Unfortunately, that's not good enough for this team, this year.

                                Alvin had much better defence tho...
