NBA: Toronto Raptors - Milwaukee Bucks
- Title : NBA: Toronto Raptors - Milwaukee Bucks
To beat Milwaukee you have to keep things close and beat them late. They sometimes struggle with shot selection late in games and Giannis can get frustrated. No Siakam takes away a big scoring threat from Toronto and unlike at the PG position, replacing it is much more difficult. Milwaukee is a strong team for sure, but they are also getting Toronto at the right time. Take Milwaukee here
This is only the Bucks' second game in a week, and they face a Raptors team that is banged up. Pascal Siakam (knee, groin) could miss his third straight game, and Kyle Lowry shot 2 of 11 in his first game back from a toe injury Monday. Toronto is playing its third game in four nights, and fourth game in six nights. This is a good one so lay it.
Get ready for fouls, fouls and more fouls.
Giannis Antetokounmpo will live at the free throw line against a Raptors team averaging 22 fouls for each game. Being a particularly forceful cautious group has cost them now and again this season, and they'll stumble into difficulty when attempting to shield the crate from "The Greek Freak" and different Bucks players.
The edge for period is additionally so little for the Raptors in this game considering they'll be confronting the alliance's No. 1-positioned scoring offense. Toronto has battled throughout the season in all out attack mode end of the floor, and they may in any case be without their second-driving scorer, Pascal Siakam. So they obviously don't have the pieces to endure a firefight with the Bucks. That stores everything on them closing down an offense averaging 120.1 points per game.
Unless Kawhi Leonard is strolling once again into the Raptors' storage space on Wednesday, they'll get moved by Antetokounmpo and friends. I'm taking the Bucks to cover the spread.
