The Toronto Raptors have an option taken on a place in the great NBA finals. The Canadian team beat Thursday in the fifth race of the final battle in the Eastern Conference Milwaukee Bucks with a 105-99 and leads 3-2.
Toronto could count on a strong Kawhi Leonard, who is 35 points accounted for. Also Fred VanVleet (21 pts) and Kyle Lowry (17 pts) were well shot. For Milwaukee worth the 24 points from Giannis Antetokounmpo and the twenty points by Eric Bledsoe. The home team was however excellent out of the starting blocks shot and took a lead of 32-20, but that disadvantage was to the rest already reduced to 49-46. After a tussensprintje of Giannis Antetokokounmpo walked out the Bucks again to 63-51. It sufficed, however, is not. In the last quarter, the Raptors managed to complete the “Greek Freak” at tyres and they went still on and on the home side to a third consecutive victory.
Warriors without Durant
The sixth and possibly decisive party follows Saturday in Toronto. In the grand final awaits two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, that in the final battle in the west is easily debunked with Portland (4-0). Golden State should be at the start of that big final good as Kevin Durant to miss that out is with a kuitblessure.
