Milwaukee, Wi – Tonight matched what is quickly becoming a Eastern Conference rivalry as the Milwaukee Bucks faced the Toronto Raptors. This game had all the making of a playoff type game and very well could be an Eastern Conference final preview. The Raptors came into town without All Star point guard Kyle Lowry who is still nursing an injury.
Toronto took control of this game in the 3rd quarter and was able to hold off a 4th quarter run from the Bucks and get a much needed win. Giannis’s 44 points and 18 rebounds was in a wasted effort and was not enough to lift Milwaukee to the win.
Milwaukee ends the home stand on Monday vs the Jazz at 7pm before heading to Houston before a Wednesday game against the red hot Rockets.
