Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors Start Time, NBA Playoff Odds

Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors Start Time, NBA Playoff Odds

Having performed well in Toronto in the series' two previous road games, the Bucks head back to Canada desperate to pick up a win to re-seize the initiative in the series and force the Raptors into a win or go home scenario when they return to Milwaukee on Thursday.

Game 6 from the BMO Harris Bradley Center is set for Thursday, with the Cleveland Cavaliers awaiting the series victor.

To make matters worse, Lowry's primary point guard backup, Cory Joseph, is clearly under the weather, perhaps explaining his poor play against the Bucks so far.

Norman Powell, starting for only the second time in the series, scored 25 points as the Toronto Raptors defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 118-93 Monday night to take a 3-2 lead in an Eastern Conference first-round playoff matchup.

The Raptors took a 15-point lead with 7:59 left in the third quarter when Powell hit a 3-pointer from the corner.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 30 points and nine rebounds. The team's medical staff had worked on Lowry's back before the morning shootaround, then sent him home to rest.

The Raps led 31-20 after the quarter. To that point the game was peppered with dominant Toronto moments. The Bucks only scored 16 points in the quarter, but 13 of them were from Antetokounmpo, from driving layups to dunks and floating jumpers.

Not to be outdone, Raptors All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan kept the high-flying act going in the second quarter with a coast-to-coast dunk that had everyone on their feet. Milwaukee chipped Toronto's 19-point lead down to nine. Early in the first quarter, he stole the ball off Antetokounmpo, was wrapped up by Malcolm Brogdon but managed to get the shot off for a three-point play.
