Milwaukee was both lucky and good to come away with a win and spread cover to start the Eastern Finals. Can Toronto turn the tide or are the Bucks going up 2-0?
If you are a Toronto fan or had a Raptors betting ticket at +6.5, as the late Chris Farley said in the movie – Tommy Boy – “That’s going to leave a mark.” For three quarters, Toronto was doing everything right. But this is the NBA, where most games are won and spreads are won and lost in the final 12 minutes and this one was no different.
Milwaukee was led by Brook Lopez’s 29 points and him rediscovering his long-range shooting stroke with three key three-pointers in the fourth period. It was an excruciating loss for Toronto, who had the game under control until they did not.
