Toronto has now dropped eight consecutive playoff series openers. All-star point guard Kyle Lowry was terrible in the setback, missing all six 3-point attempts and tallying just four points. Lowry experienced major shooting issues in the postseason a year ago by finishing at 30.4 percent from downtown in 20 games. As a team, the Raptors shot 5-for-23 from long range in the tilt.
Antetokounmpo, Malcolm Brogdon and Greg Monroe carried the bulk of the scoring load for the young Bucks in the impressive win. The Greak Freak collected 27 points, while the rookie Brogdon posted 16 points off the bench and made four 3-pointers. Monroe was a beast in the paint, contributing 14 points and 15 rebounds.
These teams continue to play to the UNDER. In the last 11 meetings between the clubs, the UNDER is 9-2.
