Lowry bounces back as Raptors even series with Bucks

22 April 2017, 12:53 | Andy Ferguson

Lowry proved his coach right. Maker hopes to throw another block party when Milwaukee visits the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of a first-round National Basketball Association playoff series. "The first game they allowed me to go in the paint a lot". "My teammates challenged me. and I got to the free-throw line nine times. Got aggressive early and then second half DeMar kind of got himself going". We just can't panic every time that a guy has a tough night. Antetokounmpo struggled a bit in terms of scoring, needing 24 shots to post a game-high 24 points, but he also contributed 15 rebounds, seven assists and two blocks. "I think we got the rotation".

Both of Toronto's All-Star guards were more trusting in Game 2. "We did the right things, we had the right plays".

"He's a heck of a player", DeRozan said of Antetokounmpo. "Once you get into the paint, they're all in there trying to get the ball, and you gotta kick out and we gotta make shots". The Raps' lead evaporated to just one point going into the fourth. However, he remained in the action and was arguably the Raptors' best player, finishing with 19 points and 11 rebounds.

He missed a crucial three-pointer inside the game's last two minutes to give the Bucks the lead. Down 1-0, he understood the stakes, knew what the Bucks were doing and and refused to let them take him out of his game.

Some of them had multiple up close looks as they basically forced the ball out of the Milwaukee Bucks' star's hands as often as humanly possible and were still life and death to contain Milwaukee's greatest talent. Toronto took a 55-52 lead into halftime. The Raptors did a better job of getting back on defense. You'd guess their two-point shooting will bounce back once they're in Milwaukee. Khris Middleton, like Lowry, shook off his poor performance on Saturday, but the Bucks couldn't pull ahead of the Raptors as the game wound down. Out of the dozens of players that have attempted at least 200 field goals from 1946-2017, Lowry almost sits in dead last with.379 shooting. Milwaukee missed four more shots after that. Lowry's jumper increased the lead to four points with 8.9 seconds to play.

Second Quarter also started with the Raptors rule.

There's a concern here for Toronto, a 28-13 team at home this season. In each game, the team with the home court advantage is looking to win their first game and swing back the series in their favor.

After thoroughly falling apart in the fourth quarter of Game 1, they were better down the stretch of Game 2, and when P.J. Tucker drilled a three-pointer with 9:12 left to play, it put Toronto up by 12 points. Toronto F Serge Ibaka was able to start Tuesday after missing practice Monday after suffering a sprained ankle in Game 1.

The game came down to the final two minutes, where the teams were tied at 100 apiece after a clutch Giannis three-pointer.
