Raptors tie series up with 87-76 win

After their game three 104-point outburst the Milwaukee took a two steps back in game four. The adjustments from Toronto’s end could be seen as they held the Bucks to 37-percent shooting from the field (23.8-percent from three). The Bucks only managed to squeeze in 76 points in game four as well. Perhaps some of the “baby” of the Bucks showed itself in Saturday’s game as Giannis Antetokounmpo failed to lead all Bucks in scoring, assists and rebounds in the same game.

The second half was all Toronto as they stretch the lead to 11 points, which was the biggest of the game. Defensively, the Raptors forced 20 Milwaukee turnovers which is the most in a single game in this series so far. After his 0-of-8 performance in game three DeMar DeRozan bounced back with a 12-of-22 shooting performance for a game high 33 points. Five Raptors were able to score double-digits to support DeRozan’s offense.

In an up and down series the Raptors will head back to Toronto for game five where they will need to continue the defensive force. The talent and firepower lies on the Raptors side as the have two All-Stars in the backcourt. Should Dwane Casey have his team properly adjusted the Bucks will need to adjust accordingly on the offensive end.
