If Toronto evens this series up tonight and most would take that as a high probability because they're just protecting home court, however I believe down the stretch Leonard is simply more driven than the Greek Freak and if this goes the distance don't be surprised if the Raptors take this series.50%

As much as you may want to take Toronto in this one, this is impossible, for me atleast, to wager against - The Bucks are 22-1 Straight up coming off of a loss this year and 18-4 ATS in those games. The avg margin of victory is a staggering 16+! It doesn't help Toronto's odds that Leonard looked like he was in some serious pain throughout game 3.70%

Toronto was lucky to steal game 3 behind Leonard's heroics. But I think it's clear that the Bucks are the better team.50%

Bucks own the #1 offense and Toronto the #12 offense and both are very balanced attacks and I think we should see that on display once again with it being a pivotal game in the series. The over is 70% between these two teams this season and I'll follow the trends.60%

I think the Milwaukee Bucks are overall better team and I like them to win this series in 6 games. Despite shooting just 37.3 percent from the field, the Bucks still had chances to win game three and probably do if Antetokounmpo didn't foul out early in the second overtime. I don't see Kawhi having another performance like we saw in game 3. I'll lay the bucket with the better team.

Gotta take the Bucks here. This one should be close and for that I like the better, more balanced Bucks team to come out on top. There are a few things that they need to make adjustments on. First I'm going to look for Middleton and Bledsoe to have bounce-back games since it seems unlikely Hill and Brogdon will team up for 44 points for a second straight contest. Another thing the Bucks need is Nikola Mirotic shaking off his 1-for-7 effort from 3-point range from Game 3. There are a few other small adjustments they will make but what I am really counting on is this Raptors team starting to wear down. Leonard has done a bulk of the lifting on both ends of the ball and I think he is wearing thin. It sounds like Antetokounmpo already has ideas about the adjustments he is going to make if Leonard is his primary defender as well as the Bucks returning to the things in their halfcourt offense that made them successful as opposed to freelancing offensively.60%

It's not a sight seen very often at Scotiabank Centre but the Toronto Raptors are home underdogs for Game 4 vs the Milwaukee Bucks. The Raptors haven't been a home dog since March 2018 and are 6-2 SU and 5-3 ATS in eight home playoff games this year. They needed double overtime just to edge the Bucks in Game 3 and opened as 2.5-point dogs with a total of 216.Bucks vs Raptors Game Center. Original matchup: http://bit.ly/2wbq7uc
The Star: Game 4 is a test of character for Bucks, Raptors
It was one of the remarkable achievements by the NBA's best team during the regular season: En route to winning 60 games, the Milwaukee Bucks lost back-to-back games just once.
Blame the travails of a Western Conference road swing in which the Bucks played five games in eight days. Or blame a 1-for-13 shooting night from all-star swingman Khris Middleton. But two nights after the Bucks lost to the Utah Jazz back in March, they lost their second straight game to the lowly Phoenix Suns, at the time the worst team in the league. Duly chastened and the trip concluded, Milwaukee returned home and, after enjoying a couple of idle days to recuperate, drilled the Indiana Pacers by 19 points in their first game back from the road.
Raptors HQ: Tactical Issues: How will the Raptors and Bucks adjust in Game 4?
The Raptors came out swinging, but the Milwaukee Bucks just would not give up the game easily on Sunday night. What started as a fast-paced affair became a for the rest of the game. It was an intense battle of resilience, and the Raptors came out on top in Game 3.
Now, can the Raptors do it again to tie the series? For the Bucks, can they unlock all of their key players before the Raptors figure out how to handle the rest of Milwaukee's supporting cast?
The Bucks failed to get the trio of Eric Bledsoe-Khris Middleton-Giannis Antetokounmpo going -- and that's saying something.
Brew Hoop: Bucks vs. Raptors Game Four Preview: Hope for More from Milwaukee's Marquee Three
With game three officially in the rear view mirror, the Milwaukee Bucks hope to rebound and put a stranglehold on this series if they can pull out a game four win in Toronto.Bucks Update
Heavy is the heart that endures a double overtime playoff loss. That's felt like the attitude among Bucks fans, although many have maintained their confidence in the hometown team pulling this series out inevitably. Many will point towards the horrid shooting of their big three, with Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe combining to go 11-48 (22.
The Star: Kawhi vs. Giannis is the series for Raptors and Bucks
Giannis Antetokounmpo is a completely different sort of human, is what he is. The very best NBA players are almost always in that category. Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O'Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, the agile colossuses with soft hands. Michael Jordan, LeBron James: there was only one of each. Steph Curry might be the most relatively normal superlative player ever, and he's an incredible athlete. Him and the other greatest shooter in history, Steve Nash.
But Giannis feels like an evolutionary step, seven feet tall with endless arms and hands like dinner plates and agility and strength and a sense of how to play the game.
The Star: Siakam rebound could give Raptors second wind against Bucks
Forget, for a moment, about the two missed free throws. Yes, when Pascal Siakam stepped to the line with seven seconds remaining in regulation of Sunday's Game 3, there's no reason he shouldn't have drilled at least one of those freebies. He was a 79-per-cent free-throw shooter this season, which was better than the league average of 77 per cent. And yes, if Siakam would have sunk one or both of those free throws -- if he hadn't missed three of four from the line in the final 1:41 of Sunday's fourth quarter -- he might have spared his teammates the stress and strain of two overtimes.
Raptors HQ: Five thoughts on last night's Game 3: Raptors 118, Bucks 112 (2OT)
There's an old expression that if things were easy, they wouldn't be worth doing, and in that context, boy does last night's Raptors victory feel earned. Everything about these first three games against Milwaukee has felt like a struggle, and nothing more so than the final few minutes of regulation and the two overtime periods last night: with two key players fouled out, and with a hobbling Kawhi Leonard playing 50-plus minutes, the Raptors scratched and clawed and hung on... until finally, they had a lead when the buzzer sounded and they escaped with possibly their hardest-earned victory of this postseason.
Fansided: Milwaukee Bucks: Player grades from 118-112 Game 3 loss to the Toronto Raptors
The Milwaukee Bucks' bench mob showed up once more as the Bucks had 54 efficient points off the bench, but it was their starters who came up short as Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Nikola Mirotic shot 14-of-59 from the field and 11-of-20 from the free throw line and committed 17 turnovers collectively.
The Raptors took an early nine-point lead in the first quarter and, from then, the Bucks were fighting an uphill battle the entire game with both teams having scoring struggles.
The Bucks ultimately were down by seven at halftime with a score of 58-51.
