The Milwaukee Bucks come into their first round series with the Toronto Raptors as underdogs, but what do they have to do to cause an upset?

The Milwaukee Bucks overcame a lot to get into the playoffs this year.

Injuries took out some of their biggest stars, they had one of their coldest stretches since Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s rookie season, and at times they still seemed to be unsure as to who would play on a nightly basis.
