The Milwaukee Bucks match up with the Toronto Raptors again on Tuesday after beating them down in Game 1 on Saturday evening.
The Milwaukee Bucks took care of business on Saturday to kick off their postseason. The Toronto Raptors may be a historically bad Game 1 team, but regardless of that the Bucks played well and definitely earned a victory to start the series.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was outstanding, and is being hailed universally as one of the best players in the entire NBA at the ripe age of 22. Other players like Greg Monroe, Malcolm Brogdon and Thon Maker stepped up in noticeable ways as well.
Still, as great as that win was, it was just Game 1 of a seven-game series. Milwaukee can’t afford to let off the gas now, especially against an opponent who took the Cleveland Cavaliers to six games in the Eastern Conference Finals last season.
Toronto is an experienced team, and now a motivated one after spending most of the time between Saturday and Monday complaining about various things that happened during Game 1. The Bucks will have to be ready for the Raps to come out strong in front of their home fans on Tuesday night.
To see how either Milwaukee or Toronto could take the second game of this first-round series, major keys for both teams will be examined. After that it’s time to focus on a Raptor, followed by some score predictions from the Behind the Buck Pass staff.
