Whew! Raptors blow 25-point lead, but beat Bucks 92-89

Whew! Raptors blow 25-point lead, but beat Bucks 92-89

The Raptors led by as many as 25 in the third quarter before Milwaukee finally got their act together.

Toronto's DeMar DeRozan puts the finishing touch on a first-half. Reversing the ball from one side of the floor to another-a critical counter to Milwaukee's choice defense-seemed second nature to the Raptors in the first 30 minutes.

The dates for Games 5-7 will be determined at a later time.

Kidd chose to stuck with the same starting five and lineup combinations he's gone with all series. Terrence Ross has been gone for how long? He played 47 of 48 minutes. The 15th overall pick was a relative unknown and figured, at the outset, to be a draft-and-develop pick. "It is tough, people are hungry, they want to win".

My third year coach Kidd coming in, we knew there was going to be some stability. Powell has played hard since his first summer league game and hasn't stopped. Noah had surgery on his other shoulder last season.

Toronto led by six when Serge Ibaka drew his fourth foul, but a 14-0 Milwaukee run capped off by Terry's wide-open 3.

No, that was just the first test and as it turned out the much lighter one than they would face in the fourth quarter. He was by far the best Raptor in this game, scoring 32 points on 12-for-24 shooting from the field and 8-for-9 from the free throw line, while adding four boards, three assists, and five steals.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Toronto Raptors keep getting themselves into tough situations in the playoffs. They have won the opening round in six games, but aren't close to being ready for their next opponent, a juggernaut named the Cleveland Cavaliers. DeRozan is having a career year and it's carried over into the playoffs.

Why do non-Raptor basketball fans chant United States of America when their team plays the Raptors? Rarely do we see professional athletes - especially in the rest-conscious National Basketball Association - at their absolute most exhausted, looking truly human. It's extremely disrespectful and doesn't make a lot of sense considering the majority of the Raptors players are American. Their offense for most of the game thereafter played lobotomized, dwelling on just the kind of straightforward isolation that the Bucks are engineered to devour. Fans were filled with horror, however, when an apparent mother-son pair appeared on the jumbotron during the segment at Thursday's game.

The Raptors now have the challenge of taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers. So maybe this is the Raptors second chance? "That gets you ready for anybody you are going to play", Popovich said.

Kyle Lowry is still a big question mark; he finished with 13 points and four assists in 44 minutes. There is no guarantee any or all will be back. But how they folded was even more mind-boggling.

In the absence of a defensive pulse, James' predictable channeling of Playoff LeBron Mode offers hope for the Cavs. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo.
