Raptors falter in 4th as Bucks come back to win opener

  • The Portland Trail Blazers face the Denver Nuggets in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals at Moda Center on Thursday

"I hope they destroy them", said Foster. Toronto backers will argue their club didn't have Kawhi Leonard in all of those contests.

For Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Bucks fans will pack downtown inside and outside of Fiserv Forum.

The Blazers are now down 0-1 in the series, with Game 2 set for Thursday.

The Warriors opened the Western Conference finals with a comfortable 116-94 victory in Game 1 at Oracle Arena. "We have to prepare for it and get ready to go".

"There was a generation when they stumbled through the wilderness, and a lot of fans lost interest", said Drew Olson, a longtime Milwaukee sports reporter who now hosts a sports talk radio show on 97.3's The Game. "They were making me play in a crowd so I thought they were successful at that in this first game".

During the four regular-season meetings between these two teams - three of which were won by the Bucks - Bledsoe was an absolute menace on the defensive end against Lowry.

"Sometimes I couldn't even get an attempt up, even if I was trying to force it, but they did a good job defensively".

The Bucks were solid in the 1980s, putting up several 50-win seasons behind stars like Sidney Moncrief, Marques Johnson and Junior Bridgeman before things got brutal in the '90s - six losing seasons, including four where they didn't win more than 30 games. The Bucks are an NBA-best 8-1 straight up and against the spread in the playoffs.

"It's a little different style that we're going to see", Nurse said.

"We've never had three teams actually in contention before simultaneously". Lowry's seven three-pointers were a season-high, a playoff career high and one off his career-high. "We're going to have to continue to grow and we're going to have to play better".

The club has seen its average points per game total drop from 114.4 in the regular season to 103.6 in the playoffs.

Leonard "can create a shot out of pretty much nothing", Gasol said.

Toronto, which used only seven players on Sunday, will not practice for a day, giving players some extra rest. Seth even blocked a couple of shots and they went in because he blocked them. Will a pumped-up Leonard derail the Bucks?

Evan Turner, who scored just 4 points in the first six games of the series, added 14 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter.

Here are three takeaways from Golden State's strong start to the series.

Curry tallied a game-high 36 points and knocked down nine three-pointers along the way.
