The Raptors finished a late drama with a 9-0 run, leaving the home crowd in disappointment.

DeMar Derozan had 32 points, four rebounds, three assists and five steals, while shooting 12 of 24 from the field and 8 of 9 from the #Free Throw Line. Kyle Lowry played a huge 44 minutes, as he scored 13 points, grabbed four rebounds and had four assists, while shooting 5 of 9 from the field. Lowry and Derozan were the only two players that scored in double-digits for the Raptors, as they scored half of all Toronto points. Serge Ibaka finished the game with seven points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes on the floor.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was exhausted

The Bucks were really struggling offensively, as they couldn't find a space to take an easy shot. Their shot selection was awful in the first 30 minutes of the game, but they found their rhythm in the final 17 minutes and almost completed one of the greatest comebacks in franchise history.

The Bucks missed nine free throws in the fourth quarter, what turned to be a main reason for their loss.

Giannis Antetokounmpo played a game-high 46 minutes, as he couldn't catch a break in the second half. Giannis scored 34 points and grabbed nine rebounds, while shooting 13 of 23 from the field and 7 of 13 from the free throw line. He missed some important free throws in the final quarter, but he looked really tired at that point. Khris Middleton added 19 points, four rebounds and five assists for the Bucks, while Matthew Dellavedova scored 12 points off the bench.

The Toronto Raptors will now face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference semifinals. The first game is on the schedule for Monday, at 7:00 pm in Cleveland.
