NBA Eastern Conference Finals: Bucks Vs. Raptors Game 4 Preview – Time Start, Channel, Stats, Odds
Following up Sunday’s NBA action with an equally entertaining game at Scotiabank Arena looks to be a difficult task for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Kawki Leonard and Co. tonight, as the Raptors and Bucks clash on the court once again.
Tuesday night’s contest will play sequel to a suspenseful Game 3, which felt sternly controlled by Toronto as the clock ticked away until Milwaukee chopped down Toronto’s lead, eventually tying the game in the closing seconds, just as they have time after time during their campaign this season. Despite Milwaukee’s late-game surge, they failed to add another playoff win to their collection as the Raptors walked away with their first series win by a score of 118–112 in double overtime. Leonard poured in 36 points, shooting 44% from the field, while Most Improved Player of the Year candidate Pascal Siakam made some noise in the scoring department as well, adding 25 points. Toronto’s defense payed dividends as well, forcing Antetokounmpo into his worst scoring performance this postseason as he tallied only 12 points. The potential league MVP’s supporting cast picked up the slack however, as six players joined the double-digit scoring club despite the loss. Tuesday’s game in Toronto will air at 8:30 p.m. EST on TNT.
