NBA Playoffs: Raptors Edge Bucks 118-112 In OT In Game 3 To Trail Series 2-1 [VIDEO]

After trailing 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Toronto Raptors bounced back Sunday night with a 118-112 double-overtime home victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard undoubtedly was the star of the night, playing masterful defense and scoring 36 points for Toronto in the win.

Milwaukee’s Khris Middleton sank a put-back of his own missed shot in the dying moments of regulation to send the game to overtime. The Raptors had compiled a double-digit lead early in the second half and at the beginning of the third quarter, after a first half in which both teams struggled, committing a plethora of fouls and turnovers.

Meanwhile, Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo had a rough night, finishing with 12 points on 5-for-16 shooting for the weakest scoring output thus far these playoffs.  The “Greek Freak” also went 0-for-3 from beyond the arc and 2-of-7 in free throw shooting. Leonard’s highlights included a massive dunk with three minutes left in double overtime that came after he sprinted nearly the entire length of the court.


Sunday’s game also marked Leonard’s fourth consecutive contest where he finished with at least 30 points.
