I had not been watching the game, but how does Giannis have 10 FT attempts in the 3rd quarter?  I looked at his FTA at the half and he had 0.  Was it because the Raps were defending him well?  Was he not getting his usual superstar calls?  And why now has he been getting to the line so often?

They're defending him pretty well. He's seeing 2 or 3 guys at least the minute he gets into the paint. Their bigs (Gasol and Ibaka) are doing a good job of doubling.

Lowry might be a bit of a choker, but his off-ball movement this game has been really good. Looks like JJ Reddick

I see, TPs to both.  I'm not sure who I'd prefer to win, but I got the Bucks taking this series.

Clearly the Celtics would not have been able to contend with Toronto, let alone Milwaukee.

All of a sudden the raptors are playing like the Celtics.

Choking and letting 20-0 runs happen in the second half.

SEems like Lowry decided to actually show up tonight!

I don't think shaq was allowed to beat people off the block like giannis is allowed to. I honestly don't think I've ever seen a player just fly into the lane elbows out and not get called. It's like trying to stop one of those old trains with the cattle guard on the front.

Props to him for understanding that he's not presently an All-star who the offense runs through and buying into his role as the 3&D center the Bucks need.
