Kyle Lowry show up in Game 4
The Eastern Conference Finals was rolling last night as the Toronto Raptors wanted to wash, rinse and repeat from their performance in Game 3 to try to even up the series 2 – 2 against the Milwaukee Bucks but needed a collective effort to do so. With 50 plus total minutes played in Game 3 for Pascal Siakim and Kawhi Leonard, they came out of the gate a little sluggish, but their teammates picked up what they could not put down and held down the fort after trailing 12 – 5 before finding their footing and led 32 – 31 after the 1st period. The Raptors went on 9 – 0 run to begin the 2nd with Serge Ibaka’s surging offense as he notched 10 of his 17 points in the 2nd and added multiple offensive and defensive rebounds as the Raptors led 65 – 55 at the half. With Kawhi scoring waaaaay below his average of 32 points per game during the playoffs compared to only 19 points last night, that collective effort came from Kyle Lowry with 25 points and 6 assists and Marc Gasol chipped in 17 along with a team high of 7 assists. Giannis Antetokounmpo had a much improved game than he had in Game 3 and put up a double-double with 25 points and 10 boards while Kris Middleton poured in 30, but it was the Raptors bench that put in yeoman’s work and outscored the Bucks bench 48 – 23 as the Raptors took care of business on their home court and knotted the series 2 – 2 with the 120 – 102 win.

For your NBA Quick News & Notes, the Portland Trail Blazers and head coach Terry Stotts have agreed to a multiyear contract extension as the team announced yesterday, but the team did not disclose terms and finally, the first five picks of the 2018 draft would make up the 2019 All-Rookie first team as Deandre Ayton of the Suns, Marvin Bagley III of the Kings, Luka Doncic of the Mavericks, Jaren Jackson Jr. of the Grizzlies and Trae Young of the Hawks all have been selected.
