Siakam’s Game 1 Performance Lifts Raptors over Warriors

Heading into Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors, the main focus was if Golden State can win three titles in a row and if Kawhi Leonard could continue to play at a high level for them. Well, Raptors forward Pascal Siakam wants to be included in the conversation as well because he scored 32 points on 82.4 percent shooting from the field in his NBA Finals debut and it was one of the reasons why Toronto won Game 1 over the Warriors 118-109. It was their first NBA Finals win in franchise history.

Siakam also grabbed eight rebounds, recorded five assists, blocked two shots, and recorded one steal.

Kawhi Leonard scored 23 points for the Raptors, but he only shot 35.7 percent from the field. Leonard also grabbed eight rebounds, recorded five assists, and recorded one steal.

Golden State’s defense double teamed him a lot, but it left other shooters wide open like Marc Gasol.

Gasol took advantage of his open opportunities in Game 1. He grabbed seven rebounds, recorded one assist, blocked one shot, and recorded two steals.

It also appeared as if Danny Green has reverted back to his old NBA Finals ways when he was playing with the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of this NBA Finals series. Green scored 11 points and knocked down three 3-pointers.

Kyle Lowry only scored seven points on 22.2 percent shooting from the field, but he was tough in other aspects of the game. Lowry drew a couple of charges and played tough defense. He also grabbed six rebounds, recorded nine assists, and recorded one steal.

Toronto’s bench scored 25 points and Fred VanVleet scored 15 of them on 62.5 percent shooting from the field. He picked up right where he left off in the last series in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks.

VanVleet continues to give the Toronto Raptors quality minutes off the bench.

Steph Curry was by far Golden State’s best player in Game 1. He scored 34 points on 44.4 percent shooting from the field. Curry made all 14 of his free throws. He also grabbed five rebounds, recorded five assists, and recorded one steal.

Klay Thompson scored 21 points on 47.1 percent shooting from the field. He also grabbed five rebounds and recorded one assist.

DeMarcus Cousins returned for the Golden State Warriors in his first game back from the quad injury. He only played eight minutes and scored three points and all of them were on foul shots. Cousins also recorded two assists and two steals.

Kevin Durant did not play in Game 1 because of a calf injury and he is not expected to play in Game 2. Durant could return for this series but will see what happens.

Golden State’s bench scored 36 points. Kevon Looney scored nine of them. He also grabbed three rebounds, recorded one assist, and blocked one shot.

Five different Warriors players scored six points. Andre Iguodala was one of them and he took shot seven shots and shot 42.9 percent from the field. Iguodala also grabbed six rebounds, recorded seven assists, and blocked one shot.

He also injured his leg late in the game.

Golden State’s biggest lead in the game was only two points and Toronto’s biggest lead in the game was 12 points.

The Raptors defense swarmed the Warriors offense in Game 1 even though Golden State did score 109 points. Golden State has not faced a defense like this all postseason long and they could face this kind of defense for the entire series.

The Warriors could also double team Kawhi Leonard again in Game 2 but it could also burn them once again and they need to be better in the next game.

Game 2 of this series will be on Sunday night in Toronto.

Instead, they will have to wait until next season to try and win an NBA Championship. The last the Milwaukee Bucks won it all was in 1971.

The Toronto Raptors will face the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Game 1 will not be until Thursday night in Toronto.

Toronto Raptors One Win Away from NBA Finals

It looked as if the Toronto Raptors were going to blown out in Game 5 on the road against the Milwaukee Bucks with the series at two games a piece. Milwaukee had very bad offensive stretches and it allowed Toronto to stay in the game in the first-half.

The Raptors were able to make big shots down the stretch and Fred VanVleet made some of them. He dropped seven 3’s in this game off the bench and it was one of the reasons why Toronto took down the Bucks in Game 5, 105-99. The Toronto Raptors now lead this series 3-2 over Milwaukee.

They are one win away from their first NBA Finals berth.

When Toronto had a 99-97 lead with 34.7 seconds remaining, it seemed as if Milwaukee was going to get the ball back because of a potential shot clock violation, but the ball grazed the rim and Marc Gasol grabbed the rebound. Not only did he grab the rebound, Gasol was also fouled.

Raptors Supporting Cast Helps Kawhi Leonard in Game 4

One player doesn’t make a team, it takes a collaborative effort to win championships. Kawhi Leonard was limping throughout the entire contest. The Toronto Raptors supporting cast played a huge role in Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks at home with Toronto’s bench outscoring Milwaukee’s 48-23.

Because of it, the Raptors dominated Game 4, 120-102. The series is now tied at two games a piece.

As for Milwaukee, Khris Middleton led the way with 30 points on 73.3 percent shooting from the field and it was by far his best game of the series. This was one of the few good things in Game 4 for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Game 5 of this series will be on Thursday night in Milwaukee. The pressure now falls back onto the Bucks after the Raptors evening this series at two games a piece.

Raptors Win in Trenches in Double Overtime Against Bucks

The Toronto Raptors had their backs against the wall heading home being down 0-2 against the Milwaukee Bucks heading into Game 3. With Milwaukee trailing 96-94 late in regulation, Khris Middleton tied the game at 96 with 2.2 seconds remaining after Pascal Siakam missed two free throws.

On the ensuing possession, Siakam missed a three as time expired. In the first overtime, Toronto had a 2-point lead with 14.5 seconds remaining, but George Hill made both foul shots. Kawhi Leonard missed a shot as time expired at the end of the first overtime.

With the game tied at 103 with 4:24 remaining in overtime, Giannis Antetokounmpo fouled out for the Bucks. Because of it Kawhi Leonard scored eight of his 36 points in double overtime as the Raptors won Game 3, 118-112 in double overtime.

He shot 44 percent from the field. Leonard also grabbed nine rebounds, recorded five assists, blocked one shot, and recorded two steals. It appeared as if he suffered a lower-body injury in the first-half, but it didn’t seem to stop Kawhi Leonard playing for 52 minutes and willing his team to another victory.

Pascal Siakam stepped up big time in Game 3 with 25 points on 50 percent shooting. He grabbed 11 rebounds, recorded one assist, blocked one shot, and recorded three steals.

Giannis Antetokounmpo only scored 12 points on 31.2 percent shooting from the field. He was a monster on the glass with 23 rebounds. Antetokounmpo also recorded seven assists, blocked four shots, and recorded one steal.

It wasn’t his best game of the postseason, but it also didn’t seem as if Giannis Antetokounmpo didn’t show up to play at all. For some reason, it felt like he scored more than 12 points in this game but that wasn’t the case.

Eric Bledsoe scored 11 points on 18.8 percent from the field. He also grabbed four rebounds, recorded five assists, and recorded three steals.

Khris Middleton had another shaky game for Milwaukee. He only scored nine points on 18.8 percent shooting from the field. Middleton could be the difference between winning and losing this series for the Bucks. Middleton grabbed nine rebounds, recorded three assists, and recorded one steal.

Nikola Mirotic scored 10 points, grabbed five rebounds, and recorded three steals.

Milwaukee’s bench scored 54 bench points. George Hill scored 24 of them and Malcolm Brogdon scored 20 of them. I thought in many ways that Brogdon was the Milwaukee Bucks second best player in this game.

He shot 47.1 percent from the field. Both Hill and Brogdon recorded two steals and one assist. George Hill grabbed seven rebounds and Malcolm Brogdon grabbed five rebounds.

Game 4 will be on Tuesday night in Toronto. It could be another epic game. A lot of people expect the Milwaukee Bucks to find a way to win in Game 4, but I think the Toronto Raptors will find a way to use home court to their advantage once again and it could get very interesting if it does.
