A crazy twist of fate has bitten the Milwaukee Bucks in the ole derriere and it hurts to be that team right now. The Bucks can still win this series, but it’s not going to be easy. They had this series all but wrapped up, all they had to do was win game five on their home floor, in front of their home fans. Nothing more, nothing less. Just show up and get a win at home. Evidently that was too much for them. Really; the Bucks couldn’t pull one out for the home crowd, they couldn’t pull it out for themselves? What a meltdown, and complete disaster for this team, that is unless they show up in Toronto and do the Raptors exactly what was done to them!

The Bucks did their job in the first two games, they protected the home court and they protected it with a resounding win in game two by a final of 125-103. That was the end of the road for a team that was thought to be a tough matchup for the Raptors.
Guess what? Kawhi showed up in the offseason and changed the game for the city of Toronto. Many questioned this trade, and frankly, many questioned Leonard’s heart. That was stupidity. Kawhi has been everything he could be for this beleaguered Raptors team that can never get over the hump and make into the NBA Finals.
