He wasn't necessarily predicting it. The Raptors will try to draw even when they host Game 4 on Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time). "We've been doing it all season long". The Bucks also own the league's top defense and they are extremely well-coached under Mike Budenholzer. You can't stop great players.
Key matchup: Leonard vs. Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Bucks have so many weapons that can inflict pain. But the fact that it took two overtime periods to clinch a six-point victory does not bode well for their long-term prospects in this series or beyond. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 30 points, 17 rebounds and five assists in the win. Leonard has arguably been the best player in the playoffs, and Antetokounmpo is a frontrunner for the regular season MVP award. "We gotta take it in there with a little more physicality, courage", Nurse said before Game 3.
If the Raptors would've lost the third game, the shame would be a lot to bear. The image that will last is of Leonard, who labored through a career-high 52 minutes, throwing down a lefty dunk on a fast break in the second overtime and grimacing in pain. They finished with 20, leading to 21 points for Toronto. A game within the game he can not find a way to win.
"I think our mentality was just better tonight", Nurse said. "You have to have the same mindset and do it possession by possession by possession, continue to chip in". He's going to force his way to his spot. Green said. "Even the greatest in the world have some slumps or miss some shots or have games where they're off..." You can't stop great players.
Vivek Oberoi, Slammed For Aishwarya Meme, Wants Sonam Kapoor To Stop 'Overacting'
During this tense phase actor Vivek Oberoi has shared a meme that has not gone down well with the netizens. However, in his tweet, he compared the exit polls to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's life.
"After a tough Game 2 personally, you want to come out and get rid of the bad taste", Gasol said.
The Bucks were more than frustrated waking up still exhausted on Monday morning. They thought they let an opportunity to go up 3-0 slip away.
"It was emotionally draining", said Middleton. He missed two free throws late in regulation that could have iced the game, but recovered from that to make two from the stripe near the end of double overtime to help the Raptors clinch the win. "Usually, good basketball players, they can do that really well".
"What bothers me is that we had a chance", Antetokounmpo said. It's the fourth game. And we've probably got to shoot it a little bit better. Leonard and Pascal Siakam combined for 61 points in Game 3.
The Bucks' bench was strong once again, with Malcolm Brogdon and George Hill combining for 44 points. Milwaukee is shooting just 29.5 percent from 3-point land in the Eastern Conference finals. An advantage that wasn't warranted, at least according to the New York Post.
