Through the first half VanVleet had just six point, but would add 15 in the second half, all of them from behind the three-point line.
After the 105-99 loss Thursday in Game 5, Giannis Antetokounmpo received treatment for a right ankle injury, but he says it won't bother him when the series shifts to Toronto in Game 6.
He never did find that offensive rhythm but three blocks, 13 rebounds and some stellar defensive work were extremely valuable contributions. Danny Green had been ineffective across the board, but even more so in cities not named Toronto.
Turning up the defence: Things improved for the Raptors with an improved defensive effort, as Toronto held Milwaukee to just 27 percent shooting in the second quarter, including 1-for-9 from beyond the arc. Toronto coach Nurse said to reporters at Thursday's shootaround. With the deficit as much as 14 points at one point, it seemed like the game could run away from the Raptors in a moments notice. "'Throw the ball out of bounds one time and I'll knock the hell out of Drake'".

"By doing so, the court can not credit his privacy interest as good cause to keep the case records sealed", the decision said . The judge added, "These are not the actions of a person seeking to maintain his privacy or simply to be let alone".
"I like Drake, I think he's great for the game, but for an National Basketball Association coach to be anxious about that instead of worrying about that", Barkley said. You've just got to go and shoot the ball, that's my mindset.
"We're not gonna fold", Antetokounmpo said.
Whatever the cause, the home-road story isn't particularly unusual in this league. The Raptors evened the series at two games apiece on Tuesday night and naturally Drake had to ham it up for the cameras, at one point getting up from his courtside seat to give Toronto Coach Nick Nurse a shoulder rub. That streak included the Raptors' Game 5 win over the Sixers in the previous round, wherein Toronto blew out the Sixers by 36 points at Scotiabank Arena.
"Tonight, a little bit of a unusual box score", Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said after Game 5. The Raptors got the ball back on the next possession when a video review showed the ball bouncing off Milwaukee's Malcolm Brogdon and out of bounds.
