Aftermath: Recapping the Bucks' Game 1 victory over Toronto

We break down the first game of the Eastern Conference Finals, in which the Milwaukee Bucks did not shoot well but still managed to defeat the Toronto Raptors 108-100.

Some of the biggest storylines:

  • Brook Lopez scored a playoff career-high 29 points to spark the Bucks and their rally in the second half
  • After shooting 6-34 from three through three quarters, Milwaukee finished 11-44 from deep with a 5-for-10 effort in the fourth quarter. Still only 25%, but the Bucks won
  • Despite shooting 39% overall, Milwaukee won by eight points
  • The Bucks' bench is much deeper than Toronto's and Malcolm Brogdon led the charge with 15 points as a reserve
