Kyle Lowry led the way for the Raptors with 25 points, six assists and five rebounds and Kawhi Leonard added 19 points in 34 minutes on a relatively quiet night.
Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo played much better than in Game 3 but no one else stepped up for the Bucks and the Raptors simply outplayed them, particularly their bench.
The Toronto reserves outscored the Milwaukee second unit 48-23 and Khris Middleton’s game-high 30 points and Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists were simply not enough for a Bucks team that missed nine free-throws and had 12 turnovers.
The sportsbooks monitored by SBR Odds favor the Bucks by 7 points for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
