Giannis
Antetokounmpo
Giannis Antetokounmpo (6'11''-G/F-94, agency: Octagon Europe) scored 28 points, rookie Malcolm Brogdon (6'5''-G-92, college: Virginia) had 16 and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Toronto Raptors 97-83 on Saturday in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series. Playing his second career playoff series, Antetekounmpo made 13 of 18 shots, and added eight rebounds and three assists. Greg Monroe added 14 points, Tony Snell had 11, and Khris Middleton (6'8''-F-91, college: Texas A&M) finished with 10 points and nine assists. DeMar DeRozan (6'7''-F/G-89, college: USC) led Toronto with 27 points, and Serge Ibaka had 19 points and 14 rebounds. The Raptors have lost the opening game in eight consecutive playoff series. Toronto's Kyle Lowry (6'0''-PG-86, college: Villanova) made only two of 11 field-goal attempts, missing all six 3-point efforts, and finished with four points. Jonas Valanciunas had nine points and nine rebounds. Game 2 is Tuesday night in Toronto. Antetekounmpo picked up his fourth foul with 4:33 left in the third and headed to the bench as Toronto's P.J. Tucker (6'6''-F-85, college: Texas) was making two free throws to break a 64-all tie. Without Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee closed the quarter on an 11-5 run to take a 75-70 lead into the fourth. Milwaukee kept it going after Antetokounmpo returned for the final quarter. The Bucks scored eight straight points, including four from Khris Middleton, to make it 85-71 with 8:47 left. Ibaka's jump shot at 7:49 was Toronto's first made field goal of the fourth. Toronto shot 7 for 35 in the second half, following up a 3 for 18 showing in the third by going 4 for 17 in the fourth. The Raptors went 27 for 75 overall. Many in the sellout crowd headed for the exits throughout the final quarter as the Bucks stretched their lead to a game-high 19 points. Ibaka was the only Raptors starter to make a 3-pointer. Toronto finished 5 for 23 from long range, with the starting five going 1 for 13. No Raptors player made more than one 3-pointer. Toronto trailed 30-22 after the first but outscored Milwaukee 29-16 in the second to take a 51-46 lead at halftime. Ibaka scored 10 points in the first and DeRozan had 10 in the second, going 6 for 6 from the free throw line.

Who are the early contenders to emerge as 2018 NBA champions? - 1 day ago
The 2016/17 season tilted the way of the Golden State Warriors as early as the free agency when the California club acquired the services of Kevin Durant (6'9''-SF-88) from the Oklahoma City Thunder. The move not only greatly boosted the Warriors, but it also brought an end to the tyranny and champion-potential duo of Durant and Russell Westbrook - which pushed Golden State in the 2016 playoffs to a Game 7. Durant changed the game for the Golden State Warriors. Overnight, they became imme...   [read more]
