The Toronto Raptors advance to first NBA Finals with Game 6 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. The Toronto Raptors trailed by as much as 15-points midway to the third quarter. The Raptors used a 26-3 run from the third and fourth quarters thanks to Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry. Milwaukee seemed poised to send this series to Game 7 in Milwaukee on Monday night. The Bucks came out hot in the first quarter and Toronto couldn’t buy a basket. Khris Middleton came out hot in the first quarter hitting his first two 3-pointers to set the pace. Giannis came up huge on the defensive end, but once again he struggled on the offensive end. Giannis finished 7-for-18 from the field and only 5-for-10 from the free throw line. Giannis did pull down 11 boards, dished out four assists and had three blocks to go with those 21 points.
Kawhi Leonard finished with 27 points, 17 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals. Leonard had plenty of help in Game 6 to help clinch the NBA Finals appearance. Kyle Lowry have had a tremendous series finished with 17 points, 8 assists and 5 boards. Fred VanVleet had another great game finishing with 14 points off the bench. VanVleet continues his hot streak from 3-point land as he went 4-for-5 last night. Norman Powell and Serge Ibaka continue to shine off the bench for the Raptors also. The Raptors advance to face the 2-time champs, the Golden State Warriors starting Thursday night. Of course, the Warriors swept the Blazers a few days ago. Warriors will have about ten days off before the start of the NBA Finals. The status of Kevin Durant and Boogie Cousins is that they won’t be available for the start of the NBA Finals.
