Bucks have Milwaukee dreaming of first title since ‘71

"Are you riding? Say you'll never ever leave from beside me" and "I buy you Champagne but you love some Henny". Toronto backers will argue their club didn't have Kawhi Leonard in all of those contests.

Hours before tipoff, fans were already making their way to Fiserv Forum Wednesday, May 15, as the Milwaukee Bucks prepared to face the Toronto Raptors in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. However, Steph is making 3.6 threes per game while Seth is making just 1.3 per game.

"There was a generation when they stumbled through the wilderness, and a lot of fans lost interest", said Drew Olson, a longtime Milwaukee sports reporter who now hosts a sports talk radio show on 97.3's The Game.

"In My Feelings" was the song of summer 2018 and features the famous lyrics, "Kiki, do you love me?" They have won eight of their last nine matches and in their last game they won at home against the Celtics in game 5 with a 116-91 score, beating the odds. Brown, Green certainly has the edge, but things get a little more interesting when Brogdon enters the game.

Who wins Bucks vs. Raptors?

Toronto coach Nick Nurse said the Bucks present challenges his team hasn't faced in eliminating Orlando and Philadelphia in the first two rounds.

"It's going to be a great series". Still, it's an important matchup in the sense that these are two of the five best players in the league, and they will define how this series plays out.

The club has seen its average points per game total drop from 114.4 in the regular season to 103.6 in the playoffs.

Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum shoots over Denver Nuggets forward Mason Plumlee (left) and center Nikola Jokic in the second quarter in Game 7 of the second round of the National Basketball Association playoffs at Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, on Sunday.

Leonard "can create a shot out of pretty much nothing", Gasol said.

Milwaukee has been resting since eliminating Boston in Game 5 last Wednesday. Will a pumped-up Leonard derail the Bucks? Seth even blocked a couple of shots and they went in because he blocked them.

Meanwhile in Denver, Colorado, CJ McCollum scored 37 points and Portland overcame a 17-point first-half deficit to beat Denver in Game 7 and reach the Western Conference final for the first time since 2000.

He was right - at least for the first three quarters.

The Golden State Warriors have a gameplan to defeat the Blazers. Each playoff game is estimated to have a $3 million economic impact on downtown businesses - everything from hotels to transportation and food and beverage, according to Visit Milwaukee, an agency that promotes tourism to the city.
