TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 59-23, lost in Eastern Conference semifinals.
COACH: Nick Nurse (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyle Lowry (16.2 ppg, career-high, 5.6 rpg), G Danny Green (8.6 ppg, San Antonio), F Kawhi Leonard (16.2 ppg in nine games, San Antonio), F Serge Ibaka (112.6 ppg), C Jonas Valanciunas (12.7 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G DeMar DeRozan, F Jakob Poeltl
KEY ADDITIONS: Leonard, Green, C Greg Monroe
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Leonard will be under intense scrutiny in his first season with Toronto, and his last before free agency. A former Defensive Player of the Year and NBA Finals MVP, Leonard was limited to nine games last season because of a thigh injury, and his relationship with the Spurs soured during his lengthy rehab. The Raptors will hope Leonard likes his time north of the border enough to sign a long-term deal with Toronto next summer.
OUTLOOK: A lot has changed since Toronto set a franchise record with 59 wins last season. The Raptors fired
COACH of the Year Dwane Casey and replaced him with Nurse, a first-time NBA head
COACH. Toronto also traded franchise icon DeMar DeRozan and C Jakob Poeltl to acquire Leonard and Green from the Spurs. The Raptors need to brush aside the issue of Leonard's future and use the regular season to get comfortable together so they can focus on postseason success.
MILWAUKEE: LAST SEASON: 44-38, lost in Eastern Conference first round.
COACH: Mike Budenholzer (first season, sixth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Eric Bledsoe (17.8 ppg), G Malcolm Brogdon (13.0 ppg), F Giannis Antetokounmpo (26.9 ppg), F Khris Middleton (20.1 ppg), C Brook Lopez (13.0 ppg)
KEY LOSSES: F Jabari Parker, G Jason Terry
KEY ADDITIONS: Lopez, F Ersan Ilyasova, G Pat Connaughton, rookie G Donte DiVincenzo PLAYER TO WATCH: What's next for Antetokounmpo playing under a new system with a new
COACH? Budenholzer is stressing spacing and perimeter shooting, which could open up more 1-on-1 opportunities to the lane for the 6-foot-11 forward with freakish athleticism. With LeBron James leaving Cleveland for the Lakers, Antetokounmpo could emerge as the best player in the East.
OUTLOOK: Expectations are up with the Bucks moving into a new arena and a new
COACH taking over with a track record of winning in the playoffs. The Bucks have made the postseason three out of the last four years. To take the next step, they must secure a top-four seed and/or at least advance out of the first round. Core players Middleton and Bledsoe are also entering the last years of their respective contracts, though Middleton has an option for 2019.
Rested Bucks ready for Raptors

Depth could make the difference when the well-rested Milwaukee Bucks host the opener of the Eastern Conference finals Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors, who were extended to the last possible second before winning a dramatic seventh game Sunday.

The Bucks finished with the NBA's best record and won the season series 3-1 against the Raptors, who had the second-best record.

Both teams used their benches effectively during the regular season.

Milwaukee's reserves remained significant as it breezed through its first two playoff rounds, but Toronto has had limited contributions from its backups.

The focus of the best-of-seven series will be on marquee players -- Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo and Toronto's Kawhi Leonard.

Then there are such significant players as the Bucks' Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe and the Raptors' Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam.

The remaining casts could determine the outcome, however.

By relying so heavily on a shortened rotation in a grueling series with the Philadelphia 76ers, won by Leonard's buzzer-beating shot for the ages, the Raptors might become a victim of fatigue. The Bucks, meanwhile, not only have had a week off, but have confidence in their reserves.

"We don't doubt our bench, not one bit coming into this game, coming into Game 1 Wednesday," Bledsoe told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel after the Bucks' practice on Monday.

Malcolm Brogdon, after missing eight weeks with a torn plantar fascia in his right foot, returned to play 17 minutes in the finale of the five-game semifinal win over the Boston Celtics last Wednesday and that makes the Bucks even deeper.

According to NBA.com, Milwaukee's bench has played 39.8 percent of the team's playoff minutes, averaging 37.4 points on 48.1 percent shooting.

The Raptors' reserves, however, have played less than 30 percent of playoff minutes -- including 24.8 percent against Philadelphia -- and have averaged 21.6 points per game on 38.9 percent shooting.

The Raptors have missed OG Anunoby, who had an emergency appendectomy at the end of the regular season. He has been ruled out for the series opener.

"In this atmosphere and environment, it takes a lot of energy and effort to be great defensively," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We're similar offensively -- we want to play fast, we want to get out and run and move. All of those things do require an amount of effort and exertion and all those things, so if we can have more people to throw at the process, more people to throw at our opponent and keep us in a good place, it's an advantage."

The Raptors will be dealing with a different style in the Bucks than against Philadelphia and in the five-game series against the Orlando Magic.

"It's a totally different style than we've just been through in our last two series," Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. "These were set-play teams, pretty methodical on offense. They'd come down and run things, and run some post-ups and run stuff for certain guys. Not to say Milwaukee doesn't do some of that, too, but they would much rather spread the floor, give it to a guy, put their head down and take it to the rim, put it in the rim. If you send help, they'll fire it out and they're going to shoot a ton of 3s."

Lowry acknowledged that Milwaukee's depth is a concern.

"They've got a lot of weapons," Lowry said. "They're pretty deep and they shoot the ball as well as anybody, and they've got the one-man fast break in Giannis and then they've got a point guard (Bledsoe) who's really, really good and physical. They've got George Hill coming off the bench and playing well."
