5/25/2019@ TORONTO              
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.
Bucks look to reclaim momentum from Raptors in Game 5

Bucks look to reclaim momentum from Raptors in Game 5

The Toronto Raptors have the momentum, but the Milwaukee Bucks will be playing on their home court Thursday night in the pivotal Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Raptors will try to maintain the energy they showed in winning the past two games at home to even the best-of-seven series at 2-2.

"Each game is its own entity," Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. "Let's see. ... if we can go do it in Milwaukee, we need to take this challenge of playing in a hostile environment, right? We're going into a tough, loud place to play, and let's see if those guys can bring that same pop and focus, determination on the road."

The Bucks, meanwhile, will be trying to find the defense that was lacking in the Raptors' 120-102 Game 4 victory on Tuesday.

"I think (Tuesday) is probably the first night defensively where I don't feel like we were close to where you need to be to give ourselves a chance," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "So, credit to Toronto. They obviously played well, had a lot of guys step up and play well. Their bench was very good."

The Bucks started the game aggressively -- led by Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored the first five points of the game -- and led 12-5. But Toronto eventually took over and led 32-31 after one quarter and dominated the rest of the way.

"We had a great start the first few couple of minutes, we started aggressive -- especially Giannis," said Nikola Mirotic, who scored 11 points. "But then I think we allowed a lot of points, especially that first quarter after those few minutes ... our defense was not the way we should be (Tuesday). We're going to learn from it and try to bounce back next game."

Mirotic said the defensive problem "was a little bit of everything."

"Rotation, defensive transition as well, we didn't show the crowd as we usually do," the Bucks forward said. "They beat us on the boards (44-40), a lot of offensive rebounds (10) so it was just not the best game. But listen, nobody said it was going to easy. We're 2-2. We need to go back to Milwaukee and do the same what they did with us. They punched us here and we're going to do the same there."

"We just came out in the third quarter flat," Antetokounmpo said. "It's something we can get better at, it's something we can fix, it's something we've been doing all season. Usually in the third quarter we come out and we're aggressive, we're making shots, we're moving the ball. ... Hopefully when we get back home we can shoot better in the third quarter and throughout the whole game."

With Kawhi Leonard favoring his left leg after playing 52 minutes in Sunday's double-overtime win by Toronto, others stepped up. Kyle Lowry scored 25 points in Game 4 and the bench -- led by Fred VanVleet (13 points), Norman Powell (18 points) and Serge Ibaka (17 points, 13 rebounds) -- was vital.

"It was big time," said Leonard, who had 19 points, seven rebounds and four steals. "Everybody contributed (Tuesday), knocking down shots, playing great

defense. (Ibaka was) making plays, getting rebounds, blocking shots and making shots on the other end. You know, when he does things like that everybody just gets energy and just the whole team flows at that point."

Leonard played 34 minutes Tuesday.

"I feel good," he said. "Keep going and keep fighting and we have a chance to make history."
