The Bucks Used Kawhi Leonard’s Laugh To Celebrate A Raptors Turnover



Kawhi Leonard had a simple explanation after the Toronto Raptors' latest victory.

During the Raptors clash in Milwaukee against the East-leading Bucks on Saturday, Leonard was treated to a slightly less hostile troll job, this time via the Bucks game-day operations staff, who should be given across-the-board raises immediately.

Toronto improved to 29-12, and Milwaukee dropped to 27-11.

It started with Kawhi Leonard, who led the way with 30 points, six rebounds, six assists and five steals.

It wasn't the case in their first two meetings, as the Bucks combined to make 34 of their 84 3-point attempts compared to only 24-of-89 for the Raptors. We closed it [the second] with a 7-0 run and came out in the third quarter with another run. "I thought that we were in control for the rest of the way".

The Bucks still hold a lead in the season series, but the Raptors will have an opportunity to tie it up on January 11 when they play Milwaukee for the fourth and final time before a potential meeting in the playoffs. For one, they can extend their lead atop the conference, but perhaps more importantly, they can clinch the tiebreaker with the Raptors. "We never could get our rhythm back".

The Raptors also scored the first seven points of the third quarter to lead 61-57.

"What helped us was the beginning of that third quarter", Leonard said.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 43 points and 18 rebounds, each stat one shy of his career-high. He was at his best in the second quarter, when he scored 10 points to prevent the Bucks from making a big run, but he came up big down the stretch with a clutch shot over Khris Middleton that iced the game. With a win, the Bucks could clinch the tiebreaker between the two teams.

Antetokounmpo made a 3-pointer to give the Bucks a 96-95 lead with 8:12 to play, and Green responded for Toronto with a 3-pointer 28 seconds later.

The Raptors put it away with a 15-2 run, taking a 110-98 lead on Siakam's wide-open 3 from the corner with 5:14 to play.
