The Milwaukee Bucks will look to bounce back from a rare loss to the Indiana Pacers on Thursday by turning their attention to hosting the Toronto Raptors.
No Brook Lopez, Jae Crowder or Goran Dragic was a problem for Milwaukee Thursday night, as they gave up their second highest scoring total of the season at 139 for a 139-123 final score. Two former Bucks gave Milwaukee fits as Jordan Nwora and George Hill combined for 27 points on the night. The bench for the Bucks struggled, and could not get shots to fall. The Bucks move onto their next game against the Raptors, who they are 2-0 against.
Toronto is fresh off of a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves last night, so this will be the second night of a back to back for the Raptors. Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet have led the team so far this season in scoring, with 24.2 for Siakam and 19.4 for VanVleet. The Raptors find themselves fighting to stay in the play-in tournament, while also trying to get a playoff spot secured with a six seed.
Tipoff from Fiserv Forum is set for 7 P.M.
