Drake is really canceled after Game 4

For Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors the writing’s on the wall

Toronto's Fred VanVleet, who missed 16 of 20 shot attempts through the first three games of the series, went 5 for 6 from the field in Game 4.

Serge Ibaka had 17 points and 13 rebounds for the Raptors, who improved to 7-2 at home this postseason.

Despite the stellar play of Milwaukee's two best players, combined with the breakout from the Raptors' supporting cast, the Bucks failed to secure the victory, losing by the final score of 120-102.

With Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam both logging more than 50 minutes and even Marc Gasol pushing 45 in the double-overtime win over the Bucks in Game 3, the 14:29 beside Ibaka's name in the boxscore was very surprising. Game 5 is Thursday night in Milwaukee.

"We stepped up for him", Lowry said. "Their bench, particularly tonight when they played so well as a group, stands out - 17 [from Ibaka], 13 [from VanVleet], 18 [from Powell], he said". Now, in the span of just a few days, they've lost twice that amount.

Human nature or coach-driven nurture, so much of the result comes down to the mental and physical resilience of the players engaged in the back and forth. In Game 3, Toronto was a home-court favourite, giving up about 2½ points in most Las Vegas books.

Durant and the Golden State Warriors were facing the Los Angeles Clippers and Patrick Beverley had played impressive defense on the talented forward through the first two games. "We got punched. They played really well".

While he was flying back to Toronto again Tuesday morning to play in Game 4, he had time to reflect on being in the midst of the worst shooting slump of his playoff career.

"I think the consensus today is he's exhausted, and he's got two days and will be ready to go", Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said. "I'm expecting we'll shoot better in Game 4". And you can make the case the Raptors have been the better team for the bulk of Games 1 and 3.

The Bucks are 22-1 (95.7%) straight up and 19-4 (82.6%) against the spread when coming off a loss, including 10-1 SU and ATS on the road in that spot, covering the spread by 6 points per game. The rapper was seen on the sidelines mocking Giannis Antetokounmpo and rubbing Raptors' coach Nick Nurse's shoulders among other things.
