The Milwaukee Bucks appear to have been figured out by the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals. Here’s how they can change that.
The NBA playoffs are a roller coaster of emotions and the Milwaukee Bucks are finally experiencing it. After walking through the first two rounds of the postseason with an 8-1 record, the Bucks won the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals as well. All seemed to be going smoothly for the regular season’s best team.
Unfortunately, disaster struck as the series moved to Toronto. The Bucks fell apart and have now lost three straight games. That put’s them in a 2-3 hole going back to Canada. Make no mistake about it, this is a tough hole to climb out of, but not an impossible one.
The Bucks have faced little adversity all season long. Mostly because they were that good. They only lost back-to-back games one time all season before the playoffs and never lost three in a row. Now, with their back to the walls, we will see what they are really made of.
The Raptors, led by head coach Nick Nurse, have made some brilliant game-planning decision throughout the series. They are constantly tweaking things and have figured out how to slow down the Bucks. Now, it’s Milwaukee’s turn to retaliate. Here are three ways the Bucks can regain control of the Eastern Conference Finals.
