Here are three takeaways from the Raptors' historic win The "others" made all the difference Toronto's bench outscored Milwaukee's in three consecutive games during its four-game winning streak in the Eastern Conference finals. The Raptors got valuable contributions from a variety of role players throughout the series. Among them were Fred VanVleet, Norman Powell and Serge Ibaka.

MILWAUKEE — Down for most of the game, clearly rusty at times after nearly a full week off, the Milwaukee Bucks looked very much like a team in trouble.

Until the fourth quarter.

The team with the NBA’s best record this season found its stride at the perfect time.

Brook Lopez scored 13 of his career playoff-high 29 points in the fourth quarter, Giannis Antetokounmpo added 24 points and the Bucks closed the game on a 10-0 run to beat the Toronto Raptors, 108-100, in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday night. Milwaukee forced Toronto into missing its final eight shots and outscored the Raptors, 32-17, in the fourth.

Drake responds on Instagram to comments by Bucks coach

Drake responds on Instagram to comments by Bucks coach Drake took to Instagram to seemingly respond to comments made by Milwaukee Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer after Game 4 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals. During Tuesday’s game in Toronto, the rapper and Toronto Raptors fan moved to the sideline from his courtside seat and gave Nick Nurse a shoulder massage. His physical contact with the Raptors coach looked odd on television and was a topic of discussion following the game. Budenholzer was among those who felt Drake was out of line. Budenholzer took a bit of a shot at Drake calling him a “fan or whatever he is for the Raptors.

After the Bucks rallied from a 25-point deficit to lead in the final quarter, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry pushed Toronto over Milwaukee 92-89 advancing to

‘‘I think it speaks a little bit to the character of the group,’’ Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. ‘‘They just stick with it. I think it’s become a little bit of a theme in the playoffs: I think eventually, hopefully, we feel like if we stick with what we’re doing good things will happen for us.’’

Lopez had a dunk with 2:20 left to put the Bucks ahead for good, added a 3-pointer on the next Milwaukee possession to push the lead to 4 points and the Bucks did just enough in the final minutes to grab the series lead.

Malcolm Brogdon scored 15 and Nikola Mirotic had 13 for Milwaukee, which closed the game on a 10-0 run.

‘‘Total team effort,’’ Lopez said.

Kawhi Leonard scored 31 points and Kyle Lowry added 30 for the Raptors, who led by as many as 13 early and took an 83-76 lead into the final quarter. Lowry was 5 for 7 in the fourth — and his teammates were 0 for 15 in that deciding quarter.

‘‘Fourth quarter killed us, 32-17,’’ Lowry said. ‘‘They outplayed us in that fourth quarter. They got a little bit more aggressive. They made some big shots, made some big plays. It sucks when you lose like that. But we had our chance and we've got to learn from it.’’
