SportNBA Finals: Burning questions for Raptors - Warriors Game 3. Here we look at five burning questions heading into Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals Wednesday They had the week off and got to watch Game 6 between the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors to see their next opponent.

This question is twofold. We’re openly wondering if Gannis’ ankle is good after he tweaked it late in Game 5. It forced the MVP candidate to sit out a couple plays before returning. There are some who think Antetokounmpo — who has played a lot of minutes — was more winded than anything else.

In no way does this excuse the lackluster performance we’ve seen from the Greek Freak over the past three games. He has turned it over 14 times and is averaging only 17 shots per game. Antetokounmpo needs to be more aggressive in Game 6. It’s going to be key to the Bucks’ success.

Will Raptors parlay home-court advantage?

Toronto posted the third-best home record during the regular season at 32-9. It has gone 7-2 in nine playoff dates at Scotiabank this postseason. That included a season-saving double-overtime victory over the Bucks in Game 3.

Bucks seeking 2-0 lead over Raptors in East finals

Bucks seeking 2-0 lead over Raptors in East finals When the season started, everyone knew the Eastern Conference would have a new king. LeBron James left Cleveland, having taken his talents to Los Angeles. And even Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo wasn't sure who would take his place. "I didn't know we were going to be in the Eastern Conference finals or not," Antetokounmpo said. "I just know that he's a top player that we always had problems against him and the Cavs. Now he's not playing for the Cavs, so it's going to be a little bit easier. I didn't see it as an opening. But when you look back and see how everything went, it's definitely an opening not having LeBron in the East.

Here are the biggest questions we have ahead of Game 4. How healthy is Klay? When Lowry is on his game offensively, the Raptors are extremely difficult to beat. He certainly was in Game 3, hitting 5-of-9 from three, scoring difficult buckets in the paint and finishing with 23 points and nine assists.

What I'm Hearing: Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel discusses the Bucks ' collective mindset as they head back to Toronto facing elimination in Game 6 . USA TODAY.

It’s paramount that Nick Nurse’s squad takes advantage of the home crowd in Game 6. The entire nation of Canada will be watching to see if this franchise can earn its first trip to the NBA Finals. That’s a whole lot of pressure on a team that in the past cracked under similar circumstances.

Will Bucks’ new lineup continue to be a boon?

We really like what Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer did Thursday night. It might not have been enough to overcome late-game struggles, but the combination of Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe performed well after the former was inserted into the lineup for Nikola Mirotic.

We’re highly intrigued to see how this works out in Game 6. Brogdon and Bledsoe combined for 38 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists in Game 5. Mirotic failed to score in 11 minutes of action off the bench. Milwaukee will need him to perform well off the bench in Game 6.

Can the Raptors get more from the bigs?

The Milwaukee Bucks dominated the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals at home against the Toronto Raptors . In NBA history, no team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit. With that in mind, let’s look at some burning questions ahead of this incredibly important Game 3.

After putting up tremendous Game 4 numbers, Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol struggled Thursday night. The two combined for just 10 points and 12 rebounds in the victory. They were saved by the performance of Fred VanVleet off the bench.

There’s no telling if VanVleet will be the same dominating outside presence as we saw in Game 5. If that’s not the case, Toronto must get more production from its bigs.

Will Kawhi dominate, close this one out?

There’s absolutely no reason to believe Kawhi Leonard can’t continue his dominating recent run, leading Toronto to the NBA Finals in the process. Hobbled by a leg injury in Game 5, Leonard tallied 35 points, seven boards and nine assists. He hit huge shot after huge shot in the fourth quarter.

The question here isn’t as much about Leonard. He has dropped 30-plus points in nine of the past 12 games. Instead, it’s about the Bucks making Toronto’s best player work more for it. If Leonard is as efficient in Game 6 as we’ve seen throughout the series, it’s not going back to Milwaukee Monday.
