  • When: 8:30 p.m. EST
  • Where: Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, Canada

The big picture: The Raptors have an opportunity to clinch their first trip to the NBA Finals with a victory Saturday night.

On the other side, the Bucks hops to end a three-game losing streak and send this one back to Wisconsin for Game 7.

Can Giannis Antetokounmpo rebound?

Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors . Game 6 line: Raptors -2.5. Game 6 over/under: 212.5. Fortenbaugh: Toronto has done an exceptional job of flipping this matchup on its head by making the necessary adjustments on a game-by-game basis to put itself in position for a series win as early as

I finally felt ready to watch this game again. What a comeback. Next year will be Milwaukee's year to contend. (fair use/not for profit).

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.

NBA Playoffs 2019: Raptors coach Nick Nurse contemplating lineup changes for Game 3, but has faith in starters Marc Gasol and Danny Green struggled in Game 2

He had only six assists combined during Games 1 and 2, but tallied 11 during the two games the Raptors won at home. The question of what Bledsoe is not the only Bucks starter struggling badly. Nikola Mirotic is 6 -of-28 from 3 during the series, and he is getting hammered on the boards by Serge

Opinion: Kawhi Leonard saves Raptors ' season in double-overtime Game 3 win over Bucks : Kawhi Leonard free agency rumors: Star re-signing with Raptors is a ‘serious consideration now’ With that in mind, let’s look at some burning questions ahead of this incredibly important Game 3.

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?

Burning questions for Raptors-Bucks Game 3

Burning questions for Raptors-Bucks Game 3 The Milwaukee Bucks dominated the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals at home against the Toronto Raptors. Now the series has shifted to Toronto for Game 3. Game details: Here’s a look at the start time, television information, and odds for tonight’s Raptors-Bucks Game 3. When: 7 p.m. EST Where: Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, ON TV: TNT Betting Line: Toronto -2.5 / 220 points The big picture: One more win for the Bucks Sunday night almost assures Toronto will be ousted from the playoffs. 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.

With the countdowns to Game 1 in full swing, these are eight burning questions —one for each Giannis Antetokounmpo has not yet won a playoff series, but the Bucks ’ first-round matchup against the The Raptors again find themselves near the top of the East, this time with a reworked team and

"It's an elimination game," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said Friday. "It's just a fact." Raptors coach Nick Nurse added to that, suggesting the With his team heading home in need of one more win to set up a finals showdown with Golden State, Nurse knows the Raptors still face a daunting task in Game 6 .

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.

“We're going to need Bled," Budenholzer said. "Eric's been great for us, his defense, his ability to attack. We need him to play better." pic.twitter.com/IQQ3weISLG— Ben Golliver (@BenGolliver) May 22, 2019 Bledsoe has scored just 16 total points on 5-of-23 shooting over the last two games, which were both Milwaukee losses. Khris Middleton, however, said the team has not lost its confidence in the point guard. “He's been very good offensively,” Middleton told reporters. “Got to put it behind him. Only way you're going to get out of a slump and only way you're going to play better.
