The Milwaukee Bucks fell to the Toronto Raptors 118-112 in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals series. Here are the key adjustments they will need to make to bounce back in Game 4.
The Milwaukee Bucks came into the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals against the Toronto Raptors having won eight of their first nine postseason games and that success continued through the first two outings of this series as well.
Following a come-from-behind 108-100 win in the series opener, the Bucks took a 2-0 series lead following a dominant performance in Game 2. But with the series venue shifting to Toronto, the Bucks knew they would need to bring their A-game. Unfortunately, things didn’t play out the way they had hoped.
The Raptors, who needed a win to avoid going down 0-3, played like a team that was fighting to keep its postseason run alive. Although it would take a pair of overtime sessions before the outcome was decided, the Raptors came away with a hard-fought 118-112 win to cut the series deficit in half. This marked the first time the Bucks lost on the road in the 2019 NBA Playoffs.
Although it was a disappointing loss for the league’s top team, the Bucks are still in good shape and they only need to make a few tweaks before the next game. So, without further delay, here are a few key adjustments for the Bucks as they head into Game 4.
