The main reason the Bucks beat the Raptors in game one was the stunning play of Giannis Antetokounmpo who had 28 points and some of the most athletic plays of the game. This included an incredible block that stole momentum and ultimately the victory.
Where is Lowry?
On the other side of the court the Raptors needed help from some of their best players. Kyle Lowry has had a history of struggling in the playoffs and it happened again as he only managed to get four points in game one. That is going to have to change if they have any hopes of winning.
