Bucks – Raptors: Jrue Holiday Size Boss

For those wondering if the Bucks can win games without Khris Middleton or Giannis Antetokounmpo, the answer is “yes”! After two losses in Miami, Milwaukee continues its second straight victory without its best attacker, and this time it’s against the Raptors (130-122) who have kept four victories in five games, including one in New York the day before. ..

The Bucks can once again thank Jrue Holiday who had his best game of the season with 37 points, as well as the outside shooters as they finished 19 of 39 from 3-pointers! Also thanks to this distant address of Jrue Holiday, as well as Joe Ingles, that Milwaukee had the best start: 44-34 after twelve minutes. Also in Toronto, there are some shooters, and Fred VanVleet and Gary Trent Jr. will reverse. the trend to sign a near perfect 2nd Quarter to lead 74-67 at the break.

Returning from the locker room, Brook Lopez pulled out all the stops, and Grayson Allen began planting from distance. The two players took turns in 3-point shots, and Milwaukee returned to the front (105-97) to attack the final quarter. Except for Gary Trent Jr. was having a big night, and he put together dunks and 3-pointers to bring the Raptors within a point. At the back, OG Anunoby started, and Toronto was in ambush (111-110). This is where the night incident took place with a clash between Lopez and Trent. The first one is thrown out, and the referees distribute strategies.

Fred VanVleet took advantage of Book Lopez coming out to attack the circle, but the Bucks shooters were still hot. Pat Connaughton, Allen and Holiday still hit the mark from long range, and the Bucks took a seven-point lead with two minutes left. What followed was a defensive festival with counters from Joe Ingles and Holiday to leave the Raptors two minutes without a point. Bucks final victory 130-122 to stay dolphin of the Celtics in the East.

WHAT YOU SHOULD REMEMBER

– The dismissal of Brook Lopez. Funny scene with this “slow” between Brook Lopez and Gary Trent Jr. The Bucks pivot takes off his blindfold, and then it goes up. The referees ruled that Lopez removed the blindfold and then pushed OG Anunoby away. Result: two procedures, and therefore an expulsion. This is his first in his career.

– The free throws are great. As good as the Bucks are, the Raptors have a way of pushing themselves. They shot themselves in the foot with 10 missed free throws, and a very average 63% behind the line. Pascal Siakam and Scottie Barnes missed 8 to two apiece.

TOPS/FLOPS

Jrue vacation. Against the Pacers, Jrue Holiday was impressive from start to finish, and we still remember his “money time” for his 3-point step-back after his defense of Fred VanVleet. With 37 points, he signed his best performance of the season.

Grayson Allen. Each of his 3-pointers was like a breath of fresh air for the team. His aggressiveness is important, and he also has the ability to raise his level of play.

Joe English. From the first quarter, we felt it was going to be a good night. Wise from a distance, he ensures his accuracy. Like Holiday, he manages a decisive counter in “money time”.

Fred VanVleet. It’s hard to fault him for anything because he’s a real machine on the ground. He, in the 2nd quarter, woke up his teammates.

OG Anunoby. A match without the winger to do everything from the Raptors. His 2 of 13 shots hurt…
