The Eastern Conference Finals between the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks will tip-off on Wednesday night from the Fiserv Forum. The second-seeded Raptors needed five games to eliminate Orlando in the first round and were pushed to the final buzzer in Game Seven versus Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Toronto F Kawhi Leonard delivered a dramatic buzzer-beater during Sunday’s 92-90 home victory. The Raptors won despite shooting just 38 percent from the field.

Kawhi Leonard poured in a game high 41 points on 16-for-39 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds. Serge Ibaka chipped in 17 points and eight rebounds in 29 minutes off the Toronto bench.
The Milwaukee Bucks won a league best 60 games during the regular season and are looking like a team primed to win an NBA Championship. The Bucks swept the Pistons in the first round and defeated the Celtics on the road twice during the Eastern Conference Semifinals. On Wednesday, Milwaukee built a 13-point halftime lead and cruised to a 116-91 home victory versus Boston. The Bucks outrebounded the Celtics by a 68-61 margin and limited them to 31 percent shooting.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 20 points to go along with eight rebounds and eight assists. Khris Middleton added 19 points and eight rebounds for the Bucks.

Toronto F OG Anunoby (appendectomy) has not appeared this postseason and is unlikely to play in this round. These are the top two teams in defensive efficiency in the postseason, so the under is worth a look. The stronger play is on Milwaukee to cover the number in Game One. Final Score Prediction, Milwaukee Bucks win and cover ATS 113-102.
