Things seemed to be moving back in place for the Toronto Raptors after a Game 2 win against the Milwaukee Bucks, but the deer flipped the script in Game 3 on Thursday and managed a resounding 104-77 win at home to go up 2-1 in the series.
It was yet another ghastly night from the floor for the Raptors, shooting only 33.8 percent from the field, as the Bucks limited their All-Star backcourt to a mere 21 combined points.
Toronto swingman DeMar DeRozan struggled the most in particular, going 0-for-8 from the floor — making no shots from the field for the first time in his playoff career, while going a crisp 8-of-8 from the line for his only points in the game.
Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo couldn’t let that pass by at the post-game press conference, giving the Toronto guard some accidental grief while looking at the stat sheet.
“DeRozan scored only… eight points? And it was just free throws,” Antetokounmpo said.
