Title weight matchup between Giannis and Kawhi, who ‘s getting to the Finals?
We have a great matchup between the two best teams in the East. While the Bucks easily took care of the Celtics, the Raptors had an epic Game 7 against the Sixers ending the season for Butler, Simmons, and Embiid. JazzSports had Milwaukee beating the Boston in 6, so we were off by one game, nonetheless, we fully trusted the Bucks power to move unto the next round. This series will be tougher since they are now up against a battle-tested Khawi Leonard.
Who has the upper hand in this series?
A couple of things to point out is that the Bucks won the season series 3-1 which should give Milwaukee some confidence heading into this best-of-seven matchup. Another scenario that’s favorable for the Bucks is their rest time. After finishing off Kyrie and the Celtics in 5 games, they have had time to rest their legs and get ready for their next opponent. On the other side, Raptors are forced to get started with much lesser days to get ready as they were pushed to the limit by Philadelphia.
Toronto needs to focus on stopping Giannis. But who is going to guard him? Marc Gasol sure as hell can’t, he is too old and slow for the “Greek Freak” and all his arsenal of moves. They’ll need massive help from the likes of Ibaka and Siakam try and stop him. On the other side, Bucks will have to come up with a game-plan to stop Leonard, the good thing is that the Bucks as a whole are a much better defensive team.
We predict the Bucks in 6.
