MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks opened an early lead and never looked back en route to a 104-77 Game 2 demolition of the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night inside a rocking and rolling BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Khris Middleton orchestrated the charge with 20 points and 7 assists while sparkplug Giannis Antetokounmpo added 19 points and 8 rebounds as host Milwaukee took a 2-1 lead of the best-of-7 series.
Four other Bucks registered double figures in points -- Greg Monroe (16), Michael Beasley (13) Ton Maker (11) and Matthew Delavedova (10). The Bucks shoot for a decisive 3-1 advantage when Game 4 returns to BMO Harris Bradly Center on Saturday afternoon (early Sunday AM in the Manila).
The Bucks shot a high 52.7 percent from the field (39-of-74) and bombarded the Raptors with 12 triples. Toronto, meanwhile, made only 24-of-71 filed goals (33.8 percent) and 6-of-22 from 3-point distance (27.3 percent).
Toronto's All-Star backcourt didn't bring their stuff, combining for a pedestrian 21 points as Kyle Lowry went 4-for-10 from the field while DeMar DeRozan couldn't buy a bucket, 0-for-8.
