With another loss to the Raptors last night, the Milwaukee Bucks have lost their last four games. With their starting point guard, Jrue Holiday out due to the league’s health and safety protocols, the Bucks have been struggling to score. On the defensive side, the Bucks have been giving up over 110 points in the past five games. The Raptors were led by VanFleet and Siakam with 56 combined points to take the 124-113 win. Kyle Lowry had left the game with an ankle injury midway through the third quarter. He also put up good numbers before his injury with 18 points, six rebounds, and six assists. With Lowry out, the Raptors still worked as a team and never lost the lead in the second half. VanFleet explained to the media that he tries to continue his level of intense play when their star point guard is out. Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo had 34 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists, but it was not enough to pull off the victory. The Bucks have not lost four straight games since the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals against the Raptors when they blew a 2-0 lead in the series. Coach Budenholzer believes the team needs to get to work for the next day. Milwaukee is looking to bounce back from this losing streak against the Raptors for the third meeting this regular season on Thursday. The Fiserv Forum is opening up to 10% capacity for fans in the upcoming games.
