Over the past few years, the Bucks and the Raptors have become more of a rivalry than ever before. Ever since they beat us in the Eastern conference finals in 2019, and then go on to win the NBA finals that year. It seems as if most of the times we play Toronto, they get the better of Milwaukee, and here’s why. We played Toronto twice this week, and lost both times. The bucks have a nice size advantage over the raptors, but they don’t seem to want to utilize that. Coach Mike Budenholzer has our offense set up to almost strictly shoot threes. Which is lethal at times, but we can’t rely on three pointers all game every game. The game plan is to give the ball to Giannis and have him run the floor, and against the raptors, he either ended up passing it out or taking a bad shot himself. Coach Bud doesn’t make any changes to the offense, even seeing these mistakes happen. He relies too much on threes, and needs to realize that we have a big team that can do damage in the paint too. Another issue is our defense, mostly at the first half of the game. Toronto got a lot of easy open shots in the first half, which is what gave them the early lead. Our defense looked really slow, as if no one cared to actually defend, specifically around the three point line. Come the second half, the team looked ready to play defense, but they were already down by too much to come back. If we can switch the offense up and have our defense ready to go right away, we can start to win games! Let me know if you guys have anything to add! Or thoughts!
