The Milwaukee Bucks are facing playoff elimination after losing home court advantage and falling to the Toronto Raptors 105-99 at Fiserv Forum on Thursday night.
The Bucks captured the first two games of the series, but have now dropped three straight for the first time this season.
Kawhi Leonard scored 35 points, hitting the 30 point mark for the fourth time in the series. Leonard added five three-pointers and had seven rebounds and nine assists. Fred VanVleet added 21 points, hitting 7 of 9 three-pointers in the Toronto victory.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 24 points for the Bucks, while Eric Bledsoe added 20. Guard Malcolm Brogdon returned to the starting lineup and added 18 points and 11 rebounds.
The Bucks led by 10 after the first quarter and as many as 14 in the first half, but maintaining consistency on offense was a problem again.
Khris Middleton struggled offensively, not hitting his first field goal of the game until the first minute of the fourth quarter. Middleton had missed his first six shots.
The Bucks now head to Toronto for Game 6 of the series, needing a victory to get the series back to Milwaukee for a game seven on Memorial Day.
