MILWAUKEE — The hesitance and hesitation that hounded Kawhi Leonard's supporting cast in the second round was gone inside two minutes, as the weapon timid Toronto Raptors opened these Eastern Conference finals as veritable gunmen. 

The torrid shooting show was sufficient to altogether panic the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks, however it didn't keep going very sufficiently long to beat them. 

Milwaukee guaranteed a 108-100 Game 1 triumph Wednesday, enduring a playoff profession high seven threes from Kyle Lowry to gut out a tight challenge with a final quarter rebound. Giannis Antetokounmpo counted 24 points, 14 bounce back and six helps for the Bucks, yet three-pointers by focus Brook Lopez, who completed with a playoff profession high 29, swung the last time frame. 

"This is the Brook we as a whole know and we as a whole love," Antetokounmpo said. "[Raptors center] Marc Gasol is endeavoring to be dynamic and help a great deal, and Brook will be wide open. At the point when he's going, we must discover him to an ever increasing extent." 

In spite of the annihilation, it was a promising begin for the Raptors. Leonard had conveyed his received group past the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday by shooting multiple times, including a sensational ringer mixer, and completing with 41 of Toronto's 92. The exertion was both gallant and proof of an offense excessively subordinate upon him. Against Philadelphia, Lowry, Pascal Siakam and Gasol all seemed happy with sneaking away from plain sight to watch Leonard's noteworthy exclusive show. 

Beating the Bucks, the East's most astounding scoring and most productive three-point-shooting group amid the standard season, requires an alternate equation dependent on better hostile equalization. 

At an early stage, that is actually what the Raptors got. Siakam covered a three-pointer to open the scoring, Lowry nailed two out of a line minutes after the fact, and Toronto's conduits opened. The Raptors hit six three-pointers in the principal quarter, 10 in the main half, and 15 by diversion's end. 

Toronto's outside shots were wonderful for their amount, their assorted variety of sources and their aspiring areas. The Bucks' resistance has been worked to surrender midrange jumpers and "over the break" three-pointers with expectations of securing the paint and urging rivals to take lower-rate shots. It was quickly certain that the Raptors were going to take the shots that were given to them, as Lowry ventured into different profound threes and save watch Norman Powell, a reconsideration against Philadelphia, hit a couple of threes in the principal half. 

The Raptors positioned 6th in three-point rate amid the normal season yet entered the Eastern Conference finals positioned thirteenth out of 16 playoff groups. In the run-up toward the East finals, Coach Nick Nurse seemed like a cross between a broker offering obligation absolution and an explorer anticipating a postponed train. 

"For some folks, you could even really utilize those accurate words: fresh start," Nurse said Wednesday, when gotten some information about the Raptors' reluctant and temperamental shooting. "For some folks that weren't playing much, this arrangement displays another group, another arrangement of chances. Man, I trust we make some a greater amount of those shots. I've been stating that for some time." 

Milwaukee, on the other hand, staggered into Game 1 by missing its initial six three-point endeavors, with some neglecting to draw iron by any means. Antetokounmpo, the least dependable three-point shooter in the Bucks' beginning lineup, at long last got one to follow almost seven minutes of failing. 

As the second half proceeded, however, Toronto's shooting steadily relapsed and Milwaukee's gotten. Lopez scored 13 in the final quarter in a solid counterpunch. 

"We worked superbly of staying with what we've been doing," Lopez said. "Shots turned out poorly early, however we worked admirably of pounding it out by playing guard. There's no stopped in our group." 

In the interim, the Bucks' resistance held Leonard to only two points in the last time frame, and Antetokounmpo was satisfied with his group's physical and restrained safeguard that expected to send Leonard to one side and stop up the paint to deter his drives. 

"Kawhi is going to hit shots," Antetokounmpo said. "In the final quarter we pummeled him. We made him feel us the entire diversion. We're endeavoring to make him play one against five." 

Leonard still completed with a diversion high 31, however the Raptors, beside Lowry, missed each of the 15 of their final quarter shot endeavors. Their sterling early scoring parity evaporated as Milwaukee won the final quarter 32-17. 

"Our pace wasn't sufficient in the second half," Lowry said. "The pace we played with in the main half is the pace we have to play all amusement. [Losing like that is] entirely disappointing. The final quarter executed us." 

For the second in a row arrangement, Milwaukee barely abstained from surrendering the home-court advantage it guaranteed by winning an alliance best 60 recreations. In the meeting semis, a Game 1 flop against the Boston Celtics prompted changes from Antetokounmpo and four straight triumphs, every more resonating than the last. After that experience, the Bucks had invested their energy off this week vocalizing the significance of avoiding another early-arrangement bumble against Leonard and the Raptors. 

"Against Boston, you can go down 1-0 and still be fine," Antetokounmpo said Tuesday. "Be that as it may, against Toronto, it's difficult to be in that spot when you lose the primary amusement in your home." 

The Bucks along these lines leave Game 1 breathing a moan of alleviation, realizing that their childhood and physicality had the option to outlive the Raptors down the stretch. Knowing that they persevered through an edge whirlwind that would have broken numerous groups
