The Toronto Raptors are up 3-2 against the best team in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks. The Raptors finally have their best chance to make the NBA Finals. They are returning to their home court to close out the series after stealing a game in Milwaukee.
I think the NBA wouldn’t mind having the matchup of the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors. Specifically, because of Drake. He has brought the energy to the last three games of this series and has brought many headlines to the game. Although, he has been questioned by certain individuals for his tactics, that will more likely not stop him. Drake said it to himself, he loves this team, he loves this city and he has already made the statement that the Raptors are going to the Finals. The only way he stops is if the league steps in and threatens to take action. Other than that, Drake won’t stop entertaining the viewers who tune into the games while showing his passion for his team.
I also believe the Raptors are the best matchup for the Warriors. Kawhi Leonard is playing unbelievable. People love to talk about Giannis Antetokounmpo and how he is going to be the MVP this season. However, Kawhi is the most complete player, in my opinion. Leonard is averaging 31.4 ppg during this postseason while Antetokounmpo is averaging 25.9 ppg. Also, to mention, Leonard (51%) is averaging just 1% more in field goal percentage over Antetokounmpo (50%).
The Bucks trail the Eastern Conference Finals 3-2. To come back they would need to win 2 elimination games.

I can see a deeper series between the Warriors and Raptors. The Raptors have been close so many times, just to lose to LeBron James. Well, with LeBron James not in the picture, this is their best opportunity. Up 3 games to 2, hosting game six, and potentially setting themselves up for a finals appearance. The Raptors will look to accomplish that tonight while Milwaukee looks to force a game seven.
