Ersan Ilyasova thought he would have more help in painting when he played the right hand of Raptors striker Pascal Siakam in the first quarter of Wednesday's first match in the final of the conference. Is. In an unfortunate coincidence, it would seem that Brook Bucks 'Splash Mountain' center Lopez thought that a good way to help Ilyasova would be to meet Siakam at the rim. Bad movement!
This magnificent drive-and-dunk was part of a nine-point quarter for Siakam and allowed the Raptors to take a quick 11-point lead. The Bucks seem to be the extra few days off the series – an advantage to neutralize the Celtics in five games in the second round – have caused some rust and, as a result, they seem a little slow. In my opinion, being a victim of huge traffic jams of monsters is a good way to get rid of cobwebs.
