Giannis Antetokounmpo had 23 rebounds, seven assists and four blocks, but also eight turnovers and 5/16 FG for 12 points and the Toronto Raptors after two overtimes got the 118-112 win (1-2) and stayed alive in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Kawhi Leonard finished the night with 36 points, made all the big plays and decided the outcome, while the Raptors also got big help from Spanish big man Mark Gasol who had 16 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and five blocks.

His compatriot Serge Ibaka added five points and six rebounds for Toronto, while also Spaniard Nikola Mirotic scored 10 points for Milwaukee. Turk Ersan Ilyasova had two points for the Bucks, in what turned out to be a dogfight.

Milwaukee stayed in the game, thanks to the offensive performance of the bench duo of George Hill (24 p.) and Malcolm Brogdon (2o p.) and had the chance to steal the game. Still, Toronto was the last team standing in the end as Antetokounmpo fouled out at the start of the second overtime.
