For the first time all series, the Toronto Raptors were able to contain Giannis Antetokounmpo in game four of their series.

He was held to 14 points on six of 19 shooting and his teammates could not pick up the slack. As such the Raptors rolled to an 87-76 win.

Toronto is a complete team and in a seven-game series of facing the more inexperienced Bucs every night it does make sense that they would find wrinkles in their game and strategies where their advantages would begin to appear.

Beyond bringing more energy to the court, Toronto decided to bring center Jonas Valanciunas in off the bench and start Norman Powell at small forward.

Both moves worked especially well starting with Powell. He scored 12 points and was able to get to the hoop consistently which opened up space for Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan. His strong defense against Khris Middleton also meant that when Antetokounmpo’s shot wasn’t falling, that second option wasn’t there either.

Valanciunas’s role was to essentially play when Greg Monroe played and he did an excellent job neutralizing the Bucks big man.

Milwaukee is thought of as one of the most versatile teams in the league and they routed Toronto in both of their wins, including game one in Toronto. It’ll be up to them to make the necessary adjustments for another road win.

I don’t think it will happen as Toronto finally takes the series lead.

Bovada has the Raptors listed as 6-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 192 according to MyBookie.ag
