It's do or die for Milwaukee Bucks' Matthew Dellavedova and Thon Maker

Bradley Beal scored 32 points, bouncing back from a dismal performance in Game 3, and John Wall had another stellar performance with 22 points and 10 assists.

Secondly, and perhaps more interestingly, Milwaukee finally went cold from deep. They turned 15 turnovers into 28 points and came up just three shy of an all-time franchise mark for assists in a playoff game with 28. Tony Snell was the only Buck to hit one from long range.

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey did what he could to manage Lowry's stress, constantly communicating with the 31-year-old about the degree of limitation he was experiencing. The best players and the best coaches don't always mesh, get along every day: That's part of what this sport of basketball is about.

Putting Norm Powell in the starting lineup has changed the playoff fortunes of the Toronto Raptors. While that helped a bit, a lot of evidence points to the Raptors just getting lucky on Saturday.

Tony Snell went off for a playoff career high with 19 points on 5/10 shooting from beyond the arc, and looked like the Bucks' best player on both ends of the court.

The Raptors and Bucks split the first two games in Toronto, then split their two games in Milwaukee. Milwaukee has covered in four of its last five games with Toronto. "Thon Maker can make threes. If we do that, we're going to be in a great position". With the season on the line, Powell spearheaded a 21-2 run that included a signature breakaway dunk that remains Powell's most iconic moment in the league to date.

"Win or lose, we are here with you". He was good with 12 points on 3-of-7 shooting, but he was on another level in Game 5.

Valanciunas said the Raptors won as a team Monday. Lowry did not participate in shoot-around.

The girls game starts at 6 p.m., followed by the boys at 7:30 p.m. His voice was raspy.

"I was just going quick, being aggressive, not waiting on the doubles", DeRozan said.

There was no immediate word on the health of Fred VanVleet or Delon Wright.

Brogdon said Powell has given Toronto more versatility. He has described his relationship with Casey in the past as something of a marriage: Good days, bad days, the occasional argument, sometimes more than that. Game 2 didn't look anything like Game 1, which didn't look anything like Game 3 which didn't look anything like Game 4 and didn't look much like Game 5 last night. He concluded the night with eight points and seven rebounds to Monroe's 11 points and two boards. The starters were pulled with 2:46 remaining and the Bucks down 113-90.

Dellavedova has a net rating of plus-11.4 points per 100 possessions, and that does not seem coincidental. "But I thought he played through it as well as could be expected". "It's tough for a guy that's started every game that he's been physically ready for and able to play. He's playing harder than everybody". Attack the Bucks, make them scramble on D, and try not to get stuck firing up the last shot as the clock expires. The ground wasn't icy or snowy, and he said he wasn't doing hills.

"We can't get too high", Carroll said. "That's why I like him". "You're going to have to take an arm and a leg off of him before you keep him from playing". He's gonna get out there and get dirty.

"They were pushing each other, I don't know", Valanciunas said dryly of Middleton and Monroe.
