Bucks set sights on new series in Toronto

With the series tied at 2-2, the Bucks return to Toronto for Game 5 Monday night eyeing another road win and shot at pushing the Raptors to the brink of elimination.

MILWAUKEE - It's the greatest fear for this group of deer, finding the level of consistency needed to win a playoff series.

"It was just a sloppy game for us, I don't know how many turnovers we had, 20?" Bucks center Greg Monroe said. "That's too many. Just a sloppy game for us."

With Saturday's 87-76 home loss to the Raptors, Milwaukee let a potential 3-1 series lead slip out of their grasp.

With the No. 3-6 matchup now even at two games apiece, it's a clean sheet heading back across the border for Game 5 Monday night.

"We have played desperate, the game wasn't our way," Bucks forward Giannis Antetkounmpo said. We just have to keep playing, trust our game plan and hopefully get a win in game 5."

"We've got to play together, have more energy on the road and take care of the ball," Bucks guard Malcolm Brogdon said.

Luckily for the 2017 postseason Bucks, they've already had success at Toronto's hostile home court.

After winning the first game of the matchup played at the Air Canada Centre, Milwaukee is confident they can duplicate their success.

"Find out a lot about yourself in the face of adversity," Bucks guard Jason Terry said. "The series is tied, now it's the first one to two, won in that building before, now we have to go up there and do it again."

"We just have to come in motivated, high energy, knowing we can do it again," Bucks forward Thon Maker said.

Bucks forward Michael Beasley joked all of Canada will be at the Air Canada Centre for this pivotal showdown.

The question is which Bucks team will make the trip?

Head coach Jason Kidd hopes it will be the upstart group which turned heads during the team's impressive Game 1 and 3 victories.
