Leonard scores 36, Raptors beat Bucks 118-112 in 2 OTs

It's not do-or-die for the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, but it's pretty damn close.

Milwaukee Bucks: Player grades from 125-103 Game 2 win over Toronto Raptors: Scott Romportl also reflected on Friday's game, assessing the Bucks' individual efforts with player grades for the win over Toronto.

The Raptors led for virtually all of regulation, and nearly all of both overtimes, but did so while getting nearly all of their points from five players: Leonard, Pascal Siakam (25), Marc Gasol (19), Norman Powell (19) and Lowry (11). Kyle Lowry, who fouled out in the fourth, had 11 points including three makes from downtown.

The Raptors got a big boost off the bench from Norman Powell in Game 3, too.

One player who has been quiet this offseason has been Nikola Mirotic, a 6-10 forward who is a 36 percent career three-point shooter.

Siakam scored eight points in the third but the Raptors made six turnovers, leading to nine points for the Bucks. Toronto took a narrow 77-75 lead into the fourth. Additionally, Leonard recorded an NBA Playoffs franchise record 52 minutes of play, while Marc Gasol added 16 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3pt FG), 12 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 blocked shots in the victory. Fred VanVleet and Hill traded threes, then Leonard connected from 16 feet and the Raptors clutched a two-point lead going into the final two minutes.

Brogdon's reverse layup had the Bucks back to within two with 38.7 seconds to go. Siakam missed two free throws with 7.4 seconds left prompting groans from the Scotiabank Arena crowd that included rappers Drake and Gucci Mane, actor Mike Myers, former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre, Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, Nashville Predators defenceman P.K. Subban and Toronto Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner.

Think of all the stories that coursed through the Raptors' 118-112 double overtime win. Green played just 21.8 minutes in Game 2, and its possible he plays even less today. There were no end-of-regulation heroics this time for Toronto as Siakam missed on a long jumper to send the game into overtime.

Siakam said later he apologized for missing the free throws. A Gasol three and Leonard dunk off a Green steal had the Raptors up by three.

The Raptors led by 11 points after Lowry hit a 3-pointer with 4:13 remaining in the half.

No Milwaukee players were in double figures as the Bucks shot just 39.5 per cent from the floor and were led by nine points from Eric Bledsoe.

Green's three with 3:32 left in the first overtime, his first make of the game, had Toronto up by three. Pascal Siakam only had eight points with one rebound.
