The Toronto Raptors bounced back with a 123-116 win against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.
All Raptors starters scored in double digits, including Pascal Siakam who recorded a career-high in points with 30. Kawhi Leonard also scored 30. Serge Ibaka had efficient night on both ends as he scored 25 points, grabbed nine rebounds, and provided five assists. Fred VanVleet scored 21, and Danny Green scored 12.
Former Buck Greg Monroe only saw six minutes of action.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had to do the majority of the work for Milwaukee, he recorded a double-double as he scored 43 points and grabbed 18 rebounds. Malcom Brogdon scored 15, Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton scored 14 each. Big man and new sharpshooter Brook Lopez was limited to five points.
The Bucks turned the ball over 14, and the Raptors 11, but the Bucks PA system took advantage of one and played Kawhi Leonard’s laugh after the turnover.
Serge Ibaka had one block on the night, which led to a productive play on the offensive end right after.
The game was tight throughout, Toronto put it out of reach for the Bucks in the fourth quarter.
It was announced late Sunday morning that Kawhi Leonard will rest Sunday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, Kyle Lowry is listed as questionable.
Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. at Scotiabank Arena.
