    He got a technical for THAT? Lame ass refs. NBA is becoming more and more of a girls league. I miss the times where real men were allowed to play and react and be themselves. He just swung his arm in excitement, and he got a technical? Lol jeez.

    That was a pity technical.

    Refs felt bad for DeRozan.

    Winners and losers of NBA playoffs opening weekend

    Winner: The Milwaukee Bucks' young core

    By starting rookies Malcolm Brogdon and Thon Maker in Saturday's win in Toronto, per ESPN Stats & Info research the Bucks became the first team to start a pair of first-year players in a playoff game since the 2013 Golden State Warriors. (The Warriors actually used three over the course of their playoff run: Harrison Barnes, Festus Ezeli and a second-rounder named Draymond Green.)

    While that stat is a tad misleading given Maker's starting role often tends to be ceremonial in nature (he played just 15 minutes in Game 1), Milwaukee still starts five players age 25 or younger, and 26-year-old Greg Monroe was the oldest Bucks player who saw more than 10 minutes of action Saturday. Led by a complete performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee's youngsters played beyond their years in a game that offered Bucks fans an encouraging taste of what lies ahead.

    Losers: The Raptors in Game 1, again

    Temper Milwaukee's success with the fact that by this point we can almost put Toronto's loss at home on Saturday in Game 1 of the first round on the calendar. This is now four consecutive years of the bizarre trend, while other home teams have gone 22-6 (.786) in their playoff openers, according to ESPN Stats & Info research.

    Based on the regular-season point differential of the Raptors and their opponents, we'd expect about a 0.4 percent (or 1 in 238) chance of Toronto losing four home playoff openers in a row by random chance (and 1 in 880 if we include losing to the Miami Heat in Game 1 of last year's conference semifinals). By now, of course, it's pretty clear that something beyond random chance is affecting the Raptors in the playoffs, whether it's the health of Kyle Lowry or the team's style translating poorly to the postseason. And that's particularly been true in Game 1 over the years.​

    Raps are 1-11 all time in game 1s and 0-9 in first round game 1s. That seams almost unreal.

    Every so often a young team gets hope that they can beat you...and then when they do it...they just believe. The Bucks have the confidence needed to steal a series. That being said...the Raptors will show up.

    Giannis guarding a Center to a standstill should be terrifying for the eastern conference. Jonas tried to back him down, couldn't do it.

    Patterson with the midrange.

    Further proof I'm Patterson's #1 fan. Carl Herrera is nowhere to be found in this thread. We only see him when he wants to bash Morey and argue with CFnet for trading PPatt. He's PPatt's #1 whiner, while I just took the medicine of the trade and moved on. :p

    Yeah, in fact i think that they probably called that to avoid a potential fight since the game was ended and Derozan looked pretty angry lol

    And why in the hell the Raptors still had the starters in with less than two minutes to go and down 20?

    Bad game by Giannis, or has Toronto figured out how to play him?

    5-17 so far. Yikes.

    Just leave him open for outside shots, and hope he keeps settling for them? That's the book on him isn't it?

    Basically. The roll defender on Giannis' PnRs keeps going underneath the screen and daring him to shoot. If I was Giannis, I'd drive in immediately once I see this, since there's so much space. You're either going to draw a foul or pass it out to an open man, since the defense will collapse because you're a Freak.
