Raptors Dominate in Game 5 to Take 3-2 Series Lead
Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors

By Joel Bartilotta

This was a convincing win for Toronto, as it was a near wire-to-wire victory. In fact, the Raptors led by 11 after the first quarter and held a double-digit lead for the final 21 minutes. Shooting was key, with Toronto hitting 58 percent from the field, 44 percent from three-point range and 92 percent from the charity stripe. Rebounding also boosted the Raptors, as they outrebounded the Bucks, 40-23. Giannis Antetokounmpo carried Milwaukee, as he tallied 30 points, nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks. Malcolm Brogdon finished second on the team, totaling 19 points, two rebounds and three assists. No other starter scored in double figures. Norman Powell was the player of the game, as he collected 25 points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals. Kyle Lowry amassed 16 points, four rebounds, 10 assists and three steals. DeMar DeRozan accrued 18 points, three rebounds and six assists, while Serge Ibaka provided 19 points, six rebounds, three assists and three blocks.

Washington Wizards at Atlanta Hawks

By Oscar Heanue

Seven Hawks scored in double figures on Monday, making Atlanta the first team to achieve said feat in this season's playoffs. The team's scoring leader was Game 3 hero Paul Millsap, who had 19 points to go along with nine rebounds and seven assists. Veteran center Dwight Howard, meanwhile, scored 16 points to go along with a team-high 15 rebounds. The team as a whole had a stellar outing, shooting around 45 percent and hitting 12 three-pointers. For Washington, shooting guard Bradley Beal bounced back from a poor Game 3 with a team-high 32 points on 11-of-23 shooting. All-Star point guard John Wall, meanwhile, had a 22-point, 10-assist double-double. However, he did commit six turnovers on the night. Big man Marcin Gortat also had a hit-and-miss game, pulling down a whopping 18 rebounds but ending with only two points.

Golden State Warriors at Portland Trail Blazers

By Nick Brazzoni   

C.J. McCollum picked the wrong night to have his worst performance of the 2016-17 season. With the Trail Blazers down 3-0, McCollum put on a forgettable performance in what ended up being the last game of the season for Portland. Entering the game's fourth and final quarter, McCollum had been 0-of-9 from the field and had just two points thanks to a pair of free throws. He ended up shooting 2-of-12 from the field overall and had just six points in 31 minutes. And while it was his worst performance of the season, from both a shooting and scoring perspective, it was the the fifth time this season McCollum failed to score at least 10 points. Monday's performance marked the second time in the last five games that the shooting guard failed to score double-digits, as he scored just nine points on 4-of-20 shooting from the field in their regular season finale against the Jazz.
