As far as the Bucks are concerned, the only option for beating the Raptors is to simply play better. The crowd on the road was rowdy. As Tucker pointed out it was what got them a 25-point lead. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 32 points and five steals. These Raptors may not be Cleveland battled-hardened but they have taken their knocks in the past and the combination of a hostile environment and a quick-starting opponent no longer phases them.

Stenhouse took the win following an overtime shootout with reigning series champ Kyle Busch and Jamie McMurray . It was also Stenhouse's first victory in 158 starts.

perth_map

He had a chance at the potential tying 3-pointer in the final seconds of OT, but was blocked from behind by Manu Ginobili . Just like Harden's shot. I've been one of Westbrook's biggest critics this season, and especially during the first-round series with the Rockets , as his questionable decision-making with the game on the line likely cost the Thunder a game or two, so it's only fair that Harden receives the same criticism.
