April 22, 2017; Milwaukee, WI, USA; Toronto Raptors guard Norman Powell (24) tips the ball away from Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (34) during the second quarter in game four of the first round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Milwaukee aims to take a 3-1 series lead over visiting Toronto on Saturday after steamrolling the Raptors 104-77 in Game 3. Four different Milwaukee players didn't miss from the arc, including Giannis Antetokounmpo, who had 19 points with eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks.
Coupled with a return to playoff form (not a good thing) for Raptors' point guard Kyle Lowry, one of the worst offensive nights of All-Star DeMar DeRozan's career (0-8 from the floor), and a disappointing showing from Game 2 standout Serge Ibaka, Toronto took themselves out of the game by the second quarter as much as the Bucks had. The Raptors held the Bucks to 5-for-21 shooting from 3-point range and forced them into 20 turnovers, a combination punch that helped Toronto both get off to a solid start and dominate the second half.
Milwaukee's motto is "Fear the Deer", and the hard-charging Bucks, with a young starting lineup that includes two rookies and a 22-year-old star in Antetokounmpo, had the Raptors running scared from the opening tip-off. While Kidd has playoff-tested veterans on his bench in Jason Terry and Michael Beasley, as well as Matthew Dellavedova, who won a title previous year with Cleveland, he has let his young players, especially rookies Thon Maker and Malcolm Brogdon, grow on the floor during this series.
Milwaukee jumped out to a 32-12 lead after the first quarter on Thursday and never had a letdown from there.
The Raptors opened up a seven-point lead when Lowry drilled a three from in front of the Bucks bench - snarling in their direction after the ball dropped through the net - with 3:28 to play in the third quarter. I'll go into more detail about the players in the Game 3 and 4 recap, but it's clear they did just what they set out to do. "Nobody should have to go out and hype you up".
"It's on us to come out this next game and tie it up".
Tony Snell led Milwaukee with 19 points.
Maker then assisted Antetokounmpo with a nifty pass off the dribble that forced Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey to burn a timeout. It's a three-game series now, with two if necessary in Toronto.

The resurgent DeRozan was 12 of 22 from the field after missing all eight of his attempts in Game 3.
