Packers’ Aaron Rodgers Roasted For Weak Beer Chug At Raptors-Bucks Game
May 25 2019
Milwaukee sports shortcomings only continued from there, as the Raptors snuck past the Bucks 105-99 to take a 3-2 series lead in the Eastern Conference finals.
The Raptors now lead the series 3-2 and have a chance to clinch an NBA Finals Berth with a win in Toronto in Saturday's Game 6.
To catch you up - he's a Toronto Raptors superfan, er "global ambassador", who freely roams the court at his enjoyment during games, which means, of course, there's a possibility he is sitting courtside if the Raptors play the Warriors during a possible NBA Finals matchup. They're facing Kawhi Leonard, a player who is quickly forging a legacy as one of basketball's best. Though the Bucks kept it close until the final seconds, the Raptors used a dominant 15-point fourth-quarter from Leonard to outscore the Bucks 33-24 in the fourth to pull away and pick up a comeback road win in Game 5. Eric Bledsoe, who has been an abject failure in this series so far, got off to a fairly hot start with nine points in the opening minutes.
Later in the game, a fan wearing a Bakhtiari jersey was shown downing a beer on the big screen, prompting the lineman to empty a can into his own mouth.
For the first time all season, the Bucks have dropped three consecutive games, and unfortunately, there won't be a different opponent in Toronto.
Marc Gasol connected on a three, his first points of the game, to put Toronto up by seven, but Antetokounmpo's three made it a two-point game with four minutes left. "We've created great habits all year long, so hopefully it comes out in Game 6".
"I know it's not easy to sit here and think, "Oh my God, we could do it", but I'm certainly not thinking that way", said Nurse.
"We're not gonna fold", Antetokounmpo vowed, cutting off the question.
The Bucks' outshot the Raptors 45.2% to 36.9%, outrebounded them 53 to 45 and had 26 assists to Toronto's 19, but their poor perimeter defense was the most critical factor in the game. His answer is the most Kawhi thing we've ever heard. The Raptors' excellence in those areas offset their pitiful performance from inside, where they converted only 31.7% of their two-point attempts.
Later on, the rapper was spotted giving Raptors head coach Nick Nurse a shoulder rub.
Budenholzer wasn't the only losing patience with Drake's act. We'll leave it all on the court, make shots and play hard and give out energy and hopefully we can get a win. The hosts at 103.7 KISS-FM said they hoped their "break from Drake" would help the Bucks squash the Raptors.
