I can see this series going either way and I expect it to go the full seven games. That being said, I have fallen hard for the Greek Freak and the way he attacks the game. The work he puts in, the lack of diva-mentality and will to win will be enough to get his small-market team to the NBA Finals.

The Bucks only lost back-to-back games this season once. They won the season series with Toronto 3-1. I like their pieces, and they have the most unstoppable force in the playoffs right now in Giannis Antetokounmpo. I honestly could go either way with this series because I like the depth, star power, and defensive ability of Toronto. They slugged it out with Philly in an exciting seven game series, and that might have taken a bit out of them as well. I'm going with Milwaukee for several reasons...they won the season series, they have home court, they are the hottest team in the playoffs only losing one game so far, and Giannis Antetokounmpo is on a mission. My only hope is that the winner of this series can put up a fight against Golden State and make the NBA Finals interesting.

Giannis will be a champion one day, but not this year. That four-bounce buzzer beater is exactly why Toronto traded for Kawhi Leonard for big moments like that. This will be more exciting than the WCF with these two teams in the East. Raptors advance after going the distance with Milwaukee.

This series will allow us to see two of the best two-way players in the league (Giannis and Kawhi). Both can carry their team to victory if need be, but a full team will be required with these guys. I give the advantage to the Bucks with their depth and other playmakers.
