LIVE: Raptors head to overtime in crucial Game 3 matchup against Bucks
(The Star Religion)

Follow our Raps Tracker for live reaction from Toronto Star sports scribes Doug Smith and Bruce Arthur all game long. Stay tuned to @StarSports and thestar.com/sports for all your post-game reaction.HalftimeWith their season on the line, the Raptors began Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final at the Scotiabank Centre with some of their best basketball of the NBA post-season.A swarming defence heavy on double-teams enticed nine turnovers and Norm Powell provided a much-needed offensive spark off the bench as Toronto clung to a 58-51 lead over the Milwaukee Bucks at halftime.Powell played 16 of the 24 minutes over the struggling Danny Green and had 10 points while Kawhi Leonard had 15 and Pascal Siakam had 12 for the Raptors.No Milwaukee players were in double figures as the Bucks shot just 39.5 per cent from the floor and were led by nine points from Eric Bledsoe.Pre-gameIt is, quite simply, the most important game the Raptors have played this season.How will they respond?Down 2-0 to the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Eastern Conference finals, the Raptors can ill afford to lose tonight — a 3-0 deficit is a death knell — but a victory at the Scotiabank Arena will change the narrative of the series 180 degrees.Coach Nick Nurse said he was toying with changes to the starting lineup and that would be something of note but it’s going to take 48 minutes of concerted effort for the Raptors to subdue the Bucks. Nurse did not divulge pre-game what those changes would be.Milwaukee is 10-1 in the playoffs so far and, led by the sublime Giannis Antetokounmpo, maintained home court advantage with two wins last week.Game 4 in the series in Toronto will be Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. Whether it’s a funeral for the Raptors season or a chance to climb right back to even in the series is to be determined tonight.Read more:Bruce Arthur: Raptors walk fine line between trust and change with season in the balanceRaptors rethink rotation with Powell back up to speedRepre ...
