Memorial Day Weekend Update
There's gonna be some hoops history served up on this Memorial Day weekend, one way or the other:
Either the Toronto Raptors - up three games-to-two in their best-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks - are gonna win in either Saturday's Game 6 or Monday's Game 7 and thus make it to the franchise's first NBA Finals (the Raptors were born in 1995, remember) or the aforementioned Bucks are gonna eventually make it to their first league finals in 45 years.
Let's just say it ain't gonna be easy for either squad as they resist all temptations to look ahead at a showdown with the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors ... remember them?
True, the Raptors have shown true grit in winning / covering the last three in a row in this series with a blanket-like defense that's generally confounded Milwaukee superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo and there is no question that Toronto's momentum plus the home-court advantage here in Game 6 is vital ... but, then again, Toronto's only a 2.5-point betting favorite for this Game 6 tilt and in-the-know bettors realize the Bucks are a league-best 9-4 ATS (against the spread) as pups this season (a sizzling .692 winning rate). But how do the Bucks turn this thing around following back-to-back-to-back losses by 6 (in double-OT), 18 and 6 points? Some ideas just below
