The Milwaukee Bucks took every blow the Toronto Raptors laid upon them in the first half and would hold off the defending NBA champs for a 108-97 victory. The Bucks went down by double digits in the first half, largely due to hot shooting from Toronto, before a surge right before half time to cut the lead down to two. They would ride that momentum to a much different second half, one in which Khris Middleton scored 17 of his 22 points on the night to silence a raucous crowd.
