NBA: Playoffs-Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, Big Blue Nation.

The Toronto Raptors defeated the Milwaukee Bucks last night thanks to another huge series from Kawhi Leonard. He finished last night’s game with 27 points and 17 rebounds. The trade that Toronto pulled off to acquire him from the Spurs is certainly paying off.

Now the Raptors are tasked with facing the defending champion Golden State Warriors. While Leonard has an argument as the best player in the NBA, he’s facing off against two other candidates for that title.

All I’m hoping for is an entertaining series. Period.
