The Raptors survive, winning 105-99 in what was the biggest game in franchise history. Now they return to Toronto for Game 6 for what now is the biggest game in franchise history — and a chance to go to the NBA Finals for the first time.

Doesn't get much better than this: 3-point game after three quarters in Game 5 of a tied series. Seems likely Kawhi Leonard will be in for the duration, too. Looks much better than he did in Toronto physically.

Giannis is bleeding from his mouth/nose area after apparently being scratched by Kawhi Leonard. He appears to be okay. This game has a lot of contact.

After neither team could hit an open shot in the first half, this second half feels pretty rudimentary: first team to get hot wins.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

It was 18-4 Bucks early in the first quarter. It's now 34-all midway through the second. Impressive response by Toronto, though both teams can't hit the broad side of a barn right now. Bucks are 1-10 in the second quarter.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Bucks lead 32-22 after one. Feels like the Raptors are lucky to only be down by 10 after that one. Bucks shot 54 percent overall, went 4/7 from 3, and forced Raptors into four turnovers. Toronto will have to be much better to climb back into this.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

First Pascal Siakam and now Kawhi Leonard have two first quarter fouls. Raptors have begun to claw their way back but another bad sign.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Yet another change in venue, and another nice start for the home team. Raptors have missed three open looks from behind the 3-point arc already, while Bucks have already generated three turnovers and have jumped out to an 11-3 lead.

Eric Bledsoe scoring four of the Bucks' first seven points is not something to overlook. He has struggled to make baskets in Games 3 and 4 and that affected his confidence. Before the game, a source close to Bledsoe told me that earning All Defense honors helped boost his morale.

Malcolm Brogdon will start for the Milwaukee Bucks instead of Nikola Mirotic. Brogdon had not started since coming back from injury.

The Drake saga seems like it will continue in Milwaukee. This is one fan's shirt. He is passing out Drake faces to other fans...

Raptors coach Nick Nurse said he gave Kawhi Leonard the option to have shootaround off this morning, but Leonard insisted on coming and getting in some work. Nurse says he thinks Leonard is fresher today and ready to go tonight.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Raptors coach Nick Nurse on Kawhi making All-NBA second team: "Well, he's awfully good. ... We saw him cruise to a lot of 30-point games. ... He's playing great. He's right up there with the guys playing the best in the playoffs."

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Budenholzer says he expects Giannis Antetokounmpo to stay in the 36-38 minute range — the thinking being it is better to have him at peak efficiency in that range than going to 40 or more minutes.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer says that he is still evaluating possible changes to his starting lineup. "We'll probably know before tipoff."

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Because Rudy Gobert won defensive player of the year last year and was named to an All-NBA team this year, he joins Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard and Kemba Walker as qualifying for the supermax. Gobert can sign a supermax extension next summer.
