For the Raptors, Game 2 was another sign of relief for a group familiar with first round disappointments, and another great escape from a potential early playoff disaster. "He covered the rim last night pretty well in the second half, he runs the floor really well and he's really good in that scheme".
The Raptors shot 48 per cent on the night, while holding the Bucks to 41 per cent.
The Raptors center made franchise history when he finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds in Game 2 of Toronto's playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Tucker said he didn't play at all like a rookie. We're going to try to give him the shot, and he's not going to take it.

Welcome back my Toronto Raptors vs Milwaukee Bucks fans.
Without Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee closed the quarter on an 11-5 run to take a 75-70 lead into the fourth.
Lowry got to the line nine times, shot 50 percent from the field and got five dimes to go with his 22 points. Malcolm Brogdon went without a point in the quarter with just two field-goal attempts.
INJURY UPDATE: Serge Ibaka did not practice Monday because of a sprained left ankle, suffered when he stepped on Antetokounmpo's foot in the third quarter Saturday. Game 2 was Casey's turn to make a move. Well, with Jabari Parker sidelined the rest of this season and at least half of next season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament, the consensus among National Basketball Association folks is Khris Middleton.
Toronto covered in their three wins and the Bucks did so in their lone win, while three of the four games in regular season have played to unders. It was the secondtime that Middleton had played at least 40 minutes since coming back from a hamstring injury on February 8. When DeRozan couldn't get a good look, he gave the ball up to Serge Ibaka, who found Lowry on the perimeter.
The Raptors just had a bad game, albeit one that highlights their deficiencies that we already knew existed. Chyna Thomas, 22, died in a vehicle accident early Saturday, casting doubt on whether Thomas would ultimate play in the opener. Gobert is just so important for the Jazz team and if he misses more than a few games it is tough to see them not getting simply outplayed by the Clippers.
As long as Butler can guard Thomas when it matters and get points for the Bulls, it's going to be the Bulls in crunch time. "Going back home we have a chip on our shoulder and I think we have the advantage". The Bulls dominated the offensive glass 20-12, leading to 23 second-chance points in their Game 1 victory.
Toronto is 6-6 all time in Game 2s. Chicago also outrebounded Boston in three of their four regular-season meetings.
PRESSURE IS ON: The Bulls bench to keep up its production. Worse the second year vs. Washington.
April 5, 2017; Auburn Hills, MI, USA; Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (7) dribbles the ball during the first quarter against the Detroit Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
Jazz at Clippers, Jazz lead 1-0. "My teammates want me to be more aggressive, so I'm going to force some more shots". It was just their third win in 21 games against the Clippers.
Giannis Antetokounmpo was seeing the postseason for the first time as the unquestioned No. 1 option.
This marks the latest in our virtually daily run of podcasts at the moment, as we check in with preview and post-game episodes for every game in the series. Clippers backup guard Austin Rivers (strained left hamstring) has resumed shooting, but isn't expected back yet.
On the one hand the Raptors got back even in the series, but seeing how it took everything they had to do so suggests this series is not going to be an easy one for whoever survives it.
