Toronto cannot win with just Kawhi Leonard. The Raptors big men – Serge Ibaka, Marc Gasol and Pascal Siakam need to step up. Gasol scored just two points in the Game 2 loss missing 8 of 9 field goal attempts and has made just 3 of 20 field goals in the series. If things don’t change quickly, Toronto fans will be watching Leonard in a Raptors uniform for just two more games. Final Score Prediction Milwaukee Bucks win and cover ATS 117-110
