The Toronto Raptors were very, very, very bad in Game 3 of their playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night.
After the first quarter, the Raptors had 12 points. At halftime, they had 30 points. And after the third quarter, they had 46 points. 46 TOTAL POINTS AFTER THREE QUARTERS.

Toronto actually scored 31 points in the fourth quarter, but that was after anyone stopped caring in a game that was a full-on blowout, with Milwaukee winning 104-77 to go up 2-1 in the series. Zero Raptors players even had over 13 points. They shot just 33.8% from the field, while allowing the Bucks to shoot 52.7%.
Well, in the postgame press conference, Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry certainly didn’t deny that the team’s performance was abysmal:
“We got our ass busted.”
That pretty much sums it up!
Lowry and the Raptors will look to put together a much better performance as they try to even up the series in Game 4 on Saturday afternoon.
