Thursday night was filled with embarrassment for the Toronto Raptors. Not only did the No. 6 seed Milwaukee Bucks blow them out 104-77, but BMO Harris Bradley Center also introduced their paleontological opponents to the Barney theme song.

If there’s one way to play down the dinosaur intimidation factor, that’s it.

Of course, a move like this only makes you look dumb if you can’t back it up on the court, so the Bucks came out and tore the Raptors to shreds. Toronto didn’t make its first field goal until more than six minutes into the game, and Milwaukee was more than doubling them up late in the second quarter until Delon Wright’s last-second three cut the lead to 57-30 at halftime.

Milwaukee’s defense has been completely on point this series, as you can see by how baffled and out of sync Toronto looked on this possession in the second quarter.

Giannis Antetokounmpo even blocked a shot with his elbow on Thursday.

The Raptors got their act together — somewhat — in the second half, but it was nowhere near enough.

The Bucks now hold a 2-1 lead on the third-seeded Raptors with Game 4 also taking place in Milwaukee on Saturday. After the Bucks won Game 1 comfortably in Toronto and then nearly won Game 2 on the road as well, the Raptors could benefit from some uplifting television to mentally recover on their off day.
