We’ve had that video on repeat ever since the game wrapped on Monday night. Powell was a powerhouse, going 4-for-4 from downtown for three-pointers. The guard out of UCLA, went 8-for-11 in shooting, and he also contributed four assists, four rebounds and three steals. Talk about a game MVP?!
Toronto looked like a different team in Game 5. With the help of Powell’s impeccable performance, the Raptors are finally on top. On Monday, the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference stole the 3-2 series lead in the first round playoff game. The Bucks’ loss also put them on the verge of being eliminated from the playoffs, so they’ve got to be on edge right about now.
Powell was the star of the game Raptors game against the Bucks and his teammates knew it, especially veteran, Kyle Lowry, 31. In a press conference after the game, when reporters only addressed Lowry, he made sure Powell got the spotlight. “Norms here,” Lowry replied to a moderator, after he asked reporters if there were any more questions. “Ask him a question,” Lowry said while he pointed to Powell. And, the slam dunk king just laughed if off. How humble?!
After a stellar performance in Game 5, the Raptors are set to play on Thursday, April 27! Their opponent is still to be determined.
HollywoodLifers, who do you think the Raptors can win Game 6?
