Gary Trent Jr. added 28 points and Pascal Siakam scored 23. Giannis Antetokounmpo was not in the lineup for Milwaukee, but Toronto served up a season-high 37 points to Jrue Holiday. Scottie Barnes scored 14 points and had 13 rebounds, steadily increasing his activity to coach Nick Nurse’s liking. ''He has just decided to play more aggressive and that's good, '' Nurse said to Associated Press reporters after the loss. ''We're finding that he can bring it and be aggressive, we can play through him a little bit, let him kind of play pass-first and if that isn't there let him be aggressive after that, and play through the low post a little bit, as well. '' The game got chippy and play was stopped at 6:40 of the fourth quarter with Milwaukee leading 113-110 after an altercation near the Bucks' basket between Trent and Milwaukee's Brook Lopez.
Kessler scored 20 points and put up 21 rebounds. Gobert left early in the game with a groin injury. ''The story of the game was on offense and ability to finish around the paint, '' Minnesota coach Chris Finch said after the game to AP reporters. ''I think we were, let's see here, 28 for 52 in the paint. That's a lot of misses in the paint. And not all of them were because of great defense. We missed a lot of easy ones. '' Gobert was listed as questionable before the game with right groin soreness. He started against his former team, but only played five minutes before exiting again.
Take Toronto. Prediction: Toronto Raptors -2. 5 Full-Game Total Pick The Raptors rank 27th in pace heading into this contest against Minnesota. Toronto fell to 20-25 on the season with a 130-122 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday night. Fred Van Vleet led Toronto with 39 points, but it was the work of Scottie Barnes that was promising. Although he scored 14 points and 13 rebounds last game, Barnes had scored 20 or more points in four of his five previous games. Without Gobert available, he has a good chance to do some work inside against a Minnesota team 26th in rebounding percentage. Both teams will struggle defensively in this game, take the over with confidence.
