The second game of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals will see Milwaukee Bucks host Toronto Raptors on Friday.
Milwaukee Bucks are coming off a win in the first game of the season where their moving pieces did most of the heavy lifting. Even though Giannis Antetekounmpo wasn’t able to assert his dominance, the team still managed to pull a victory out of a bad situation. This is why they are one of the favourites to win the title, and coach Budenholzer will be looking to make sure that the main players step up their game here.
Meanwhile, Toronto Raptors are overly dependent on Kawhi Leonard. He has been in sensational form ever since the regular season got over, but still can’t carry the burden of the entire franchise. He will be looking to seek support from his teammates in order to even compete in this series, and prove why he is the best player in the world right now and should be top of the list for any team looking for a free agent after this campaign is over.

MIL vs TOR Dream11 Team:
After the first game, it is clear Milwaukee have the advantage here. That’s why we have gone for a 5:3 ratio in favour of MIL.
Giannis Antetokounmpo, N Mirotic, B Lopez and M Brogdon are the most important players for the Bucks. Every one of them had a big game, hence their inclusion here.
For Toronto, Kawhi Leonard was the hero they needed, but he was not supported aptly. Even though Kyle Lowry dropped 30 points, he doesn’t find a place in this team, as his credit points are way too high to take a risk on his selection. Instead, we have gone for G Hill in the point-guard slot Lowry would’ve occupied.
M Gasol and N Powell are taken as fillers, and as players who are bound to play some crucial minutes for The Raptors.
The two key players in this team are clearly Giannis and Kawhi, and we couldn’t compromise on leaving either one of them out, that’s why we have also not taken Khris Middleton in this team.
In terms of star player, Giannis and Kawhi are the only options, and given that Bucks are more likely to win the game, we have gone with the Greek Freak to double his points.
In the second team, a similar ideology is followed, and the only changes we have made are by giving an option in similar positions.
Danny Green replaces Norman Powell for the Raptors, whereas Pat Connaughton replaces M Brogdon.
Same goes for Serge Ibaka, who will be taking the spot of Marc Gasol.
Everything else, is virtually identical, even the Star Player.
MIL vs TOR Dream11 Predictions:
This is going to be a close match like the previous one, but we see Milwaukee Bucks once again coming out on top and take a 2-0 lead in the series.
