MANILA, Philippines – The Toronto Raptors did not upset their home fans as they avoided a 0-3 deficit against the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday, May 19 (Monday, May 20, Philippine time).

Kawhi Leonard showed up in crunch time to rally Toronto to a 118-112 Game 3 win over Milwaukee with 8 of his 36 points coming in the second overtime. 

Leonard received sufficient help from his supporting cast as Pascal Siakam and Marc Gasol had 25 and 16 points, respectively. 

It also helped the Raptors' cause that Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo scored just 12 points on a 5-of-16 shooting and fouled out early in the second overtime period. 

Toronto will look to level the series score as it hosts Milwaukee in Game 4 on Tuesday, May 21 (Wednesday, May 22, Philippine time). – Rappler.com
