Bucks overwhelm Raptors 104-77, take 2-1 series lead

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Khris Middleton scored 20 points and the Milwaukee Bucks overwhelmed the cold-shooting Toronto Raptors for a 104-77 win on Thursday night to take a 2-1 lead in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.
   Greg Monroe added 16 points and seven rebounds for the Bucks, who held DeMar DeRozan without a basket and never looked back after leading by 20 points after the first quarter.
   Making this blowout even more impressive was that they barely needed All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo. He finished with 19 points and eight boards.
   Game 4 is Saturday back at the Bradley Center.
   With raucous fans wearing black Bucks giveaway T-shirts to match the players' uniforms, Milwaukee put on a dominating display of basketball worthy of the team's "Fear the Deer" slogan.
   The Raptors looked frazzled after shooting 4 of 18 in the first quarter. Kyle Lowry had 13 points.
