Once again, we asked Kyle Carr of Brew Hoop about how the Raptors can come back in this series, his opinion on Marc Gasol, and more before Game 3. Kyle Carr of Brew Hoop was nice enough to speak with us after his team ripped the heart out of Raptors fans everywhere:
Marc Gasol was a key piece in taking down the Magic and 76ers, but has been useless in Milwaukee. Do you think the Bucks present a different kind of matchup problem for Gasol?
Milwaukee always forces you into two decisions. (1.) Force Giannis Antetokounmpo to beat you 1-on-1 and stay tight on the shooters around him. (2.) Put two or three players on Giannis and risk Khris Middleton/Malcolm Brogdon/Brook Lopez, etc. hitting open threes. Orlando and Philly didn’t have the personnel or coaching to execute it while Milwaukee does. Gasol hasn’t been able to stay up to speed to play with Milwaukee, especially as the Bucks look to start every game fast.
Do you foresee any potential lineup changes the Raptors could employ that would make this series more difficult for the Bucks?
I wouldn’t be surprised if Serge Ibaka started or at the least play …
