The Toronto Raptors submitted their most dominant effort of the Eastern Conference Finals, routing the Milwaukee Bucks 120-102 to even the series at two games apiece.

Kyle Lowry was outstanding in the winning effort, recording 25 points, six rebounds, five assists on 6-of-11 shooting with just one turnover. His efforts really set the tone for a complete Raptors victory.

Kawhi Leonard added 19 points, while Marc Gasol contributed 17, but it was the Raptors’ bench that certainly came alive in Game 4. They outscored their Bucks counterpart, who have been far better to date, 48-23.

Norm Powell galvanized the Raptors with 18 points, Serge Ibaka posted 17 and Fred VanVleet had arguably his best game of the playoffs with 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting.

Bucks superstar and MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo put up 25 points and 10 rebounds, while Khris Middleton led all scorers with 30 points.

Scotiabank Arena was rocking for both Game 3 and 4, and now it’s a best-of-three for East supremacy.

The Golden State Warriors await the winner of the series in the NBA Finals.
