Buy tickets to the National Basketball Association playoffs at StubHub, PrimeSport and SeatGeek. Not only did they avenge last year's first round playoff loss to Boston, but they cemented their spot in the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2001. Well, save for one particularly green matchup. The win marked Milwaukee's sixth-straight playoff win and its sixth playoff win by at least 20 points this postseason, which tied an National Basketball Association record.

After letting Game 1 of the series slip away, the Raptors had a chance to pick up a win on Friday night before heading back to Toronto.

Would Antetokounmpo have said this after Game 1 had he been asked the same question? Few games in the entire playoffs have been as close as the Game 7 showdown between the two squads.

But it should be of no slight to the Bucks if they are able to make it out of a highly competitive Eastern Conference to contend for an National Basketball Association title. There is no question the Golden State Warriors will be playing for another ring. They have shown no signs of slowing down and still have a dominant team, as evidenced by their breezy Game 1 win over their Blazers. Despite that, the Rockets put up a fight every game, eventually tying the series at 2-2.

Aside from Serge Ibaka's big Game 7, Toronto's bench was a virtual zero in the second round. The rest of the series proved to be only one more game after the Rockets failed to capitalize in Game 6.
