Down 83-76 going into the final period, the Bucks kicked into life, scoring more than 30 points before the buzzer called time.

The hosts romped home on a 10-0 run, forcing Toronto to miss their final eight shots.

Brook Lopez scored 13 of his play-off, career-high 29 points during the Bucks blitz, while Giannis Antetokounmpo added 24 and Malcolm Brogdon 15.
