    Great game tonight! Serge really took over, and his block of giannis and then 3 pointer on the other end swung the momentum to a level Milwaukee couldnít come back from - didnít meet any raptors but met Matt Devlin at the game and Jack Armstrong at a lounge afterwards - Jack is an incredibly humble and knowledgeable guy that took more time than I ever would have asked for to talk Raps with me, and made Brad Fay snap a couple photos for us
    Man, that is awesome.
    I have a very cool "selfie" with Jack and Matt before a game at MSG a couple years ago. I also found Jack to be gracious and humble with fans wanting to meet him and talk Raptor basketball.

    PS: how did you snag such great seats and I wonder what they set you back!!!!

        Thanks Sprout. I actually have been making a concious attempt to spend less time on social media including this place.

          I just assumed it was something I said.

            Raps have really been ordinary and inconsistent over the last few weeks but that game was a statement win for them and a great way to bounce back after a very poor showing in San Antonio. I see the East coming down to Milwaukee or Toronto so that win could prove huge at the end of the season as I think the teams will be very close down the stretch.

            Glad that Steve04 had a great experience. There's nothing better than paying up for great seats to see the team you're passionate about and then have them come through.

              Yes, injuries to JV and Lowry are more destabilizing than hoped for. And the consistency of the backups (VanVleet and Ibaka/Monroe) certainly isn't quite there. But hopefully this win gives the team a boost.

              • Lowry is back in the lineup tonight. Kawhi however is not. Would have been nice to have them both on the court after that big win last night but assuming Kyle doesnít aggravate anything they should both be back later in the week.

                • Minnesota has fired President and Coach Tom Thibodeau.

                      Was it ever. What a weird series of games of late. The Spurs laughed them out of the arena on Thursday. Saturday the starters were amazing with the bench scoring less than 10. Tonight was more of a group effort with 7 or 8 scoring in double digits.

                      Nice of the Raps to rebound and win 2 straight against a couple really good division opponents when they could have turtled after the Spurs game.

                      The schedule gets a lot easier going forward. Raps have played the most games and the most road games in the league thus far. That means a much more relaxed schedule going forward with extra rest and practice time.

                      The last couple weeks had me worried but Iím optimistic that they can get things going in the right direction. The next thing is to get everyone healthy.

                      Last thing is Masai finding one more piece to take CJ Miles role as a 3 point specialist. Heís been super disappointing to say the least.

                          Yeah, I'm pretty sure I could have invited myself to sit with him and Brad Fay after the game, and he would have apologized for not asking me to have a seat. Honestly was expecting the 10 second let's get a picture and get out of here treatment, instead he went out of his way to ask me questions about where I was staying, how I enjoyed the game, stadium and city, and then talked ball for probably 5-10 minutes, he was unbelievably hospitable considering I approached him while he was off the clock, and to be honest was a bit tipsy by that point.

                          Haha got lucky snagging such great seats, weren't cheap, but if I would have realized that they came with free food and booze before the start of the second quarter, I might have made my money back!

                          I actually bought GA tickets the night before, since I was in town and got a chance to see Atlanta get blown out. Was cool to see Vince Carter who really got me into watching basketball, even though he obviously is nowhere near the player he once was, and get to see up and coming Trae Young, as well as Giannis twice in a row.

                          All in all great experience, the arena is beautiful, the downtown of Milwaukee is fun if you like eating and drinking (I do), and one of the friendliest big cities I have ever been too. Getting to see a tight, fun game, that resulted in a Raptors victory was just a bonus!

                            Lowry out has really hurt the team. Thanks, it was a great time! Can't afford a trip like that too often, but glad I was able to cross that one off the bucket list. Two things that struck me from sitting that close is how small the court actually is, and how fast the game is actually being played at, 2 things both very deceiving when watching on tv.

                              And sitting that close, you really appreciate how big these guys are. Giannis must have looked 12 feet tall!!
