The Milwaukee Bucks hope to flip the script on their neighbors to the north when they open their playoff series against the Toronto Raptors this afternoon. The Raptors hold a decisive 13-2 advantage over the Bucks during the last four years. The Bucks snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Raptors in a 101-94 victory on March 4 at the Bradley Center that saw Milwaukee win 14 games in 18 tries during the month. This series marks the second time in three years the Bucks have made the playoffs, falling in a hard-fought series against the Chicago Bulls two years ago. The series kicks off today in Toronto at 4:30 p.m. with game two set for 6 p.m. on Tuesday. The series will head to Milwaukee for a pair of games beginning on Thursday.
