AUSTRALIAN rookie Thon Maker is still finding his feet at NBA level and experienced the good, the bad and the downright ugly of the playoffs on Wednesday.
Milwaukee pushed Toronto all the way as it sought to take a 2-0 series lead on the road — and at 100-100 with two minutes remaining it was anyone’s game.
But Raptor stars DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry made clutch baskets as Toronto closed the game out 106-100 to level the series at 1-1 as it heads to Milwaukee for games three and four.
Maker played 20 minutes and experienced the full gamut of playoff basketball as he finished with five points on 2/7 shooting, four assists and three rebounds.
There was the good.
