The Toronto Raptors have been inconsistent through three games of their first-round playoff series against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bradley Center was throbbing, filled with raucous basketball fans eager to watch one of the NBA's up-and-coming teams.
He wants the Raptors to break the cycle of upping its game after a loss and then relaxing after a win.
Kris Middleton scored 20 points, while Giannis Antetokounmpo added 19 points to power the Bucks to a 104-77 rout of Toronto on Thursday that saw the Raptors dig themselves a first-half hole the size of Wisconsin.
Tony Snell led Milwaukee with 19 points, including five 3-pointers, both playoff career highs. Which is weird because the Raptors are the ones with the playoff experience - each of the players mentioned played in the Conference Finals last season (including newcomer Ibaka, who played in the WCF with Oklahoma City). He's a great player. "Hopefully they can show some love and be loud in Game 4".
Well, right up until Saturday afternoon.
This was supposed to be a series where the playoff hardened Raptors would be tested, but use it more as a tuneup for the Cavs.
Google agrees to pay $335 million in Italy tax dispute
The company made a similar deal with the United Kingdom one year ago, providing $ 185 million to the UK tax authorities. News.com.au reported that Treasurer Scott Morrison was looking to wring billions from Google and other big companies.
"I wish we wouldn't have a stinker before we play that way, but if we can consistently get everybody at their potential level, I think we'll be in good shape".
The Raptors looked frazzled after shooting 4 of 18 in the first quarter. The Bucks allowed the seventh-most three-point attempts per possession this year.
"Our tempo was extremely slow", Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. The Freak went end to end and delivered a vicious jam over DeRozan, the phenom's face contorting into a menacing snarl.
In the usual halftime entertainment during Game 4, the Bucks set up an elaborate rib during a dunk contest with a children's hoop, as an inflatable raptor was brought out as a prop for one little girl's dunk.
This night belonged to Milwaukee.
"We're much better when our backs are against the wall", he said.
"I thought, one, the fans were great here at home, giving us the support from start to finish", he said.

As for the $220 sandals, LaVar says they feel better than the cheaper ones you can get from luxury brands like Gucci and Prada. Get a pair of children's white Curry Two's because you can afford to do that as a joke when you're on the Big Baller budget.
In the second quarter, directly in front of a referee, a frustrated Lowry lashed out with his arm toward Dellavedova's head. Kidd was inserting Monroe earlier in games when Valanciunas was already sucking wind from chasing Thon Maker up and down the court. He managed 8 of his 17 shots.
Canberra point guard Mills bounced back from a rough game two shooting night with 11 points, including sinking three of his five three-pointers. Monroe fouled out with 8:07 left. The Bucks still had some big moments that riled up the crowd as it had on Tuesday - Antetokounmpo intercepting passes or swatting away what looked like an easy Lowry layup.
In other words, the Bucks are playing like a complete unit. They responded Saturday, however, willing their team to victory in an ugly game on the road that was a must-win.
"We were just trying to send as many bodies to him as we possibly could", Casey said.
Gasol hit a 12-foot floater with 0.7 of a second left in overtime, and the Grizzlies beat San Antonio 110-108 in Memphis on Saturday night to even their Western Conference first-round series at 2-2. They had only six field goals at the time.
The mid-range and long-range shots the Bucks gave up simply weren't made by Toronto shooters.
The Bucks shot a high 52.7 percent from the field (39-of-74) and bombarded the Raptors with 12 triples.
