The Bucks were pummeled on the glass in Game 5 with the Raptors outrebounding them by 40-23. While Milwaukee won points in the paint 44-40, it certainly felt like the Raptors' baskets inside came much easier and were more impactful.

Norman Powell threw down a monstrous one-handed dunk like he was one of those in-game entertainment dunkers jumping off a trampoline. He also had another dunk in between the long arms of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker. Powell exploded for a team-high 25 points to go with 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals. "He's been ready to go and locked in," Kyle Lowry told NBA TV after the game of Powell. "And now he is showing his skills on the biggest stage."

The Hawks' bench has provided a major spark for Mike Budenholzer. Atlanta's subs have outscored Washington's bench, 24-12, in the first half. Kent Bazemore is having his best game of the series with 10 points, 5 assists and 2 steals in the first half alone. Jose Calderon has drilled a couple of 3's with Dwight Howard helping open things up for the Hawks' offense with 14 points and 11 rebounds in the first half.

Kent Bazemore is picking up the play-making slack with Dennis Schroder saddled with three fouls. Bazemore has five assists, including a thunderous alley-oop to Dwight Howard. Howard is finally making his presence felt in this series with 13 points and 8 rebounds. He's not only active on the glass but he's muscling the Wizards in the paint, something Paul Millsap will surely welcome. Now Marcin Gortat has to deal with Howard and Millsap on the glass.

Dwane Casey's move to start Norman Powell has paid huge dividends. Powell has followed up a 12-point effort in Game 4 with 21 points in three quarters thus far in Game 5. Powell has made all four of his 3-point attempts and he's given the Raptors offense a new weapon while Milwaukee's Khris Middleton continues to struggle with only eight points.

Mike Budenholzer's point guards are in foul trouble. Dennis Schroder and Jose Calderon have three personal fouls midway through the second quarter. The Hawks have had issues with solid backup point guard play so Bud will keep Calderon in with Schroder on the bench.
