Giannis Antetokounmpo says the three areas he wants to improve on this summer: becoming a more vocal leader with age, adding strength and developing his 3-point shot.

Giannis Antetokounmpo on going for a dunk instead of a 3 after milking a little too much of the clock down three late: "We were looking for a 3," the Bucks forward said. "I was supposed to go a little bit earlier (for two if he had to). I was supposed to go earlier if I didn't have the 3."

Jason Kidd said he went with Jason Terry and Matthew Dellavedova down the stretch for their veteran championship experience over a rookie like Malcolm Brogdon. Kidd, though, told several of his young players like Brogdon after the loss to learn from this experience and remember just how hard it is to win a game and series like this. "It was a great character game," Kidd said. "That just shows they are maturing and they didn't give up. Those guys were tired. Both teams were tired... For our younger players this was a great learning experience."

Jason Kidd points to one stat that decided the game -- the Bucks missing nine free throws in the fourth quarter. "For us when we look at it it just comes down to free throws," Kidd said. "We don't have to over-analyze."

Dwane Casey says he loves that people doubt Toronto or may say, "same old Raptors." Casey liked what he saw and said other teams he's coached likely would've fell apart after blowing a 25-point lead in a hostile environment. "I loved our resiliency," Casey said. "I loved that we didn't cave in... We found a way to scratch and (come) through."
