LIVE: Raptors could go up a size in big Game 2 matchup against Bucks

MILWAUKEE—The Raptors have a big task ahead of them in Game 2 of the NBA Eastern Conference championship and may go with a big lineup at times to meet it.

Coach Nick Nurse said he was likely to use an all-centre frontcourt of Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka for longer stretches of the second game of the best of seven series with Toronto already trailing the Milwaukee Bucks 1-0.

The Raptors could use the additional size at times to keep themselves in the rebounding game and not give up as many second-chance points at they did in Game 1.

Other than that, the only change for the Raptors is to play as well as they did in losing Game 1 108-100 — but for longer. Toronto had an early 13-point lead in that game and was tied with about two minutes to go before fading down the stretch.

Game 3 is Sunday at 7 p.m. in Toronto.
