Trudeau 'extremely excited' about Toronto Raptors, says son is massive fan

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel rounded up social-media reaction to the rapper, under the headline "Milwaukee totally hates Drake, who doesn't own the Raptors but is somehow allowed to freely roam the court".

The Raptors held a three-point lead with less than 24 seconds left in the game, and went to inbound the ball. Fiserv Forum was a bowl of rolling thunder, and despite all the Raptors had done to that point to recover from getting speed-bagged by the Bucks to open the first and third quarters, they still needed to close the game out. So out of sheer necessity, Budenholzer then had the Bucks double and even triple team Leonard, to which he found Marc Gasol up top and Fred VanVleet twice in each corner for a trio of 3s. Pascal Siakam had 14 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.

He was there to see his girlfriend and son get discharged on Thursday morning, drove back to Milwaukee in the afternoon, had a nap and "and laced them up again here for Game 5". Not unlike Leonard's magical four-bouncer to win Game 7 against Philadelphia, the ball behaved admirably for Toronto down the stretch.

Now, the Bucks head into more uncharted territory: trailing heading into Game 6 on the road.

It's been a rather rapid turnaround in public opinion since then. Plus, Drake wouldn't be in attendance to give Nick Nurse shoulder rubs, much to the dismay of Mike Budenholzer, I imagine.

That faith was repaid in spades Thursday night. "Superstar. Superstar", Kyle Lowry said of Leonard after the game.

Such shots are all in good fun, says Weber, who detects no out-of-bounds jabs despite the sometimes heated exchanges. Great game by him though.

The bounce that was missing in his step in Game 4 was mostly back in Game 5.

It was Leonard's 11th 30-plus performance for the Raptors, who took a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals with their historic win. We're gonna go in, give it everything we got.

'American Taliban' to be released from prison Thursday
John Lindh, 38, was released Thursday from the federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, according to the federal Bureau of Prisons. Lindh's plea deal called for a 20-year sentence, but he's getting out a few years early for good behaviour.

"He couldn't wait for the playoffs to get here", Nurse said.

"I think they were throwing bodies at him early".

The feud could come to an end tomorrow night (May 25) when the Raptors and Bucks play Game 6 at home.

The team that wins game five of a series tied 2-2 wins the series 84% of the time.

Brogdon has been a starter for most of his career. Green ended the game scoreless.

"It's fantastic, man. You're watching a superstar".

Even with the contact that sent Lowry to the floor, a foul wasn't called.

He never did find that offensive rhythm but three blocks, 13 rebounds and some stellar defensive work were extremely valuable contributions.
