"In both cases the locals were skeptical whether we should trust these guys - whether they're buying the team to move the team", Olson said.

Of course, Toronto will counter with Kawhi Leonard.

While there is a long series ahead, it all begins with Game 1. In its only other conference final appearance, Toronto lost to James and Cleveland in six games in 2016. There's also still plenty of tickets available for Milwaukee's other three home games, including almost entire rows in the lower bowl for a potential Game 7.

The Warriors didn't just use man-to-man defense on Lillard and McCollum, they switched defenses on the guards, sometimes using double- and even triple-teams to get the ball out of their hands and aggressively defended him when each player came off screens.
