Dead even

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - The Toronto Raptors closed ranks around hurting star Kawhi Leonard, turning in a total team effort in a 120-102 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday to level the NBA Eastern Conference finals.

The good news for the Aces though is that the Batang Pier are likely to play without Pringle, and two others – Garvo Lanete and Bradwyn Guinto – because on injuries. Jarencio confirmed that Pringle is down with foot injury, Lanete is nursing a sprained ankle and Guinto has just undergone knee surgery.
