After facing a raucous crowd at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, the Toronto Raptors needed to get their fans charged up for Game 5 of their series against the Bucks.
Using an aerial assault definitely helped set the tone.

A ferocious dunk by Raps forward Serge Ibaka had the fans frenzied in the games opening minutes.
It didn’t take long for the 27-year-old Ibaka to reignite the Air Canada Centre with another vicious slam that was part of a 17-0 first-quarter run.
Not to be outdone, Raptors All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan kept the high-flying act going in the second quarter with a coast-to-coast dunk that had everyone on their feet.
Yet, possibly the highlight of the air show was saved for last.
A pair of violent slams by Norman Powell late in the fourth quarter was the exclamation point on the Raptors 118-93 victory, as the 23-year-old Powell capped off a career playoff performance scoring a career high 25 points — his last four points coming in style.

Nothing is quite as electric as a slam dunk.
