  • F: Pascal Siakam
  • C: Marc Gasol

Head coach Nick Nurse did not make any adjustments for Game 5 as he rolls with the same starting lineup he's had for the entire postseason. In 69 minutes in this series, the Raptors starters have been outscored by 13 points and were minus-5 in the Game 4 win.

The starters have played 302 minutes together this postseason, outscoring teams by 81 points over that span. No other 5-man combination has played over 50 minutes for the Raptors.

  • G: Eric Bledsoe
  • G: Khris Middleton
  • G: Malcolm Brogdon
  • F: Giannis Antetokounmpo
  • C: Brook Lopez

Head coach Mike Budenholzer opted to make a change for Game 5, going with a third guard in Malcolm Brogdon in place of forward Nikola Mirotic, a great shooter that's struggled through four game in this series. Mirotic is shooting 21% from beyond the arc this series, down from 36% over the first two rounds of the postseason.

The lineup of Brogdon plus the other four holdovers have played a total of just 10 minutes together so far in this series but have outscored the Raptors by 10 points in that small sample.
