The Milwaukee Bucks are on the ropes in the Eastern Conference finals, but Giannis Antetokounmpo says the team is "not gonna fold."

The Raptors defeated the Bucks, 105-99, in Milwaukee Thursday night to take a 3-2 lead in the series. After winning the first two games, Milwaukee is searching for answers after dropping three straight. After Thursday night's loss, a reporter mentioned to Antetokounmpo it seemed the Celtics folded in the fifth and final game of their East semifinal series against Milwaukee, but the Bucks star quickly cut off any comparison.

"We're the best team in the league, man. We're not gonna fold," Antetokounmpo said. "We're going to come back to Milwaukee being pissed.

"You cannot fold. You've got to go out there and give it everything you've got. … we're not going to fold as a team."

Antetokounmpo had 24 points, six rebounds and six assists in Thursday's loss. He tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter and briefly left the game before returning.

"I think we had a chance to win the game today, but we didn't," Antetokounmpo said. "Obviously, I'm pissed. I'm not going to lie to you. You've just got to keep your head up, keep believing in yourself, keep having that confidence.

"We've got two more games to go, and we can do this."

Game 6 is Saturday in Toronto at 8:30 p.m. ET.
