Kawhi Leonard scored 15 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter as Toronto Raptors beat Milwaukee Bucks 105-99, leaving it a win away from advancing to the Finals for the first time in franchise history.

Raptors started Thursday's pivotal game slowly and trailed 46-49 at the half, then kept it tight with the top-seeded Bucks before seizing command late in the fourth quarter to take a 3-2 series lead.

Leonard, who was favouring a sore left leg in game four, played 40 minutes, after putting in 52 minutes in Sunday's double-overtime win by Raptors.

The result:

Toronto Raptors 105 (Kawhi Leonard 35, Pascal Siakam 14, Kyle Lowry 17, Fred VanVleet 21) bt Milwaukee Bucks 99 (Giannis Antetokounmpo 24, Eric Bledsoe 20, Malcolm Brogdon 18, Brook Lopez 16, George Hill 12).

Raptors lead 3-2 .
