The Toronto Raptors did what they were expected to do the last time they played the Milwaukee Bucks by going on the road and pulling off the 116-94 win. The Raptors shot the ball very well in the game, making 50.6% of their shots and knocking down 12 of their 23 three-point attempts. The win gave the Raptors eight wins in ten games, while the Bucks dropped their sixth straight.
Toronto started the game hot and were able cruise most of the way toward their 19th win of the season. They outscored the Bucks 38-24 in the first quarter and took a 58-50 lead into the half. It was much of the same in the second half, with the Raptors outscoring the Bucks by seven points in each of the last two quarters to take the easy 20-point win.
DeMar DeRozan had a solid all-around game for Toronto with 19 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in the win. Center Jonas Valanciunas posted a double-double for the hosts with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Patrick Patterson came off of the bench to score 18 points.
The Bucks certainly can't blame their power forward Ersan Ilyasova for that loss. The Turkish veteran put up a game-high 29 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the loss. He made 11 of his 16 shots in the game, including going 3-for-3 from three-point land.
