TORONTO, ONT (WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks came back from a 20-point first quarter deficit yesterday to beat the Raptors in Toronto 107-to-96. The Bucks clawed their way back in the second period, and were down by two at the half.
Milwaukee was down by one with about four minutes left when used an 11-0 run to pull away – and Toronto could get no closer than seven the rest of the way. It was the Raptors' 23rd straight loss when allowing 100 points or more.
Milwaukee out-shot the Raptors 52-to 42 percent. Brandon Jennings had 19 points and 10 assists. John Henson had 19 points and six boards off the bench, as the Bucks are now 3-and-1 under new coach Jim Boylan.
DeMar DeRozan had 23 points for Toronto, which broke a two-game winning streak. It was the Bucks' eighth consecutive victory over the Raptors, and the fifth straight in Toronto's home floor.
The Bucks are on a four-game road trip, and Game-Two is tomorrow night in Los Angeles against the Lakers.
