MILWAUKEE -- The bass was rocking and the BMO Harris Bradley Center was jumping during the annual ritual of introducing the entire roster before the home opener. But for some reason, the Milwaukee Bucks didn't carry any of the juice onto the court.
Sluggish early yet again Saturday, the Bucks fell behind by 13 in the second half and couldn't quite get over the hump after tying the game in the fourth quarter. Toronto crushed Milwaukee on the boards and won 97-90, its first victory over the Bucks since January of 2010.
"It was kind of a weird game," Bucks coach Larry Drew said. "I kind of sensed early we were in for a struggle. We didn't have any energy I anticipated for the home opener. I thought we played pretty sluggish through three quarters. It wasn't until we went with the smaller lineup in the fourth quarter that we began to pick up the pace.
"I don't think we played well enough to win this game. We didn't deserve to win this game....
BEST OF MAXIM
The script looked very familiar, but the Milwaukee Bucks altered the ending this time around.
Just like Wednesday night in New York, the Bucks fell behind by over 20 points only to watch their bench put themselves in a position to win the game late. But unlike against the Knicks, Milwaukee made the plays necessary to win Friday night and walked away from the TD Garden with a 105...
The Bucks might have missed a good advertising opportunity after slip-sliding on their spiffy new court against these same Torontonians during the exhibition season.
Something along the lines of, "We'll fall all over ourselves for you."
Madison Avenue it's not, but the Bucks aren't selling floor wax. They're peddling trust and patience, something this...

Zaza Pachulia is booed heavily every time he steps on the TD Garden floor.
Boston basketball fans have long memories and recall his tussles with former Celtics star Kevin Garnett when Pachulia played for the Atlanta Hawks.
Garnett wasn't in the building Friday night as the new-generation Celtics took the court, but Pachulia was still doing damage as a member of the Milwaukee...
As it has been previously noted before, we here at That NBA Lottery Pick love “poster dunks” and earlier tonight, Raptors star Rudy Gay had a nice one against the Milwaukee Bucks.

With a revamped backcourt, the Milwaukee Bucks entered the season uncertain of where they'd get their offense.
Slow starts and injuries aren't making things much clearer, but the results haven't been all bad as they enter their home opener Saturday night against the Toronto Raptors, a team they've beaten in 10 straight.
The Bucks (1-1) were slow out of the gate...
