TORONTO (AP) -- DeMar DeRozan scored 21 points, Andrea Bargnani had 17 and the Toronto Raptors won their fourth straight exhibition game Monday night, beating the Milwaukee Bucks 104-95.
Monta Ellis scored 26 points for the Bucks and Mike Dunleavy had 21. Milwaukee has lost four straight, all by fewer than 10 points.
Brandon Jennings had 10 assists but made just three of 15 shot attempts and scored six points.
Ellis cut it to 94-92 on a jumper with 1:50 left, but Toronto's Kyle Lowry replied with a 3-pointer. Lowry scored 15 and was one of six Raptors to reach double figures.
Bucks forward Larry Sanders stayed home for what coach Scott Skiles called disciplinary reasons. Rookie guard Terrence Ross (flulike symptoms) was Toronto's only absentee.

Toronto Raptors center/forward Amir Johnson is apparently something of a zombie buff, as evidenced by the fact that his favorite television show is The Walking Dead. In fact, his affinity for zombies goes so far that he participated in a “Zombie Walk” through the streets of Toronto on Saturday. Unfortunately, being 6-foot-9 causes an aspiring zombie [...]
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings were just 22 games into their career together, one portion of a lockout-shortened season, when Ellis turned up at Jennings' apartment door a few days before the start of this year's training camp.
Ellis lives in the apartment directly below Jennings, and the two have gotten progressively closer since Ellis' return from...

John Lucas III is most notable for being “that guy” that LeBron James ‘leap-frogged’ over, but with plays like the one below, he may become known for something else. Lucas plays for the Toronto Raptors — and may not get a ton of burn considering Kyle Lowry and Jose Calderon get the bulk of point [...]The post John Lucas III Buzzer-Beating Three-Pointer (Video) appeared...

So it is coming down to the end of October and the Toronto Raptors are 5-1. Big deal? Not really, if they were 5-1 mid way through November, that would be a story. But we gotta remain positive right? It is better than 1-5 and there seems to be new hope around the Raptors. Or [...]
MILWAUKEE With four straight preseason losses after an encouraging 2-0 start, the Milwaukee Bucks are feelinga sense of urgency.
And their coach, Scott Skiles, isn't shy about recognizing his team's poor performance of late.
"One of the things that have to happen if you want to get better or improve at anything, you've got to be realistic as well," Skiles...
The Toronto Raptors acquired Kyle Lowry this offseason to become their starting point guard, thus replacing Jose Calderon. He was brought over from Houston in hopes that he could provide more offensive punch in their backcourt than what they had last season.
He had a very good season last year, averaging over 14 points, 6 assists, and 1.6 steals per game. He brings aggression to...
In the midst of plenty of uncertainty regarding the future of the Milwaukee Bucks franchise and the arena in which it calls home, the BMO Harris Bradley Center announced on Monday that it has reached an agreement with the Bucks on a six-year lease, set to run through September 30, 2017, according to a report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The agreement is the first multi-year...
The Milwaukee Bucks have a lot of new faces this season. And a lot of new size.
Star center Andrew Bogut is gone but the Bucks don't have to worry about their front line. Milwaukee now has six players who are at least 6-foot-10, including newcomers Samuel Dalembert and Joel Przybilla.
They will join star guard Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, who joined the team in March....
Terrence Ross and Quincy Acy will receive more minutes for the Raptors over the final two preseason games.
The Toronto Raptors announced Monday they have waived guard Jerel McNeal and forward Chris Wright. McNeal saw action in one preseason game, and Wright did not play in any of the six preseason games. McNeal played in Italy last year, and Wright averaged 2.9 points while playing 24 games for Golden State last season.
Take a simple glance at the Bucks' contract situation, the team's past records and the make-up of their roster, and it's abundantly clear this is a turning point season in Milwaukee.
Coach Scott Skiles and general manager John Hammond are both on the last year of their deals, and the previous four have been a struggle more often than not. Point guard Brandon Jennings...
