Bucks snap Raptors' streak with OT win

Bucks snap Raptors' streak with OT win”

Clearly motivated and determined to get a win against a team that has regularly beaten them in spite of a variety of factors shaping it into one of the East's most exciting rivalries, the Bucks meant business on Friday night.

Heading into the game, Toronto had defeated Milwaukee in 15 of the previous 17 contests dating back to the 2013-14 season.

Antetokounmpo was four assists short of his second consecutive triple-double after getting 36 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists in a loss to Denver before the All-Star break.

The Raptors suffered their first home defeat since falling January 26 to Utah.

"They had a 42-point quarter, and we didn't play well", Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said. The Raptors also had their season-high win streak halted at seven games.

TORONTO - Anunoby 0-1 0-0 0, Ibaka 6-12 4-4 18, Valanciunas 5-7 0-0 10, Lowry 4-12 6-6 17, DeRozan 13-26 5-6 33, Miles 2-8 1-1 7, Siakam 7-10 3-4 17, Poeltl 3-4 2-2 8, VanVleet 2-7 2-2 6, Wright 1-3 1-1 3.

The Rockets were up 79-68 when Butler went down and stretched their lead to as many as 17 points before the third quarter ended.

Celtics 110, Pistons 98 - At Detroit: Kyrie Irving scored 18 points and rookie Daniel Theis added a career-high 19 to lift Boston to a victory over Detroit.

Minnesota would whittle the deficit to nine in the fourth period, but with three minutes remaining, the Rockets had pushed the advantage back to 15 as they cruised home.

Against a team playing as well as the Raptors have this season, down moments were nearly inevitable on Friday night, and instead the question was going to be could Milwaukee rally through them.

Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas slammed down a dunk at the buzzer in regulation to send the game to overtime.

The Raptors trailed 110-108 when swingman C.J. Miles threw in a pass from the sideline to the 7-foot Lithuanian.

"It was flawless", said DeRozan said of Valanciunas' play. "It's great when we could do some misdirection type of things to mix it up".

Valanciunas made a dunk before Antetokounmpo countered on a jumper for a 120-117 lead with 13.1 seconds left.

"We didn't deserve to win", Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. "I'd have to look at it again, but I thought he got fouled on both dunks".

Giannis Antetokounmpo powers the Milwaukee Bucks in snapping the Toronto Raptors' 7-game winning streak.

The Bucks' Jason Terry went to the line to shoot two after being fouled with 0.4 seconds remaining.

Both teams were playing the first game since the National Basketball Association returned from a week-long All-Star break and the rust wore on the Raptors, who shot just 27 per cent from three-point range compared to 50 per cent from Milwaukee.

"It's a big gut-check and a big win for us", Middleton said.
