The Bucks lost. The Raptors won, 110-100.
The outcome was much like every other game this year, and the game was eerily similar to the Bucks loss to Toronto on 102-98 on April 5th. In that game, Greivis Vasquez led all scorers with 26 points behind a strong 6-8 behind the arc. Tonight he led all scorers with 25 points behind a strong 5-9 behind the arc.
The Raptors are trying to stay in front of the Bulls in the race for third in the East. The Bucks, meanwhile, don’t have to worry about any race. Tonight guaranteed them the worst record in the NBA.
Vasquez had 7 assists to go with his stellar shooting. Tyler Hansbrough (12pts/11rebs) and Jonas Valanciunas (14pts/13rebs) both double-doubled. Pretty much the entire Raptors roster had a nice night statistically.
John Henson was a bright spot for the Bucks again, looking active en route to 12 points and 7 assists on just 8 shots. He got in a spat with Valanciunas that earned him a technical. The technical thing is usually bad, but with Henson it’s good to see some fire.
Brandon Knight got right back at it after a hip injury kept him of the last game. He played 43 minutes in his return and has 18 points to show for it.
The last game of the season is at home against the Hawks on Wednesday. Sigh.
