Raptors' Rapid Recap - Milwaukee 113 - Toronto 107

-Back-to-backs continue to be the bane of the Toronto Raptors' existence as they drop yet another this evening, this time 113 to 107 to the Bucks.

-This one was in the realm of the Pacers loss in terms of frustration for Dino fans; not because of a monumental collapse following a large lead, but because Chris Bosh set a career-high in points with 44, and yet got essentially no help from anyone else on the evening.

-There's plenty of blame to go around here though.  The team gave up 17 offensive rebounds and did a terrible job overall on the glass. Plus they allowed the Bucks to shoot nearly 50 per cent from beyond the arc.  Individually things weren't pretty either.  Outside of Bosh, the team shot 39 per cent from the field and Andrea Bargnani had his worst game in weeks scoring only 10 points to go with 4 rebounds on 4 of 13 shooting.  Only Jose Calderon (16 points and 5 assists) and Amir Johnson (10 points and 7 rebounds in 22 minutes) gave Toronto any sort of lift, and inexplicably, with the game neck-and-neck late in the fourth, Jay Triano pulled Johnson in favour of Bargs.

The result?

A 7-0 run by the Bucks which ostensibly ended things.

-My favourite whipping boy Hedo Turkoglu hit a few big shots in the fourth quarter but was once more far too invisible throughout the game.  He finished 13 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists but was a horrific 5 of 14 from the field.  On top of this, the player he was assigned to guard for most of the game, former Raptor Carlos Delfino, was huge for Milwaukee in the win posting 22 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and a steal.

-Also big for Milwaukee?  Andrew Bogut did whatever he wanted before fouling out late (27 points, 12 rebounds) and the point guard combo of Brandon Jennings and Luke Ridnour dropped 27 points on Toronto.

-This is another tough loss to swallow for fans considering Bosh's play but Toronto has a chance to exact revenge this Friday when Milwaukee pays Toronto a vist.  In the meantime, hopefully Bosh gets a solid day of rest.
