rapsbucks300_2

MILWAUKEE (CP) — Monta Ellis did it — again.

Ellis scored six of his 23 points in overtime and Ersan Ilyasova and Brandon Jennings added five apiece in the extra period to spark the Milwaukee Bucks to a 122-114 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night.

Ellis was the star of the Bucks’ 110-107 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. He scored 27 points, but it was his last shot, a 3-pointer at the buzzer, that sealed the win.

Against Toronto, Ellis was 9 of 18 from the floor ...

Raptors Drop Third Straight With Loss To Pacers

rapspacers200_030113

The Toronto Raptors saw the kind of effort it takes to make the NBA’s playoffs on Friday _ the Indiana Pacers showed them how it’s done.

The Pacers ratcheted up the tempo offensively in the second half and clamped down on the defensive end as they put the game almost out of reach with a quarter left to play.

“That’s the level we’ve got to get ready for,” said Raptors head coach ...

Raptors Can’t Hold Lead In Road Loss To Cavaliers

CLE_rudy300_022713

CLEVELAND (CP) — Kyrie Irving isn’t the only Cavaliers guard with killer instinct on the court.

When the game’s on the line, Dion Waiters wants the spotlight — and the ball.

“I live for that,” the rookie said.

The Cavs made only one of their first 15 shots, but recovered ...

TORONTO (CP) — With just 25 games left in the regular season, and the Toronto Raptors trying to claw their way into a playoff spot, there is no room for coasting.

Dwane Casey knows it, and he definitely let his players know it after the Raptors’ ugly 90-84 loss at home Monday to the Washington Wizards — the worst road team in the NBA.

“It was a stinker. They whupped us, they outworked us,” Casey said. “We tried to turn it on, turn it off. They got us. They kicked our ...

Raptors Prevail In Close Win Over Knicks

gay022213_1

TORONTO (CP) — His tenure in Toronto may be just 10 games old, but Rudy Gay is making Raptors fans forget all about the players he replaced.

The Raptors are 7-3 since the deal that brought Gay to Toronto from Memphis three weeks ago.

“You can give him the ball, he’s a guy who ...
