Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks continue to make the Bradley Center a house of horrors for visitors. Desmond Mason scored 20 points to lead five players in double figures as the Bucks cruised to a 98-86 victory over the slumping Toronto Raptors, their 12th win in their last 13 home games. One of the biggest surprises of the NBA season, Milwaukee is 17-5 at home. Mason made 12-of-14 free throws, leading a strong performance from the line. The Bucks sank 24-of-29 foul shots. Mason scored 11 points in the second quarter, helping the Bucks to a 49-41 halftime lead. "It was just fun getting into the open court, getting some lobs and some fast-break points," sais Mason. "I don't think we've been doing that the last few games, but we kind of turned it up tonight." "He (Mason) was great tonight off the bench, he was just really active and did a great job running the lane," Milwaukee coach Terry Porter said. "He's been that way for the last 10 games, playing the way we hoped he'd play." Joe Smith had 13 points and 14 rebounds and Brian Skinner added 16 and nine for the Bucks, who overpowered the Raptors inside, holding a 54-32 scoring edge in the paint. "Whoever gets the ball is trying to be as agressive as possible inside," said Smith. "Everybody was involved. That's something we've been doing when we've been successful." Toronto superstar Vince Carter returned after a three-game absence due to a quadriceps injury but was hassled into 4-of-12 shooting and scored just eight points. "It's one thing to lose," said Carter, "but when you don't come to play and don't show the effort, that is what gets under my skin. We can't go in and get blown out. I'm not saying we were blown out, but there were some things we didn't control as a team." Donyell Marshall scored 17 points for the Raptors (20-21), who matched a season-high four-game losing streak and dropped below .500 for the first time since losing to Milwaukee on November 23. Once again, the Bucks' bench played a key role, outscoring the Raptors' reserves, 45-24. Toni Kukoc scored 13 points and handed out six assists. The Raptors were victims of several crowd-pleasing dunks in the final six minutes. Kukoc fed a cutting Dan Gadzuric, who quickly threw it down in traffic. Just over a minute later, Mason got loose along the right baseline and brought the crowd to its feet with a jaw-dropping dunk that gave Milwaukee a 90-76 lead. "I'm sure he'll rush home and watch Sportscenter tonight becasue he will probably be a candidate for the top 10," said Porter. "We had chances, but then we gave up three highlight-reel dunks in a row," Toronto coach Kevin O'Neill said. "If a guy comes to the rim like that you should knock his (butt) down." Milwaukee is 19-10 vs. the Eastern Conference, including 2-0 against Toronto.
