TORONTO, ONT (WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks lost their fourth straight exhibition game last night, 104-to-95 at Toronto. The Bucks were up by three going into the final period, but they couldn’t hold on.
Starting point guard Kyle Lowry had 10 points in the final five minutes, as the Raptors improved to 5-and-1 in the pre-season. Lowry ended up with 15 points, six assists, and five rebounds – and he’s expected to be a valuable addition for Toronto after he was traded there from Houston this summer.
Monta Ellis led all scorers with 26 for Milwaukee. The Bucks only shot 40-percent from the floor, and the Raptors shot 45-and-a-half percent. Milwaukee was also out-rebounded 49-40.
The Bucks were without forward Larry Sanders, who was suspended by the team for one game – apparently due to a skirmish in Saturday night’s Milwaukee loss to Washington.
Milwaukee is now 2-and-4 in the pre-season. They’ll play at Charlotte on Thursday.
