TORONTO, ONT (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks remain winless in the New Year, after falling at Toronto last night 116-to-94.  

The Bucks lost their sixth straight, and they dropped out of this one early.  The game was tied at 19 when the Raptors ended the first quarter with a 19-to-5 run go by up 14.

 Toronto led by eight at the half, by 15 early in the third quarter, and by as many as 31 later on.  The Raptors out-shot the Bucks 51-to-42 percent, and out-rebounded Milwaukee 46-40.

 The Bucks did have a scoring edge in the paint 40-to-32.  But the Raptors didn't need to score inside as they hit 24-of-30 free throws -- including all 12 of their shots from the stripe in the first quarter.

 Kyle Lowry led the Raptors with 23 points, as he hit 4-of-5 from downtown.  Former Bucks' guard John Salmons had 10 points off the bench.  Former Marquette guard Steve Novak hit a three which gave the Raptors their biggest lead, on a night when they scored their highest point total of the season.  

Ersan Ilyasova led Milwaukee with a season-high 29 points and nine rebounds.  Bucks' center John Henson returned after missing seven games with a high-ankle sprain.  He had eight points, five rebounds, and four blocked shots.  

The Bucks ended a five-game winning streak at Toronto, as they dropped to 4-and-15 on the road.  Milwaukee is the first N-B-A to lose 30 games, with only seven wins.  They'll host Memphis Wednesday night.
