Casey Unhappy With Defensive Effort

Quote:
The fact that the Raptors kept on stepping on banana peels the rest of the way trying to contend with the likes of Drew Gooden, Stephen Jackson and Mike Dunleavy was what left a sour taste in the mouth of the Toronto coach.

It amounted to a 105-99 victory by the Bucks over a Toronto team that battled throughout but just continued to make key mistakes at the defensive end at inopportune moments that allowed a winnable game slip through their fingers.

“I just mentioned to the team, we’ve lost that pride of guarding our yard,” Casey said after the game. “What we established in training camp we’ve let slip.

“Again, it’s on me as a coach. It’s on us as a staff of not maintaining it somehow, some way. Lack of practice time, whatever it is we’ve still got to keep instilling that in our guys.”

Casey pointed to the little things on the defensive end that the Raptors are forgetting to do, such as boxing out properly after free throws, as evidence that the defensive mindset the new coaching staff has been preaching all season is not being adhered to by the players.

Casey was also unhappy that Jackson and Dunleavy, both proven NBA scorers, came into the game off the bench and were able to inflict severe damage on the Raptors.

Raptors Game Story

Quote:
THE FACTS: The Milwaukee Bucks (11-14) defeated the Toronto Raptors (8-19) 105-99 in Toronto to capture their fourth road win of the season and halting a three game losing streak.

A highly contested, offensive inspired game saw six Bucks players in double digits, but the catalyst was former Raptor Carlos Delfino who scored a season-high 25 points, grabbed nine rebounds and shot 6-for-8 from the three-point line. Delfino's defense was key as he made one of his three steals in the open court down the stretch on DeMar DeRozan to deny the Raptors a chance of getting their fourth home win (3-7). The Raptors start a franchise tying longest home stand with 6 more successive games to come at the Air Canada Centre.

The Bucks are coming off a 107-105 loss in Phoenix and were in need of a win, while they ended their own three game skid, they gave Toronto their third loss in a row. Drew Gooden contributed 20 points and 14 rebounds, while Mike Dunleavy scored 18 points and Stephen Jackson had 17. DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 25 points, James Johnson added 15 and Jose Calderon scored 9 points with a game high 15 assists.

QUOTABLE: "I'm lucky, it's one of those nights, I should play roulette. I've just been working on my game, tonight I guess I was making shots."
-- Delfino on his 6-for-8, 3-point shooting tonight.

THE STAT: Milwaukee's 11 team blocked shots, the majority of which came when the Raptors needed baskets most, continually having the door slammed shut on their runs. The Bucks defense stepped up when needed and put them over to win the game.

TURNING POINT: Delfino's sixth 3-pointer of the night with 2:52 left in the fourth quarter made it 94-85 and was the beginning of the end. He followed it up a minute later with an open court steal on DeRozan and was fouled, putting him on the free throw line making one of two and widening the margin to 8 points, (97-87).

QUOTABLE II: "Carlos was huge, it was kind of like him and Dunleavy were Siamese twins, Dunleavy had it going in the first half and 'Los got it going in the second half, so that's big."
-- Bucks center Gooden

HOT: Dunleavy is averaging 10.4 points on the season, but exploded with 16 points in the second quarter on 5-for-6 shooting and 3-for-4 from three-point line, leading the Bucks into halftime with a 58-51 lead.

NOT: Brandon Jennings came off a three-point, four-field-goal-attempt performance on Tuesday. Jennings is averaging 19.2 points per game, while taking 16.7 attempts. He got more shots off tonight (3-for-12). He was equally as cold with 11 points, 4 assists and 3 turnovers, while shooting 4-for-8 from the free throw line.

GOOD MOVE: Milwaukee head coach Scott Skiles has not been liking what he has been getting out of his starters of late and went with Stephen Jackson and Dunleavy off the bench for big minutes in the second quarter. The duo delivered, scoring 24 (Dunleavy 16 and Jackson eight points) of the Bucks 30 points for the quarter.

NOTABLE: The Raptors 29 points in the first quarter was a season high. ... Raptors guard Jerryd Bayless left the game in the third quarter with a sore left ankle and did not return. ... The Bucks have won 7 of the last 8 meetings with the Raptors and five in row dating back to last year. ...Toronto led 29-28 after the first quarter for the first time since January 13th vs. Indiana. ...The Bucks have either tied or outscored their opponents in the fourth quarter each of the last 14 games.

UP NEXT: The Raptors continue their home stand Friday vs. Boston, Sunday vs. Lakers and Tuesday vs. New York.
