GAME 66 - March 15, 2016 TORONTO 107, MILWAUKEE 89
Even though leading scorer DeMar DeRozan was given the night off, Kyle Lowry made sure they had little trouble with Milwaukee. Lowry had 25 points and 11 assists, and rookie Norman Powell scored a season-high 17 in a 107-89 victory over the Bucks on Tuesday. Bismack Biyombo, starting for injured center Jonas Valanciunas, had 12 points, 13 rebounds and two big blocks in the decisive third quarter, when Milwaukee missed 16 of 22 shots. Toronto led 81-66 after three, allowing coach Dwane Casey to rest Lowry in the fourth. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 18 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists in 35 minutes for Milwaukee, just missing a triple-double DeRozan, who averages 23.8 points per game, was in uniform but didn't play after starting each of the team's first 65 games and playing 39 minutes in a loss to Chicago on Monday night. Valanciunas was held out as a precaution after bruising his left hand against the Bulls.
Lowry made five of nine shots from the field and 11 of 13 free throws as Toronto won for the fourth time in five games. Toronto won all four games in the season series and swept the Bucks.
- The Toronto Raptors are averaging 108.5 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 105.3 points on 45.8 percent shooting.
- DeMar DeRozan is averaging 30.5 points and 5.2 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 19.7 points and 7.3 assists.
- Jonas Valanciunas is the third double-digit scorer and Terrence Ross is grabbing 2.2 rebounds.

- The Toronto Raptors are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.8 rebounds per game.
- The Toronto Raptors have split their last six road games.
- The rail-thin, multi-faceted Bucks guard is a long seven-footer who often acts as the team’s primary ball-handler. DeRozan and, likely, DeMarre Carroll as well will have to worry about stopping him in transition.
- The Bucks have been idle since beating Orlando on Monday night.
- This wraps up a five-game road trip for Toronto
- The Raptors want to get back to holding opponents under 100 points. Although the Rockets scored 102 points on Wednesday, Toronto was able to limit them to 45 percent shooting.
- Milwaukee is 23rd in the league in points per game, averaging 102.6 points per contest. After giving up 100+ points in their previous nine games, Toronto will be looking to build on the defensive performance they showed in the Rockets win.
