    Noteworthy
    • The Toronto Raptors return home to host the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday night at Air Canada Centre. The Raptors won two of three meetings with the Bucks last season. Following Sunday’s game, Toronto will play 10 of its next 12 games on the road starting Tuesday at Dallas.
    • With Friday’s victory at Boston, head coach Dwane Casey tied Sam Mitchell’s team record of 156 coaching victoies. The Raptors have improved their overall record in four consecutive seasons (2011-15) under Casey, marking the first time this has happened in team history. Casey has earned 156 victories in 314 games as Raptors coach. Mitchell took 343 games to record his 156th win. Miami’s Erik Spoelstra (2008), Indiana’s Frank Vogel (2011) and Casey (2011) are the longest tenured coaches in the Eastern Conference.
    • Dwane Casey has coached 50 different players during his Toronto tenure. DeMar DeRozan is the only player that has played continuously for Casey since his first season in 2011-12.
    • Toronto’s trio of DeMar DeRozan (25 points), Kyle Lowry (23 points) and Jonas Valanciunas (21 points) started together on opening-night for a fourth consecutive year. According to Elias, it was the first time in over a year that three Raptor starters finished with 20 or more points in the same game. Last: April 4, 2014 vs. Indiana - Terrence Ross (24), Jonas Valanciunas (22) and DeMar DeRozan (20).
    • Kyle Lowry recorded his 1,500th assist as a member of the Raptors Oct. 28 vs. Indiana. He is the fifth player in team history to reach 1,500 assists with the club - Jose Calderon (3,770), Alvin Williams (1,791), Damon Stoudamire (1,761) and Vince Carter (1,553).
    • Through two games, DeMar DeRozan is averaging 24.0 points while shooting .733 (22-for-30) at the free throw line. DeRozan led the team in free throws made and attempted last season, ranking eighth and 12th in the league, respectively. DeRozan shot a career-best .832 percent (361-for-434) from the foul line last year, his fifth consecutive season above 80 per cent.
    • The Raptors have a +25 (103-to-78) rebounding differential after two games. Toronto has collected at least 50 rebounds in back-to-back games, something the team did twice last season (Jan. 19-21 & Nov. 28-30). The Raptors have grabbed 50+ rebounds in three straight games once in team history - Dec. 19-22, 1999. Jonas Valanciunas leads the team with 25 rebounds this season, including a career-high 14 defensive rebounds in the season-opener Oct. 28 vs. Indiana.
    • Toronto has held its opponent to less than 40 per cent shooting from the field in consecutive games (Oct. 28-30) for the first time since Nov. 7-9, 2014. The Raptors were 10-1 last season when opponents shot below 40 per cent from the floor. Through two games, opponents are shooting .374 (64-for-171).
    • Luis Scola signed with the Raptors on July 15 after two seasons with Indiana. Scola was named MVP of the 2015 FIBA Americas Championship after helping Argentina secure a berth at the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Scola averaged 21.1 points and 10.1 in 10 games at the tournament.
    • Former Raptor Greivis Vasquez returns to Toronto for the first time since being dealt to Milwaukee on draft night for the draft rights to the 46th overall selection, Norman Powell. Vasquez averaged 9.5 points, 3.7 assists and 23.1 minutes in 143 career games (34 starts) with the Raptors. He shot .383 (226-for-590) from the field.
    • DeMarre Carroll is shooting .455 (5-for-11) from three-point range after shooting .379 (11-for-29) from beyond the arc in seven preseason games. Carroll posted career bests in three-point field goal percentage (.395) and three-point field goals made (120) with Atlanta last season.

        I think the Bucks are going to miss the playoffs (and I've thought so all summer).

        That said, with their long defenders, this will be a good test if our offence can be varied enough in the event that DD struggles to get to the line. Alternatively, a good test of whether DD can keep up his early performance against longer defenders (and what was an elite defence last year).

        Let's go 3-0 boys!

          What happened to the Bucks defence though?

          They were one of the best defensive teams last year.

                  Cheers I think. It's not like he did anything wrong while he was here. It wasn't his fault that he had to guard Tyreke Evans in the final seconds of a game

                      True but he did embody a lot of what was wrong with last year's team: lack of ball movement, terrible shot selection, horrendous perimeter defence - all without conscience.

                            Lots of fans of Giannas out there but as long as MCW is running the point for the Bucks they are going to struggle. He turned it over 6 times in his first game and 3 times in the second. He is a turnover machine. If we can pressure him and then exploit Grevis's lack of foot speed as others exploited it when he was here (I am sure he didn't get faster over the summer or if he is wearing a green uni) then we should be able to handle the deer tomorrow. First time we don't crack the century mark but the Dinos win one at home before the 4 game road trip begins.
                            And with the 4th overall pick the Toronto Raptors select..... Scottie Barnes.
