CHICAGO -- After an emotional win over the Brooklyn Nets two nights before, the Milwaukee Bucks had very little energy left on Friday and lost badly to the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre.
The rampaging Raptors, who currently lead the Eastern Conference standings with at 10-2 record, jumped on the Bucks with a 37-point first quarter spurt. And after pouring in 34 more in the second quarter, Toronto cruised its way to a 124-83 victory.
Kyle Lowry chalked 20 points and nine rebounds and Jonas Valanciunas pitched in 18 points and 12 boards for the Raptors, but it was Lou Williams who did the most damage against the Bucks and scored 22 points off the bench.
The rebounding was also one-sided as the Raptors dominated the boards, 57-30. Toronto made 45 of 86 field goals and sank 15 of 25 three-point shots.
"They embarrassed us. Early on we were a little sluggish. They came out and executed," Bucks forward Jared Dudley told NBA.com after his team dropped to 7-6.
Jabari Parker led the Bucks with 15 points while Ersan Ilyasova had 14. Point guard Brandon Knight added 11 but with only two assists.
Off to their best start in recent years, the Bucks hope to avoid back-to-back losses when they host the tough Washington Wizards at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee.
