Bosh, Raptors end road losing streak, cruise by Bucks

Jan 11, 2007 - 5:04 AM MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Chris Bosh and the Toronto Raptors took advantage of the injury-depleted Milwaukee Bucks.

Bosh scored 30 points and tied his career high with six blocks to lead the Raptors to a 90-77 victory over the Bucks.

Anthony Parker scored 18 points and T.J. Ford added 15 and 10 assists for Toronto, which faced a Milwaukee team that was missing three of its top four scorers.

"Every win you get is good," Ford said. "We've been in the same situation they're in and nobody felt sorry for us. I'm not feeling sorry for anybody."

Bosh shot 11-of-16 from the field and rookie Andrea Bargnani added 11 points off the bench for the Raptors, who shot 44 percent (32-of-73) and snapped a three-game road losing streak.

"Me and Bosh got together and talked and we've got to come out and be aggressive," Ford said. "Every night, people know we carry the team. We can't have people shut us down."

The injury-riddled Bucks were without Michael Redd (strained knee tendon), Mo Williams (sprained left shoulder) and Charlie Villanueva (right shoulder) and lost a season high-tying fourth straight game.

"The Bucks are trying to adjust to a lot of guys being out, their first and second options," Parker said. "It puts pressure on other guys. Milwaukee still gave a good effort."

Redd, the NBA's sixth leading scorer (27.7), is out up to six weeks after injuring his knee Friday vs. Cleveland. Williams, Milwaukee's second-leading scorer (17.3) suffered his ailment Monday in a loss to Denver and is expected to miss up to three weeks.

Villanueva, who has missed his last four games, will be out at least one more week.

Ruben Patterson and Andrew Bogut each scored 17 points for the Bucks, who have dropped six of their last nine home games to the Raptors.

Bogut also grabbed a career-high 18 rebounds for Milwaukee, which shot 42 percent (32-of-76).
