College of Sports Media Game of the Night:
Already this season the Toronto Raptors have had to deal with nine back-to-back games. Unfortunately, they haven’t been that successful with the back end game – their record is 2-7. Last night the Toronto Raptors hung in with the best in the East, but eventually dropped a 108-100 decision to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Chris Bosh and Andrea Bargnani led the team in scoring, but unfortunately the rest of the team couldn’t come through when the Cav’s D clamped down on the two forwards. Hedo Turkoglu continues to struggle and last night was no exception. Turkoglu had more fouls (4) then points (3 – which also equaled his turnover total). Tonight the Raps are in Milwaukee to battle the Bucks. Milwaukee is hoping they can take advantage of a tired Toronto squad. The Bucks are coming off a six game road trip where they went 1-5, including a 101-98 overtime loss to the Houston Rockets on Monday. The last time Toronto made the trip into Brew City was on a back-end game and it resulted in a 117-95 loss. Brandon Jennings was electric scoring 22 points and a tough cover for the Raptors guards. Tonight Jerry Stackhouse will make his first star in a Bucks uni. Stackhouse was signed to fill the gap left by a major knee injury to Michael Redd. Stackhouse played limited minutes for the Dallas Mavericks last season and was bought out by the Memphis Grizzlies in the offseason.
