Milwaukee Bucks Team Report – January 24

=== Milwaukee Bucks Team Report – January 24 ===

(Sports Network) – Desmond Mason made 12-of-14 free throws and converted 4-
of-6 shots for a game-high 20 points, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 98-86
win over Toronto at the Bradley Center.

Joe Smith notched a double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds, as the Bucks
won for the 12th time in their last 13 home dates. Brian Skinner posted 16
points and collected nine boards.

Leading by six, Mason converted two free throws, Tim Thomas made a layup, and
Damon Jones drained a three on consecutive possessions to put the Bucks up
79-68 with nine minutes left in the game.

The Raptors got within nine on two occasions after that, but that was the
closest they would come the rest of the game. Milwaukee led by as much as 15
in the final five minutes to put the game out of reach.

Milwaukee, which has won nine of its last 12 overall, heads back to the court
on Monday against the San Antonio Spurs.
