The Milwaukee Bucks fall to the Toronto Raptors without Giannis Antetokounmpo in the lineup.

Antetokounmpo was ruled out hours before the game due to an oral surgery.

The Toronto Raptors were also short-handed without Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, and Serge Ibaka.

As a result, Pat Connaughton was placed into the starting lineup for the Bucks. Connaughton recorded 12 points and 5 rebounds, shooting 4-8 from the field.

Kyler Korver was the leading scorer for Milwaukee.  He finished with 19 points, shooting 5-6 from the field in 23 minutes. Korver was hot from beyond the arc in the first half, shooting 4-4 from three.

Khris Middleton also scored 17 points, shooting 6-12 from the field.

The Bucks now look to rebound from this loss by preparing for the Washington Wizards.  Tip-off is set for 8:00 pm. Make sure to tune in to the Pick N' Save Pro Hoops Postgame Show after the game for the best Bucks coverage.
