Toronto, ON – Six Bucks scored in double figures, including high 25 points, as Milwaukee knocked off the Toronto 99, at Air Canada Centre on Wednesday.
Linas Kleiza's free throws with 7:12 remaining gave Toronto a one-point lead, but a double technical foul on Kleiza and the Bucks' Larry Sanders set off a 12-2 Milwaukee run to seal the game.
Drew Gooden had his fifth double-double of the season with 20 points and 14 rebounds in the victory. Mike Dunleavy added 18 points, Stephen Jackson had 17, Brandon Jennings scored 11 and Luc Mbah a Moute netted 10 for the Bucks.
Dunleavy scored 16 of his 18 points in the second quarter, and Delfino had 17 of his 25 in the second half.
"We got out to a good start in the first half. Got a little behind defensively in the second half," said Gooden. "Carlos did a job picking up for us where Mike left off in the first half."
DeMar DeRozan paced the Raptors with 25 points, including 4-of-6 three-point shooting. James Johnson contributed 15 points and Kleiza and Leandro Barbosa added 12 and 11, respectively, off the bench for Toronto, which fell to 3-7 at home this season.
"They've got the No. 1 bench in the NBA in scoring. They played hard," said Johnson. "They came with a lot of energy."
Gooden picked up 13 of his points in the first quarter, but a balanced Raptors attack had them up 29-28 at the buzzer.
Dunleavy picked up where Gooden left off and then some in the second quarter, dropping 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting, including 3-of-4 from three-point range.
