POUND THE ROCK STARS OF THE NIGHT - BUCKS 105, RAPS 99

POUND THE ROCK STARS - On a nightly basis, no matter how good or bad the Raps play, no matter if they blow out a team or if they get blown out and no matter if they win or lose, these are the Raptors with the best 'Pound the Rock' status for the night.

FINAL SCORE:  BUCKS 105, RAPS 99     SEASON RECORD: 8W-19L

POUND THE ROCK STAR #1: DEMAR DEROZAN
LINE:  25 pts (9-18), 4-6 3pt, 4 reb
DeMar's been working on that three ball this season.  And it showed last night.  DeMar nailed 4 triples in the 105-99 loss, going 4-6 from three and 9-18 from the floor.  Offensively, it was an amazing showing by the Compton kid...but the downfall was on the defensive end, and for proof... just check out Carlos Delfino's line below.

POUND THE ROCK STAR #2: JOSE CALDERON
LINE:  9 pts, 15 ast, 2 stl
15 dimes is the stat that sticks out for Jose...  After struggling in the previous two games, Jose returned to his regular self and got the ball to the hot shooters.  And... he only turned the ball over once.

POUND THE ROCK STAR #3: JAMES JOHNSON
LINE:  15 pts (7-11), 7 reb, 2 stl, 3 blk
A good offensive night for James Johnson is just a bonus.  He hustles on D, but when his shots are falling, dude, look out. 



SHOUTOUTS TO THE BUCKS:

CARLOS DELFINO
LINE: 25 pts (7-12), 6-8 3 pt, 9 reb, 4 stl
A classic case of a former Raptor taking it to his old team.  Delfino had a field day from three-point land, going 6-8 from beyond the arc.  25 points...season-high nine rebounds and a whopping four steals.  That Delfino performance hurt.

Next up for the Raps: vs BOS
