POUND THE ROCK STARS OF THE NIGHT - BUCKS 105, RAPTORS 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, RAPTORS 99    SEASON RECORD: 13W-28L

POUND THE ROCK STAR #1: JERRYD BAYLESS
LINE:  16 pts (7-13), 6 ast, 2 reb
It was a better effort from the Raps last night but they still walked away with another loss.  The Raps were without Jose Calderon (ankle), which meant more minutes for Jerryd Bayless last night.  Bayless played 41 minutes and scored 16 points on 7-13 shooting.  He also dished out six assists as Bayless filled in nicely for the injured Calderon.


POUND THE ROCK STAR #2: DEMAR DEROZAN
LINE:  21 pts (9-22), 5 reb, 3 ast
Again, DeMar didn't shoot the ball well as he scored 21 points on 22 shots but he led the Raps in scoring.  He's offensive game is starting to come around again, especially with Andrea back in the lineup.  DeMar is averaging 21.5 ppg over his last five games.

POUND THE ROCK STAR #3: ANDREA BARGNANI
LINE:  11 pts (4-10), 2 ast, 8 reb
Bargnani's easing his way back into the lineup, scoring 11 pts in 30 minutes but more importantly, the eight boards was a good sign.  Injuries have been hurting the Raps, to have Bargnani back but then lose Calderon with the ankle injury.... it's just been a revolving door of injuries this season.

SHOUTOUTS TO THE BUCKS:
ERSAN ILYASOVA
LINE: 31 pts (11-16), 12 reb, 2 stl
Ilyasova was a beast for the Bucks, hitting shots from all over the place.  3-3 from beyond the arc, 6-6 from the FT line and 11-16 from the floor.  If you own him in fantasy, you're loving these stat lines.
