Milwaukee: Brandon Jennings, Monta Ellis, Luc Mbah a Moute, Ersan Ilyasova, Larry Sanders
Sanders vs. Johnson
The Bucks big man is a shot-blocking menace — he had one five-game stretch with at least four blocks a game. Johnson and the other Toronto bigs are likely to find it difficult to operate offensively around the rim.
Arguably the biggest game to end the Raptors’ six-game homestand, Milwaukee (18-17) holds down the eighth playoff spot in the East. . . . Bucks and then-coach Scott Skiles parted ways on Jan. 8. Jim Boylan took over and Milwaukee is 2-1 since, losing on Friday night at home to Detroit. . . . Jennings and Ellis make the Bucks offence go, averaging a combined 37 points per game. . . . Milwaukee has swept the season series with Toronto in each of the last two seasons. . . . Toronto’s Landry Fields has 11 rebounds in each of his last two games. . . . Raptors have held their last two opponents to fewer than 80 points and are 14-6 when they keep the opposition under 100.
