Kohl & gang have done stellar job keeping Bucks sale secretive. Don't be surprised if new owners have never been mentioned in reports.

Recap | Raptors 110, Bucks 100: Clinched! sbn.to/1iQPgeS

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks can draft no lower than fourth on June 26. They have 25% odds for top pick.

Frank Madden

The next person to talk about a top pick not guaranteeing a championship will get a bottle broken over their heads.

Ted Davis

#MILvTOR Final in Canada Raptors 110 Bucks 100. 1 gm to go and Bucks will have no worse than 4th pick in the Draft. Home vs ATL Wed 7pm.

Charles F. Gardner

It's official. Most pingpong balls belong to Bucks. Toronto 110, Milwaukee 100.

Frank Madden

What percentage of Brandon Knight misses are NOT short/front rim? 5%?

Frank Madden

Jeff Adrien as featured scorer is the NBA's equivalent of Luis Guzman being cast as the next Bond. Illogical, but weirdly enjoyable.

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks mini-run silences the wave, thankfully. Or maybe it was Dwane Casey's timeout. Raptors lead by 9 after Adrien dunk.

Charles F. Gardner

Losing respect for Raptors crowd, now doing the wave. Ugh.

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks lost in seven games to Atlanta that season as sixth seed.

Charles F. Gardner

Bogut injury coming at same stage of season as in 2010 when he suffered gruesome injury that sidelined him for playoffs.

Charles F. Gardner

After 3 quarters: Raptors 84, Bucks 69. Vasquez with 19 and Lowry 18. Adrien and Knight 13 each for Bucks.

Ted Davis

#MILvTOR After 3 in Canada Raptors 84 Bucks 69. 5 quarters left in the season. @1250WSSP.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey staying with his regulars tonight. Raps seeking to beat out Bulls for No. 3 seed in East.

Frank Madden

I wish Knight cut off the ball like Sessions.

Charles F. Gardner

Raptors shooting 10 for 19 on threes and 11 of 24 on twos. Bucks shooting 48.6% overall and have attempted just 2 threes (1 for 2).

Charles F. Gardner

Sixers lead Celtics, 67-50, at halftime.

Charles F. Gardner

No foul called as Adrien goes to basket on final play of half. Bucks cut 21-point lead to 59-46 with 8-0 run at end of quarter.

Ted Davis

#MILvTOR HF time in Ontario the Dinosaurs 59 Bucks 46. Right now Sixers are blowing out Celtics in Philly. @1250WSSP.
