Shorthanded Bucks still top Raptors on road

Forget about being \"better\"; these Bucks have been so good they sometimes defy logic.

Playing with just nine players (eight after O.J. Mayo's ejection), and despite scoring just nine points in the final quarter, the Bucks still beat the Toronto Raptors 82-75 Monday night in Toronto.

The road victory is the Bucks' 15th on the season. Brandon Knight missed the game with quad and hip issues, but Khris Middleton stepped in and scored 25 points. Four Bucks players scored in double figures.

Jason Kidd's bunch extended their lead to 13 points by the end of the third quarter, then held off the Raptors in a bizarre final period that included a Bucks scoring drought of more than eight minutes.
