Chris Bosh continued to wear a sleeve on his right knee last night, but the forward said there is no reason for Raptors fans to panic.

"The doctors checked it out and they said it's not that serious," said Bosh, adding there is no need for an MRI after the Raptors lost 110-107 against the Milwaukee Bucks last night at the Air Canada Centre.

The knee swelled up after a game Sunday against the Dallas Mavericks at the ACC. Bosh also had the sleeve on his knee Tuesday night in Cleveland against the Cavaliers.

"It hinders my movement a little bit. It's not that it's painful, it just (doesn't feel right)," Bosh said. I'm aware of it. I don't want it to be pain ... It will be fine."

SPURS THE GOAL

In a few years, Sam Mitchell wants the Raptors to be compared to the San Antonio Spurs.

The Raptors do not have a player who can emulate Tim Duncan, but Mitchell wants his Raptors to match the Spurs' consistency.

"My thing is for us to win and to have a chance to win big and to be a San Antonio, a team that has over the last five years may not have won every championship but has a chance because of the pieces and the people," Mitchell said.

ATHLETIC REPORTERS?

Mitchell enjoyed a bit of a laugh when he saw the media horde surrounding point guard Rafer Alston's dressing room stall before the game last night.

"I've just been informed I've got some new players trying out for the team," Mitchell said. "I understand there are some rebounders in the crowd jockeying for position. So just come on, put your uniform on, let's go we'll have an open tryout for some of you guys."

FAMILY REUNION

The Babcock family was well represented at last night's game. Raptors general manager Rob Babcock and his brother, Pete, the Raptors' director of NBA player personnel, watched their team go against a Bucks team which has brother Dave Babcock working as its director of scouting.

BRIEFLY

The Raptors made a three-pointer for the 500th consecutive game last night. The NBA record is 594, held by the Miami Heat.
