MILWAUKEE - Those long faces that left the floor in Atlanta in Raptors uniforms didn’t make the trip to Wisconsin.

Neither did a lot of the bad habits that created those long faces.

For the first time in the 2013-14 season, the Raptors have a game with which they can be mostly happy about.

Yes, they got the opener at home against Boston but other than the result there was little to take from it in the way of building a team’s confidence.

The loss in Atlanta was almost unbearable for a handful of the Raptors. Rudy Gay, in particular, was ready to claw someone’s eyes out.

So it was a crusty group of Raptors that arrived in Milwaukee and the squad took it out on a Milwaukee Bucks team that was game, but couldn’t match the visitors in the compete department.

The Raptors improved to 2-1 with a 97-90 victory that featured a lot of improvement in a lot of different areas.
