Whether it’s the stars being aligned, the competition on any given night, the occasional good fortune or favourable bounce, the Raptors continue to find ways to win amid so many stretches of fundamentally poor basketball.

It resurfaced in the opening half Saturday night in Milwaukee against the woeful Bucks, an inferior team that never quits, a period highlighted by weak interior defence and suspect perimeter defending.

Not a good sign when an opponent shoots better than 50% from the floor and score 56 first-half points.
