(SportsNetwork.com) - DeMar DeRozan has quietly coasted under the radar as one of the NBAs consistent scorers and will try to lead the Toronto Raptors to a perfect three-game homestand Monday versus the lowly Milwaukee Bucks. You can watch the game live on TSN at 7pm et/4pm pt. and listen live on TSN Radio 1050. DeRozan is averaging 22.3 points per game in his last nine and leads the Raptors with 21.3 ppg this season. He had 26 points in Saturdays 96-80 victory over the Brooklyn Nets and made 9-of-18 shots to go along with seven rebounds and five assists. Patrick Peterson ended with 14 points and 12 rebounds off the bench, Terrence Ross scored 14 points and John Salmons added 13 in a reserve role for Toronto, which has won seven of nine and 11 of its last 15 games. The Atlantic Division-leading Raptors ended Brooklyns season-high five-game winning streak. "Brooklyn is a tough team. Their defense is their strength. During their winning streak it was their defense that has helped them more than their offense," said Raptors coach Dwane Casey. Toronto has won four in a row at home and is 8-8 at Air Canada Centre. Milwaukee has the worst record in the NBA at 7-29 and is mired in a five-game losing streak. It suffered its third straight road loss in Saturdays 101-85 defeat at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Luke Ridnour and O.J. Mayo scored 16 points apiece off the bench, while Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brandon Knight both had 13 points. Antetokounmpo also grabbed 11 rebounds and handed out five assists for the Bucks, who dropped to 4-15 as the guest and shot 39.5 percent. The Thunder recorded a 39-27 advantage in the third quarter and were led by NBA leading scorer Kevin Durant, who posted 33 points, 10 boards and seven assists. Serge Ibaka also had a double-double with 17 points and 17 rebounds. "It got away in the third quarter. I thought defensively we had some breakdowns and against a good team you just cant do that," said Bucks coach Larry Drew. "Offensively our shot selection wasnt very good and we didnt move the ball very well." Milwaukee hopes big man John Henson can return from an ankle injury Monday and is questionable against the Raptors. Henson is averaging 12.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks, and hasnt played since Dec. 27 at Brooklyn. The Bucks sustained a 97-90 loss at home to the Raptors on Nov. 2, as DeRozan scored 17 points and Mayo tallied 16. Milwaukee had won the previous 10 matchups with Toronto until that recent setback and is still a dominant 14-3 in the previous 17 meetings between the teams. Milwaukee is unbeaten in its last five games north of the border. Adidas NMD Discount . - Playing a road game against a division rival raises the intensity for linebacker Clay Matthews.

Fake NMD R2 . And all things considered, the first 40 games have offered a little bit of everything from a hockey club that faced many questions in its first year under new management, with a new head coach and with a number of new faces in the lineup. However, with a recent dip in scoring, it seems some of the same old questions persist and several new ones have been raised after a somewhat troubling homestand. Best Fake NMD Human Race . The 25-year-old native of Milford, Conn., has 18 points in 41 games this season. The five-foot-eight 166-pound centre also has 28 points (10-18) in 15 games with AHL Oklahoma City.PHILADELPHIA – Restructuring the Toronto defence was primary in the objectives of Maple Leafs management as they strode into the busiest stage of a lengthy offseason. And on the final day of draft weekend, they took the first step toward doing just that. Carl Gunnarsson, selected with the 194th overall pick at the draft in Columbus seven years earlier, was dealt to St. Louis on Saturday morning for thick Czech defenceman and longtime Blue, Roman Polak. He is the first addition to a roster that promised to change following another late season meltdown. Adjustment to a mismatched and ineffective back-end was a must for the Leafs, who finished near the league basement defensively last season – yielding more shots against than any other club. Polak, while not an upgrade to the steady, but increasingly over-taxed Gunnarsson, does offer a different kind of presence to the Toronto defence, something brawnier and edgier for head coach Randy Carlyle, if not quite better. Gunnarsson, it was ultimately deemed, could be replaced on the top pairing with something similar internally. "We like our defence individually," general manager Dave Nonis said after the final round of the draft was completed on Saturday afternoon, "[but] we didnt necessarily like how they fit together last year. We wanted to move some pieces and change the look, rebuild it a little bit. I wouldnt say its a major overhaul by doing something like this, but it does give us a different element and its a player we didnt really have." Maybe more significant is how the trade promises to open up further opportunity for the clubs two top guns on defence: Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner. By removing Gunnarsson – who teamed with Dion Phaneuf on left side of the top pair – and adding the right-handed Polak, the Leafs opened up room for Rielly and Gardiner to become more prominent members of the defence. Rielly should move from a place on the bottom pair to something more substantial in the top-four. Gardiner, who led the team in even-strength ice-time, might be the one to replace Gunnarsson on the top pair. "Those guys are going to have to take steps forward," Nonis said of the promising duo. "It might be a lot to ask for Morgan a little bit in his second year, but he made some pretty big strides last year and we would expect that hell take some more next [year]. And I think Jake is a good possibility [of doing the same] as well." Left-handed shots, Rielly and Gardiner were both forced to play the right side often last season – nearly the entire season for the rookie – due to the rarity of right-handed defenders on the Toronto defence (Gardiner, specifically, struggled with the change and eventually had to move back to the left). The addition of the 6-foot-1, 227-pound Poolak will ease that glut and allow more options for Carlyle.dddddddddddd The Blues, who ranked third in the league defensively a year ago, employed Polak in shutdown capacities as well as on their second-ranked penalty kill. He was known in St. Louis as a fierce, physical competitor willing to play through injury. The 28-year-old, who has two years remaining on a five-year contract ($2.75 million cap hit), led the Blues defence in hits and finished second in blocked shots. "Hes a tough guy to play against," Nonis said of Polak, picked in the sixth round of 2004 Draft. "If you look at the minutes he plays he often plays against teams top players. He is very physical, hes very strong. I think theres a perception that because hes so big hes not mobile, I dont think thats true at all. We think that one of his strengths is his skating ability. Hes going to provide a little bit of edge." The fifth overall pick in 2012, Rielly had a fine first season in Toronto, demonstrating improvement with each passing month. He finished with 27 points in nearly 18 minutes of nightly work, emerging as one of the Leafs top possession players in 73 games. It remains to be seen whether he can climb another rung as a sophomore next season though the organization is certainly hopeful based on all that they saw a year ago. "We are hoping that he improves next year," said Nonis. "He may not. He might go through a year where hes not quite ready to go up the lineup, but were comfortable that hes going to get there and hes going to be an impact player and were going to give him an opportunity to do that." Gardiner, meanwhile, finished a rollercoaster third season on a high. He was easily the teams best defenceman down the stretch of another alarming late season collapse, totaling five goals and 14 points in the final 21 games. "Jakes going to have times where [the media] sitting below me in the press-box will hear me smacking on the wall, but the fact is hes got God-given ability that you just cant teach," Nonis said of the 23-year-old. "I think hes getting the other part of his game under control. The last half of the season the turnovers and some of the mistakes he was making earlier were decreasing … He did come a long way." Nonis expects the Leafs to be active at the outset of free agency on July 1st. He was inclined to add another defenceman to the mix, while stating his acceptance to the status quo if furthers upgrades were unavailable. Gunnarsson had mixed feelings after a five-year stay in Toronto. He received word of the trade shortly after 11 a.m. on Saturday morning and was "kind of shocked". "I didnt expect it," he told TSN.ca, still piecing together the emotions of his first trade in the NHL. "Sucks leaving Toronto…its been great." ' ' '
