The Milwaukee Bucks look to begin the New Year on a positive note in Canada as they face the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors defeated the Bucks 4-2 last year in their playoff series with both teams in playoff positioning once again this season. The Bucks will try to do what many teams have not been to do: beat the Raptors at home, who are 13-1 at the Air Canada Centre this season. The Bucks are coming off two solid wins of their own against strong Western Conference opponents in the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Oklahoma City Thunder. Tip-off from Toronto is slated for 6:30 p.m.
