Ilyasova scores 31 as Bucks beat Raptors



TORONTO (AP) -- Ersan Ilyasova had 31 points and 12 rebounds, Drew Gooden added 21 points and the short-handed Milwaukee Bucks beat Toronto 105-99 on Sunday night, their sixth straight victory over the Raptors.

   Mike Dunleavy scored 19 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer in the fourth quarter, as the Bucks survived a final period that included seven lead changes to win their second straight and pull within one game of the New York Knicks for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. New York lost at home to Philadelphia earlier Sunday.

   Ilyasova finished one point shy of the career high he set against Chicago last week, but still recorded his third double-double in four games.

   DeMar DeRozan scored 21 points and Jerryd Bayless had 16 for the Raptors, who couldn't hold on after leading by as many as 13 in the first half. Toronto has lost four of six.
