Grevis 5 Treys and 25 Points as Toronto Upends Milwaukee 110-100

The Toronto Raptors keep piling up accomplishments.

But they realize they have more to do this season.

Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points, Kyle Lowry had 24 and the Raptors set a franchise record with their 48th win, beating the Milwaukee Bucks 110-100 on Monday night. “This is probably the best team I’ve ever been on,” Vasquez said. It may well be, but the true measure of Toronto’s success will come in their postseason performance. “We can’t just be happy,” Vasquez said. “We’ve got to continue to get better and make a run in the playoffs.”

Vasquez made an impact right away, hitting three of Toronto’s six 3-pointers in the first quarter, as the Raptors built a 32-19 lead after one.

Vasquez had two more 3-pointers in the second, getting eight points and four assists as Toronto took a 59-46 lead at halftime.

Knicks Decide to Give Peace a Chance

Metta World Peace, who cleared waivers late Sunday afternoon after being amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers, has found a new landing spot.

 Metta World Peace will work well in rotation with Carmelo Anthony and, as a quotable personality headed back to a town he loves, he’ll also clear a few reporters from Anthony’s locker, writes Bradford Doolittle. 

World Peace said Monday that he was joining theNew York Knicks because he wants to win.

“I don’t care if I’m starting, or sweeping the floors. You hear me? I want to win,” he said.

The Knicks said the contract has not been signed but an agreement has been reached.

The two came to terms on a two-year deal with the first year guaranteed, a league source told ESPNNewYork.com’s Ian Begley.

The deal is worth approximately $1.6 million per season with a player option for Year 2, the source said, adding that the Knicks used the remainder of their mini-midlevel exception to sign the former Laker. from espn.com

Lakers to Land Dwight Howard

A four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers is complete, multiple sources told ESPN on Thursday night.  A source with direct knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com’s Marc Stein the Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will receive Andrew Bynum andJason Richardson, and the Magic will get Arron AfflaloAl HarringtonNikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the three teams. In addition, the Magic will be getting other pieces, including 76ers No. 1 draft pick Moe Harkless, a source told Stein. from ESPN.com

My take—I can’t figure out why these 3 teams are helping the Lakers. For my money Orlando comes up empty in this deal.
