The Raptors' Jose Calderon saw his streak of consecutive free throws end at 87 in Friday night's 96-85 loss to the Bucks, missing his second attempt in the fourth quarter.

The Raptors point guard streak dated back to April 11, 2008. He fell 10 shy of tying the all-time NBA record of 97, set by Minnesota's Micheal Williams in 1993.

Calderon's streak began when he hit the second of two free throws with 3.5 seconds to go in the first quarter of the Raptors' win over the Nets on April 11, 2008. He made two more in that game and has made his first 83 free throws of this season.
