  • DeMar DeRozan drops 52 on Bucks in Raptors win

He scored 45 points against the Philadelphia 76ers in December, but he has been a bit inconsistent this season.

The Raptors also tied a franchise record with their 12th straight win.

It was pointed out to DeMar DeRozan that the Raptors are about to face a hard stretch of the National Basketball Association schedule with some excellent teams ahead, including a playoff rematch with the Milwaukee Bucks to open the calendar year. Fran VanVleet and Serge Ibaka contributed 11 points apiece for Toronto. For Milwaukee, Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the way once again, averaging 29.1 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists on 54 percent shooting. The Bucks fell to 19-and-16.

Caris LeVert also had 15 points, while DeMarre Carroll chipped in 14 points, 10 rebounds and the tiebreaking free throw with 34.5 seconds remaining.

Bledsoe's 3-pointer with 10.6 seconds left brought Milwaukee within three before VanVleet split two free throws. Lowry's layup with 1:33 left made it 125-120.

Now, the Bucks aren't considered among the best teams in the league, but they have been a handful for the Raptors in the past and DeRozan figured it was time to make a statement.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has made plays like this look like an easy dunk due to his unique length and body frame that allows him to take just a dribble or two to get to the rim from the perimeter.

Mariah Carey, Camila Cabello And More
Opening up to E!, the LIVE With Kelly and Ryan star quipped, "This year, we are really anxious to see Mariah come back". This year, she returns to redeem herself and Seacrest told Us Weekly , "Here's the thing".

DeRozan added another three-pointer with 2.4 seconds left in the second quarter to finish the half with 26 as Toronto led 60-55 at the break.

Antetokounmpo scored six points during an 12-2 Bucks spurt that pulled them within one, 76-75.

Milwaukee moved in front, 92-90, on a Middleton jumper.

DeRozan is the third player in Raptors history to score 50 or more in a single game.

Matthew Dellavedova's 3-pointer with 3:23 left gave the Bucks a 108-106 edge.

CHICAGO (AP) - Portland guard C.J. McCollum scored 25 of his 32 points after halftime, including the tiebreaking basket with 56.5 seconds remaining in overtime.
