MILWAUKEE – DeMar DeRozan scored 26 points and Kyle Lowry added 19 to lead the Toronto Raptors to a 105-99 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.

DeRozan again tormented the Bucks and Toronto hit 14 3-pointers to continue its dominance against Milwaukee. The Raptors have won 11 of the last 12 meetings.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 29 points and added 11 assists, while Tony Snell had a season-high 16 points for the Bucks.

With the game on the line, Lowry hit a 3-pointer and DeRozan knocked down a contested jumper with 16 seconds left to seal the victory.
