DeMar DeRozan drops 52 on Bucks in Raptors 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. "You want to be among the best and the only way you can do that is to beat the best teams in the league".

"When you come out here and you're in those moments, you've got to make the best out of them", DeRozan said.

DeRozan shot 17-for-29 from the field, which included a 5-for-9 night from 3, and 13-for-13 from the foul line.

Serge Ibaka and Fred VanVleet added 11 apiece for Toronto, which is 8-2 in its last 10 games and has the second-best record in the Eastern Conference behind Boston.

Toronto opened as a 6.5-point fave, while the over-under has gone up from 214 points.
