At 19-15 they are in the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff picture, and if the season ended on New Year's Eve, they would host a first-round playoff series.

In daily fantasy basketball, finding players you want to roster is a lot easier than finding players to avoid.

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.

DeRozan exploded for a franchise-high 52 points on Monday, shooting 17 of 29 from the floor, five of nine from three-point range and he drained all 13 of his free-throw attempts.

Brogdon is averaging an impressive 25.8 FanDuel points per game over his last five, but our models are pretty low on him tonight, projecting him for only 22.0 FanDuel points.

Antetokounmpo made a shot that was answered by a Lowry three-pointer for a tie with 56.9 seconds left.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors meet Monday in National Basketball Association action at the Air Canada Centre. Kyle Lowry added 26 points and Serge Ibaka scored 11 in the winning effort. He dropped 21 points in the first quarter alone, including three 3-pointers, and finished 5-of-9 beyond the arc on the night. They'd added another dimension since the two foes tangled in the playoffs - veteran guard Eric Bledsoe, another attacker to complement Antetokounmpo. "It gave us a true test and as a competitor you want that, you want to play against the best to see where you stand".
