Lowry scores 25 points to lead Raptors past Bucks, 107-89
MILWAUKEE (AP) Kyle Lowry scored 25 points and the Toronto Raptors, despite resting leading scorer DeMar DeRozan, had no trouble with the Milwaukee Bucks in a 107-89 victory Tuesday night.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 18 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists in 35 minutes for Milwaukee, just missing a triple-double.
DeRozan, who averages 23.8 points per game, was in uniform but didn't play after starting each of the team's first 65 games and playing 39 minutes in a loss to Chicago on Monday night.
Toronto took control by scoring the first eight points of the second half to open a 62-49 lead. The Raptors then scored seven consecutive points midway through the third quarter to make it 71-55 on Lowry's 3-pointer with 6:07 left.
Milwaukee never got within single digits again.
