A Bucks turnover and a botched Toronto possession ending with a shot-clock violation gave Milwaukee one shot with 3.2 seconds left.

Giannis Antetokounmpo now leads the Eastern Conference with 16 games recording at least 20 points and 10 rebounds. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 104.8 points on 48.2 percent shooting and allowing 105.2 points on 46.5 percent shooting.

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.

'Multiple' Americans killed in Costa Rica plane crash
A small plane crash Sunday in northwest Costa Rica killed 12 people, including 10 USA citizens, officials said. They said within minutes after takeoff the plane took a nose dive and crashed.

The Bucks' reserves inched their team into the lead inside the second quarter, despite a mesmerizing five-point, two-assist stretch from Toronto reserve point guard Delon Wright, including some flashy passes and a heads-up interception for a dunk. He scored the first nine points of the game and had 21 in the first, the most by a Raptors player in a quarter this season.

The Raptors did as well as any team could in harnessing Antetokounmpo, who came into the game second in the league in soring averaging 29.1 points per game. DeRozan's stats also included five rebounds and eight assists, while Lowry added six assists and six boards. Serge Ibaka is the third double-digit scorer and Jonas Valanciunas is grabbing 7.7 rebounds. Toronto is 4-0 ATS in its last four games versus a team with a straight up losing road record.

The Bucks are 3-7-2 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up win, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Atlantic and 1-8-3 ATS in their last 12 vs.

Unsafe cold on tap for New Year's Eve
Expect frigid temperatures and potentially unsafe wind chills for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. "A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 6 pm for western Grant and western Pendleton Counties".

The Bucks (19-15) were visiting Toronto for the first time since the opening round of the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs, when the talented young squad led by 6-foot-11 phenom Antetokounmpo got the NBA's attention by going up 2-1 on the favoured Raptors before Toronto won in six.

The Milwaukee Bucks continue to be hit or miss and have a lot more misses than hits on the road this season. Antetokounmpo's play has also elevated him into the MVP conversation with the Bucks rising up the standings in the Eastern Conference over the last couple of weeks.
