Toronto enjoyed another MVP-calibre performance from Leonard, who added six rebounds, six assists and five steals to his 30 points.

The Bucks (27-11) had defeated the Raptors in their two previous meetings this season and led 34-27 after the first quarter.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 43 points and 18 rebounds, each stat one shy of his career-high. The final regular season matchup between these two teams will come on January 31, and it should be a good one.

Elsewhere, Stephen Curry scored 42 points and finished with 10 three-pointers as the Golden State Warriors stormed back to the beat the Sacramento Kings 127-123.

In Portland, Jusuf Nurkic had 25 points and 15 rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers snapped James Harden's 40-point streak with a 110-101 win over the Houston Rockets.
