Greivis Vasquez made five 3-pointers en route to 25 points for the Atlantic Division-champion Raptors (48-33), who remained tied with the Bulls for the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference. Chicago beat Orlando on Monday.

"I always have been ready for any opportunity since I got here," Vasquez said. "I'm all about winning and they gave me a chance to start, and I want to help the team win and have a presence in games."

Kyle Lowry added 24 points for Toronto, which has scored 100 or more points in seven straight games. Jonas Valanciunas tallied 14 points and 13 rebounds and Tyler Hansbrough donated 12 points and 11 boards.

"We fell behind, we tried to fight back," Milwaukee coach Larry Drew said. "We got it under 10, but we just couldn't get over the hump."
