With Damian Lillard out of the line-up, Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum scored a game-high 32 points with eight assists and six rebounds to lead his team past the Chicago Bulls 124-120 after overtime.

Before him, former Toronto stars Vince Carter and Terrence Ross held the joint record with 51 points but DeRozan beat that by one on Monday night to also claim a career high of 52 points.

Kyle Lowry had 26 points and Serge Ibaka added 11 for the Raptors, who also won 12 straight at Air Canada Centre between January 18 and March 6, 2016. Toronto is an National Basketball Association best 14-and-1 at home and improved to 25-and-10 overall.

Eric Bledsoe scored 29 points and Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 for the Bucks, who had won their previous two.

First meeting: Monday's game will be Toronto's first meeting with the Bucks since the two teams faced off in a first-round playoff series last April.

He scored 45 points against the Philadelphia 76ers in December, but he has been a bit inconsistent this season. Lowry knotted the game at 112-112 on a 3-pointer with 56.9 seconds remaining.

Kris Dunn claimed 22 points for the Bulls, but it was not enough and two misses late in the game sealed the victory for Portland.
