Toronto Raptors All-Star DeMar DeRozan reiterated his case of being one of the league's best scorers, with a 52-point outburst in a 131-127 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

He scored his 52 on only 29 shots, and also went a perfect 13 of 13 from the line and was 5 for 9 from three-point range.

I remember being a kid and wishing to be in moments like that. When you come out here and you're in those moments, you've got to make the best out of them.
