Jrue Holiday kept his hot streak going on Tuesday as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Toronto Raptors 130-122. 

After dropping a season-high 35 points against the Pacers on Monday, Jrue Holiday kept rolling into Tuesday, again setting a career-high 37 points against the Raptors to go along with 7 assists and 6 rebounds, taking over during the absence of Bucks star Giannis Antentokounmpo, who sat out due to a knee injury.

The spurt from the Bucks starting point guard has come at a convenient time for this scrappy Bucks team, who were slumping after 2 straight defeats to Eastern Conference challengers, the Miami Heat. 

With the win, the Bucks improve to 29-16, good for 2nd in the Eastern Conference. They’ll look to keep the win streak going on Saturday in Cleveland against Donovan Mitchell and the young Cavaliers.
