MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Toronto Raptors chased down a Milwaukee Bucks team that seemed to be sprinting to the NBA Finals last year. Catching them in the standings this season seems unlikely.

The Bucks are on pace to have one of the best records ever. But the Raptors might see them again in the playoffs and get three more chances to see how they measure up before then.

The first is Tuesday in Toronto. Zion Williamson and LeBron James face off for the first time that night. That's the first of two matchups this week between James' Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans.
