Two of the top three teams in the Eastern Conference will play in a highly-anticipated meeting on Sunday.

The Raptors (21-6) have been the class of the East through the first one-third of the season, winning 21 of their 27 games behind offseason acquisition Kawhi Leonard, who looks as good as new coming off an injury. Leonard has averaged 26.4 points and 8.3 rebounds per game this season. Despite their season success, the Raptors have lost two of their last three games, including a one point overtime defeat to the Nets in their most recent contest. Leonard led the way with 32 points for Toronto.

MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks (16-8) are one of the league's bigger surprises thus far. "The Greek Freak" has posted gaudy numbers (26.8 PPG, 13.0 RPG, 6.0 APG) to go along with 15 double-doubles and two triple-doubles. Like the Raptors, the Bucks are also going through some struggles, with their's being a bit more severe. Milwaukee has lost four of its last seven and is just 9-8 since it won its first seven games. The Warriors came away victorious, 105-95, on Friday night over the Bucks.

This will be the second of four matchups between these two teams. Milwaukee won the first game, its final victory of its seven-game streak, 124-109 on Oct. 29 in a contest in which seven Bucks scored in double figures.

Where is Bucks-Raptors being played?

Scotiabank Arena in Toronto will host Sunday's game. The Raptors are 11-3 in their home arena and have won four of their last five games North of the border. Despite Milwaukee's success this season, playing on the road has ben its Achilles heel, as the Bucks are only 4-5 away from home.
