NBA Daily: Defending Champion Raptors Dismantle Pistons 112-99


PhilBoxing.com




Boracay Island, Philippines – The Toronto Raptors used an 11-0 run in the third canto to break away for good and beat the Detroit Pistons 112-99 on Wednesday night (Thursday morning, Philippine time) at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

Paskal Siakam stuffed the stat sheets with game high 26 points, including 6 triples to go with 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, and 4 blocks. Kyle Lowry added a triple-double of 20 markers, 10 boards, and 10 dimes, while Serge Ibaka scored 25 off the bench.

Fred VanVleet didn’t suit up for the game due to a right knee injury. Marc Gasol and Norman Powell followed suit during the game. Gasol left the first frame when he sustained a left hamstring strain, while Powell was clutching his left shoulder when he left the court with 3:17 left in the fourth.

The defending champions now stand at 4th place in the Eastern Conference team standing with 19 wins and 8 losses.

Pistons frontcourt Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin returned this game from their respective injuries. Drummond got a double-double of 22 points and 18 rebounds, to go with 2 steals and 2 blocks. Griffin added 15 markers for the Pistons, who dropped to an 11-17 win-loss card and are now sitting at 10th place in the Eastern Conference.

The Pistons will try to bounce back, as they face the Celtics in Boston on Friday night (Saturday morning, Philippine time).

Meanwhile, the Raptors will travel home to host the Washington Wizards on the same night.

Raptors 112 – Siakam 26, Ibaka 25, Lowry 20, Anunoby 19, Powell 9, Hollis-Jefferson 5, Davis 4, Boucher 2, McCaw 2
