Box Score
O. Anunoby25 MIN, 16 PTS, 2 REB, 3 AST, 1 STL, 7-7 FG, 1-1 3FG, 1-2 FT, 0 BLK, 2 TO, 16 +/-

OG was perfect from the field today and he chose his spots very well and was the beneficiary of plenty great transition looks as well, his defense was also great tonight as well, OG was a force defensively against Giannis as well.

P. Siakam33 MIN, 26 PTS, 6 REB, 7 AST, 0 STL, 9-13 FG, 5-8 3FG, 3-3 FT, 0 BLK, 3 TO, 22 +/-

Pascal’s best game of the season, he shot the lights out tonight with 5 threes, and he seemed to get to the rim at will tonight as well, a good amount of his work came off ball and he looked good doing it, his scoring led to good looks for teammates as well.

J. Poeltl29 MIN, 14 PTS, 11 REB, 2 AST, 0 STL, 7-10 FG, 0-0 3FG, 0-0 FT, 4 BLK, 2 TO, 22 +/-

Jakob anchored the defense very well tonight, he was a huge part of slowing Giannis down and he protected the rim very well. Great in the pick and roll as well, timed his rolls well and found easy layups at the rim as a result of it.

S. Barnes29 MIN, 21 PTS, 12 REB, 5 AST, 1 STL, 8-16 FG, 4-6 3FG, 1-1 FT, 2 BLK, 3 TO, 14 +/-

Another great game from Scottie, he shot the three ball with confidence tonight and also showed off his size with rim looks and rebounding, he even gave Giannis a taste of his own medicine when he moved him out of the way for a layup. Was a good defender on Giannis tonight, giving him some resistance for a lot of this game

D. Schroder29 MIN, 24 PTS, 4 REB, 11 AST, 1 STL, 9-13 FG, 2-4 3FG, 4-4 FT, 0 BLK, 2 TO, 21 +/-

Dennis was a playmaking wizard tonight and he used his rim pressure in order to create a lot of looks for his teammates. Took advantage of Damian Lillard on offense and blew by him all night and also got downhill in the pick and roll a whole bunch, his defense on Dame was also suffocating all night.

G. Trent Jr.23 MIN, 8 PTS, 3 REB, 1 AST, 0 STL, 4-11 FG, 0-5 3FG, 0-0 FT, 0 BLK, 1 TO, 8 +/-

Gary was missing a lot of his looks tonight, had a lot a good ones but couldn’t get them to drop, did some stuff in the mid range and at the bucket but overall an inefficient game for Trent.

G. Dick21 MIN, 5 PTS, 1 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 2-10 FG, 1-8 3FG, 0-0 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, -3 +/-

Gradey’s shots were not falling tonight and he had multiple great looks, but the way he moved on defense was good, and the way he flows within the offense is very promising for a rookie.

M. Flynn19 MIN, 2 PTS, 3 REB, 4 AST, 3 STL, 1-3 FG, 0-1 3FG, 0-0 FT, 0 BLK, 3 TO, -2 +/-

Real nice defensive game from Flynn tonight, also had a lot of strong passes tonight as well, multiple hit aheads in transition, just solid game for Malachi tonight.

C. Boucher13 MIN, 6 PTS, 5 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL, 2-4 FG, 0-1 3FG, 2-2 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, -10 +/-

Good energy off the bench, didn’t really pop out this game.

O. Porter Jr.16 MIN, 6 PTS, 3 REB, 1 AST, 0 STL, 2-4 FG, 2-4 3FG, 0-0 FT, 1 BLK, 0 TO, 11 +/-

Great game from Otto after being reinserted into the lineup, helpful on the glass, and spaced the floor very well tonight.

G. Temple03 MIN, 2 PTS, 0 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 0-0 FG, 0-0 3FG, 2-2 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, -4 +/-

Garbage time

Darko Rajakovic

Great defensive game play for Giannis and Dame tonight, Giannis saw multiple bodies in the paint and he made Dame give up the ball, really nice to see Otto inserted into the rotation tonight as well.

Things We Saw

  1. Once again Scottie Barnes dominated a game on both ends, really great to see him controlling games like this and be so comfortable as a scorer.
  2. Dennis Schroders rim pressure was a wonderful and he created so many looks for himself and others as a result of it.
  3. Darko dnped Jalen McDaniels and put Otto Porter Jr back in and the offensive help Otto provided proved to be more suitable for Toronto.
