An 112-94 win at home against the LA Clippers gives the Toronto Raptors an eight-game winning streak!
Seven players were in double figures, led by Lowry’s 21, Jonas V’s 20, and DeRozan and T. Ross with 18 a piece.
Western Conference All-Star Chris Paul had a great game: 23 points, 11 assists, 4 rebounds. But it wasn’t enough to beat the Raptors. The Clippers were also missing Blake Griffen due to injury, and a quiet 4 point game from Paul Pierce did not help fill the void at all.
For the second-seeded eastern conference team, Terrence Ross had a spectacular night, scoring 18, grabbing 4 boards and passing for two assists. Watching him on the floor, his comfort level along with the team chemistry is evident.
Continuing the home court advantage, the 9th seeded in the East Coast Washington Wizards will take a trip out to the 6ix. Game time is 7:30 PM.
