O.Anunoby24 MIN, 18 PTS, 5 REB, 3 AST, 5 STL, 7-12 FG, 1-3 3FG, 3-3 FT, 1 BLK, 2 TO, 28 +/-

OG are in contention for an all defensive spot and if he continues to play like this he will be sure to get one, another 5 steals for him tonight but that only captures part of his impact on defence, safe to say he was everywhere tonight. Also a great night for him going through defenders several times.


P. Siakam28 MIN, 22 PTS, 10 REB, 11 AST, 1 STL, 10-19 FG, 1-5 3FG, 1-1 FT, 0 BLK, 3 TO, 26 +/-

Another triple double for Pascal and he continues to dominate games in many ways, was using his gravity early on to get some great looks for his teammates but decided late in the game to start scoring. The mid-range continues to look good this season as well.


C.Koloko23 MIN, 2 PTS, 6 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 1-4 FG, 0-0 3FG, 0-0 FT, 1 BLK, 1 TO, 30 +/-

One of Koloko’s best defensive games, played well on the drop and also provided help on the edge, also fought for offensive rebounds.


G.Trent Jr.26 MIN, 24 PTS, 3 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL, 9-17 FG, 2-6 3FG, 4-4 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, 35 +/-

Great goalscoring game from Gary and he did it in a myriad of ways with a good part through pull-ups, also made a lot of hard shots, didn’t give up on defense either.


S. Barnes28 MIN, 15 PTS, 4 REB, 5 AST, 0 STL, 7-13 FG, 1-4 3FG, 0-0 FT, 1 BLK, 2 TO, 30 +/-

Started the game extremely well and aggressive but made most of his goals in the first half, that was another good play from him too. He nails three to a 52% clip this season.


K. Birch12 MIN, 2 PTS, 0 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL, 1-2 FG, 0-0 3FG, 0-0 FT, 0 BLK, 1 TO, 7 +/-

Was a plus in defense for his time on the ground, contained pilots well staying big and sinking.


C.Boucher25 MIN, 17 PTS, 8 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL, 7-10 FG, 3-5 3FG, 0-0 FT, 1 BLK, 1 TO, 22 +/-

Great night defending from Boucher, did a great job providing rim assist and played the passing lanes well. Great evening of filming as well and was a huge factor in the transition as well. He was easily the MVP from the bench.


P.Achiuwa21 MIN, 12 PTS, 6 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL, 4-9 FG, 0-3 3FG, 4-4 FT, 1 BLK, 1 TO, 6 +/-

Another good defensive game from Precious where he played a big part in smothering Spurs, still didn’t quite find his shot but attacked the catch and had some great finishes.


D. Banton13 MIN, 13 PTS, 0 REB, 0 AST, 0 STL, 5-7 FG, 3-3 3FG, 0-0 FT, 1 BLK, 0 TO, 8 +/-

Was very helpful in transitioning scoring on several leaks and had a great night of shooting, including hitting a level three deep from Curry. Stayed ahead of faster defenders using his length well. Good containment.


O. Porter Jr.11 MIN, 5 PTS, 3 REB, 0 AST, 2 STL, 1-2 FG, 1-2 3FG, 2-2 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, 9 +/-

First NBA action for Otto this season, turned well during his time on the floor and showed his positive rebound. A little taste of what’s to come


Mr. Flynn10 MIN, 8 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST, 0 STL, 3-5 FG, 2-2 3FG, 0-0 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, 6 +/-

He used little time to show his sweater, hit two quick threes with some play. I got stuck on the edge after taking a big dribble, it reminded me of Fred.


T. Young08 MIN, 5 PTS, 2 REB, 2 AST, 2 STL, 2-4 FG, 0-0 3FG, 1-2 FT, 0 BLK, 0 TO, 5 +/-

It looked a bit like a relic there. You can see he doesn’t fit right in with the rest of the guys. His decision-making is a little slow and ended up stopping the pace a few times.


Nick Nurse

Didn’t run a lineup that toppled the Raptors defense and actually trusted Scottie and OG to lead a lineup that paid off tonight. I didn’t have to do a lot of coaching tonight.
