Raptors remain undefeated:
The Toronto Raptors remain undefeated in the NBA bubble as the took on the Orlando Magic. The start of this game was languid from an offensive standpoint as both teams were playing strong defence. Things didn’t start to pick until 9:48 of the first quarter.
Once the offence started, the was no looking back for the Raptors. Fred VanVleet led the team in scoring with 21 points, while Pascal Siakam added 15 points, and Kyle scored 8 points. It was the team’s third win since the restart began.
On the other side Orlando just couldn’t see to get their game going. Terrence Ross was the only bright for them scoring 15 points. To make matter worse for the Magic Aaron Gordon left the game with what looked to be a hamstring injury.
With the 109-99 victory, the Raptors will look to extend their winning streak as they face the Boston Celtics.
Lakers lose to the Thunder:
They have clinched a playoff seed as well as the Western Conference but have lost two games during this restart. The first loss was Saturday against the NBA champion Toronto Raptors 107-92, and the second was last night against the Oklahoma City Thunder 105-86.
The Thunder pretty led throughout the entire game holding LA’s two top stars to a total of 28 points, which is rare for the dynamic duo. Oklahoma, on the other hand, multiple players in double figures and leading, was Chris Paul with 21 points.
Next for the Lakers is a match-up against James Harden and the Houston Rockets on Thursday, while play on Friday against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Celtics crush the nets in a blowout:
Another game that was on the schedule Wednesday night had the Boston Celtics taking on the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets who have been without their two top stars in Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving got destroyed in what I would call a blowout win 149-115.
I mean, what the hell happened? There were only two starters for the nets that were in double figures those being: Joe Harris and Jarrett Allen.
While Boston was missing there top dog in Kemba Walker, the offence was rolling last night. Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward, Daniel Thies, and Marcus Smart were contributors to blowout against nets.
Next for the Celtics is a date with the champs the Toronto Raptors. And the Nets play the Sacramento Kings both games are on Friday Night.
