#1 Pascal Siakam stole the show


Pascal Siakam was undoubtedly the best player on the court for the Raptors. He scored the most points of the night with 28, made 10 rebounds and also gave five assists. Siakam is another player who is in contention of the Most Improved Player award this year. He was unstoppable in the post.

Kawhi Leonard gave another consistent performance, scoring 26 points, nine rebounds and three assists. Apart from Kawhi and Siakam, Serge Ibaka also contributed to the team, scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds - most rebounds of the night.

The Raptors team is all set for the playoffs and would like to wrap up the regular season with wins in the last three remaining games. The playoff picture isn’t any clearer after tonight’s results for the Nets. They are tied at 39-40 with the Orlando Magic for the seventh and eighth spots.

Toronto will face Charlotte Hornets on Friday whereas the Brooklyn Nets face the Eastern conference leaders Milwaukee Bucks this Saturday.
