Toronto Raptors Squeeze Past Sacramento Kings

Raptors vs Kings November 6 2019

The Toronto Raptors have been proving that all of their success wasn’t attributed to Kawhi last year, and that they can still compete in the Eastern Conference.

Last night’s game against the Sacramento Kings was no different. The Raptors showed real depth with 3 players scoring 21+ points and 6 players scoring a dozen more points.

Kyle Lowry led the Raptors in scoring with 24 points shooting 8/15 from the field and an impressive 5/7 from three point land. Lowry also added 2 rebounds, 6 assists, and 2 steals.

Pascal Siakim was right behind Lowry in scoring with 23 points and he did it even more efficiently shooting 8/13 from the field. Siakim added 13 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals.

Serge Ibaka scored 21 points off 9/16 shooting from the field. Ibaka contributed 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals.

OG Annouby (18), Marc Gasol (12), and Fred VanFleet (12) all scored a dozen or more for The Raptors as well.

The Kings are filled with bright young talent, but they are lacking in a superstar and don’t quite have enough collective experience to make a playoff push in the star-studded Western Conference.

They were led in scoring by the veteran Harrison Barnes who had 26 points shooting 7/15 from the field and 4/9 from three. Barnes added 4 rebounds, 3 assists, and a block.

Bogdan Bogdanavich scored 22 for The Kings off 7/14 shooting from the field. He hit an impressive 6 of 11 of his three point attempts and added 2 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals.

Buddy Hield had an impressive night from three point range shooting 5/7 from three and scoring 21 points off 7/16 shooting from the field. Hield also had 8 rebounds, 1 steal, and 1 block.

De’Aaron Fox also had a notable night for The Kings scoring 17 points and logging a double double with 10 assists and 7 rebounds. He also picked up a block and a steal as well.

All of this wasn’t enough for the Kings although they did keep the game somewhat close. The Kings started off the game with the lead but once the Raptors took the lead the first time from the Kings, they never lost it.

The Toronto Raptors move to 5-2 on the season while the Kings fall to 2-6.
