First place Raptors clobber Lakers, Bucks topple Kings

Grant SmithNov 06, 2018

Ibaka set the tone for Toronto's romp with a blistering first quarter, scoring 20 of Toronto's 42 points in the opening 12 minutes, outscoring the Lakers on his own in the process. We may just have to wade through a bit of muck before they get here. Devin Booker played the entire fourth quarter Sunday with five fouls, but they needed him on the court to spark a 21-7 fourth-quarter run to make it a game again.

LeBron James urged his Los Angeles Lakers team-mates to ignore "outside noise" after they fell to a sixth defeat of the season against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

The Jazz clearly have some kinks to iron out before reclaim their throne as the Association's best defensive squad and an elite team in the Western Conference.

Serge Ibaka, OG Anunoby and Fred VanVleet also had 17 points as the Raptors were bolstered with six players in double figures to win their fourth straight game. "The best thing is he's doing it with some real good composure". Listen, coaching staff put us in a position to win, and it's up to us to go up and execute. It will be the first half of a back-to-back with the Utah Jazz on deck for Monday.

"I just wanted to get healthy", Leonard said after Friday's win. Ibaka got them by repeatedly feasting on the Lakers' porous interior defense. It's impressive. The Suns and Booker really want him to be an All-Star guard this season, and if he were in the East I'd say "done deal", but in the West - Stephen Curry, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, Donovan Mitchell - it's tough to crack the club.

In his first season with the Raptors, Kawhi Leonard has gotten off to a terrific start.

"For me and what I've experienced in this league, I've tried to stay even keeled". "Just as bad as you can play for a month you're going to round out a great month or two. You don't look too much into it".
