With the Toronto Raptors finally recovering from injuries and other health issues-mostly related to COVID-it is time for Chris Boucher to get into battle. For the Quebec center, this is a very bad moment, because he is the best season of his NBA career.
Since the start of the season, Boucher is the only Raptors player to appear in all games on the team (59). He averaged 13.6 points and 6.7 rebounds in 24 minutes per game.
Even more exciting is that the Raptors restored the lineup of several key players on Wednesday night, including Kyle Lowry, Fred Van Flett, OG Anunobi and Pascal Sicam. Back to the game, this is the first time the four players have gathered on the court in the past four months.
The Raptors used their advantage to sign a 114-103 victory, and Siakam led with 27 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists. Anunobi scored 25 points.
“We haven’t been together for a while, and we don’t have the confidence we had before,” said Sportsnet. Lowry said of the slow progress of the Raptors game. But the latter made up for its fourth consecutive victory. Head coach Nick Nurse is very happy.
The nurse said: “The chemistry started during the game.” I think these guys are particularly good at adjusting offensively. We have produced a lot of good results (…) I am satisfied with this performance. I believe this is a big step forward, although we still have a long way to go. “
The Raptors are ranked 11th in the Eastern Conference and are competing with the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards for a playoff spot.
