Quebec Chris Boucher had the best night of his career in Tampa on Thursday. For the Toronto Raptors, that was not enough, they lost 122-113 to the Chicago Bulls.
Pascal Siakam also helped him, and he ended the game with 27 points.
In terms of winning, Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic both scored 22 points. Five of their teammates crossed 10 points.
The Raptors will play again with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.
When head coach Nick Neisser learned that he would be disqualified from two players hours before the start of the game, he was already dealing with several injured players, including Kyle Lowry.
Fred VanVleet and DeAndre Bembry were suspended for one game for participating in the first quarter of Tuesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers.
After the injury, VanVleet had to suspend the game when he was ready to return to the game, and OG Anunoby was fined $30,000 for this.
Therefore, the nurse only needs to take care of eight players, which is the minimum number required to play the game.
