The Toronto Raptors kept their hopes for a 121-114 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night, hoping to make the playoffs.
“Tonight is amazing [dimanche]. Seacam said that he controlled the game from his position, and his comments have been reported on the NBA website. Obviously, when he plays like this and we shoot, everything becomes easier. “
Lowry promised that a failed trade with the Lakers before the trade deadline would not affect his performance in any way.
“There is no other motivation,” Lowry said after the game. I don’t care about anything except winning the game. “
For the Raptors, it is indeed essential to maintain their chances of participating in the next NBA playoff qualifying game, especially since they have already lost the first three games.
However, the players of the Toronto club are far from that. They will have to play again in Tuesday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Indeed, they are still two halves behind the Washington Wizards. They occupy the tenth and last place in the Eastern Conference and enter the qualifying round. The Raptors and Wizards will also play their swords in a key game in Tampa on Thursday.
The Raptors should also be wary of the Chicago Bulls, which ranked 12th, three games behind the Wizards. However, they have one more game than the Raptors.
In the next game, the Toronto team hopes to count on one of its best players, especially OG Anunoby on defense. The latter quit training at the last minute on Sunday. Fred VanVleet, Chris Boucher and Gary Trent Jr. also don’t wear uniforms.
Before the end of the regular season, the Raptors still have seven games.
