The Raptors didn’t have five players including Kyle Lowry, but that didn’t stop them from showing their best performance in this season’s game against the Golden State Warriors, winning at the Amalia Stadium on Friday night. A 130-77 victory.
In a difficult season, the Raptors’ big hands took advantage of Steve Curry’s absence from the Warriors to boost their confidence. Pascal Siakam scored 36 points, while newcomer Gary Trent Jr. scored 24 points.
Quebec Chris Boucher scored 10 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists in 25 minutes of the game.
On the other hand, Canada’s Andrew Wiggins led the timid Warriors with 15 points. The California team’s shooting percentage is only 32.9%, while the Raptors’ shooting percentage is only 53.4%.
On Friday night, Toronto was deprived of the services of Kyle Lowry and four other players. The 35-year-old missed the game for the second time in a row due to a foot infection.
Except for the veterans, without Paul Watson, Rodney Hood, Patrick McCaw and Jalen Harris, the only Canadian team in the NBA will have to manage.
According to TSN, DeAndre Bembry’s name has been removed from the list of injured players. He also came back to participate in the meeting with the Warriors.
In order to comply with the league’s health and safety protocols, the latter is not in the last four games of the Raptors.
