Raptors extend streak to five with win over Kings

Toronto Raptors: Kyle Lowry leads winning road trip

It was the first time in 10 games that Lowry hadn't hit double-digits in the assist department, but without asking him about it, we can say with some confidence that he could care less.

"I feel like once I start learning the offence I could even give him a little break and let him get some easier shots even though he's playing well".

But it will be a tough task as they host the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors (10-1). The Raptors put up a shocking 23 turnovers Wednesday night, with Leonard accounting for five of them. "You look up and down the line, the only thing we beat them in was rebounding". They're now tied with the Golden State Warriors for the best record in the National Basketball Association at 10-1.

Leonard sat out the previous two games and got off to a sluggish start early against the Kings before helping Toronto pull away.

The two-time All-Star scored 10 points in the second quarter and 10 in the third, including a soaring, one-handed dunk through traffic. Toronto didn't get to the line almost as much in the second half, but the team showed that it's capable of doing so.

Although the game got off to a shaky start, the Raptors benefitted from contributions across the board to earn a road win over a much-improved young team in the Kings. Willie Cauley-Stein, the sixth pick in 2015, is proving to be a late-bloomer and continued his strong season with 24 points, while Buddy Hield, acquired from New Orleans in the DeMarcus Cousins trade, scored 24 of his own and is in the middle of a massive breakout campaign.

Warren Gatland: 'Strong' bench can help Wales against Australia
All the scars we collect, whether it is this game or the one after that or the 15 left until the World Cup final, will help us". It is a position that is very strong for Wales .

After winning five games in a row, the Kings (6-4) lost their last game in Milwaukee.

Leonard made five free throws in the period, one coming after a frustrated Joerger was called for a technical foul for arguing with officials.

Green added back-to-back 3s, and OG Anunoby followed with a steal and dunk as Toronto took a 64-51 halftime lead.

Lowry has been the workhorse for the team so far this season on both ends of the floor.

"We were lucky to come out with this one, '" he said after the game. Lowry doing so by having the 3rd highest assist ratio for players who play more than 20 minutes per game.

In scoring 21 points (on 8-for-11 shooting) and grabbing three rebounds, Pascal Siakam finishes the four-game West Coast swing averaging 15.8 points and 7.0 rebounds while shooting 65.8 percent from the floor. Norman Powell was held out because of a left shoulder injury sustained Monday against Utah.
