The Raptors were oh so close to handing the Warriors their first loss of the season, but came up just short. Now, they’ll try to rebound when they welcome in the Los Angeles Lakers to Toronto on Monday.
Toronto had the Warriors on the ropes all game long, but couldn’t get over that hump, as they eventually fell 112-109.
The Lakers continued their miserable season as they were smacked around by the Pistons on Sunday night 111-91.
Kobe Bryant has the ability to go off any night. Even through his age and injuries, it’s no secret he still has it.
However, if hopes to reach even a quarter of what he did back on Jan. 22, 2006, he needs to catch fire right from the start. Kobe Bryant shot just 2 of 15 and have 5 mere points in the setback to Detroit on Sunday.
Bryant returns to the place where he caused havoc and dropped 81 points, but a performance like that is now way out of Bryant’s range.
With the loss, the Lakers have now loss 9 of 10 and have just 3 wins on the season.
While it’s tough to find silver linings for this Lakers team, Lou Williams performance on Sunday was encouraging. Williams finished with 21 on Sunday and returns to his former employer, in the Toronto Raptors.
Williams averaged 15.5 points last season with Toronto and grabbed 6th Man of the Year. However, the Raptors didn’t feel he fit their system any more and decided to part ways.
Toronto has opened this 6 game home stand on a rocky note as they’ve dropped 2 straight to kick it off.
It was evident in the opener they were looking way ahead as the Nuggets came in as 10 point underdogs and upset them outright. Toronto had their chances against Golden State, but came up just short in a 3 point loss.
Kyle Lowry had a career high with 41 points, but is effort went for not in the loss. Lowry also added 6 3 pointers, 7 assists, and 4 steals to his credit.
Toronto needs Terrence Ross to figure himself out if this team wants to succeed. Ross signed a 3 year 33 million dollar deal in the offseason, but hasn’t produced even close to what the Raptors need him to be doing.
Ross has played in just 8 games since thumb surgery and has averaged 4.3 points in that span with just 30 percent shooting.
