On Sunday, April 11th, the Toronto Raptors, and New York Knicks meet for the second time this season. Toronto won the initial meeting on December 31st by a score of 100-83.
The Raptors hold the all-time record between the clubs with 55 wins in 96 meetings. Last season, the teams played twice with Toronto taking both contests.
The Raptors will play their fifth game this week and the second game of a back-to-back set after mauling the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday.
With Toronto electing to rest Pascal Siakam and continue to hold out Kyle Lowry it seemed like the Raptors were conceding the loss (and perhaps the season). Fred VanVleet was missing his third game and that represented the top three Raptors scorers.
Instead of rolling over though, the Raptors surprisingly put up a franchise-best 87 first-half points with three players registering career-best performances.
In just nine games with Toronto, Gary Trent Jr. still hasn’t had a chance to practice with the team given the insane schedule segment but he’s already posted his career-best point tally and beaten it.
On Saturday he scored 44 points on an incredibly efficient 17 of 19 from the field including 7 of 9 from deep plus seven rebounds, four assists, and a steal.
Rookie Malachi Flynn recorded his first-ever double-double with a career-best 20 points and 11 assists. Yuta Watanabe scored a career-best 14 points.
Canadian Khem Birch who was waived by the Magic and picked up by the Raptors is expected to make his debut on Sunday while Lowry (foot) is questionable.
VanVleet (hip), Jalen Harris (hip), and Paul Watson (protocols) were out Saturday and expected out Sunday.
New York Knicks
The Knicks ending a mini two-game losing simultaneously ending the Memphis Grizzlies four-game win streak. New York roared back to tie the game and force overtime and went onto win the match 133-129 in overtime.
The Knicks youngsters led the way with R.J. Barrett registering 20 points, five rebounds, two assists, and a steal. Immanuel Quickley also collected 20 points, four rebounds, two assists, and a steal.
Julius Randle posted his fifth triple-double of the season featuring 15 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists. Derrick Rose and Alec Burks both scored 19 points while Elfrid Payton added 12 as the other double-figure scorers for the Knicks.
It was a difficult game for the Knicks who uncharacteristically didn’t have their typical defensive prowess as the Grizzlies shot 50 percent from the field and 46.7 percent from deep.
That Memphis scored 67 points in the paint and still lost a game they led by as much as 15 points is a testament to their scrappiness.
John Henson is day-to-day with a calf injury Mitchell Robinson is out indefinitely with a fractured foot.
