Saturday, December 26 finds the Toronto Raptors playing the San Antonio Spurs in a Boxing Day match.
The Spurs hold the all-time record between the clubs with 34 wins in 48 meetings. Last season, the clubs played twice with each club taking one victory.
A tough start to the season for the team from the North who’ll play every game essentially on the road because they are relegated to playing in Tampa Bay, Florida due to Canadian border restrictions caused from the pandemic.
In their opening match versus the New Orleans Pelicans, the Raptors got out to a solid start and led by double-figures but a cold-shooting third quarter cost them and they weren’t able to claw their way back.
After a rough bubble showing Pascal Siakam has something to prove and looked back to normal in his first game delivering 20 points, six rebounds, and six assists while connecting on three of his seven perimeter attempts.
Kyle Lowry was his typical bulldog best with a double-double of 18 points and 10 assists as he hit four 3-pointers in the second quarter.
Aron Baynes made a solid debut with his new team coming one rebound shy of a double-double (11 points, nine rebounds). Chris Boucher and Norman Powell each chipped in 12 points off the bench.
The loss by the Raptors puts them under .500 for the first time in seven years. Patrick McCaw is healing from a knee procedure and won’t be in the lineup Saturday.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs didn’t have a great preseason losing all three matches including twice to the Rockets (112-98 and 128-106), as well as to the lottery-bound Thunder (121-108).
But Gregg Popovich’s crew proved preseason is meant to make tweaks and prepare for the regular season as they laid a thumping on the Grizzlies (131-119) in their season opener.
Former Raptor DeMar DeRozan had a strong first effort with 28 points, nine rebounds, nine assists, one steal, and one block. Dejounte Murray was stellar on defense and added 21 points, six rebounds, and nine assists.
All five Spurs starters reached double-digit scoring with LaMarcus Aldridge registering 20 points while Lonnie Walker and Keldon Johnson each scored 16.
In addition, Rudy Gay (10) and Patty Mills (13) also hit that standard off the bench.
Quinndary Weatherspoon missed the opener as he is still recovering from offseason knee surgery and is questionable for Saturday. Derrick White had toe surgery for a dislocated toe and is also questionable.
