Kawhi to return tonight after missing two games

Toronto Raptors: Kyle Lowry leads winning road trip

The 51 boards were a season-high for Nurse's team. Toronto's 13 offensive rebounds led to 16 second chance points while Sacramento's six offensive boards resulted in just eight points. Now the Raptors are 11-1, holding a two-game lead over the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference.

It was the win that Lowry and all the other Raptors cared about and they got it despite a spirited effort from the now 6-5 Kings.

Led by Kawhi Leonard, who shot a flawless 9-for-9 from the charity stripe, the Raptors finished the game shooting 21-for-23 from the free throw line, sinking eight more free throws than the Kings. But his two makes were certainly loud, and well-timed.

It's one thing to stop a team's momentum with an emphatic three-pointer, but to do it on a shot from several feet behind the line must be completely deflating for defenders. "I'm not at 100%, but I'm healthy" he said after the game with the Toronto Raptors.

But it wasn't all positive news on the injury front Wednesday for the Raps.

For the first time in team history the Raptors have come west and returned home with a flawless record.

Led by three double-figure rebounders (Leonard, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas), the Raptors outrebounded the Kings 53-31 for the game.

Twice, once in the third and again with just under five minutes to go, the Kings got the deficit down to seven only to see that number swell again each time following a Raptors' timeout. Time to panic? Not quite. Just like that it was 112-101, and the game was effectively over.

The Kings have been one of the biggest surprises in the west and it's easy to see why. De'Aaron Fox added 20 points, and second overall draft pick Marvin Bagley III had 13.

Willie Cauley-Stein and Buddy Hield scored 24 points apiece for Sacramento. The Kings will continue to catch teams off guard this year and will be a force to be reckoned with in years to come. They remained aggressive on both ends of the floor and that intensity will keep them competitive against most teams in the league. And Leonard did his part, putting up 25 points, 11 rebounds and two assists in the win. The Raptors shot just 30 per cent from deep on Wednesday, and rank 20th in the National Basketball Association at 34.7 per cent on the season. They were outscored 27-20 in the fourth quarter Wednesday and have often been topped in the final frame. They're now tied with the Golden State Warriors for the best record in the National Basketball Association at 10-1.
