Raptors shrug off rough 1st half to beat Knicks 128-112

Siakam’s 23 points help Raptors beat Knicks

Harrell led Los Angeles with 26 points off the bench. "We can go pretty far into our bench".

Tim Hardaway Jr. led the Knicks in scoring Saturday.

The game was the Raptors' first at home after going a flawless 4-0 out west, and perhaps it was a combination of the afternoon start time and being back on eastern time, but the Raptors looked nothing like the league's best team in the early going. "They have that supporting cast that comes in the game and they take care of business", Hardaway Jr. said. They came out swinging, finding ways to put points on the board while forcing Raptors turnovers and playing sound positional defense, and they maintained the effort throughout the afternoon.

Siakam shot 6 for 7, including a career-best three 3-pointers, and went 8 for 9 at the free-throw line. And Leonard's first field goal didn't come until 46 seconds left in the first half.

After the Knicks cut the lead to one early in the third quarter, the Raptors pulled away and took an 18-point advantage into the fourth that opened with a Valanciunas jumper that bumped the lead to 20. Anunoby led Toronto with 11 points at the half and Wright added 10.

Toronto led 64-53 at halftime, but NY shaved the gap to three points with a 12-4 run to start the second half.

Cameroonian worldwide Siakam drained six field goals including a trio of three-pointers as Toronto romped to a comfortable victory at the Scotiabank Arena. They beat the Raptors 111-109 on November 10, 2015. The Knicks got their first up-close look at the new and improved Raptors with imported star Kawhi Leonard, and it went as well as could be expected. Against a likely lottery team, it's a matter of how many minutes of great play the Raptors need to seal the game, not a matter of whether they can afford some bad minutes on the path to the victory. Lowry led Toronto with seven assists.

After missing all six of his field-goal attempts in Wednesday's win at Atlanta, Knicks rookie Kevin Knox shot 4 for 11 and finished with 12 points. Once the Raptors found the range, it led to a healthy 64-53 edge by halftime.

"I thought there were some good minutes for him tonight", Fizdale said.

"It's awesome", Green said.

"This team that we're playing [today] that's so skilled, watching the film, I haven't even had time to process that", the Knicks coach said with a laugh.

But the Raptors went into the fourth quarter up 100-82 and seemingly with the game well in hand, and when Anunoby drained a three-pointer with eight minutes to play it put the Toronto up by 20 points.
