Toronto on a good path to setting a franchise record.

With this performance from Terrence Davis, it makes you think-what does it really take to come an NBA All Star?
If you were to turn on the tv in the second quarter you probably wouldn’t recognize that the Raptors were playing. The only starter who was on the floor was OG Anunoby and he wasn’t even acting like one. He would get caught taking one too many steps midway through the second frame, not once but twice within one minute. Norman Powell would sit on the sidelines with a fractured left hand and would sit out indefinitely next to Marc Gasol who tore his hamstring. With the trade deadline coming up, it’s a very bad time to be sitting on the bench and not showing (proving) your worth to the team.
I’m not going to lie. My humble opinion from the start of this game was Toronto had this and was going to add another notch to their current win streak. As of now (post game) Toronto has won 11 straight which ties the franchise record..twice! Once in 2016 and again in 2018. Can they make it twelve?
The stars in this game were Rising Star Terrence Davis of the Raptors, who came off the bench and scored more than all starters and Bulls forward Thaddeus Young. Davis contributed a game high 31 pts and 4 reb while Young put up 21 pts and 7 reb.
After nine lead changes once the 4th quarter started, it was all Toronto from there and that’s where they got their largest lead of the game with 27 pts.
Toronto will stay at home and face the Pacers and hopefully add to their win streak. Tip off is at 7:30pm on Wednesday.
