The Toronto Raptors entered the game without Pascal Siakam and Norman Powell and when the scoreline read 85-55 with just over two minutes left in Q3, not many would have fathomed a comeback for the Raptors. The Raptors, however, rallied well under pressure to erase the 30-point lead in Q4. Kyle Lowry inspired the unlikely comeback for the Raptors with a 32 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists showing. Fellow teammates Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Chris Boucher combined to score 39 points for the Raptors.
