Raptors break record for longest win streak by Canadian sports franchise

Raptors break record for longest win streak by Canadian sports franchise Raptors break record for longest win streak by Canadian sports franchise

Toronto, led by 31 points from Pascal Siakam, found a way to prevail in yet another close contest with a 137-126 decision against a Minnesota team that almost won a second straight game against the league's elite after snapping its own 14-game losing streak with a blowout win at home over the LA Clippers on Saturday.

The Raptors used an 11-0 run to lead by nine points with 4:42 remaining in the third quarter.

Despite the 137-126 loss to the Toronto Raptors, Towns was in good spirits.

Anunoby must not have thought much during Monday's game against Minnesota. "Super excited about this group".

"A lot of credit to them", Timberwolves coach Ryan Saunders said. We know what Karl [-Anthony Towns] does and what he brings to the table. "I'm looking forward to this challenge to figure out what we can do to get better every day".

D'Angelo Russell, playing his first game for Minnesota after being acquired in a trade with the Golden State Warriors, scored 22 points. He also showed good chemistry with his close friend Towns, whom he is living with until he gets settled in Minneapolis, in the pick-and-roll.

"It was a lot of fun", Towns said per Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.

After those blistering first three quarters, Russell's production tailed off in the fourth.

Toronto wasn't much better at taking care of the ball.

Lowry returned after missing Saturday's victory over Brooklyn due to the whiplash, but Serge Ibaka sat down due to flu-like symptoms.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson contributed 21 points and Fred VanVleet had 16 for the Raptors, who shot 57.3 per cent from the field.

"It's definitely different", Hollis-Jefferson said of trying to match up with centers.

"It's definitely about being mentally tough".

Not that Anunoby was the only one balling out at Scotiabank Arena on Monday night; the Raptors boasted four players with at least 20 points, led by an outburst by Pascal Siakam (34 points) on a night when he and Kyle Lowry (27 points) were presented with their All-Star Game jerseys.
