The Raptors have added their fifth victory in seven games this season after completing a hard work against Sacramento Kings (124-120) in which he has stood out especially Serge Ibaka (21 points) with his best course performance.
After his defeat against Milwaukee Bucks, the Canadian team resumed the path of victory to be placed in the fifth position of the Eastern Conference against an opponent who arrived as the penultimate of the West, but with positive feelings after chaining two victories.
Kyle Lowry showed again that this season he has taken a step forward before the march of Kawhi Leonard and was Toronto's top scorer with 24 points and very good aim from the perimeter (5/7 in triples). Pascal Siakam's 'double-double' (23 and 13 rebounds) was also essential, as was Ibaka.
Starting from the bench and in just 23 minutes, the Hispanic-Congolese was very aggressive in attack and starred in the play of the night, a spectacular mate in the face of an opponent when the game began to be decided in the last quarter.
On the other hand, Marc Gasol returned to direct the offensive operations and also collaborated in attack with 12 points. Despite the tightness of the final score and Harrison Barnes points (26), the Kings had no real options of victory in the last minutes and ended up fitting a fair defeat at the Scotiabank Arena.
