Raptors beat Spurs in defensive battle

Raptors beat Spurs in defensive battle Raptors beat Spurs in defensive battle
Shannon Reynolds | 20 January, 2018, 17:08

DeRozan was fouled but missed both free throws, giving San Antonio a chance to tie, but the Spurs couldn't get a shot off in time. DeMar DeRozan chipped in with 21 points for Toronto and Jonas Valanciunas recorded another double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

The Raptors beat San Antonio 86-83 Friday night. Even for a team missing several of its best shot creators that is a shockingly low number.

Reserve guard/forward C.J. Miles played a season-high 26 minutes Wednesday night and led the Raptors with 21 points, which opened things up for other players.

The Toronto Raptors are a great offensive team that will look to push the ball up the court.

Lakers 99, Pacers 86: Jordan Clarkson scored 16 of his season-high 33 points in the final quarter to lead Los Angeles to a 99-86 victory over in at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The Spurs continued a remarkable stretch of poor shooting.

Over the years, San Antonio went from a defensive team to one that could score in bunches.

The Spurs will be without Rudy Gay (right heel bursitis), Manu Ginobili (right thigh contusion) and Kawhi Leonard (right quadriceps tendinopathy) for the game in Toronto.

Methodical might be the best way to describe the Spurs as now constituted, the offence often going through the post in a high-low set that has Pau Gasol at the top of the key, Aldridge carving space inside. "And when he gets it going like that you just kind of know that they aren't going to leave him as much".

Tony Parker wasn't making shots, but he wasn't alone. Ginobili returned to Texas after the Spurs won at Brooklyn on Wednesday. The first quarter was competitive and San Antonio ended the first twelve minutes up 18-17.

And then there's the team's iconic head coach in Gregg Popovich, a five-time National Basketball Association champion whose run was aided by the luck of the lottery when San Antonio picked first overall to select Tim Duncan in 1997, the year the Raptors took this skinny high schooler named Tracy McGrady.

"They're a well-rounded group", DeRozan said of the Spurs.

Without Leonard, it seems highly doubtful San Antonio can beat the likes of a Golden State or a Houston in a best-of-seven series.

The sellout crowd of 19,800 gave DeRozan a standing ovation in the first quarter when it was announced that he would be competing in his fourth NBA All-Star Game, his second straight year as a starter for the Eastern Conference.

The Raptors had Valanciunas on Aldridge, who has a lethal fadeaway and equally effective face-up game, occasionally putting the ball on the floor. The team showed a tribute video between the first and second quarters.

Wizards 122, Pistons 112: Bradley Beal and Kelly Oubre Jr. had 26 points apiece and Washington scored 45 in the third quarter before holding off host Detroit. However, in the second quarter, Toronto was able to pick up the pace and hit 11 of 20 shots to take a 44-37 lead into halftime.

San Antonio made only two of its seven three-point attempts.
