Raptors star to miss second straight game with sore ankle

Panic time? No? Welcome to basketball purgatory home of the Suns

Serge Ibaka delivered a career-high 34 points in a masterful display of shooting as the Kawhi Leonard-less Toronto Raptors rolled over the Los Angeles Lakers 121-107 on Sunday (Monday in Manila).

"I was just focused", he said afterward.

"This isn't our ceiling", Leonard said. Though they played better basketball as the game went on, they were never able to overcome that slow start.

"I don't really like to talk about it being disappointing". Toronto had a good bench last season as well. Three other Raptors players registered double-digit scoring numbers including 15 points from Danny Green, 14 points from Jonas Valanciunas and 11 points from Delon Wright. "We just have to be better, and that was it".

"There are a lot of things we could have done better", James said. Toronto was forced to re-insert its starters in the final minutes to preserve the win.

A Republican who served in the House will become the first woman to represent Tennessee in the Senate . In 1982, 58 per cent of women voted for Democrats and 41 per cent voted for Republicans .

Willie Cauley-Stein and Buddy Hield scored 24 points apiece for Sacramento.

The franchise has infamously drafted as poorly as any in the last decade but struck gold with 2017 fifth-overall pick Fox, who scored 20 points against the Raptors and looks like he'll be a mainstay in the Kings' backcourt for years.

The Kings have lost two straight since winning five in a row. If we go back to Josh, do we put him in for Rondo?

Without a doubt, Leonard is the important piece of Toronto's rotation.

He has made 27 of his past 29 attempts from the field over three games, which included the final four shots in Phoenix. The previous record was held by Damon Stoudamire, who set the record during the Raptors' inaugural season in 1996.

"They just came out and hit us right in the mouth", said Lakers forward LeBron James. But Nick Nurse, Toronto's first-year head coach, has switched Ibaka to playing center full time this season, and the move has paid immediate dividends. "We tried to explain that that's part of how this works, but it doesn't seem like we took that to heart".

The Raptors broke the game open with a 15-3 run that bridged the second and third quarter.

Kings: Bogdan Bogdanovic made his season debut after missing the first 10 games recovering from a pair of procedures on his left knee.

Nemanja Bjelica was also T'd up after reacting to being called for a foul in the third, prompting the crowd to voice their displeasure with the officiating.

The Lakers responded by holding on for a 114-110 road win and snapping a 16-game losing streak to the Trail Blazers on Saturday. While Walton won't be fired soon, there is the potential for him to see the door if things don't change.

Raptors: Host the New York Knicks on Saturday.
