How many times have we seen the Raptors blow a fourth quarter lead in the last few minutes? The answer is too many times. And while this game had every reason to end the same way as the Clippers game, the Toronto Raptors were not going to give up that easy. However, that heartbreaking loss was delivered to them in an missed overtime three by Pascal Siakam.
Based on the team’s prior success over the last few years, it is difficult to not be upset when they lose close games to good teams. In reality, however, there are a lot of things to feel good about.
The best piece of Raptors news is that Pascal Siakam is looking elite again. Averaging better than 30 points in his last three games, the Toronto Raptors finally have their star back from the 2019 – 2020 regular season.
