Toronto Raptors 123 Orlando Magic 108
The Toronto Raptors took it to the Orlando Magic on the road Tuesday night.
Kyle Lowry and the crew got contributions from all over the lineup but none bigger than Fred VanVleets.
The Raptors star guard poured in a career high 54 points setting a Raptors franchise record as well as scoring the most points ever scored by an un-drafted player in league history.
VanVleets monumental achievement is certainly something to be celebrated.
Fred shot 17 of 23 from the floor on Tuesday night while hitting 11 of 13 threes.
VanVleets story has been told many times but its one that must be told over and over again.
Being drafted in the second round Fred decided it was better to bet on himself and refused the offer.
Spending years in the g-league with the Raptors 905 VanVleet was a standout player.
Eventually getting called up to play for the Raptors in the NBA VanVleet thrived and has never looked back.
The Raptors will now look to build on this momentum as they head into a big matchup with the Nets on Friday night.
Toronto will have their hands full as they take on the leagues best offence that boasts a lineup of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden
If the Raptors have shown anything, its that you cannot count out the underdog, cause this where the Raps thrive.
Tip off against the Nets is set for 7:30pm EST.
