Lowry scores 33 to lead Raptors to 11th straight over Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Toronto Raptors odds picks and best bets

But the gumption the Raptors showed to take those body blows and strike back with just as much vigour was a sign that times have changed, that the swagger of winning a championship shines through even in the face of its darkest enemy.

Just as the other teams had done on the first two nights of National Basketball Association play in the re-start, the Lakers and Raptors all wore Black Lives Matter shirts and knelt arm in arm along the sideline during the pre-game anthems.

Nurse is fine with his club continuing to be overlooked, and would rather let the Raptors' play speak for itself. Lowry added that what he's seen from OG in Year 3 leads him to believe the best is yet to come, adding that "the one thing about OG, man, is guys don't understand him as much as they want to but he's going to be really good in this league for a long time".

When James went to the bench with seven minutes remaining in the game, the Raptors ripped off a 10-0 run to take a lead they would never relinquish.

"That's a great team", he told reporters, per the Los Angeles Times (subscription required). Before that, it had been a close game, with Toronto only leading 72-70 entering the fourth quarter.

Lowry drained a three over the outstretched hands of Kuzma with 3:01 to play to put Toronto up by 11, hollering animatedly to his teammates during the ensuing timeout. For his part, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse admitted that he had Colin Kaepernick in mind while he was kneeling. "Just being aggressive and putting pressure on the rim and just make the next play, make the right play". "He was scoring and flying around and taking charges and competing and getting us some critical buckets".

Saturday's game was the Raptors' first of eight seeding-round matchups each of the 22 teams are playing in the NBA's "bubble" at Walt Disney World.

"Nick says he's going to kind of ease us back in and use it as an exhibition", Lowry said. Video boards of 300 virtual fans have replaced the jam-packed crowds Toronto is accustomed to playing in front of. He got in front of Dion Waiters and drew his 31st charge of the season - a stat that leads the National Basketball Association. "Go out there and talk about voter suppression. education reform, worrying about getting justice for Breonna Taylor".

"These are all things that I gave me going and wanted me to do my job the best I can", said, donning a Black Lives Matter hat.

Raptors veteran Marc Gasol called the peaceful anthem protest "huge". "And it's going to continue to work, because you have to obviously keep pounding the rock", he said. We all trust each other. Both teams warmed up in black shirts with "Black Lives Matter".
