Raptors star to miss second straight game with sore ankle

Game Preview Raptors vs Suns        Holly Mac Kenzie

Ibaka finished 15-of-17 from the field and didn't miss a shot until 5:16 of the third quarter.

With averages of 17.9 points, 11.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game, the four-time All-Star has led the Toronto Raptors to a 10-1 start, a record only the Golden State Warriors can match.

The Lakers followed up perhaps their best win of the season on Saturday with one of the worst first quarters in franchise history on Sunday.

As of right now, Toronto is a lot better than Boston and the Raptors have been very impressive.

James Harden scored 28 points, but it was his his lone block which helped the Houston Rockets secure their third consecutive win, 98-94, over the Pacers in Indiana. In fact, Toronto is now holding a 10-1 record, which is good for the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference.

In the locker room, Bron told reporters it felt like the team got "hit in the mouth" and they didn't have a response.

"If teams are going to play small like that and they're gonna switch, then we can send him inside and he can either hurt them with the deep catch post-up, or hurt them on the glass", Nurse said.

The Raptors come into Monday's game against the Utah Jazz with tons of momentum on their side.

"I don't know what it was", Ingram said.

"Obviously that stuff plays into account during the season, but if you ever expect you're going to start winning games because the schedule is lighter or you have more rest days, you're not going to win those games", said Walton. "He did a little bit of both".

Los Angeles held the edge in the second half outscoring Toronto 58-50 in the final two quarters while the allowed them to shoot 25 percent from beyond the arc and forced nine turnovers. You don't look too much into it.

"For me and what I've experienced in this league, I've tried to stay even-keeled", James said. Ask Alexa! Say "Alexa, enable Spreaker" and to start listening simply say "WagerTalk" when asked what you want to listen to! That season, the Jazz played in the Municipal Auditorium, and lost their first six home games before finally beating Portland behind Pete Maravich's 30 points.

Los Angeles takes the floor next on Wednesday night to host the Minnesota Timberwolves.
