Toronto Raptors on song against Utah Jazz

Kawhi Leonard Raptors

Kawhi Leonard is sitting out with foot soreness when the Toronto Raptors face the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night. Serge Ibaka stepped up in his absence against the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz, combining to score 51 points on 23-for-25 shooting from the field.

"They just came out and hit us right in the mouth", said LeBron James, who finished the 121-107 loss with 18 points, six assists and two rebounds. "At the point of attack we allowed them to get where they wanted to go, however they wanted to go to start the game".

Although Beasley has played a marginal role in the three games he was present for, lakers head coach Luke Walton still expressed his positive sentiment for his return.

Lowry's numbers across the board look even better after that Jazz game, putting him at 17.9 PPG, 11.5 APG and 4.5 RPG with a Player Efficiency Rating of 24.4 and a True Shooting Percentage of 63.8. He did that in Salt Lake City and decided against playing.

Beasley signed a one-year contract with the Lakers in a move that surprised many.

Ibaka's 20 points were a career high for points in any quarter, eclipsing his previous mark of 15.

The Kings are a perennial bottom dweller in recent National Basketball Association history, and were largely projected to have a similar season this year but have surprised by jumping out to a winning record despite playing 7 of their first 10 games on the road while leading the National Basketball Association in pace. But even if James were knocking down triple-doubles every night, he needs help, and the team needs to find its lineup chemistry.

Prior to Monday's game, a photo was posted on the Raptors' Twitter account of guard Delon Wright, who starred at the University of Utah, wearing a sweet Utes jacket.

Pay too much attention to one of them and it's usually the other who benefits from it.

The Raptors pushed their lead to as many as 31 points in the first half, eliciting boos from the Staples Center crowd. At halftime, Toronto kept their foot on the gas leading 71-49.

It's impressive. The Suns and Booker really want him to be an All-Star guard this season, and if he were in the East I'd say "done deal", but in the West - Stephen Curry, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Jimmy Butler, Donovan Mitchell - it's tough to crack the club.

"We definitely got to give them credit. But you never let the outside noise get to you and if you do that, that can cause you problems".
