TORONTO — Pascal Siakam had 25 points and matched his career-high
with 19 rebounds, Fred VanVleet scored 31 points and the Toronto Raptors beat the Los Angeles Clippers 116-108 … OG Anunoby scored 26
points and Gary Trent Jr. had 10 as the Raptors won for the first time in

also exited protocols, but was unavailable because of a sore right knee …
Marcus Morris Sr. scored 20 points, Terance Mann had 18 and Reggie
Jackson 17 for the Clippers … Amir Coffey scored a season-high 15

attempt to control the spread of COVID-19 … The Raptors finished with
18 offensive rebounds, compared to three for the Clippers, outscored Los
Angeles 21-3 in second-chance points, and had 96 field goal attempts to
LA’s 78 … Toronto’s Chris Boucher snapped a 105-all tie with a pair of
free throws with 2:08 remaining, and Siakam’s slam with 1:34 left gave

TORONTO 114, LA LAKERS 103

LOS ANGELES — Scottie Barnes scored 15 of his 21 points in the first
quarter and the Toronto Raptors held off a late rally by the Los Angeles
Lakers for a 114-103 victory … Gary Trent Jr. had 28 points and Pascal
Siakam scored 27 for Toronto, which has won four straight — all on the

assists … LeBron James had 30 points and nine rebounds for Los Angeles … James was a game-time decision because of soreness in his left
knee but ended up playing 40 minutes … The Raptors piled on early
against the floundering Lakers, scoring the first nine points on the way to
a 33-12 lead after one … Los Angeles was 3 for 25 from the field and
missed all 13 of its 3-pointers in the opening quarter … Avery Bradley had
four points and was the only Lakers player with more than two in the period … Foul trouble was the only thing that slowed Barnes during an impressive first half … He scored 17 points on 8-of-11 shooting in 18
minutes before sitting down with his third foul … Los Angeles mounted a
late charge in the fourth quarter, pulling within 109-97 with 2:19 remaining
on a 3-pointer by James … Horton-Tucker missed a 3 that would have
made the deficit six points, and Siakam and Trent hit free throws to push
Toronto’s lead back to 12.
