Two things in particular have plagued the Raptors this week: 3-point shooting and turnovers.
"Coach just wants us to go play hard for him, and he deserves that", Irving said.
Toronto has now scored 100-plus points in all 17 games this season and this was the second time they limited an opponent to less than 100 points.
Butler, acquired on Monday from the Minnesota Timberwolves, got a warm welcome from Philly fans and made a quick impact as the hosts seized a 16-point lead in the first quarter. Leonard is also averaging almost 8 rebounds and 2 steals per game.
In 13 games this season, Morris has been on a rampage, averaging 14.8 points 6.8 rebounds on 50.4 percent shooting from the field and 48.4 percent shooting from three-point range.
Serge Ibaka held nothing back with this vicious slam.
"We a lot of guys that can make shots, and when we move the ball, find the open man, we shoot with more confidence and they go in", Gobert said. On top of that, Kawhi Leonard was undergoing his scheduled rest. The Raptors are good, but their bench group of O.G. Anunoby, Fred Van Vleet, Delon Wright and C.J. Miles isn't having the same impact it did a year ago, and the jury is still out on Leonard's ability to stay healthy for an entire season.
SpaceX gets approval for 7,500 more satellites
Alan Musk's company Space-X will install 12,000 satellites in the orbit of the Earth in the next nine years. If the SpaceX is able to launch all the proposed satellites to space, the number will increase six-fold.
The Celtics were coming off a 123-116 overtime win against Toronto.
If Chicago has any chance of beating Toronto on Saturday, they'll need LaVine to get his game back on track.
He's one of the keys to Boston's ability to play small without giving up too much size.
Here are my takeaways from the Raptors' 122-83 win over the Bulls. Ibaka has also plateaued after a promising start to his career in Oklahoma City, but he's still a strong offensive rebounder. The game airs at 6 PM (CT) on ESPN. We're in a position now where we have an opportunity to start building that. Ryan Arcidiacono, Antonio Blakeney and Justin Holiday are now the Bulls' best 3 point shooters, and they'll need to deliver when the Raptors' defense loads up on LaVine.
The Toronto Raptors, saddled with their first two-game losing streak of the season, visit TD Garden Friday night for the second battle of the season between the teams picked to finish atop the Eastern Conference. We send out our congratulations to KG on the well-deserved honor.
Toronto regained a 107-103 lead with 1:29 remaining in regulation, but Tatum's dunk and Gordon Hayward's free throws pulled Boston level, while Leonard missed a potential game-winner at the buzzer.
