Sluggish Lakers put on a dismal display in loss to Raptors

"I was just focused", he said afterward. The Raptors push their lead to as many as 31 points in the first half, but the Lakers fight back in the second half.

Kyle Lowry added 21 points and 15 assists for the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors, who haven't lost to the Lakers since 2014.

With the Lakers getting into Los Angeles early Sunday morning, they were ripe for a tough game against the East's best team. "But if we got close enough, we would've had him back on the floor to try to steal that one".

Kawhi Leonard left the Raptors' 107-98 win over the Phoenix Suns with a "jammed foot", according to Toronto head coach Nick Nurse. OG Anunoby took Leonard's spot in the starting lineup and contributed seven points.

An application to carry out forensic testing on Flame has been lodged to be heard at Manly Local Court on Monday. Liam Anderson , 26, was found unconscious with serious head injuries by police just after 6am on Sunday morning.

However, what was a rout for much of the night became competitive late in the fourth when the Lakers' bench unit managed to cut their deficit to 14 points with 4:14 remaining in the game.

The decision deprived Lakers fans of their only chance this season to see Leonard, who could be an unrestricted free agent coveted by their team next summer. Fans at courtside included Denzel Washington, Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Ariel Winter, middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez, New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and UFC featherweight title contender Brian Ortega, who will fight Max Holloway for the belt in Toronto on December 8.

The Lakers' first quarter was shockingly bad. Serge Ibaka is responsible for 20 points in the first on 8-of-8 shooting, personally outscoring the Lakers, as they shoot just 7-for-21 as a team. Ibaka was a flawless 11-of-11 from the field, including a three-pointer, for 26 points in the first half, along with six rebounds and two steals.
