Week four saw the Toronto Raptors finish with an underwhelming 1-2 record as they finished out their Western Conference road trip. What five Raptor performances stood out the most from this week?
The first game of the week against the Los Angeles Clippers was always going to be a tough challenge to overcome on the 2nd night of a back to back. In a highly defensive game where neither team reached the 100 point mark, the Clippers defense and lack of depth at the point guard spot cost the Raptors the game.
The second game, against the Portland Trailblazers, was a game the Raptors could look to exploit. The Trail Blazers were still missing a reliable power forward after Zach Collin’s injury, something that Pascal Siakam was able to use to his advantage. After shutting down Damian Lillard to nine points, Toronto got back on track with a relatively easy win.
Lastly, heading to Texas, the Raptors never truly got it going against the Dallas Mavericks and 20-year old sensation Luka Doncic. Big performances by Doncic, Kristaps Porzingis, and Delon Wright, as well as, a horrendous performance by Siakam allowed the Mavs to secure the win with ease.
After having a lot of success prior to week four, the Raptors deserve somewhat of a pass here. There were still some great performances, and while a 1-2 week is never idea, these types of stretches do happen.
With that being said, what were the top five Raptor performances from week four?
