The Toronto Raptors were among the best of the best in the NBA before the season came to a complete stop, so let’s relive some of the teams greatest moments from the 2019-20 season.
The Toronto Raptors were arguably the best team in the NBA when the league came to a stop on March 11th due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
It stinks that the regular season has a chance of not returning but playoffs will more than likely happen and that’s fine too.
With that being said, let’s take a look back at some of the Toronto Raptors greatest moments from the 2019-20 season.
5. Marc Gasol Holds Joel Embiid to 0 Points and Picks up a win (Nov 25, 2019)
At my number five spot I have this game… ah yes this game, I hope you all remember this game. This game against the Philadelphia 76ers was a fun one to watch as not only did the Toronto Raptors pick up a 101-96 win but Marc Gasol held Joel Embiid to zero points on the scoresheet.
It seems like Gasol always has Embiid’s number when they match up against each other, and that game on November 25th was proof. Marc Gasol didn’t shoot the greatest from the field either as he went 1-8 but he did work hard in the other categories picking up six rebounds and nine assists.
You look at Embiid though he dominated the glass picking up 13 rebounds but only adding two assists to go along with his 0-11 shooting from the field. Safe to say they should always lock Gasol on Embiid when these two Eastern Conference powerhouses go toe to toe. (Stats from NBA.com)
