4. Beating the Los Angeles Lakers Without Lowry and Ibaka (Nov 10, 2019)
At my number four spot I have another game from the beginning of the season, it’s the time the Toronto Raptors beat a LeBron James led Los Angeles Lakers team without two of their starters in Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka.
Just like the Philadelphia game, this game was a fun watch to watch as the defending champions held on for the important win without two very important starters. This game had Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet written all over it as both players combined for 47 points, 18 rebounds, and 14 assists.
With Lowry out of the lineup, VanVleet had to chew up a big chunk of minutes and he did that without disappointing, anyone, as he played almost 40 minutes and put up tremendous numbers 23 PTS / 7 RB / 10 A. (Stats from NBA.com)
