  • Game Preview Raptors vs Suns        Holly Mac Kenzie

On Monday night in Utah, the Raptors had their most complete performance of the season, with strong contributions up and down the roster to dominate a talented Jazz team on the second night of a back-to-back. Lowry is averaging a league-best 11.6 assists per game, which is way up from his previous career high of 7.4.

With their win over the Jazz, the Raptors improved 10-1 on the season, which is the best record in the Eastern Conference and tops in the National Basketball Association overall. Lowry has had his best start to a season as a Raptor and he's clearly found his comfort running more of the offense in years past and he's kept his teammates involved, finding ways to get them shots where they're at their most comfortable.

Ibaka finished 15-of-17 from the field and didn't miss a shot until 5:16 of the third quarter.

Toronto is now 3-0 on the road trip and 10-1 on the season. (Jack in the Box is safe - they give out two free tacos to Lakers fans if L.A. wins and holds the other team under 100 points, that's not happening this season.) The Lakers were going to be a work in progress this season, a team that would have to learn to win, but the defense has been the slow part of that process.

It didn't look good early on for the Toronto Raptors.

"We haven't had a lot of success against this team either at home or away for a long time so this is a really good win", said James.

An interesting visitor showed up to the Utah Jazz game Monday night as they played the Toronto Raptors at Vivint Arena.

Powell was holding his shoulder after sustaining the injury in the second quarter and was immediately taken into the locker room by the Raptors' medical staff. Just as bad as you can play for a month you're going to round out a great month or two.

A video posted on Twitter last week primarily featured highlights from the game of Suns big man Tom Chambers, who was born in Ogden, then played collegiately for the Runnin' Utes and played for the Jazz from 1993-1995. He was reportedly available to return off the bench after getting it popped back in, but he did not get back on the court. Ibaka has reached double digits in points in 10 straight games, before fouling out at the nine minute mark of the fourth quarter. VanVleet and Anunoby, who have missed a combined seven games already this season, both started to find a groove offensively: their 17 points each were season highs.

James and the Lakers are back in action on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
