Blazers Outduel Siakam, Raptors
The Toronto Raptors are NOT having a good season at all, and that, unfortunately for them and their fans, continued on Monday night as they lost a very close one to the Portland Trail Blazers. Pascal Siakam, a man many believed to be on the way to becoming a superstar, came up with a triple-double, scoring 22 points, grabbing 13 rebounds, and dishing out ten assists, but in the end it didn’t matter as CJ McCollum hit the game-winning shot with 9.6 seconds to go.
That was part of 30 total on the evening for McCollum and it ended up handing them the 112-111 win over a now 2-8 Toronto team that has won just once in seven outings on the road. The Blazers, meanwhile, are at 6-4 in what has been a roller coaster ride for most teams thus far.
