A Win to Get Things Started

Raps Start Preseason with Win

Toronto Raptors Beat Los Angeles Clippers 121-113 in Preseason Debut

No better way to get the season started than with a hard thought victory.

The Toronto Raptors tipped off their five-game preseason schedule on Sunday night with a 121-113 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers in the exotic state of Hawaii. Offering a glimpse into what may very well be the different line-ups that Head Coach Dwane Casey will use during the season, the Raptors came out firing on the offensive end, showing little signs of rust.

With C.J. Miles simply taking over the starting small forward role left voided with the departure of DeMarre Carroll, the Raptors watched each member in their starting line-up finish with double-digit points. Norman Powell and the Raptors incumbent back-up point guard Delon Wright finished the night with 16-and-11 points apiece.

Kyle Lowry led the way for the Raptors, finishing the night with 17-points on a very impressive 60% shooting night. The one concern, which¬†will most likely manifest into the regular season was the Raptors’ inability to consistently shoot the three. Despite shooting 50% from the field for the game, the Raptors took 43-three pointers as a team, converting on only 25.6% of their chances.

The Raptors will take on the Clippers once again on the 4th in a very rare 1:00AM tilt.
