Terence Davis’ Career Night Extends Toronto Raptors Win Streak to 11
A career-high 31 points from Terence Davis allowed the Toronto Raptors to continue rolling.
“The guys kept finding me,” said Davis following the Raptors 129-102 victory over the Chicago Bulls. “Fred, he said I had 28, so he gave me the ball again to get 30. I thought was pretty cool.”
The undrafted rookie came out with a vengeance after not being selected for the NBA Rising Stars game set for All-Star Weekend. With Marc Gasol, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and Norman Powell all out with injury, Davis gave the Raptors the spark they needed to blow past the Bulls with a dominant performance.
“Man it was beautiful,” Serge Ibaka said. “From the first day I saw him I knew he had talent. But even with talent you still need to have the right people around you. He had a good game tonight, but (Monday) I will be telling him, ‘Yeah that was good, but you still have a ways to go.'”
Including 14 points in the final frame, Davis helped ignite a strong second half push which saw the Raptors outscore the Bulls 69-39. With the win, the Raptors completed a season sweep of the team from The Windy City.
“At the end of the day, we take our jobs very seriously. And when we have opportunities to go out there and cheer for each other and have fun with each other, it means a lot,” Kyle Lowry said. “We don’t take any of it for granted. We’re really serious about winning games and going out there and competing. And when guys have good nights and have records set and things like that, we celebrate together.”
With an 11 game win-streak in hand, the Raptors will look to set a new franchise mark against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.
