Raptors beat Kings, finish trip out west a flawless 4-0

Toronto Raptors vs Sacramento Kings

With its nine-point win over Sacramento, Toronto closed out its four-game West Coast trip with a ideal record of 4-0 to advance to a league-best 11-1 record on the season. The Kings picking up full court resulted in the Raptors getting into their sets eight to nine seconds into the shot clock and, in turn, the team was forced to take a number of low-quality shots in late clock situations; Toronto shot 11-for-36 (30.6 percent) from deep in the win.

The Toronto Raptors swept their notoriously hard four-game West Coast road trip and kept their flawless record with Kawhi Leonard in the lineup intact with a 114-105 win over the Sacramento Kings.

The Kings will get a big boost, though, as guard Bogdan Bogdanovic is set to make his season debut following an offseason procedure to fix a torn meniscus in his left knee.

Like the rest of his team, Lowry has had better nights this season.

Lowry struggled with his three-point shot on Wednesday, going just 2-8 from beyond the arc.

Led by Kawhi Leonard, who shot a flawless 9-for-9 from the charity stripe, the Raptors finished the game shooting 21-for-23 from the free throw line, sinking eight more free throws than the Kings.

But it wasn't all positive news on the injury front Wednesday for the Raps.

Although hopefully for an easy game the Raptors narrowly squeaked out a victory against the Phoenix Suns on the tailwind of a 14-2 fourth-quarter run. On the next possession, Leonard got a mismatch on the perimeter and drilled a three-pointer. In what felt like a head-to-head battle between Lowry and Ibaka I opted for Lowry. Just like that it was 112-101, and the game was effectively over.

The trio of De'Arron Fox, Buddy Hield and centre Willie Cauley-Stein combined for 68 of the Kings 103 points and 13 of their 31 boards.

The franchise has infamously drafted as poorly as any in the last decade but struck gold with 2017 fifth-overall pick Fox, who scored 20 points against the Raptors and looks like he'll be a mainstay in the Kings' backcourt for years. The Kings will continue to catch teams off guard this year and will be a force to be reckoned with in years to come.

Sacramento had plenty of opportunities to lay down but hung in the game. Lowry scored 17 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dropped 11 dimes doing so in only 29 minutes of work. Just as impressive is his eighth-ranked AST/TO ratio. As well as they've played it's still early in the season and many around the team are still of the belief that they can get even better. Then again, literally every frontcourt in the National Basketball Association is the "slower frontcourt" when matched up with Siakam.
