• Jonas Valanciunas dominated the Hawks for 16 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in the Raptors’ easy win.

    If you take away JV’s abbreviated 11-minute outing last game, he’s been a double-double machine lately. Beyond his scoring and rebounding though, JV brought the defense tonight with three blocks, his first three-block game in over a month and just his third this season. He wasn’t the only Raptor big to enjoy a nice defensive stat night. They all got in on the action with Jakob Poeltl blocking two shots and grabbing a steal to go with his six points and five boards. Pascal Siakam had a block and a steal along with six points and four rebounds. And Serge Ibaka had nice minutes next to JV with 12 points, three boards, a steal and a block. Toronto’s biggest brought their best at the defensive end and it’ll be interesting to see who can do it consistently.
