Toronto Raptors’ Pascal Siakam celebrated his birthday with 36 points, seven rebounds and five assists
The Toronto Raptors recorded their biggest win in history with a 130-77 demolition of the Golden State Warriors.
The 53-point profit margin could have been worse, as the Raptors were suddenly 61 points ahead.
It was the third worst loss in history for the Warriors – and “humiliating for everyone involved,” said coach Steve Kerr.
“We just got destroyed. Not much to say,” he added.
The Warriors were without Stephen Curry and Draymond Green and the loss was their sixth loss in their last seven games.
“I think without Steph and Draymond out there we were a bit rudderless as things went south. We didn’t have the internal struggle we needed to get over the hump,” Kerr said.
“This is a time to search for the soul.”
Pascal Siakam celebrated his 27th birthday with a season high of 36 points for the Raptors, who had lost four games themselves.
Elsewhere the Milwaukee Bucks enjoyed a 127-109 win over In-Form Portland Trail Blazer Thanks to star Giannis Antetokounmpo who scored 47 points – the third time he has reached the 40 point mark this season.
Luka Doncic starred as Dallas Mavericks beat the New York Knicks 99-86 and the Boston Celtics defeat Houston Rockets 118-102.
There were victories for them too Charlotte Hornets, Memphis Grizzlies, Atlanta Hawks, Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns, and LA Lakers.
