NBA wrap: Lakers' issues continue with blowout loss at home to Raptors

Game Preview Raptors vs Suns        Holly Mac Kenzie

Elsewhere in the category of former University of Utah players in the National Basketball Association with stellar fashion, Kyle Kuzma rocked a Kobe Bryant jersey on Sunday before the Los Angeles Lakers took on Toronto. Leonard has missed the previous two games with left ankle soreness after leaving the floor in the final two minutes of the team's victory in Phoenix in November 2.

At 10-1 and boasting the second best offensive rating in the league (114.8) and the No. 9 ranked defence (106.1), Toronto has never flown higher before. After a solid rookie campaign, Anunoby is averaging 7.8 points while shooting 45 percent from the floor and 33 percent from beyond the arc in 24 minutes per game this season.

Equally as impressive as Lowry leading the league in assists is how well he's taking care of the ball. At the end of a long road trip for the Raptors, this could have the makings of a trap game, but thus far this season Nurse has had the answers most of the time and has been able to have his team prepared for the challenge each game offered. They did so without their top player, Kawhi Leonard, who sat out the game due to left ankle soreness.

Kawhi Leonard has been getting more MVP buzz than Lowry to start the season, but Lowry has been just as good as his new teammate. The two form a natural pairing, with Fox being a speedy point guard who lives in transition and Hield being someone teams have to account for as soon as he crosses halfcourt.

Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri still remains optimistic that his group can convince Leonard to stay in Toronto - otherwise the trade would essentially be a bust, with Leonard having been a one-year rental.

On Tuesday, she is looking for about 30 percent of the county's 10,278 voters to visit the polls for the General Election. During the last midterm election, almost 3.19 million Floridians cast their ballots before Election Day.

With Lowry on the court, the Raptors have an offensive rating of 122.9 and a defensive rating of 105.5, giving him the exact same net rating as Stephen Curry on the season.

Before acquiring Leonard from the Spurs over the summer, the Raptors swept the season series from the Kings previous year. "When you get into a comfort zone early like that, shots are going to fall". Toronto was forced to re-insert its starters in the final minutes to preserve the win.

"I was really proud of the way we held our composure", Raptors coach Nick Nurse told reporters after the game.

And you wonder why his teammates - both former and current - call him a "pitbull".
