NOTES:
  • After game 3: Marc Gasol on Lowry: "That rebound. Talk about that rebound. That was the game. That's Kyle. And that has nothing to do with scoring. He stuck his nose in there, he ran through that ball and he got the rebound. He won the game for us."
  • Going into this series, Siakam had never logged more than 28 minutes in any of his 12 career playoff games. He's averaging 40.1 minutes this postseason. Only Paul George (41.6) has played more. (@jlew1050)
  • No other Raptor other than Vince Carter has scored 30 or more points in a playoff game in his first three seasons--until Pascal Siakam.
  • In 1997, Charles Barkley threw a man through a bar window in Orlando.
  • Load management is over. Nick Nurse revealed after the game that Kawhi had not practised for the previous two days while battling an illness, yet fought through it to give the Raps 37 minutes.
  • In Game 3, Kyle Lowry recorded his 7th playoff points-assists double-double. This is more than all other Raptors combined: Chris Childs (3), Jose Calderon (1), T.J. Ford (1), Cory Joseph (1).
  • Marc Gasol has been doing work on Nikola Vucevic (h/t reddit /u/raptorsbucketnator) :
