NBA: Great win for the Raptors and a record for Siakam

Pascal Siakam was on the spotlight on Wednesday night to allow Toronto to beat the Knicks (113-106). The Raptors thus put an end to a negative series of six losses in a row, while the New Yorkers see their good momentum of 8 straight wins end.

While they remained on a six-game losing streak, the Toronto Raptors managed a nice move on Wednesday night against the New York Knicks. The Canadians have finally returned to winning by stopping Tom Thibodeau's men who, unlike their opponents, remained on a positive streak of eight straight wins. The Toronto Raptors showed a better face for most of the game. And can thank their man in form of the moment: Pascal Siakam. On fire, the Cameroonian slammed 52 points at 17/25 shooting. A record for the 28 years old player.

Pascal Siakam and his team were not far from recording their seventh consecutive defeat in this game. While they led for a long time, the Canadians saw the New Yorkers come back to equality with two minutes to go (102-102, 46th). Moment chosen by the Cameroonian to remind that it is him who was the law in this game. He scored his last seven points of the period, including a final basket with a foul, to end the suspense in the last moments.

Pascal Siakam becomes the second Toronto player to surpass the 50-point mark in a game, behind his teammate Fred VanVleet. The latter did not fail to praise his performance after the game. "He's a special player and special players shine in big moments. He puts his name alongside great players with this performance here. He carried us tonight, it was incredible, it's great to see him in such form," he said.
