Pascal Siakam was the leading scorer for the Raptors in their blow out loss to the Boston Celtics. He scored 17 points but struggled from the field. He was 6/17 from the field and 0/4 from deep.
Siakam has been struggling from beyond the arc as of late:
Pascal Siakam has missed 15 of 16 three-point attempts since going 5-8 against Milwaukee.

Darko Rajakovic suffered his worst loss as a head coach. He and the Raptors had no answer for the Celtics. Rajakovic seemed annoyed with Joe Mazzulla’s decision to challenge a play with the Celtics up 27 with 3:39 left to play.
Speaking of decisions, Masai Ujiri has many important decisions to make. Including what he’s going to do with Pascal Siakam and O.G. Anunoby who are set to become unrestricted free agents next summer.
Raptors 905 lost the game 118-101 to College Park Skyhawks. The 905 are now 0-2 to start their season.
Markquis Nowell had 16 points and 7 assists in the loss. As for the other Raptors’ two-way players, Ron Harper Jr. and Javon Freeman-Liberty did not play.
Gary Trent Jr. questionable vs. Wizards
The Raptors bench struggled against the Celtics. Gary Trent Jr. did not play due to plantar fasciitis on his right foot.
Trent Jr. is now listed as questionable against the Wizards:
