Overall this was the best game he had played and the best game his team had played defensively. They held the Pistons to only 36% shooting from the feild and 25% from the three point line. Andre Drummond lead the Pisons with 17 points and 17 rebounds, as he continues his monster season. Drummond now has his 10th straight double- digit points and rebound total. This is the most since Zach Randolph back in 2012. Next for the Pistons is a home game againist the Cavaliers Tuesday night. For the Lakers they try to make it two in a row Monday night when they travel to play the Suns.

NBA: Preseason-Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles LakersKyle Lowry scored 18 of his 25 points in the first half to lead the Raptors past the Lakers. The three point shooting was excellent for the Raptors, as they shot 45%.  The Raptors took advantage of the 15 turnovers the Lakers had. They  scored 21 points off there mistakes. Raptors also distributed the ball well, having 8 different players scoring in double figures “It’s always important to play with the lead, but we have to find ways to finish games out and be as strong as we were tonight,” Lowry said.  The Raptors are now 8-6 and look to gain ground on the top teams in the Eastern Conference. A bright spot for the Lakers was that second year player Julius Randle had 18 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Lakers. Kobe Bryant led the team with 5 assists, but he only had 10 points in 38 minutes.  Despite having  a higher shooting percentage and having more points in paint, the Lakers still ended up getting dominated.  The Lakers will try to rebound at home against Portland Sunday night.
