8:32 p.m. - Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam and Jonas Valanciunas have had a lot of success on both ends this quarter. Following a Valanciunas 3-pointer in transition, the Toronto Raptors now lead 70-62 with 8:16 to play in the third.

8:26 p.m. - The Toronto Raptors could be terrifying defensively this season. We're getting a taste of it this quarter, with Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam switching basically everything in the backcourt.
