Pascal Siakam calls Toronto Raptors rookie Terence Davis 'special' following Indiana Pacers win

In Friday's win over the Indiana Pacers, it was Terence Davis who stole the show for the Toronto Raptors.

Davis was Toronto's third-leading scorer for the game, coming up with 17 points in his 25 minutes off the bench. 11 of those points came in the fourth quarter, when the Raptors held off one last push from the Pacers to extend the franchise's record to 13 straight wins.

Davis also had a big block in the fourth quarter. With 6:49 remaining in the game, he swatted Doug McDermott's 3-point attempt from the left corner, an area the Pacers forward has been automatic this season.

After the game, Pascal Siakam called Davis "special" when talking about what he brings to this team.

"We just try to calm him down a little bit," Siakam said, per Eric Koreen of The Athletic. "Me, Fred, we try to make sure he doesn't get too excited.

"Man, he's special. The things that he does, not being drafted and not caring what's going on out there. No matter who the defender is, no matter who the opponent is, he doesn't back down.

"We can just admire that."

Davis is now averaging 7.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 17.2 minutes per game on the season. He's scored in double figures in 18 games, ranking him 13th among first-year players.

According to NBA.com, the Raptors have been 11.3 points per 100 possessions with him on the court, giving him the best net rating on the team.

Not bad for an undrafted rookie.
