Pascal Siakam has rewritten the Toronto Raptors' record book.

In the first quarter of Sunday's game against the San Antonio Spurs, the first-time NBA All-Star scored a franchise-record 25 points on 9-for-12 shooting from the field including 5-for-7 shooting from beyond the arc.

A look at the shot chart tells the first-quarter story of Siakam, who continues to work to find his rhythm in his eighth game back from a groin injury that caused him to miss three weeks.

Siakam's 25 surpassed the previously-held record of points in any quarter which was 22, set by Kyle Lowry in December 2015.

He didn't quite reach 100 points he was on pace for scoring, but Siakam finished with a game-high 35 points, leading the Raptors to a four-point win over the Spurs.

This season, Siakam is averaging a team-high 23.5 points per game to go along with 7.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists, numbers good enough to earn a starting spot in the 2020 NBA All-Star Game.
