The Toronto Raptors came away with a much-needed win over the Sacramento Kings on Friday, snapping a three-game losing skid.
The win puts the Raptors at 1-2 on their six-game road trip and the show continues on Sunday when they travel to take on the first-place Golden State Warriors.
If Toronto is going to beat the Warriors, it will need the version of Pascal Siakam that it saw against the Kings. Coming off of what was arguably his worst game of the season against the Utah Jazz where Siakam scored just four points while shooting 2-for-14 from the field, the one-time All-Star bounced back in a big way against Sacramento.
He went for a season-high 32 points on near-perfect efficiency of 10-for-12 from the field, 3-for-3 from 3-point range and 9-for-10 from the free throw line.

The performance gave the Raptors the boost they needed with starting forward OG Anunoby out of the lineup, and they might need another one of these out of Siakam if Anunoby is unable to suit up on Sunday.
They'll be tasked with stopping the hottest player in basketball right now, as Stephen Curry is scorching to start the season.
The MVP frontrunner is coming off of another remarkable game where he single-handedly outscored the Cleveland Cavaliers in the fourth quarter to give the Warriors the victory.

He sat out the team's win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday as a rest game, but will surely be ready to go against Toronto.
The Warriors are currently 14-2, owners of the best record in the NBA.
