Toronto Raptors

The highest scoring games by an opponent against the Toronto Raptors

On March 20, 2005, LeBron James scored a career-high at the time of 56 points in a loss to the Toronto Raptors.

To this day, it's the second-most points a player has ever scored against the Raptors, the most being 81 by Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

James and Bryant aren't the only players to have scored 50 or more points against the Raptors in the franchise's history, though. Here's a look at the most points ever scored by an opponent against the Raptors with an assist from Basketball Reference.

81 - Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers

On Jan. 22, 2006, Bryant made history by scoring 81 points against the Raptors. He shot 28-for-46 from the field, 7-for-13 from the 3-point line and 18-for-20 from the free throw line in a Lakers win.

With Bryant's performance, he became only the second player to score 80 or more points in an NBA game. Chamberlain still holds the record for the most points scored with 100.

56 - LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers

The highest scoring game by an opponent in Toronto. James finished with a double-double, scoring 56 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. It wasn't enough for the Cavaliers to get a win, however, as Jalen Rose (30 points) and Donyell Marshall (24 points) led the Raptors to a 105-98 victory.

54 and 52 - Allen Iverson, Philadelphia 76ers

Iverson had two 50-point games against the Raptors in the 2001 playoffs. He scored 54 points in Game 2 to even the series at 1-1, followed by 52 points in Game 5 to give the 76ers a 3-2 lead.

The Raptors would force a Game 7, but the 76ers prevailed to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

51 - Kevin Durant, Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder

Durant has scored 50 points against the Raptors twice in his NBA career, once with the Warriors, once with the Thunder. Both came in Toronto in tightly contested games.

On March 21, 2014, Durant scored 51 points in a double overtime win for the Thunder. On Nov. 29, 2018, Durant scored 51 points in an overtime loss for the Warriors.

Durant went toe-to-toe with Kawhi Leonard in that game, with Leonard scoring a season-high at the time of 37 points.

51 - Allen Iverson, Philadelphia 76ers

Another 50-point game for Iverson, this one in the regular season. It came in a loss for the 76ers, as Vince Carter's 39 points led the Raptors to a win.

50 - Jamal Crawford, Chicago Bulls

Crawford is the only player in NBA history to have a 50-point game with four different teams. One of those 50-point performances came against the Raptors when he was with the Chicago Bulls.

50 - Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers

Last but not least, Lillard is the sixth player in NBA history to have scored 50 or more points against the Raptors. Once again, the Raptors managed to come away with the win despite Lillard's 50-point outburst thanks to a combined 66 points from DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.
