With the Raptors 905 hosting their first school day game of the year Tuesday morning, it was only right that they put on a clinic.

The team advanced to 4-1 on the season by defeating the Erie BayHawks 145-103, leading by as many as 55 points in a win in which there were a number of eye-popping stats.

The 905's 145 points are a new franchise record - breaking the previously-held record of 136. The team also set a new franchise record by scoring 80 points in the first half to take a 44-point lead into the break.

While the 905 sank 21 of their 49 3-point attempts (42.9 percent), the BayHawks connected on just 10 of 37 attempts (27.0 percent). 10 of the 905's 21 made 3-pointers came in the first quarter as they led 45-18.

It was a big day for the three players that will also spend time with the Toronto Raptors this season: Guard Malachi Richardson, whose G League assignment was announced this morning, led all scorers with 34 points (on 8-for-15 3-point shooting).

Two-way players Chris Boucher (27 points, nine rebounds, six blocks) and Jordan Loyd (25 points, seven assists) also delivered big scoring performances in the win.

While Richardson's 25 first-half points tied Norman Powell's franchise record for points in a half, his 34 points were two shy of the franchise record for points scored in a regular season game (held by Powell and Lorenzo Brown). Richardson fell two made 3-pointers shy of the single game franchise record of 10 3-pointers set by Brady Heslip as well.

Led by 10 assists from point guard Kay Felder, the Raptors 905 assisted on 32 of their 45 field goals. The 5-foot-9 Felder also finished with 16 points on 6-for-10 shooting from the field, including a big dunk down the lane.

The Raptors 905 take the floor again Thursday when they travel to take on the Maine Red Claws, the G League affiliate of the Boston Celtics.
