The Toronto Raptors advanced to 35-13 on the season after a dominant win over the Memphis Grizzlies.
Saturday's game was truly a tale of two halves with the Raptors turning it on in the third quarter to decide the outcome.
Here are your takeaways from Toronto's victory over Memphis...
Danny Green's third quarter
The Raptors held a slim 55-48 lead going into the half but Danny Green had plans to end this game as fast as possible.
He caught fire in the third frame, knocking down 3-pointers at a historic rate. He converted SIX consecutive 3s for the Raptors, playing a major role in their run that put this game out of reach for Memphis.

Green finished the quarter with seven 3-pointers, a franchise record for 3s made in a single quarter. Fans at Scotiabank Arena were on their feet chanting his name as he exited the game with 24 points on 8-for-12 (66.7 percent) shooting from long range, tying his career-high for 3s made in a single game set back in 2013.
His 21 points fell one point shy of Kyle Lowry's franchise record set back in 2015 for points in a quarter.
The rest of the team's third quarter
It was an incredible third frame for Green, but the rest of the team was just as successful.
After scoring 55 points in the entire first half, the Raptors scored 45 points in the third quarter with 30 of those 45 coming by way of the three-ball. The Raptors made 10 of their 16 attempts from beyond the arc, good for 62.5 percent.
They had 12 assists on 17 made field goals in the quarter with Fred VanVleet's five assists leading the team.
Their defence was on point as well forcing the Grizzlies to turn the ball over nine times, going for 21 points the other way in their favour.
They used a 34-6 run to blow this game open and held Memphis to 14 points in the frame, turning a seven-point halftime lead into a 38-point lead going into the fourth.
Life without Kawhi
The Raptors are now 10-2 in games that Kawhi Leonard does not play. In those 12 games, they have outscored their opponents by a total of 137 points.
Those are not exactly the stats you would expect to see when missing your star player, but it's encouraging to see other guys stepping up. On nights when Leonard is out, it's been very much so a team effort to earn the 10 wins, but even more impressive is the diversity of who's led the team in scoring in those wins.
Serge Ibaka scored the most points in three of those contests with Lowry next in line with two high-scoring games. It's otherwise been a mix, from Danny Green, Fred VanVleet, Jonas Valanciunas and Norman Powell sharing the leading scorer title in wins with the team's MVP candidate sidelined.
In the long run, the Raptors and their fans will be thankful that Leonard saved his legs all season, and it's even easier to be thankful when the team's record isn't sacrificed in the process.
Home sweet home
With Saturday's win, the Raptors are now tied with the Milwaukee Bucks for the best home record in the NBA at 20-4.
They've won nine consecutive games at Scotiabank Arena and it's no surprise after seeing the boost the crowd gave the team against the Grizzlies.
Their offensive rating raises to 113.4 at home compared to 110.2 on the road, and they hold teams to 106.4 points per 100 possessions at home versus 108.1 points on the road. That gives the Raptors a net rating of +7.0 when playing in Toronto.
It's more than that, too - their percentages from both the field and 3-point land increase on their home court as well.
With all of this in mind, along with the fact that the Bucks are equally as dominant at home, the fight for the top seed in the East intensifies.
The Grizzlies' freefall
The Grizzlies started the season 15-10 through the first 25 games, finding themselves in the mix as a playoff team in the grueling Western Conference.
Since that point of the season, they've gone 4-16 and are now 19-27 in second-to-last place in the conference. They had lost five games in a row, then stumbled upon a two game winning streak before dropping another six in a row.
They beat the San Antonio Spurs a few weeks back, but have now lost five in a row since that victory, making them 1-10 in their last 11 games.
With how tough the West is, things are getting out of hand fast. They're only six games out of the final playoff spot but they would have to cover a lot of ground and fast.
Aside from the negative, their rookie centre Jaren Jackson Jr. has been encouraging and looks like one of the most talented players in a solid rookie class. He's averaging 13.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game shooting an efficient 51.9 percent from the field and 33.9 percent from the perimeter.
