Led by Jonas Valanciunas and Kawhi Leonard, the Raptors outscored the Nets 33-29 in the second quarter. Valanciunas now has 17 points in the game and Leonard has 11.

As TSN's Josh Lewenberg noted, Valanciunas has been on quite the tear lately:

8:34 p.m. - And like that, Pascal Siakam gives the Raptors a 49-47 lead with a pair of free throws. Toronto is currently on a 9-0 run.

Jonas Valanciunas is Toronto's leading scorer after one quarter with six points. Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll lead the way for the Nets with six points each.

7:58 p.m. - Give Jonas Valanciunas another bucket, this one set up by his signature pump fake.

7:53 p.m. - Jonas Valanciunas has four points on 2-for-2 shooting from the field. The four other Raptors starters? Two points on 1-for-8 shooting.

Fortunately for Toronto, the Nets have also gotten off to a slow start in missing nine of their first 15 shot attempts.

7:49 p.m. - The Raptors might want to guard Allen Crabbe. He's already 2-for-2 from 3-point range, sparking a 13-0 run by the Nets.
