8:58 p.m. - The Raptors made nine 3-pointers in the first quarter. They've made ... two since. And yet, they still lead by eight points, partly because of Norman Powell, who has four of the team's eight points in the third quarter.

7:58 p.m. - Maybe it is sustainable. The Raptors are now 9-for-10 from 3-point range. One more and they'll tie the franchise record for 3s made in a quarter, per Doug Smith of The Star .
7:54 p.m. - A good sign for the Raptors early on? They're 7-for-8 from 3-point range. That's obviously unsustainable, but it's encouraging to see some shots falls considering they made only 27.2 percent of their 3-point attempts over the last five games.
