Halftime: Raptors 70, Clippers 57
11:38 p.m. - The halftime stats tell some of the story:
11:33 p.m. - Danny Green's transition layup gives the Raptors 70 points in the first 24 minutes of action and gives them a 13-point lead.
Green has scored seven points on a night that Toronto has benefitted from a balanced attack. Serge Ibaka's game-high 14 points makes him one of four Raptors scoring in double figures. Pascal Siakam (13 points) isn't far behind points while Jonas Valanciunas (12 points) and OG Anunoby (10 points) have helped pace the offence as well.
Kyle Lowry (seven points, five assists) and Fred VanVleet (five points, 10 assists) distributed the ball exceptionally well in the first half.
The Clippers attack has been balanced as well - Danilo Gallinari and Milos Teodosic lead the Clippers with nine points apiece, Tobias Harris and Tyrone Wallace each scored eight points while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Marcin Gortat and Mike Scott have seven points apiece.
11:22 p.m. - A 3-pointer from OG Anunoby makes it an 8-0 run for the Raptors and Doc Rivers signals for a timeout.
Anunoby now has seven points (on 3-for-3 shooting) off the bench in eight minutes of action and Toronto leads 59-47 with 3:40 left in the first half.
11:20 p.m. - Running the floor has its benefits, just ask Pascal Siakam.

Reserve guard Milos Teodosic has come out firing for the Clippers, as he has scored nine points on 3-for-3 shooting from deep this quarter and added a few nice assists.

Canadian rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been impressive early on, as he's scored a team-high seven points for the Clippers while Marcin Gortat has scored two points, grabbed three rebounds and dished out three assists.
