LeBron James Not Fazed By Franchise-Worst First Quarter Vs. Raptors

Tory Lanez

The Toronto Raptors outscored Los Angeles 42-17 in the opening frame, with Serge Ibaka (20 points on 8-for-8 shooting) personally outscoring the Lakers, as they shot just 7-for-21 as a team.

The Raptors have been very cautious with Leonard in the early going, and Nurse already had told ESPN after Friday's game in Phoenix that Leonard would be sitting out one half of the team's back-to-backs indefinitely, having already sat out one half in each of Toronto's first two this season.

"I thought we came out of the gate with a lot of good energy", Jazz head coach Quin Snyder said.

Once their starters had seized command, the Raptors worked some of their reserve players into the contest. It will be the first half of a back-to-back with the Utah Jazz on deck for Monday.

"You still learn from it", James said.

"I don't really like to talk about it being disappointing". "We're going to watch film and that nature but you don't put too much into it". He also added 10 rebounds. "The only thing that matters to me is what goes on inside this locker room, both home and away".

The Utah Jazz didn't have their best player, Donovan Mitchell, Monday night due to an ankle injury, which must be the reason they lost to the Toronto Raptors by 13 points after trailing by as many as 26.

James finished with just 18 points.

The Lakers followed up perhaps their best win of the season on Saturday with one of the worst first quarters in franchise history on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with a triple double as the Milwaukee Bucks continued their best National Basketball Association start to a season by dominating the Sacramento Kings 144-109.

The Lakers have the 23rd ranked defense in the league, allowing 111.6 points per 100 possessions, but when you combine that with their fast pace (106.2 possessions per game, third in the league, via NBA.com) you end up in a situation where the Lakers have given up at least 110 points in every game.
