Raptors Mute Jazz for Sixth Straight Road Win
The Raptors will have a Merry Christmas after opening one of the toughest stretches of the season with an impressive 104-98 road win over an excellent Utah Jazz team.
Kyle Lowry had one of the best games of his stellar career, returning from a cut to his lip requiring two stitches that causes him to miss most of the third quarter, before returning to drop 19 of his 36 points in the fourth (missing only 1-of-10 attempts), willing the Raptors to another road win.
Toronto shot 53% from the field against the NBA leaders in lowest field goal percentage and points per game allowed. DeMAr DeRozan added 24.
Saskatoon-born Trey Lyles sparked the Jazz with all 19 of his points in the second half.
