A few days after the official action returns in Orlando, the last champions added another victory in a friendly against the Trail Blazers.
This Sunday the action continued in Orlando with the preparation matches four days after the official resumption of the 2019/2020 season of the NBA.
In one of the matches played at one of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex stadiums, the Toronto Raptors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 110-104.
The last champions, who came from defeating the Rockets on Friday in their first game in the “bubble”, had Congolese Serge Ibaka as the top scorer with 19 points. His other great figure was the Cameroonian Pascal Siakam, who closed with 18 units and six rebounds.
On the side of the Blazers, who will try in the eight remaining games of the regular season to close the gap with the Grizzlies and fight for a place for the Playoffs, stood out CJ McCollum, author of 21 points. The great figure of the team, Damian Lillard, did not play due to a problem in his foot.
The Raptors will play their third and final warm-up game Tuesday against the Suns, while Portland will do the same on the same day against the Thunder. Then it’s time for the official action: Canadians play the Lakers on Saturday, while the Trail Blazers will face the Grizzlies in a key game on Friday.
