After not eclipsing 30 minutes in any game this season, he’s done so in each of his last three games. He’s looked like a breakout star in those appearances, averaging 21 PPG and 4. 0 APG while shooting 55% overall. Perhaps his most important contributions have come from beyond the arc as Branham has averaged 2. 7 threes per game at a 44% clip. With how many injuries the Spurs have had, big man Jakob Poeltl continues to be an anchor for San Antonio down low.
Toronto still has a strong statistical profile as their +0. 6 scoring margin puts them in the middle of the pack. They excel at forcing turnovers and running on the fast break. The Raptors average 17. 8 fast break points per game – second in the league. They force turnovers at the second-highest rate in the league as well, while only turning the ball over at a league-best 8. 4%. The Raptors are led by do-it-all forward Pascal Siakam.
Despite interest from a number of teams, Siakam doesn’t appear to be on the move by this trade deadline. That is for good reason, as the 28-year-old is having a career year. Siakam leads the Raptors with 24. 7 PPG and 7. 9 RPG, while also chipping in 6. 2 APG. He is an efficient scorer who holds a 47% field goal percentage and averages 1. 3 made threes per game. The X-factor for Toronto tonight is forward Scottie Barnes.
