Horrible shooting all around from the Lakers but even worse from our starting back court, you are not going to beat anyone when your back court doesn't

First game in the NBA bubble. Playoff berth clinched long ago. Neither fact mattered to Kyle Lowry and the Raptors on Saturday.

Ease into the postseason like their coach wants? Nope. They knew who was on the other end of the floor. They knew they couldn't go half-speed.

And so the defending league champs exerted themselves against the top team in the West, the Lakers. Toronto left with a 107-92 win after outscoring LA 24-9 in the final six minutes.

''(Raptors coach) Nick (Nurse) says he's going to kind of ease us back in and use it as an exhibition,'' Lowry told reporters, per The Associated Press, after Toronto's 11th win in a row over the Lakers. "We've got too many competitive guys that want to go out there and play and hoop and win games, especially against the guys like the Lakers and with the team that's No. 1 in the West. The competitive juices get going.''

Lowry competed to the tune of 33 points, 14 boards and six assists in 35 minutes. His six points in a 30-second span (a 3 and three free throws on a three-shot foul) helped to close out the win.

The Raptors got additional help from Los Angeles, which shot 35.4 percent from the field and 10 for 40 from 3 in its second game in three nights. LeBron James still made sure to say good things about them.

  Lowry has 33 points, 14 boards and Raptors open restart with win over Lakers LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Nearly five months after he'd played a meaningful game, and on a night that was bigger than basketball, Kyle Lowry had no plans to pace himself. The Raptors' veteran guard had 33 points and a career-high 14 rebounds to lead Toronto to a 107-92 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday in their opening game of the NBA's much-anticipated restart.

"That's a great team," he told reporters, per the Los Angeles Times (subscription required). "No ifs, ands or buts. Exceptionally well coached and championship DNA, you can never take that away from a ballclub if you win a championship. And even before that, they just got playoff-tested guys."

Guys like Lowry, Serge Ibaka, Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet and Marc Gasol, the remaining core of last year's Finals-winning squad. Kawhi Leonard is now with the Clippers and Danny Green is now a Laker, but that doesn't seem to matter to James.

"The media may not talk about them much or give them much credit because Kawhi is gone, but players in the league definitely know what type of team they are," he said.

The Raptors (47-18) have clinched at least a top-four seed, but surely they'd like to enter the playoffs as No. 2 in the East and delay a potential matchup with the top-seeded Bucks until the conference finals. If they can achieve that goal in their three games this week, then maybe Lowry and his teammates can gear down — even for their meeting with those Bucks in eight days.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The worst loss of the Toronto Raptors' season had coach Nick Nurse feeling thankful he has four more games before the NBA playoffs begin. The Raptors' seven-game winning streak — and their hot start in the NBA Walt Disney World bubble — came to an abrupt halt on Friday in a 122-100 loss to the Boston Celtics, and Nurse is concerned that some of his key players haven't yet bounced back from the nearly five months off due to COVID-19.
