We broke down some of the more intriguing numbers from LAL’s 112-106 win at Toronto:
Percentage of field goals made in the second half for Toronto after shooting 58.1 percent in the first two quarters. The Lakers also forced the Raptors leading scorer, DeMar DeRozan, into a 3 for 13 performance in the second half after a 7 for 11 first half.
Minutes for Ryan Kelly in his first career start. Kelly scored 17 points, including seven in the fourth quarter off a leaning bank shot, 19-foot jumper and three free throws. In the last three games, Kelly is averaging 15.3 points and 5.3 rebounds on 53.8 percent field goals and 40.0 percent on three-pointers.
Points for Nick Young, 15 of them coming in the fourth quarter to help seal L.A.’s second straight win. Young returned from a one-game suspension and was efficient from the floor, making 7 of 13 field goals (5 of 7 three-pointers) and 10 of 11 free throws.
Three-pointers made for the Lakers out of 22 attempts, a 54.5 percent clip. L.A. trailed by as much as 19 points in the second quarter, but the three-point shot allowed them to slowly cut the deficit. In the last two games, they are shooting 24 of 42 from beyond the arc (57.1 percent).
Straight double-doubles for Kendall Marshall, as he finished with 11 points and 10 dimes. He joins Chris Paul and Ty Lawson as the only players in the NBA this season to record at least five consecutive games of double-digit points and assists.
