Terrence Ross puts up 51-point game for RaptorsPosted by Inside Hoops
The Toronto Raptors lost yesterday, but there was still a fun story on their side of things: A ridiculous 51-point game from Terrence Ross. Here’s the Toronto Sun reporting:
Dwane Casey was probably the only person in the building who didn’t enjoy Saturday’s Raptors-Clippers tilt.
Terrence Ross certainly enjoyed it.
In as entertaining a contest as the Air Canada Centre has seen in years, the teams played high-octane, all-out offensive basketball, but the undermanned Raptors came up short 126-118 despite a franchise-record-tying 51 points by Ross.
And, in the end, though frustrated to lose, even the famously defensive-minded Raptors head coach couldn’t help but marvel at what went on.
“For the fans it was a great exhibition of basketball,” Casey said. “The young man, Terrence, picked it up. We lose DeMar (DeRozan) and put on a heck of a display. Not only did he have 51 points, he had nine rebounds which was huge too.”
Ross spearheaded the Toronto attack with his dazzling display, including a club-record seven three-pointers in the first half, in a performance reminiscent of the Vince Carter glory days. Carter scored his 51 back in 2000 against Phoenix, in a game telecast across North America.
