Raptors waste huge comeback against Kings
By MIKE GANTER, QMI Agency
SACRAMENTO - This time, the Toronto Raptors didn’t wait for the fourth quarter to get the comeback started.
This time, the rally got started early and erased a 13-point deficit.
But in a year when the Raptors are showing every which way to lose a game, this turned out to be just another punch in the gut as a huge comeback was wasted yet again, this time in a 107-100 loss to the Sacramento Kings.
In a game the Raptors had to have on a road trip that only gets tougher from here on out, the Raptors dug themselves a 13-point hole early in the third quarter and then climbed all the way out of it on the backs of Kyle Lowry’s aggressiveness and a turn-back-the-clock night for Mickael Pietrus.
