,

Pascal Siakam had 22 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in just 28 minutes, and the Toronto Raptors beat San Antonio 143-100 on Wednesday night, the Spurs’ worst loss in franchise history.

“I think we played really hard,” Toronto forward OG Anunoby said. “No matter what we see, we just try to go out there and play hard.”

San Antonio was without Calden Johnson and Devin Wessel, and had safeties Isaiah Ruby and Blake Wesley. The Spurs also sat rookie forward Jeremy Suchon early in the second quarter due to limited minutes after missing one game with flu-like symptoms.

Gary Trent Jr. scored 24 points for the Raptors, who were without All-Star guard Fred VanVleet but still had enough for the biggest margin of victory, a season-high in points and a season-high 23 turnovers. The overs were forced.

The Raptors are trailing the Spurs with Siakam’s second triple-double of the season.

“They’re really good at it. [defensive pressure]”Spurs forward Keita Bates-Diop said. “They switch from 1 to 5 and get into the passing lane. We have to get better at moving the ball. This is a really good experienced team. It was a good test for us. This is probably the best team we’ve played all season.”

Bates-Diop had 17 points. He was the only Spurs starter in double figures.

The Raptors’ length and athleticism kept the Spurs from tipping off. Toronto opened the game with a pair of breakaways, one-handed dunks by Anunoby and Scotty Barnes with a steal and a defensive rebound.

The Spurs had four turnovers in the first three minutes and the Raptors had five dunks in the first seven minutes.

After trailing by 11 points, the Spurs rallied to cut the Raptors’ lead to 32-31 at the end of the first quarter. San Antonio took its first lead 27 seconds into the second on Jacob Poeltl’s layup.

Toronto would quickly regain control, extending their lead to 48 points in the second half.

Siakam was 10 for 19 from the field sitting out the last quarter.

“Pascal has a great command of what he’s seeing and what he’s doing,” Toronto coach Nick Nurse said. “He’s in the plays and he’s creating a lot of easy opportunities for himself.

The Raptors had 76 points in the paint and 39 fast break points.

Toronto’s previous season high was a 30-point victory over Atlanta on Oct. 31.

Toronto next takes on the Mavericks in Dallas on Friday.
