Fred VanVleet had high praise for O.G. Anunoby: “it just looks great. It looks like he’s the defensive player of the year so far and we’re going to need him to be that for us this year.” – 10:37 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Precious Achiuwa is getting an MRI done on his right ankle. His foot was in a wrap post-game (no walking boot, for what it’s worth). – 10:34 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
After the game, #Rockets Jalen Green said he knew going into the game he needed to be patient with the way they run people off the 3pt line. (8-14 FG, 21pts). Said a couple of their turnovers late in the game really hurt their chances, they’ve got to take better care of the ball. – 10:24 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
VanVleet on Anunoby: “He’s finally taking it personal (on defence). If he ever gets any meaner, he’s gonna be really scary… He can probably steal the ball whenever he feels like it… He looks like a Defensive Player of the Year so far. – 10:21 PM

“He’s finally taking it personal, he’s such a nice guy, if he got any meaner it would be really scary” — VanVleet on OG Anunoby’s defensive carnage lately. “He’s playing like a defensive player-of-the-year” pic.twitter.com/5nkssYEM6a10:17 PM

Despite the loss in Toronto against the Raptors, Alperen Sengun had another one productive game with the #Rockets
17 points / 8 rebounds / 3 blocks / 1 assist / 1 steal / 5-8 FG in 30 minutes.
Sengun developes his game into his 2nd NBA season. – 10:16 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Nurse said he considered starting Thad Young in Koloko’s place to open the second half. He went on to endorse Koloko as the regular starter with Siakam out, said they have to get him “rejuvenated and going again” after a couple tough games. – 10:12 PM

Nurse said he considered starting Thad in the second half, but Koloko will remain in starting five. – 10:08 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Thad Young with one of the better scoreless nights you’ll see. 27 minutes, 0 points, 0-3… but had 8 rebounds and was a team-best +21. Was on the floor with the starters during the late 2nd-quarter run and to close the game.
Nurse: “Thad was huge.” – 10:05 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
That was harder than it needed to be, but the Raptors will take all the Siakam-less wins they can get. Good mins from Porter/Young to help seal things… but for most of the night, this was the the VanVleet/Anunoby show. 59 combined pts on 22-46 FG, 11-25 FG. They were brilliant. – 9:55 PM

#Rockets def have had opportunities in this game. Gotta find a way to finish by the hoop. – 9:48 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets have given away quite a few late-game possessions. Can’t afford to do that here. Raptors in six games this season with a five-point margin in the final five minutes, have made 61.3 percent of their shots, and 55.6 percent of their 3s. – 9:46 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Don’t see the Rockets go with Smith, Sengun and Eason together very often. Eason brining his usual disruptive energy. He has four steals. But lowering his head and going to rim with every touch not working too well. He is 5 of 15. – 9:45 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
24 very solid Otto Porter Jr minutes tonight; 14-6 isn’t shabby at all – 9:45 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
I do not foresee the Rockets leading the league in defensive rating. – 9:45 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Precious Achiuwa has a sprained ankle and will not return tonight, per Raptors – 9:42 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
The Raptors desperately needed somebody, anybody, to step up and help VanVleet/Anunoby take control of this game. Enter Otto Porter Jr., who just had his first signature moment in Toronto, hitting 3 triples in 80 seconds or so. Suddenly, he’s got 14 points and the Raps are up 7. – 9:41 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Raptors PR reports right ankle sprain for Achiuwa, his night’s done – 9:40 PM

Myles Turner missed a game-tying 3 contested by Jokic.. Pacers were 2 for 12 from 3 in the 4th.
Nuggets climbed back from 18 down to prevail, 122-119. Jokic scored 11 in the 4Q after being in foul trouble.
Mathurin had 30, Haliburton with 21-11a.
Up next: Sat. v TOR. – 9:28 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Raptors 86, Rockets 82 after 3. Green with 15-6-6. First career triple double watch? Porter with six of his 10 assists in the quarter. Had season high 11 on Monday. Sengun 17-8. Anunoby with 24, VanVleet 20. – 9:23 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Raptors by 4 after 3 because the Trent And The Backups finished the quarter okay, just as everyone knew they would – 9:23 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
86-82 Raps after 3. OG and VanVleet have been great, getting little else in the way of help, while the Rockets have shot 14 more free throws than Raps. – 9:23 PM
Houston Rockets @HoustonRockets
Going into the final quarter
Rockets: 82
Raptors: 86

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets with a good response to that Raptors run to a 12-point lead. Rockets tie it, on a 16-4 run in 4:41. They are better when they don’t pass to the other team. – 9:16 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Another ridiculous defensive performance from O.G. Anunoby.
He’s now recorded 3+ steals in 6 straight games – the longest streak of his career. The only players with longer streaks of 3+ steals over the last 10 seasons: Victor Oladipo (8), Chris Paul (8) and Rajon Rondo (7). – 9:15 PM
Eric Smith @Eric__Smith
The Rockets having 24 FTA to Toronto’s 8 is beyond ridiculous
And it’s not like the Raptors aren’t playing aggressively — just under half of their 80 points (36) have been in the paint – 9:14 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Raptors by 5 with 2:54 left in the third
Given it’s been a two man show this quarter — VanVleet and Anunoby — that seems a dicey strategy – 9:13 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Since Marcus Smart won defensive player of the year, indicating perimeter players are considered again (as they should be,) Anunoby is that kind of defensive player. Outstanding tonight. – 9:10 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
FVV, OG, Porter and Young together is Nurse basically saying, “Screw it, I’m playing grown-ups.” – 9:09 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
I know he’s had his struggles, but Jabari Smith looking pretty darn good tonight. – 9:07 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets turnovers and Raptors lead piling up. Raptors on 19-7 run. Rockets with four turnovers on the past seven possessions. Raptors outscoring the Rockets, 17-5, off turnovers. – 9:06 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
One of the issues with Houston’s halfcourt execution is after the initial action, there seems to be miscommunication on what the next read should be. Leads to a lot of clock running, stagnation and confusion. – 9:05 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Raptors seem to be pulling away here in the third. 19-7 run for Toronto. – 9:04 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Man, O.G.’s lsat 4 minutes or so have been stupendous
Raptors up 12 – 9:04 PM
Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun
Anunoby decided he’d gone long enough without a steal. Feels like Barnes is about to take over this game. – 9:01 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
VanVleet and O.G. are basically just “No, not tonight” with this game. – 9:01 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Moments after Koloko picks up his 4th foul, he bites on Sengun’s pump fake under the rim & gets called for his 5th in 14 mins. So, early 3rd-quarter minutes for Thad Young, who did a nice job closing the 1st half with the starters. Expect him to get a lot of run in this 2nd half – 8:59 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
That’s 5 on Koloko, who has been outclassed tonight by the combo of the Rockets’ athleticism and Sengun’s bag of tricks. Thad checks in. – 8:58 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Another game, another opposing center against the Rockets in foul trouble. Christian Koloko clobbers Alperen Sengun, his fifth foul. Young back in. – 8:58 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Raptors had 13 offensive rebounds in the first half, not including all the team rebounds when the ball went out of bounds. Rockets lead the NBA in offensive rebounds per game with 13.9. The energy on the defensive end has been poor, most conspicuously on the glass. – 8:53 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
The Raptors lead by 3 at the half, which probably says more about the state of the Rockets than anything else (though the defensive effort was better in Q2).
Anunoby, VanVleet and Barnes combined for 41 of Toronto’s 57 points on 15-32 FG. Everybody else: 7-25 FG. – 8:39 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Playing defense works! The Raptors tried it out in the second quarter after spotting Houston 39 points in the first Q. Toronto takes a 57-54 lead into the half, led by O.G. Anunoby’s 20-points. – 8:39 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Raptors 57, Rockets 54 at half. Raptors coming all way back from down 12 to lead, mostly with the Rockets defense slow footed and horrible on the glass. Did not help that the Rockets went 4 of 21 in the second quarter. – 8:37 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
VanVleet with a positively Lowryesque “This isn’t good enough” end to that half. Raps lead 57-54. – 8:37 PM
Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Game got a wee bit drunk there for a minute
Raptors up 3 at half, O.G. has 20, VanVleet 12 – 8:37 PM
Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane
O.G. Anunoby, a great Hoosier, is a game wrecker – 8:36 PM
Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun
I want to see Fred VanVleet on Cobra Kai. His hands are like lightning. – 8:36 PM

Raptors, down 3, just had 4 very good looks over 2 possessions and got nothing – 8:35 PM

Marc Davis hit Jabari Smith Jr with a technical foul. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe that’s his first – 8:25 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Jabari Smith Jr. finishes a break and taunts Koloko. Technical foul. Not ideal. – 8:24 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Despite one of the worst defensive quarters they’ve played in a long while, the Raptors are within 2. Why? How? Two letters: O.G.
Anunoby is 5-for-7, including a perfect 4-for-4 from long range, and has 16 of Toronto’s 41 points. – 8:21 PM
Payal Doshi @PayalDoshiTV
Cue the offense the Raptors are back within ✌. – 8:21 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
I’m not clear if the Raps have improved defensively this quarter, or the Rockets started missing 3s. They did stop allowing a bunch of layups and dunks though, so that’s good. – 8:20 PM
Ryan Wolstat @WolstatSun
Playing like All.Star. Anunoby – 8:19 PM
Eric Koreen @ekoreen
OK, O.G. might be able to be a first option against the Rockets. – 8:18 PM

Rockets have gone cold since the bench came in. A few nice plays on both ends from Nix and usual boards from Garuba, but Eason, Mathews and Gordon miss good looks. Smith will return. – 8:13 PM

Payal Doshi @PayalDoshiTV
Well, it’s fitting to say the Raptors came out flat to start the game. – 8:08 PM
Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Not a whole lot of defence being played right now – by the recently called out Precious Achiuwa, or anybody else for that matter. The 2-9 Houston Rockets shot 14-for-20 in the first quarter. 70%. SEVENTY. Raptors trail 37-29, and they’re lucky it’s not worse. – 8:06 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Rockets lead Raptors 37-29 after 1Q. Houston goes on a 15-9 run vs. Raptors bench. – 8:06 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets 37, Raptors 29 after 1. Rockets hit road determined to avoid slow starts that had been such an issue. In the first three games of trip, they scored 34, 33, and 37 Q1 points. Not a whole lot of defense or defence early, though Martin with two more outstanding blocks. – 8:06 PM

Alykhan Bijani @Rockets_Insider
KJ Martin has been great as a help-side defender this season, especially when he is on the nail. He is good at impeding the roll man off of pick-and-roll, and still recovering to the weak-side shooter. Helps Sengun greatly in drop coverage when they play together. – 8:01 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Lots of Barnes vs. Green possessions early (on switches on the Raptors’ end.) Barnes even directed teammates to get out of the way on one possession. Barnes muscled him on a drive, Green beat Barnes on another. Still, something to watch. – 7:58 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Eason and Martin first off the bench to join KPJ, Green and Sengun. Good things tend to happen with this group. – 7:57 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Raptors go 2-3. Sengun should be an X-factor here being able to facilitate in the gaps of that zone. In theory. – 7:54 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Raptors come out of the time out in a zone with traps. Rockets promptly turn it over. – 7:53 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets get to the first time out up 19-16 (with Anunoby going to the line) and making 6 of 7 shots. Start very similar to in Minnesota to start the trip. The subject of defense will come up during the time out. – 7:50 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Maybe Scottie learned that lefty take at his buddy Jalen Green’s basketball camp this summer! (Barnes was a guest counelor). – 7:50 PM

Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Rockets really trying to move the ball tonight. Good way to keep everyone engaged — and possibly get Jabari Smith Jr. going. Recently came back from an illness, trying to find a rhythm. – 7:46 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Rockets open with more of the ball movement they showed in Orlando. The test will be when the Raptors change up defenses and apply pressure, as Orlando did late and the Raptors are known to do. – 7:44 PM
Kelly Iko @KellyIko
Like possessions like Houston’s opening one — it wasn’t perfect but all ball handlers touched the ball and tried to make reads. – 7:43 PM

Not a ton of Raptors news pre-game but the tete a tete between Nick Nurse and Precious Achiuwa included no sugar coating,
“He just needs to play better, man. I’m always talking about playing hard on D and not executing. And he’s just having too much inconsistency,” Nurse said – 6:27 PM
Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
None of Ousmane Dieng, Jaylin Williams, Eugene Omoruyi and Lindy Waters III will be active tonight after playing with the Blue this afternoon.
Daigneault said all but Omoruyi will play with the Blue again tomorrow. Sounds like Omoruyi will be available Friday vs. Toronto. – 6:26 PM
Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Nurse said he had a 1-on-1 meeting Wednesday w/ Precious Achiuwa, and showed him some sub-par defensive clips, says he needs to be more consistent on that end to get up to the 25-30 min range he projected for him before the season (he’s at 21 now). “He just has to play better.” – 5:59 PM
