Yuta Watanabe registered 21 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3PT, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block across 26 minutes during Friday's 113-102 win over the Magic.
Watanabe led the Raptors bench in scoring and poured in a career-high 21 points during Friday’s win. He took advantage of the uptick in minutes while Pascal Siakam (rest), Kyle Lowry (foot), and OG Anunoby (rest) were ruled out. He’s now scored double figures in back-to-back games. Watanabe has earned more playing time and will look to keep up his strong play when the Raptors host the Thunder on Sunday.
