ECameroon power forward Pascal Siakam achieved a double-double of 33 points and 11 rebounds as leader of the Toronto Raptors, who surprised the NBA on the day when they beat the Brooklyn Nets 117-123 on the road.

The point guard Kyle Lowry also had 30 points and the guard-forward Normal Powell reached 18 points as the third highest scorer for the Raptors (10-12), who won the third consecutive game.

This time the “Big 3” factor did not emerge within the Nets who had forward Joe Harris as their leader with 19 points.

While star guard James Harden got a double-double of 17 points and 12 rebounds without being able to help the Nets avoid defeat.

Star point guard Kyrie Irving had 15 and couldn’t be a winning factor for the Nets (14-10).

The same thing happened with star forward Kevin Durant, who was forced out of the game in the third quarter due to the NBA’s Covid-19 health and safety protocols.

“It was confusing, frustrating, weird. That he doesn’t start the game, then play, then can’t play … It just doesn’t make any sense. But I don’t make the decisions. I just work here,” Joe Harris said.

Durant’s first game against the Raptors since rupturing the Achilles tendon in his right leg in the 2019 NBA Finals with the Golden State Warriors was frustrating for him.

Durant was unavailable to start the game, entering as a reserve for the first time in his 867-game NBA career, then told he had to leave the game and the field in the third quarter.

The Nets star finished with eight points after scoring 20 or more in each of his first 17 games, his longest streak to start a season in his career.
