Article Summary:

The Raptors could’ve called his number even more – when Barnes was leading Nick Nurse’s bench unit in the first half, he barely touched the ball, as Malachi Flynn and Yuta Watanabe ran most of the action. Durant controlled the game, posting a 34-point triple-double with 13 rebounds and 11 assists, keeping the tempo down after the Raptors made their third quarter run and scoring or creating what needed to be done in overtime.

The Raptors still had a chance to win it at the death, as a Barnes half court shot rimmed out as time expired, but that control that Durant was able to put on the game – along with some energetic support on the glass from the likes of Duke, Claxton and Kessler Edwards – was enough to win it in the end.

The Raptors next game will be against the Warriors on Saturday night.
