Jonas Valanciunas picked up another double-double on Friday, piling up 21 points, 12 rebounds and a block in just 23 minutes against the Mavs.
Valanciunas was excellent but spent some time off the floor late as the Raptors went with an Ibaka-Siakam frontcourt for defensive purposes against a spaced-out Mavs attack. JV was able to pad things late with three free throws, missing the final attempt of his first trip before corralling the offensive rebound and sinking his next two to ice the game. He’s been able to get on a roll against some teams with weak frontcourts, so we’ll see if he can keep it up against Steven Adams on Sunday.
