Lucas Nogueira started on Saturday for the Raptors, scoring nine points with eight rebounds, a block and two steals.
The Raptors lost in overtime so the minutes were a bit inflated, but the 42 were a career-high as the Raptors decided to mixup their starting unit by giving Nogueira a look at a starting role along side regular center Jonas Valanciunas. Nogueira was already flirting with top-100 status while getting just 19.7 minutes per game before tonight. Time might be running out to buy low if this starting gig sticks and he gets a bump in minutes.
