Jonas Valanciunas disappointed with nine points and nine boards in 24 minutes of action during Game 1.
Valanciunas added no other stats and shot 2-of-5. This series was set up for him to play big against one of the league’s worst rebounding teams, but the Raptors didn’t really work to get JV involved offensively. That should change in Game 2 as he’s an easy mismatch on a wiry front line, so expect more going forward. He was a monster in last year’s postseason and should bounce back.
