It seems like LeBronto’s narrative is coming to an end after the King lost his duel against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night, 107-92 at the Orlando bubble. James finished the game with 20 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds. Yet, those weren’t enough to beat the defending champions, who looked very strong ahead of the postseason.
That defeat meant the fourth time in two years that the Raptors beat the Los Angeles Lakers, ending the domination of LeBron over the Canadians. During his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron absolutely owned the Raptors; whenever they saw each other, James went off on them, eliminating them of the playoff. Well, now things have changed and the current NBA champions look more dangerous than ever after a big W over the Purple and Gold.
This defeat also meant the Lakers have lost the regular-season series against the Canadians for the second straight years, going 4-0 against LeBron in the process. If that wasn’t bad enough, the Lakers just lost their 11th straight game against the Californians. The dominance over the Lakers is big for the Raptors, led by Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam to get close or repeat what they did last season.
Don’t sleep on these Raptors. They already turned the tables against LeBron James, their biggest nemesis, now the sky’s the limit for them.
