[TORONTO] — The Toronto Raptors played host to the New York Knicks last night and the homeside took care of business. A 116-101 win has the Raps and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Toronto's record up to 27-13 on the season, while the loss drags New York's down to 18-23. Though a win's a win and Raptors fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Kyle Lowry's 16 points, 4 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 blocks and 1 steals in 28 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Lowry included - and the most important part is that the Raptors walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Lowry in the winning effort was Jonas Valanciunas. Had it not been for Valanciunas rounding out the Raps's attack with 12 points, 16 rebounds and 1 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Toronto's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Knicks, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Raps will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Raps will be a date with the Brooklyn Nets while the visiting Knicks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Atlanta Hawks.
