Siakam exploded for 34 points (11-26 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 10-11 FT), 18 rebounds, five assists, and one block in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 130-122 overtime win against the Pelicans.
Siakam matched his career highs in offensive boards and made free throws and set a new career high in field goals attempted. He also fell just one rebound shy of matching his career high. In case it's not abundantly clear, Siakam is set to enjoy an expanded role here in 2019-20, and he's obviously not shying away from the spotlight. Expect Siakam to stay in attack mode going forward as the team's top option offensively.
Siakam and the Raptors have come to terms on a four-year, maximum contract extension, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The NBA's 2018-19 Most Improved Player, Siakam played a crucial role for the Raptors during last season's title run. He stepped his game up in the postseason, averaging 19.0 points on 47.0 percent shooting, 7.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steals across 37.1 minutes. With Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green departing over the summer, the 25-year-old Siakam is the next man up to take control of the franchise moving forward. He was excellent this preseason, averaging 54.9 fantasy points per 36 minutes. In almost every fantasy format, he should be off the board by the end of the third round.
Siakam -- along with Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby and Marc Gasol -- will start Friday's preseason finale against the Nets.
Coach Nick Nurse is rolling with his expected regular-season starting five Friday. In two preseason contests, Siakam has averaged an impressive 20.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals in just 24.4 minutes.
Siakam will be rested for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Steven Loung of Sportsnet reports.
The Raptors will rest Siakam, Marc Gasol, Fred VanVleet, Serge Ibaka and Norman Powell, so expect a number of backups to be in position for increased roles.
Siakam scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-4 FT) to go with seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in Thursday's preseason game against the Rockets.
It was another productive outing for Siakam, who had 24 points and 11 rebounds in Tuesday's initial matchup with the Rockets in China. The reigning Most Improved Player will be asked to take on even more responsibility this season in the absence of Kawhi Leonard, and his all-around contributions make him a top-30, or even top-20, candidate in many formats.
Siakam had 24 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3PT, 8-8 FT) and 11 rebounds in Tuesday's preseason win over Houston.
Both teams played their top units for a decent chunk of the game, and Siakam was able to put together a complete line -- he also added four assists, one steal and one block -- in 27 minutes of action. He could be rested on and off as the preseason progresses, but after the departure of Kawhi Leonard, Siakam will be leaned upon heavily when the regular season arrives.
Siakam totaled 26 points (10-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and a block across 46 minutes in the Raptors' win over the Warriors on Thursday.
Siakam ended with a big double-double in the series-clinching victory, totaling an efficient 26 points and pulling down 10 boards. After averaging just 15.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in Games 4 and 5, Siakam stepped up to help his team win its first ever NBA championship.
Siakam delivered 12 points (6-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 34 minutes during the Raptors' 106-105 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday.
Siakam wasn't able to offer much besides scoring, but he did generate his seventh straight double-digit point total of the postseason. The big man's rebounds were at their low point of the current series, however, as Siakam had posted no fewer than six boards in any contest against the Warriors prior to Monday. The 25-year-old will look to up his stat line across the board as the Raptors once again try for a series-clinching win in Game 6 on Thursday.
Siakam ended with 19 points (6-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one block in 41 minutes during Friday's 105-92 victory over the Warriors.
Siakam put up a modest line in Friday's Game 4 victory, coming away with 19 points to go with just five rebounds and one blocked shot. The victory means the Raptors will now return home for Game 5, just one win away from an NBA Championship. Siakam has certainly been more than impactful across the series despite some inconsistencies and has more than held his own against the likes of Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins. The Raptors are far from a sure thing after losing their most recent home game and Siakam will need to be at his best if they are to indeed take care of the Warriors on Monday.
Siakam furnished 18 points (8-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and six assists across 39 minutes during the Raptors' 123-109 win over the Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday.
Siakam turned in a solid all-around performance and bounced back impressively from a 5-for-18 shooting effort in Game 2 on Sunday. The emerging forward has been a force on the glass throughout the first three games of the Finals, hauling in either eight or nine rebounds in each contest. While he's been prone to the occasional clunker on the scoreboard this postseason, Siakam remains an integral component of the Raptors' attack heading into a critical Game 4 showdown on Friday night.
Siakam totaled 12 points (5-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds and five assists over 41 minutes in the Raptors' loss to the Warriors on Sunday.
Siakam followed up his enormous Game 1 stat line with a bit of a letdown performance in Game 2, having trouble hitting a shot and racking up four fouls. His 18 shot attempts showed that he was still involved on offense, but his lack of blocks or steals was concerning, considering his defensive abilities. Despite the bad night shooting, Siakam has a great chance to bounce back in Game 3 on Wednesday at Oracle Arena.
Siakam ended with 32 points (14-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks, and one steal in 40 minutes during Thursday's 118-109 victory over the Warriors.
Siakam was the best player on the floor Thursday, leading the Raptors to their first ever NBA Finals victory. On a night Kawhi Leonard struggled with an ongoing leg injury, it was Siakam who stepped up on both ends of the floor, including a playoff career-high 32 points on 14-of-17 shooting. The Warriors are going to have to make some adjustments prior to Game 2 with Draymond Green the player likely to find himself guarding Siakam. Numbers such as this are going to be tough to replicate moving forward but with Kevin Durant (calf) likely out once again, Siakam certainly poses a threat in terms of matchups.
Siakam totaled 14 points (5-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and one steal in 36 minutes during Thursday's 105-99 victory over the Bucks.
Siakam struggled from the field during Thursday's impressive road victory but was able to contribute across the board in a well-rounded performance. Siakam has been relatively inconsistent across most of the playoffs but tends to find ways to have value even when he is below par on the offensive end. The Raptors will now head for Game 6 where a victory would send them to their first ever NBA Finals.
Siakam totaled 25 points (9-18 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-9 FT), 11 rebounds, three steals, one assist, and one block in 51 minutes during Sunday's 118-112 victory over the Bucks.
Siakam atoned for his recent slump, pouring in 25 points to go with 11 rebounds in a whopping 51 minutes of playing time. The Raptors made hard work of it but they eventually accounted for the Bucks in double-overtime, pulling to within one game of leveling the Eastern Conference Finals. It was Siakam's best game in quite some time and was certainly a welcome sight for Raptors fans who had to be frustrated with his efforts of late. Game 4 will be in Toronto on Tuesday and Siakam is going to need to put in a repeat performance if they are to head back to Milwaukee tied at 2-2.
Siakam totaled 15 points (6-20 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one steal and a block over 42 minutes in the Raptors' loss to the Bucks on Wednesday.
Siakam put up a disappointing stat line in the Raptors' Game 1 loss, shooting just 30 percent from the field and failing to make a noticeable impact on either end of the floor. As a key contributor to the Raptors' playoff success thus far, he'll need to bounce back in Game 2 on Friday to help the Raptors even the series before heading back to Toronto.
Siakam had 11 points (4-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 38 minutes during Sunday's 92-90 victory over the 76ers.
Siakam, along with a basically the rest of the Raptors, struggled from the field Monday, ending with just 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting. That being said, he salvaged the line by hauling in 11 rebounds to go with a pair of steals. The Raptors were able to account for a tenacious 76ers team on the back of a ridiculous buzzer-beater from Kawhi Leonard. The victory puts them into the Eastern Conference Finals, yet another opportunity for Siakam to build on what has been an amazing season.
Siakam amassed 21 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 33 minutes during Thursday's 112-101 Game 6 loss to the 76ers.
Siakam contributed in every category except blocks while turning in a quality stat line. Apart from Game 4, in which he scored just nine points on 10 field goal attempts across 29 minutes while dealing with a calf injury, Siakam has scored at least 20 points in every other contest here in the second round. With Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol providing inconsistent offensive production of late, Siakam will likely need to put forth another strong showing for the Raptors to reach the Eastern Conference Finals.
Siakam recorded 25 points (7-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 9-10 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 125-89 Game 5 win over the 76ers.
Siakam was not listed on the injury report after being deemed doubtful heading into Sunday's Game 4, and he showed why he was cleared for this one, providing a strong showing to help the Raptors recapture the series lead. Beyond the calf injury Siakam had been up and down in the second round, especially since 76ers' center Joel Embiid was switched onto him in Game 2. Siakam will look to outdo his fellow countryman once again and help his team advance to the next round during Thursday's Game 6.
Siakam is not listed on the Raptors' injury report ahead of Tuesday's Game 5, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Siakam somewhat surprisingly took the floor for Game 4, despite being listed as doubtful on the injury report as recently as Sunday morning. While he struggled and clearly wasn't at 100 percent, Siakam appears intent on continuing to play through the left leg issue, and he'll likely be at his usual spot in the starting lineup Tuesday night as the series shifts back to Toronto.
Siakam (calf) opened Sunday's Game 4 matchup with the 76ers as the Raptors' starting power forward.
After Siakam received the green light to play through his bruised right calf following pregame warmups, it wasn't immediately clear if he would fill his usual starting role or come off the bench. Once the game tipped off, it was revealed that Siakam would work with the top unit, though it remains uncertain if any restrictions with his playing time will be in place. The Raptors may just see how his calf responds early on during the contest rather than implementing a hard minutes limit.
