Marc Gasol Just Misses Double-Double On Tuesday

Toronto Raptors center Marc Gasol was a rebound and point away from securing a double-double in Game 5 on Tuesday against the Magic. Gasol scored nine points with nine rebounds and added two assists with a block and again had a large role in holding Nikola Vucevic to just six points. Gasol's numbers were not eye-popping in this series, but his contributions go beyond the scoresheet and this again will be prevalent in his club's next series against Joel Embiid and the 76ers.

Kawhi Leonard Scores 27 Points In Game 5

Toronto Raptors shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard needed just 11 shots to score 27 points in the series-clinching win on Tuesday over the Orlando Magic. Leonard did it all as he added seven boards with two assists and added a steal in 32 minutes of action. Leonard was smoking hot in this game as he made all five of his shots from downtown and all six of his shots from the line. Leonard and the Raps take on the 76ers in the next round, and Leonard will look to continue to dominate Ben Simmons as he did during this regular season in their three meetings that Leonard suited up in.

Pascal Siakam Scores 24 Points To Close Out The Series

Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam once again dominated the Magic in Game 5 in the 19-point series-ending win on Tuesday. Siakam made half of his 16 shots en route to 24 points and added six rebounds with four assists and three triples on the night. Siakam was incredible this series where he averages 22.8 points and 8.2 rebounds on 53.3% shooting from the floor in the five games. Siakam will be worth a look in Game 1 when the Raptors host the 76ers when he is playing this good.
