Delivers career-high 19 assists
Lowry missed more shot attempts at Boston than in any other game this season but still ensured it as of his best by recording 19 assists. It was a surprising performance from the 14-year veteran receiving an uptick in usage with starters Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam (all COVID-19 protocols) out. Lowry may be averaging 7.0 assists this season but his rather absurd assist tally Thursday will remain a one-off.

Tallies 25 points against Celtics
The 27-year-old entered Thursday's contest with 19 points across two previous games against the Celtics. And though the Raptors were without multiple starters due to COVID-19 protocols, they kept it close thanks to productive aid from Powell. He is now averaging 30.3 points across their past three games.

Registers career-high 30 points
The absence of several key Raptors players allowed Boucher to shine. He logged career highs in points, field-goals made and three-pointers made off 35 minutes from the bench. Boucher will not post elite scoring lines consistently but offers significant fantasy value that makes him a must-have on rosters.
