Oklahoma City Thunder's Steven Adams suffers knee injury against Toronto Raptors

Here are a few takeaways from a wild and entertaining win for the Raptors in OKC.

With these gaudy numbers came impressive individual performances from the Raptors.

Hot shots: The Thunder, ranked 29th in the National Basketball Association in three-point shooting heading into the night, went 16-for-42 from beyond the arc, one of their best performances of the season. Pascal Siakam is their most capable scorer, but Lowry is. Unlike the rust that showed from the second quarter onward Sunday, Siakam looked like he had found his legs and was much more comfortable Wednesday.

OG Anunoby also scored 21 for Toronto, while Kyle Lowry added 17.

Siakam and Powell both returned Sunday for the Raptors' loss against the San Antonio Spurs. Toronto led by 30 before halftime but the Thunder cut the lead to three with 2:39 left thanks to hitting 15 of 20 shots. Gasol was playing for the first time since December 18. Terence Davis, a week off a career night against the Charlotte Hornets, had 12 off the bench.

The Raptors still lead by 18 points, but it will be interesting to see if the Thunder can carry that momentum into the second half to make a game out of this.

The 34-year-old Spain native, a three-time National Basketball Association all-star, is averaging 6.6 points and 6.6 rebounds in 27 games this year.

Toronto has battled injuries that recently left the team without three regular starters.
