By Larry Seely     Dec 22, 2013 in Sports
Oklahoma City - Oklahoma City has been on a roll to start the 2013-14 NBA season, but Toronto ended the Thunders 13 game home winning streak with a come from behind 104-98 victory on Sunday.
Kyle Lowry led the way, scoring a team high 22 points and dishing out nine assists as four of the five Raptors starters scored 13 points or more and that balanced attack helped pull off the upset.
Both teams shot below forty percent for the game, but the front court for Toronto outscored the Thunder by ten points in the paint. OKC center Kendrick Perkins failed to score and his three rebounds didn't help much.
Russell Westbrook was the games leading scorer with 27 points and Kevin Durant added 24, but the bench for the Thunder made just 10-31 shots, allowing Toronto to overcome a nine point deficit entering the final period of play.
The win moves Toronto's overall record to 11-14 for the year and surprisingly the team has a 7-6 record on the road. Oklahoma City is now 22-5 and the loss drops them into second place in the race for the top spot in the Western Conference, trailing Portland by just .5 games.
