Although Pascal Siakam had a fantastic triple-double performance for the Toronto Raptors on Friday night, the team’s loss to the Brooklyn Nets forced him to concentrate on what he was unable to do.
When informed of his game-day stats, the Cameroonian native had a very startling response. Siakam finished with 37 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists, but his first thought was, “How many free throws did I miss?” as Josh Lewenberg of TSN reported.
Siakam, who was the Raptors’ primary load bearer, was justifiably unhappy of his performance. His free-throw shooting percentage was 5-of-9, thus it is clear that the four crucial points he missed might have made a significant impact.
But hey, Raptors supporters totally comprehend and would be more than happy to give him some leeway in this situation. He can’t do it alone, and he shouldn’t be held responsible for the loss.
Additionally, it is more likely that the supporters of Toronto will respect his mindset. Although they can’t win every game, what important is that they take something positive away from the loss. Pascal Siakam is undoubtedly making notes on what he needs to do before their upcoming game against Brooklyn.
After winning their season opening against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Raptors are currently 1-0 on the year. The team’s path to the playoffs may be more difficult, but Siakam’s performance and leadership will undoubtedly increase their optimism for another postseason appearance.
