When Toronto Raptors forward Serge Ibaka found out Kawhi Leonard would be sitting out Sunday night's game at Staples Center against the Los Angeles Lakers, he was determined to make up for Leonard's absence.

"We really wanted to put some pressure on them and guard the ball", Nurse said.

Ibaka had 34 points and 15 made field goals - both career highs - to go along with 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals and helped lead the Raptors to their 121-107 victory over the Lakers in a game that was far more lopsided than the final score would indicate.

James finished with 18 points and six assists. "We tried to explain that that's part of how this works, but it doesn't seem like we took that to heart".

The Raptors star tweaked his ankle Friday night in a win against the Suns. The Lakers would love to sign a second superstar like Leonard, who grew up in the Inland Empire area one hour east of Los Angeles. But Nick Nurse, Toronto's first-year head coach, has switched Ibaka to playing center full time this season, and the move has paid immediate dividends.

Lakers: Starting with their fourth-quarter slump in Portland on Saturday night, the Lakers were outscored 75-34 in a 21:16 stretch spanning the two games.

The 25-point deficit was a franchise-worst mark for the first quarter of a game played in the shot clock era (1954-55).

Toronto took a 41-10 lead with 2:21 still remaining in the first quarter, and Ibaka outscored the Lakers by himself (20-17) in the opening period.
