Siakam tallied 36 points (15-28 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 41 minutes Wednesday in the Raptors' 114-106 win over the Trail Blazers.
The Raptors' taxing schedule of late seemed to wear on Siakam, who put up a combined 35 points in Toronto's Sunday/Monday back-to-back set with the Los Angeles teams, but shot just 35.7 percent from the field while handling 40-plus minutes in both contests. Siakam's workload was heavy again Wednesday, but the day off beforehand seemed to be beneficial, as he responded nicely with an efficient outing from the field. With Kahwi Leonard now with the Clippers and Kyle Lowry (thumb) sidelined, Siakam has predictably seen his field-goal percentage fall this season while commanding more attention from the opposition, but his 49.1 percent mark is still quite useful.
Siakam had 16 points (6-17 FG, 1-6 3PT, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds, six assist and one block in 44 minutes during Monday's 98-88 loss against the Clippers.
Siakam has averaged 26.8 points and 11.0 rebounds per game over that four-game stretch, and while his 16-point effort tied a season-low for him in that department, he continues to be one of Toronto's biggest weapons on offense. He will aim to extend his double-double streak Wednesday at Portland.
Siakam collected 24 points (9-25 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 5-8 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 42 minutes Sunday in the Raptors' 113-104 win over the Lakers.
The poor efficiency from the field, three-point range and the free-throw line limited the overall impact of Siakam's night in season-long category leagues, but he once again paid dividends to those who rostered him in DFS. Siakam has now notched double-doubles in three consecutive games and should benefit from heightened usage on offense moving forward with Kyle Lowry (hand) and Serge Ibaka (ankle) facing uncertain return timelines.
Siakam had 44 points (17-28 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 rebounds and four assists in 39 minutes during Friday's 122-104 victory over New Orleans.
Siakam was simply on another level during Friday's win, torching the Pelicans for a season-high 44 points. He added 10 rebounds in what was a comfortable victory for the Raptors who have started the season with a 6-and-2 record. Siakam has shown no signs of slowing down after his breakout season and has even popped up in some people's MVP discussions. Kyle Lowry (thumb) is likely to miss time with a fractured thumb meaning Siakam could find himself in an even bigger role on the offensive end of the floor.
Siakam finished with 16 points (7-19 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-0 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes of a 115-105 loss to Milwaukee on Saturday.
Siakam posted a season-low point total in the game before fouling out in the closing minutes. It was a rough shooting day for Siakam, who had been on a roll averaging 28 points per game entering the contest. He'll have a bit of a break before getting the chance to get back on track on Wednesday against Sacramento.
