The Toronto Raptors scored a franchise-record of 24 3 pointers on Wednesday night against the Nuggets.

Along with the franchise-record, the Raptors broke a 9 game losing streak in their 135-111 victory against the Nuggets. The Toronto Raptors have finally won a game for the first time in March.

The Raptors have had it rough lately with NBA protocols, and this win was much needed to get the team back on track.

Last but not least, Kyle Lowry. He had a stat-line of 8 points, 5 rebounds, and 9 assists. One might think that Lowry had a bad game, but Lowry was spectacular.
