Toronto Raptors’ Kyle Lowry scores season-high 39 points in win over Utah Jazz
Sports
Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter scored 19 points apiece for Utah. Gordon Hayward added 16 points and Trey Burke had 15 and eight assists for the Jazz, who trailed through the final three quarters.

Toronto faced little defensive resistance. The Raptors shot 45 of 79 overall, including 12 of 21 on 3-pointers.

The teams traded baskets for most of the first quarter and the Jazz led 20-18 after Kanter converted a three-point play with 3:21 left in the period.

The Raptors began hitting shots all over the floor at that point to take control. Williams made a pair of baskets to start and finish a 9-2 run that gave the Raptors a 31-24 lead going into the second quarter.

Toronto scored on eight of its first nine possessions in the second quarter and by the time Lowry capped that stretch with a 3-pointer, the Raptors led 50-32.
