Siakam red-hot as Raptors top Wizards

TORONTO—Pascal Siakam got chants of “MVP, MVP.”

Jeremy Lin, just hours after landing in Toronto, got a standing ovation as he made his Raptors' debut.

It made for a feel-good night as Toronto, fuelled by Siakam's career-high 44 points in the absence of Kawhi Leonard (knee), held on to beat the Washington Wizards 129-120 in a back-and-forth game last night.
