Box Score | Photos | Video Highlights & Post-Game Reaction

TORONTO (CP) — Terrence Ross seemed a bit taken aback by all the fuss.

Although he’d just matched a Toronto Raptors record with 51 points, Ross wasn’t sure why someone threw him a game ball. With the media crowding around his locker, he noted that New York’s Carmelo Anthony poured in 62 on Friday night and Oklahoma’s Kevin Durant had 54 earlier this month.
