Hamilton, Ontario native Shai Gilgeous-Alexander tied his career-high with 32 points in a 98-97 win over the Toronto Raptors scoring the most points ever by a Canadian against Canada’s only NBA team both on the road or at home.

Gilgeous-Alexander surpassed both Rick Fox and Andrew Wiggins’ 31 points and is the youngest to score 30 or more against the Raptors’ at 21 years and 170 days old. Fox accomplished the feat way in Toronto back in 1998 — while Wiggins’ did his damage in Minnesota.
