In the NBA, it was a night to remember for guard Fred VanVleet of the Raptors, as host Toronto clobbered the Cleveland Cavaliers 133-99.

Appearing off Toronto's bench as the "sixth man," the former Wichita State point guard scored a career-high 22 points, hitting 8-of-11 from the field, including 6-of-8 from 3-point range. VanVleet even outrebounded Cleveland's LeBron James 4-3.

Toronto has dominated in Canada, winning 13 of its last 14 home games.

Nearing the halfway mark of the regular season, the Raptors are tied for the third-best record in the NBA.

Toronto got swept out of the playoffs last year by the Cavaliers.
