Team On Point was On Location as history was made when the Raptors 905 Franchise won their first NBA D-League Championship after only their 2nd season in the league. They defeated the Rio Grande Valley Vipers (Houston Rockets affiliate) 122-96 and took the series 2 games to 1.

The 905 were led by Raptors players Bruno Caboclo who poured in 31pts and 11rebs for the double-double and Fred VanVleet’s 28pts and 14rebs. Series MVP Pascal Siakam contributed 17pts, 7rebs, 4 assts, 3stls & 2blks on an efficient 7-13 shooting performance.
Canadians Brady Heslip(5pts) and Negus Webster-Chan(3pts).
Rio Grande Valley was led by Troy Williams’ 23pts and Jarvis Threatt who scored 21pts. Team Canada’s Kyle Wiltjer was held to 7pts to go with 5rebs.

The win capped a stellar season for the 905 as they finished with the league’s best record and second best regular season record ever in the D-League history. Head Coach Jerry Stackhouse, already named the D-League’s Coach of the Year, has put his name on the radar for an eventual gig coaching an NBA team.

On Point has the scoop as the Raptors affiliate made history.
