According to Blake Murphy of Raptors Republic, Toronto had never been outscored by more than 27 points in a single quarter.
Perhaps the most impressive part of the run was how little of an impact star forward Kristaps Porzingis had after effectively carrying the team so far this season.
Tim Hardaway Jr. was the star this time around, scoring 12 points during the run as part of his career-high 38-point effort. Enes Kanter also added seven points during the historic streak to help complete the come-from-behind effort.
