For the first time in franchise history,  the Toronto Raptors have returned home from a West Coast road trip without tasting defeat.

The Raptors closed out the perfect four-game trip with a 114-105 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.

The victory puts the Raptors at 11-1 which is currently the best record in the NBA.

Kawhi Leonard returned to the lineup after missing two games with an ankle injury. Leonard led the way with 25 points and 11 rebounds and Pascal Siakam chipped in with 19 points.

Though the Raptors led the Kings for most of the game they did have some struggles. Their sloppy play resulted in them giving the ball away a season-high 23 times.

The Kings got solid play from their young stars. Willie Cauley-Stein, Buddy Hield and De’Aaron Fox all contributed with at least 20 points.

The Raptors will now return to the Scotiabank Arena for a three-game homestand. They take on the visiting New York Knicks on Saturday afternoon.

The team announced Wednesday that guard Norman Powell will miss 4-6 weeks with a shoulder injury.
