Forwards Scottie Barnes and O.G. Anunoby continued their recent strong play with 19 and 17 points respectively.
Center Jakob Poeltl posted his third straight double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds.
"I thought everybody had their moment tonight, those six guys all produced and shot a pretty good percentage, had a good number of assists, low turnovers," said Raptors head coach Nick Nurse following the win. "We're playing offense the right way."
The six Raptors players combined for 119 of the team's 128 total points, and grabbed 48 of the team's season-high 59 rebounds.
