Two men are in serious condition after a stabbing close to the Student Learning Centre at Ryerson University on Monday morning.

Police received a call at 2:05 a.m. about an incident near the intersection of Yonge and Gould streets. They arrived on the scene three minutes later, according to Constable Rob Reid of the Toronto Police Service (TPS).

Currently, TPS does not have a description of the suspects, said Reid. 

Both men found on-scene were transported to a local trauma centre, according to Reid. “There wasn’t an emergency run so that doesn’t say life-threatening to me,” said Reid. “But, stab wounds can be tricky, sometimes they don’t look as bad as they are.” 

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to contact them at 416-808-1400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

The Toronto Raptors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 114-106 on Wednesday.

Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet combined for 66 points. Siakam scored 36 points and had six rebounds, VanVleet had 30 points and seven assists.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson recorded a double-double as he had 16 points and 11 boards. Terence Davis had 15 points and six rebounds.

Marc Gasol had nine points, five assists and five rebounds.

The backcourt duo of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum were held to a combined 28 points. McCollum had 19 while Lillard had 9 points and 10 assists.

Rodney Hood scored 25 and Anfernee Simons had 17. Hassan Whiteside had 12 points and nine rebounds.

The Raptors signed the undrafted Davis on July 11, and has been an underrated addition to the team. He made three three-pointers on Wednesday.

Hollis-Jefferson was signed to help improve the team’s defence since Kawhi Leonard has left, and has shown that he is capable of getting stops and scoring points.

The Raptors conclude their road trip on Satuday when they take on the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center.

Tip-off is set for 8:30 p.m.

The Toronto Raptors held the Los Angeles Lakers to 44 second half points on Sunday and won 113-104.

Pascal Siakam recorded a double-double as he scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Fred VanVleet also had a double-double as he had 23 points and 10 assists. Norman Powell had 14.

Chris Boucher slotted into the bench spot where Serge Ibaka would be, and he scored 15 points and blocked three shots. Terence Davis had 13 points, five rebounds and three assists in 17 minutes of action. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 10.

Anthony Davis scored 27 points for Los Angeles. Both Kyle Kuzma and Troy Daniels came off the bench and scored 15 and 11 points respectively.

LeBron James recorded a triple-double as he had 13 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds. Former Raptor Danny Green scored zero points.

Chris Boucher has shown that he is a player who is capable of playing efficient basketball at multiple levels.

Arguably two highlights of the night came from Pascal Siakam, and coach Nick Nurse.

Nurse won his first coach’s challenge this season.

Toronto’s next game is against the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday at Staples Center.

Tip-off is set for 10:30 p.m.

Brandon Ingram led the Pelicans with 27 points. Jrue Holiday scored 16.

Toronto native Nickeil Alexander-Walker scored 13, and Frank Jackson also scored 13.

Former G-League MVP and defensive player of the year Chris Boucher will be a player that will see more minutes with the injury to Ibaka.
