Toronto Raptors star Pascal Siakam had quite the day on Sunday against the Washington Wizards as he led the way with 31 points in a big win. It was one of his best performances of the season thus far since returning from shoulder surgery and he had a rather hilarious reason for why he was able to thrive on the offensive end.

Via TSN's Josh Lewenberg:

“My brother has a kid, my niece, and usually I don’t like carrying newborns, they’re just so fragile. She’s 2 months old & I’ve been putting off picking her up. Yesterday I picked her up & she peed on me. I dunno, maybe it was that.”

That's some funny stuff from the Raptors forward. Babies can be good luck sometimes, perhaps this was the case? Nevertheless, Siakam will be very pleased with how he played. The 27-year-old was 10 for 21 from the field and 10 for 12 from the charity stripe and did a really nice job of getting downhill on a consistent basis.

With the victory, the Raptors improved to 11-13 on the season and have now won two straight games. Toronto's defense is also showing out lately, limiting their opponents to less than 100 points in three consecutive contests. They'll need more big performances like this from Siakam if they're going to make a run at an eight seed or play-in spot this season.
