Yuta Watanabe followed his NBA career-high scoring outburst with another personal milestone Sunday, scoring in double digits for a third straight game as the Toronto Raptors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-106.

The 26-year-old forward chipped in 10 points to go with four rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes off the bench at Tampa's Amalie Arena, shooting 3-for-6 from the field, including 1-for-2 from deep.

The double-digit scoring streak is the longest of Watanabe's three-year NBA career, and includes his career-best 21 points in a win against the Orlando Magic on Friday.

Forward Chris Boucher led all scorers with 31 for the Raptors, who improved to 24-34 with their third win in a row.
