Pascal Siakam Has Extremely Bizarre (and Hilarious) Explanation For Big Game Sunday


'Spicy P' might have just taken on a whole new meaning. 

NBA players, like all athletes, have had some interesting superstitions over the years. But Pascal Siakam credits his best performance of the season on Sunday to probably the most bizarre one ever:

"My brother, he has a kid, my niece, and usually I don't like carrying newborns. They're just so fragile," said Siakam after his 31-point game. "She's like two months old, and I've been putting off just picking her up... Yesterday, I picked her up. And she peed on me!... Maybe it was that."

Spicy 'P', indeed.  

It was no 'accident' that the Toronto Raptors were able to down the Washington Wizards on Sunday behind Siakam's performance. His 17 second-quarter points and 24 in the first half made him the difference-maker, and staked the Raptors to a huge lead they were never close to relinquishing. 

Along with 31 points, Siakam added 6 rebounds and 3 assists, on very efficient 10-21 shooting, plus 10-12 from the free throw line. 

Now if the Raptors can get Siakam's niece to shower some good luck on the rest of the team, they'll be just golden.
