Canadian Chris Boucher continued his dominant G League season Wednesday and set a Raptors 905 record in the process.

Boucher scored 47 points in a 133-126 loss to Oklahoma City Blue, setting a franchise record for points in a game. The 47 points smashes the previous record of 37, also set by Boucher on Nov. 24.

Boucher, a 25-year-old forward, is averaging 29.3 points through 14 games this season, which is the second highest mark in the G League. He’s shooting just over 50 per cent from the field and averaging over 11 rebounds per game.

The Toronto Raptors signed Boucher to a two-way contract at the end of training camp. Last season, his first in the G League, he averaged 11.8 points in 20 games with the Santa Cruz Warriors.

Boucher made his NBA debut in a game with the Golden State Warriors last season and has also appeared in three NBA games with the Raptors this season.
