The Raptors 905 clinched their third consecutive playoff berth with a 112-82 win over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

Jordan Loyd was magnificent for the 905, finishing with a triple-double of 24 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Wade Baldwin IV chipped in 23 points as well, helping the 905 improve its record to 28-18.

The Raptors’ G-League affiliate currently sit third in the Eastern Conference standings, three games behind the Long Island Nets for first place.

The 905 have reached the G League Finals in consecutive seasons, winning the league championship in 2016-17 — the club’s second season in existence — then falling short to the Austin Toros in 2017-18.

The G League playoffs get underway on Mar. 26.
