Leonard back as Raptors rip sixers

Leonard back as Raptors rip sixers

The Raptors enter Tuesday's contest with a 6-1 record, dropping their first game Monday night against the Bucks.

The Sixers had a 31-point scorer of their own Tuesday in Joel Embiid. The big man has recorded a double-double in six of Philadelphia's seven games and he's scored 30-plus on four occasions.

Now listening to Bayless' rant he said Leonard "quit" on the Spurs but that might be a bit of an exaggeration and Shannon Sharpe calls out his argument saying that San Antonio would take Kawhi back if they could.

Philadelphia trailed by as many as 26 in the third quarter before fighting back. "Obviously, we were short, but the whole game, the turnovers reflect on why we were in that situation in the first place". Philadelphia is one of the most physically imposing teams in the league, and they almost erased a 21-point deficit by collecting 17 offensive rebounds. Additionally, the Pistons almost got revenge for the blowout loss they suffered to the Celtics last week when the two teams meet in Boston, but ended up losing a close one. Ilyasova (14 points) and Thon Maker (11) were active up front in the first half to help make up for the absence of Antetokounmpo, who cheered on his teammates one row behind the bench.

"They have made me comfortable and trying to get me into good spots on the floor".

The reigning Rookie of the Year was covered a good amount by Kawhi Leonard, and Danny Green as well.

Joel Embiid had the ball with a couple of minutes to play and Philadelphia on a roll when Kawhi Leonard chose to help himself to the ball.

Simmons coughed up the ball 11 times against the Raptors.

Leonard joined the Raptors on a one-year deal last summer and has already settled in well. Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic each scored 22 points as the Blazers completed a 104-85 win over the Rockets, who have won just one game in six outings.

Leonard didn't play the night before against the Bucks as the team looks to lighten his load in back-to-back situations which has expected given he only played nine games last season.

"To see Kawhi play basketball at the level he is playing it does not surprise me", said Brett Brown.

"He can guard the ball, he can guard people coming off pin-downs, he can guard guys on the post but mostly, I think it's just his natural instinct for getting his hands on stuff The ball's popping around and, boom, he comes out of there with it any variety of ways".

The Raptors played that game without the services Leonard, who was given the game off by Nurse, part of his early-season workload management program.
