Raptors' Kawhi Leonard Grew Up Idolizing Allen Iverson, Wasn't A Lakers Fan

James was held to just 18 points, his lowest point total in nine games since joining the Lakers. "I don't either. It's a long season, so we're thinking about the long road", Leonard said Friday night after the Raptors ran their record to 8-1 with a 107-98 win in Phoenix.

"That is not who we are", said Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said. Kawhi Leonard led the Raptors with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting to go with six rebounds, five assists and two steals. Kyle Kuzma scored 24 points and Brandon Ingram added 16 for the Lakers.

"Man, to me, the most important thing is about the team", Ibaka said.

Then, since it would be the second night of a back-to-back for them without Kawhi playing against a full strength and angry Jazz team, I went out on a limb and pinned the Jazz as the probable winners. "He's using his size, his power, and using pretty good footwork, so it's something we can go to". But this game was destined to be a tough one for the Lakers.

No wonder that both the teams that share the trait also share the top spot in the table. In defence , it is a completely different matter. "We play City twice", he said.

Antetokounmpo finished with 26 points, 15 rebounds and 11 assists, securing his second triple double of the season with his 10th assist at the end of the third quarter.

Perhaps the Jazz will surprise and rally together without Donovan to come out on top. As long as Leonard plays, I'm fully on board with Toronto. Fans at courtside included Denzel Washington, Kristen Bell, Dax Shepard, Ariel Winter, middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez, New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and UFC featherweight title contender Brian Ortega, who will fight Max Holloway for the belt in Toronto on December 8. The Lakers made the game - which the Raptors led by 31 points at one juncture - closer than expected as they outscored Toronto 27-20 in the fourth quarter. If there was a mercy rule in basketball the Lakers would have exercised it in the first.

According to oddsmakers at BetNow.eu, the Raptors are a 3-point favorite on the spread line.
