Leonard returns to help Raptors improve to NBA-best 11-1

Leonard returns to help Raptors improve to NBA-best 11-1

If Leonard is unable to play in Wednesday night's game, OG Anunoby will likely see an uptick in usage rate.

The Kings, now 5-4, haven't had a home game since beating Washington 116-112 on October 26. So far this season, he's looked every bit the player he was previously, averaging 26.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 steals in seven games for the Raptors while shooting 50.4 percent from the field and 44.8 percent from 3-point range.

The Toronto Raptors swept their notoriously hard four-game West Coast road trip and kept their ideal record with Kawhi Leonard in the lineup intact with a 114-105 win over the Sacramento Kings.

The Raptors jumped out to a commanding 42-17 lead at the end of the first quarter and put the National Basketball Association world's head on a swivel. Wednesday was no exception and he hit another three from Steph Curry range, this one in response to a Buddy Hield three-pointer that capped a mini-Kings run. The center scored from 15 of his 17 shots on the night and finished with a career-high 34 points and 10 rebounds. "You have to be ready to go out and take wins, whether you're playing on back to backs or you have two days before a game". Kings are better offensively, scoring 118.7 ppg to Raptors' 117.4, while the Raptors are better defensively, allowing 108 ppg to Kings' 119.3. It's uncertain if Joerger will use Bogdanovic as a starter or off the bench early in his return, but he's an impact player for the Kings.

So when the Raptors appeared to have been collectively shot out of a cannon as they exploded to a 42-17 lead, it wasn't that they were the aggressor that had a lead that was a surprise, only that it was such a massive one.

But the Raptors didn't miss a beat and their offensive spacing left the court wide-open for drives.
