Kawhi Leonard helped the Toronto Raptors extend their success in season-opening games.
Leonard had 24 points and 12 rebounds in his Toronto debut, Kyle Lowry scored 27 points and the Raptors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-104 on Wednesday night, extending their streak of opening-night victories to six.
“You don’t see many Mack trucks that move like Ferraris,” says Toronto Raptors teammate Danny Green, before a season-opening 116-104 win over the post-LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers. “Kawhi’s just so naturally gifted with what he’s given to make life harder for you, with his length, his arms, his hands. He takes up so much space and can recover so fast with that length, he makes you uncomfortable dribbling the ball.
Kawhi also got a nice intro.
It's still only game 1, let's see how the season plays out, and if he eventually has his heart set on playing in Los Angeles.
Time will tell.
