25 points for Leonard as Raptors beat DeRozan, Spurs

More than loyalty the relationship between De Mar DeRozan and Raptors fans was about connection

More than loyalty the relationship between De Mar DeRozan and Raptors fans was about connection

This was his first trip back to Toronto since the trade in the offseason between the two teams that saw the two Los Angeles area products being swopped for each other.

DeMar DeRozan was left humbled by the reception he received from Raptors fans on an ultimately bittersweet return to the Scotiabank Arena. "It sucks that the critical play was me turning the ball over", he said. "To come back and get a reception like that is definitely humbling, beyond gratifying", he said. "And I appreciate it".

Still, DeRozan would experience the joy of not just one but two standing ovations from a crowd that treated the guard as if he had never left town.

The longest, loudest cheer came after a tribute video that ran during the first timeout.

DeRozan tried to carry the ball up court but slipped while being pressured. Leonard is a calm, composed playmaker with the ability to flat-out win the game, bringing energy that DeRozan simply can't match. He then sank two free throws to seal it. Pascal Siakam had 22 points, Kyle Lowry and Danny Green had 17 apiece, Serge Ibaka finished with 13 and newcomer Jeremy Lin chipped in with 11.

Toronto selected him as the ninth-overall pick in the 2009 draft.

Soon, Khloe took to Twitter and responded to Fleiss herself, telling the showrunner that she is not "clickbait". Just so Fleiss was clear, Kim shared a screenshot of the text with Kris" reply which said: "No lol'.

Instead he left town at odds with team president Masai Ujiri over the unwanted move.

Marco Belinelli scored 21 points for San Antonio, Davis Bertans had 16, and former Raptor Rudy Gay added 12 points and 10 rebounds.

With just under 20 seconds on the clock and Toronto trailing 117-116, Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry met former Raptor, DeMar DeRozan, at half court with a double team.

DeRozan, surrounded by cameras as he headed towards the visitors dressing room before Friday's game, had clearly been thinking about what welcome he might receive.

"I'm pretty sure it's going to be something that I couldn't expect", DeRozan said on Thursday.

PACERS 126, PELICANS 111: Wesley Matthews scored 15 of his 24 points during a third-quarter rally, Domantis Sabonis had 18 points and 12 rebounds, and IN overcame a 20-point deficit at Indianapolis. Pau did not see action.
