Raptors-Spurs Betting Guide: Will Toronto Cover in Kawhi’s San Antonio Return?

Raptors-Spurs Betting Guide: Will Toronto Cover in Kawhi’s San Antonio Return?”

However, while Spurs fans let Leonard hear it with boos in his first return to San Antonio, his relationship with head coach Gregg Popovich seems to be far from a negative one.

Despite being traded for one another in the 2018 offseason, both DeMar DeRozan and Kawhi Leonard tried to focus on the task at hand for their respective teams, but neither could truly deny the fact that it was more than just another game. No, not at all.

"I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears wearing that jersey, believing in something, and I put a lot of work in here", Leonard said Thursday morning before the Raptors had their final preparation prior to meeting the Spurs in one of the most highly-anticipated games of the season. Some reports have suggested the Spurs might have misdiagnosed his initial injury, while others have painted Leonard as a star who just wanted to force his way to a bigger market.

DeMar DeRozan got the best of Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors in an emotion-fueled Spurs win on Thursday.

Green, who is expected to get a warm reception by Spurs fans, was looking forward to San Antonio.

DeRozan finished the game with 21 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists, according to ESPN.

"My teammates always find openings, they knock it down and they make me look good".

DeRozan ended the half with a bit of recent history in his pocket, as he became the first Spur to have 15-plus points, 10-plus rebounds and 5-plus assists in a half since Tim Duncan did so in 2007.

In eight seasons with San Antonio - the bulk of his National Basketball Association career prior to this year - Green established himself as a starter and key contributor for some contending Spurs teams, and his exit wasn't almost as painful. 'Kawhi's a high-character guy.

Toronto (28-11) has spent most of the season atop the Eastern Conference but is now second behind Milwaukee (26-10) based on winning percentage.

"I don't speak for other people, but I hope that we'll treat everybody with kindness and respect", said Popovich.

Maybe we should have seen this coming.

"I told him it was about time", Popovich said. "It was just a fun game".
