Raptors destroy LeBron's Lakers even without Kawhi in the lineup

  • The art of transition defence Danny Green on timing reading and rhythm

Following a game in which the Raptors led 42-17 at the end of the first quarter en route to a 121-107 win, LeBron was spotted by TMZ pulling up to Diddy's 49th birthday party in a Rolls Royce with his wife Savannah. They are in first place in the east.

When Toronto Raptors forward Serge Ibaka found out Kawhi Leonard would be sitting out Sunday night's game at Staples Center against the Los Angeles Lakers, he was determined to make up for Leonard's absence. Are they serious championship contenders? Dwane Casey was sacked after the playoffs last season.

Even though Toronto was the number one seed in the east last season, they chose to make some moves in the offseason.

Leonard sat out the previous two games and got off to a sluggish start early against the Kings before helping Toronto pull away. DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl was shipped in that deal from Toronto. Ibaka went 11 for 11 in the first half, while Lowry had 12 assists as the Raptors hit six 3-pointers and forced nine turnovers. Green is averaging 10.8 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 1.6 APG and 1 SPG so far this season. VanVleet and Anunoby, who have missed a combined seven games already this season, both started to find a groove offensively: their 17 points each were season highs.

Crystal Palace - Premier League - 4 November 2018
If I need to cover immediately the lost ball we need to have good positions over the line in the defensive line. I have to look also at the minutes in the national teams.

They also have a very deep bench once again this season.

Toronto has won five straight since its lone loss this season at Milwaukee on October 29.

The Kings have been without Bogdan Bogdanovic through their 6-4 start this season as he recovered from a procedure on his left knee.

Jamal Murray scored a career-high 48 points to outshine Kyrie Irving, as the Denver Nuggets rallied at home to beat the Celtics 115-107. He also leads the Raptors in rebounds per game (7.6). That is what elite teams do. Greg Monroe, who hadn't played more than 4:49 in a single game before Monday, showed his veteran presence as he stepped up in Ibaka's absence, looking like he hadn't missed a beat as he went 4-for-5 from the field with three rebounds in almost 13 minutes. Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo has been one of the best players in the National Basketball Association this season while Portland are off to a surprising start behind guards Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. "They sent lots of bodies to him, which was good for us to see". Utah went 27-for-41 from the line while Toronto made 13 of their 14 attempts. With him in the west now, those dreams could possibly become a reality for them.
