In one of the more highly-anticipated games of the 2018-19 season, the San Antonio Spurs used a dominant first-quarter and a career performance from DeMar DeRozan to earn a dominant 125-107 win over Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is downplaying the significance of Kawhi Leonard's return to San Antonio.

The Raptors have been one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association this season and will enter their game against the Spurs with a 28-11 record.

Leonard's mom still resides in San Antonio, which is why she was at the game in the first place to support her son.

Over the summer, DeRozan said that his first meeting with the Raptors would be a game he had circled on his calendar.

While others went as far as straight-up hoping for DeMar to go full savage mode and have a monster night against Toronto despite their Raptors fandom.

"That's why I probably don't feel it as much now, probably Toronto for sure". "You want an All-Star player back as soon as possible".

With the win, the Spurs move to 11-3 since December 6 while the Raptors are 7-7 in their last 14 games.

Leonard isn't anxious about the reception, saying that a negative reaction "can only make me a better player". What was interestingly noticeable about the video was how the Spurs broke up highlight clips of Leonard and Green, so that the fans couldn't boo throughout the entire segment. "Things like that only get me better for the long run, so it's going to be a good game".

"Honestly, I wish I had something cool to say to look for it, but I haven't thought about it at all", DeRozan told reporters.

"Obviously, I had an inside scoop on the type of player he is and what kind of person he is". We have just got to embrace it.

The other player the Raptors acquired in the blockbuster trade predicted as much on Thursday. I'm waiting to see just like everybody else.
