  • Maintenance rest starts early: Kawhi Leonard, Gordon Hayward, Jimmy Butler all out Saturday

    Last season the NBA leaned in on teams resting players, particularly in high-profile, televised games. The NBA built in rest before those games to help, and teams mostly played along, but players who teams wanted to be cautious with still got their rest. The rest is starting early this season — Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard, Boston’s Gordon Hayward, and Minnesota’s Jimmy Butler are all out Saturday night on the second night of back-to-backs.

  • Raptors, Celtics Set the Bar High to Start the Season

    While the Eastern Conference effectively remains the NBA’s junior circuit until further notice, one pleasant ripple effect of LeBron James’s foray to the other coast is that, for the first time in who-knows-how-long (OK, approximately eight seasons), this is a race that feels wide open. Two of them played Friday night as the Celtics and Raptors met in Toronto. The Raptors pulled away late, and did so convincingly for a 113–101 final score.

  • Raptors star Kawhi Leonard: Too early for MVP chants

    Kawhi Leonard received "MVP" chants during the Toronto Raptors' 113-101 win over the Boston Celtics but he thinks "it's a little too early". In just his second match since being acquired from the San Antonio Spurs, the 27-year-old forward scored 31 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Raptors' victory on Friday. Prior to shooting a free throw in the second half, Toronto fans aimed a chant at Leonard that he appreciated but thought was premature.
