The San Antonio Spurs decimated the Toronto Raptors in Leonard’s return

Yesterday's game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Toronto Raptors was a battle to see which player would triumph over their former team.

Leonard helped lead the Spurs to an National Basketball Association championship in 2014 while being named Finals MVP, but played just nine games last season with some rather mysterious injury issues, leading many to believe he, in some way, "quit" on the team.

Seven players scored in double figures for the losing squad, with Leonard having a team-high 21 points (on 8/13 shooting) and five assists.

In the second quarter after the Spurs had built a large lead, Leonard was met with chants of "traitor" when he went to the free-throw line.

The Raptors' ineptitude against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday couldn't even save them from one fitting indignity.

If not for the media, Leonard seems to think it wouldn't have gone that way. "So I already knew that's how it was going to be".

Considering how the Warriors were able to take the lead before the final possession, Harden's game-winner was poetic justice.

Of the 8.6 million New Yorkers, the program will target the 600,000 that now don't have insurance, he said. Lots of time and energy has been put into taking away health care from tens of millions of people.

The throwback performance by DeMar with all eyes of Raptors fans squarely on the highly-anticipated contest isn't necessarily causing many to lament the trade that brought a MVP candidate and a solid three-and-D guy to Toronto this offseason, but it did remind them why it was so excruciatingly tough to watch one of the most beloved figures in franchise history leave so abruptly.

"I felt badly about it", Popovich told ESPN about how Leonard was treated by the Spurs fans.

"We didn't do a good job in transition, defence", Leonard said.

Wednesday marked the third game of the season that DeRozan dished out 10-plus assists. He's just the fifth player in National Basketball Association history to post a triple-double in his first game against a former team.
