"You just have to learn each other and know what to expect out of one another, how to challenge each other".
Prior to tipoff the Lakers learned they would not have to contend with former Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and his season averages of 26.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.0 steals, as Toronto coach Nick Nurse announced his star forward was being held out with soreness in his left foot. "I don't either. It's a long season, so we're thinking about the long road", Leonard said Friday night after the Raptors ran their record to 8-1 with a 107-98 win in Phoenix. He wanted to head home to Southern California, and if Leonard had a choice he would be playing for either the Los Angeles Lakers or the Clippers.
Leonard is sitting out for the third time in his first 10 games with the Raptors. And it will still be the second night of a back-to-back for them.
First off, even without Kawhi, the Toronto Raptors looked incredible in Sunday's contest against the Los Angeles Lakers.
That said, back-to-back or not, the Jazz are likely in for a challenge when the team that appears to be the best in the East comes to town.
Nurse added after the game that he doesn't think the injury is serious, but Leonard will be re-evaluated on Saturday. He missed two games last month, skipping half of two back-to-back sets. Is Leonard happy in Toronto?
However, they will not be showing the clash between the Lakers and the Raptors. But with an increased chance that Leonard will indeed play and zero chance that Mitchell will suit up, it's not looking good for the slumping Utah Jazz on Monday who are in danger of dropping four straight.
