Leonard scores 25 points, Raptors beat DeRozan, Spurs
TORONTO (AP) - Kawhi Leonard had a go-ahead dunk with 15 seconds left and scored 25 points to help the Toronto Raptors beat his former San Antonio Spurs teammates 120-117 on Friday night, spoiling DeMar DeRozan return. Leonard stole the ball from DeRozan at midcourt and raced in alone for a one-handed slam. Traded to San Antonio in the offseason deal that sent Leonard to Toronto, DeRozan received a warm welcome in the homecoming, but was denied a second victory over his former team. He finished with 23 points. Lowry and DeRozan embraced near center court following the final whistle as the sellout crowd of 20,058 cheered in approval. Pascal Siakam added 22 points to help Toronto win its seventh straight game.
