DeRozan records 1st career triple-double in blowout of Raptors

DeRozan records 1st career triple-double in blowout of Raptors

Leonard scored 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting, but was showered with boos and jeers throughout the contest.

Popovich was asked whether he expected fans to boo Leonard, who played just nine games last season with the Spurs due to a right quadriceps injury. No, not at all. Of course, Thomas is speaking on Leonard being the 2014 NBA Finals MVP in the Miami series.

Two days after being serenaded by chants of "M-V-P!" in Toronto, Raptors star Kawhi Leonard is about to return to an arena where fans won't be almost so kind.

In July previous year, DeRozan was traded to the Spurs along with Raptors teammate Jakob Poeltl and a protected first-round pick in exchange for Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green.

San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan talks to the media during USA Basketball's minicamp Thursday, July 26, 2018, at the Mendenhall Center on the campus of UNLV. DeRozan was visibly amped to face his old team and his energy was infectious - San Antonio finished the night outscoring Toronto 27-17 in transition and often made the Raptors uncomfortable playing at a faster pace. DeRozan is having his best season for rebounds (5.9) and assists (6.3) and his 22.9 points per game is within range of his career high of 23.5 points.

"I think it'll be loud, like a playoff game, I assume", Green added.

The Spurs have put together multiple video tributes for both Leonard and Danny Green to celebrate their contributions to the organization, according to sources.

"While I'm sure it wasn't easy for Kawhi or anyone, we wish him well with the future of his career".

The Spurs now have a record of 22-17 and are seventh place in the Western Conference.

Maybe we should have seen this coming.

"I don't speak for other people, but I hope that we'll treat everybody with kindness and respect", said Popovich.

"It really wasn't [anything]", he said. "It was just a fun game".

In a video that's been gaining popularity on Twitter, a woman believed to be Leonard's mother can be seen yelling at an obnoxious Spurs fan in the section next to her's within the venue.
