He beat LA inside and outside on the way to the biggest offensive game of his career.
The Raptors have been very cautious with Leonard in the early going, and Nurse already had told ESPN after Friday's game in Phoenix that Leonard would be sitting out one half of the team's back-to-backs indefinitely, having already sat out one half in each of Toronto's first two this season. "We looked athletic and fast all over the place tonight". On Sunday, the Raptors managed to pick up a lopsided win over the Lakers without Leonard available but the task could be more hard on the road in Salt Lake City, as the Jazz are quite formidable within the friendly confines of their home arena. Toronto was forced to re-insert its starters in the final minutes to preserve the win.

The Raptors didn't seem to miss the star too much, as they stormed to victory over LeBron James and the Lakers.
Toronto's caution is understandable, given Leonard missed all but nine games with the San Antonio Spurs last season due to tendinopathy in his right quad. Nurse doesn't know whether Leonard will play Monday at Utah. Denzel Washington, Snoop Dogg, Adam Levine, Kristen Bell and Odell Beckham Jr. were among the celebrities attending the game.
Leonard sat out with soreness in his left foot, depriving Lakers fans of their only look at the superstar before he could become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
The Lakers' first quarter was shockingly bad. The lead then ballooned to 20 halfway through the third quarter as Toronto scored another 20 points through the first 6:35 of the stanza.
