The "how would he be greeted in his return" questions were quickly answered during Leonard's pregame player introduction, when Kawhi was booed into oblivion immediately after fellow former Spur Danny Green was showered with cheers.

It might have been tough for Toronto Raptors fans to watch Thursday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs, but it couldn't have been as hard as it was for Kawhi Leonard's mom, Kim Leonard.

Leonard also spoke to San Antonio assistant coach Chip Engelland as well as former teammates Patty Mills, Bryn Forbes, Derrick White and Rudy Gay following Toronto's loss, according to ESPN.

"Kawhi is a high-character guy", Popovich said, via the San Antonio Express-News.

Unlike Leonard, Green was given a rousing ovation when his name was called. "So, I felt badly, honestly".

"Media does a great job to stir people's minds and influence them to think a certain way", Leonard said, via TSN.

SAN ANTONIO - DeMar DeRozan said going into Thursday night's Raptors-Spurs matchup that he had "wanted to break every single record that was there" for Toronto.

San Antonio closed the first quarter in front by 19 (38-19) and led by as many as 28 points to cruise to an easy victory.

Considering how the Warriors were able to take the lead before the final possession, Harden's game-winner was poetic justice. We all make decisions in our lives about what we're going to do with our futures and he has that same right as any of us.

DeRozan was met with "MVP" chants earlier in the game when he went to the line.

Kyle Lowry has appeared in 30 games this season for the Raptors. The versatile guard made the first triple-double of his career.

Spurs: DeRozan is the first Spurs player to have at least 15 points 10 rebounds and five assists in a half since Tim Duncan in 2007.
