Oakland, California: Kawhi Leonard sat out Toronto’s showdown against the Golden State Warriors because of a bruised right hip, but the Raptors cruised to a 113-93 win at Golden State. Earlier in the day, Leonard was deemed questionable while getting treatment on his hip. Toronto coach Nick Nurse spoke to reporters 90 minutes before tip-off and said he was uncertain about Leonard’s status.
The Raptors improved their NBA-best record to 23-7. They beat the Los Angeles Clippers 123-99 without Leonard on Tuesday night and then completed a season sweep of the two-time defending champion Warriors. Toronto beat Golden State 131-128 in overtime on November 29.
