Serge Ibaka's career night leads Raptors past Lakers

Serge Ibaka's career night leads Raptors past Lakers”

It was still unclear whether Kawhi Leonard would be playing in Los Angeles then resting in Utah, or if he would do the reverse, resting against the Lakers on Sunday then facing the Jazz. "I don't think we've decided how long that's gonna be yet".

"I was just focused", Ibaka said.

Leonard injured his left foot late in the fourth quarter of Toronto's win at Phoenix on Friday night, and coach Nick Nurse says the Raptors are being careful with their superstar. If Leonard sits out Sunday he will miss his one and only game against the Lakers at Staples Center - a team he was rumoured to be interested in joining in the off-season.

Toronto didn't let its huge lead dwindle significantly until the final minutes, when the Lakers' youngster got the margin down to 117-107 with LeBron James on the bench. "The best thing is he's doing it with some real good composure". But as if facing the East-leading Raptors wasn't already going to be hard enough, the Jazz and their fans were hit with an even worse bit of news after I released my initial projections for the week - Donovan Mitchell won't play in the contest.

Leonard said the injury wasn't serious, although the team listed him as questionable to face the Lakers.

Lakers have had mixed fortunes this season, although they have won their last two games on the trot against the Dallas Mavericks and the Portland Trail Blazers. "There's a sense of freedom and joy that comes when a top player like that is out". With all of their rotation players healthy or back from suspension, the Lakers will be looking to establish consistency.
