Kawhi Leonard is back with the Raptors and it picked up right where it left off with him on the floor.

The Raptors took down the Kings 114-105 Wednesday as Leonard scored 25 points on 7-of-17 shooting. He added 11 rebounds and two assists, as well.

Leonard had missed the last two games with an ankle injury, but he and coach Nick Nurse insisted it wasn't a serious setback. Wednesday's performance proved that to be right.

Raptors is now 11-1 on the season, tied with the Warriors for the best record in the NBA.

Kings is surprisingly good at 6-5. Willie Cauley-Stein (24 points), Buddy Hield (24) and De'Aaron Fox (20) all scored at least 20 points in the game.


Anthony Davis had 32 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and four blocks in a 107-98 win over the Bulls.

Heat center Hassan Whiteside had 29 points, 20 rebounds and nine blocks in Miami's 95-88 win over the Spurs.

Pacers guard Victor Oladipo scored 36 points on 14-of-30 shooting while adding seven assists and six rebounds. Indiana lost to the 76ers, 100-94.


Nuggets center Nikola Jokic was in foul trouble all night in an 89-87 loss to the Grizzlies. He finished with four points on 0-of-1 shooting while turning it over six times.


Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell threw one down in the paint during Utah's 117-102 win over the Mavericks.
