DeMar DeRozan records first career triple-double against Raptors

Leonard's sister Miesha, who runs the Instagram account "kawhileonardofficialfanpage", claimed the family had received threats over his move to Toronto.

Every time he touched the rock, went to the basket, or did basically anything during warmups, the crowd jeered their former All-Star like he stole all their mothers' lunch money. Spurs on the other hand have better percentages both in field goals (47.6% to 47.4%) and in 3-pointers (39.7% to 34.1%). So it doesn't matter what we say.

"You move on in life", Popovich said. "It's a waste of our time". The Leonard battle wasn't just exclusive to the floor action after a Spurs fan caught Kawhi's mom in the stands yelling at one particular Spurs fan to "shut up" during the game.

Kawhi Leonard was the headliner on Thursday evening, as the All-NBA forward returned to San Antonio for the first time in a different uniform.

Leonard requested a trade in June amidst reports of tension between his representatives and the Spurs' front office.

DeRozan ended the half with a bit of recent history in his pocket, as he became the first Spur to have 15-plus points, 10-plus rebounds and 5-plus assists in a half since Tim Duncan did so in 2007.

Leonard still speaks like he plays for the Spurs even though he is no longer in San Antonio.

Fans felt Leonard was a traitor for selling out San Antonio that quickly. "Everybody's anticipating the game".

The Welshman is in the a year ago of his contract and the Gunners have offered him a new deal which he failed to accept. Youngster Emile Smith Rowe who has impressed in the Europa League and Carabao Cup remains sidelined by a hip problem.

Defeating one of the league's best teams is huge for the Spurs, who look to remain in the West's competitive playoff picture.

What type of welcome Leonard will receive is up for debate. A chorus of boos, the expected soundtrack. I'm hoping that it will be a warm welcome back to San Antonio, a place where he has won a championship and grew up here.

"The media does a great job to stir up people's mind and to influence them to think a certain way, so I already knew how that was going to be", Leonard said. "I hope for one [reaction], predict and guess another. That's what I expect".

Maybe we should have seen this coming. Leonard was traded this offseason alongside Danny Green in a deal for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first round pick. But the past is the past and I'm still playing.I really won't reflect on what has happened until I retire. So you end up doing a lot of self-evaluation and self-reflection when circumstances change. 'Kawhi's a high-character guy.

"I'm waiting to see".

Both players logged at least seven seasons with the Spurs before being traded.

All the hoopla about Leonard's return is allowing DeRozan to slide under the radar.

Five months later, DeRozan said he hadn't thought much about the matchup against his former team.
