It's still early and we'll see how he looks at the end of the year, but it sure looks like the Raptors got the second best player in the league version of Kawhi. Even for one year, that has a real shot at even beating the Warriors just because they can really match up defensively with so much length.

He's really finding his groove. He looks so pedestrian while doing elite things, it's amazing.

Yeah, I really appreciate the solid Tim Duncan approach - not much flash but just solid. I guess the Raps are taking a more classic approach (or simply finding their style), but so far I haven't seen the pushing the ball up the court quickly along with quick passing. So far it's the casual stroll up the court, everyone get set, 2 or 3 passes than shot. I don't mind the pace up the court but I do want to see more ball and body movement to be less predictable.

Has only played three games but Leonard already has pretty good chemistry with the guys. Helps to have Danny Green

Just imagine when he's back to being fully game fit.

Could this possibly be the first NBA finals for the Raptors? They'd get destroyed, but what an accomplishment that would be for the franchise.

Toronto's a place that really appreciates a player like Kawhi. If you play hard and don't appear to be slacking, you're loved. I'm sure the warm reception is pushing him to play harder. First team to 5-0 as well.

Yep. Perfect example of this is the Junkyard Dog. He was a huge fan favourite.

6-0. Best start in franchise history and averaging over 110 pts per game so far. Pretty sweet.

Last night really showed this team's depth. You'd think without fvv/wright/og that the bench would struggle but Brown had a great game and Powell/Richardson were fine. Kawhi starting to shake the rust off and Lowry playing career basketball, this is fun to watch. Very excited to see how they measure up with the Bucks on Monday with them looking so good early.

Against the Bucks, expect 7-0. Adekumpo.... is damn good but the full lineup can't compare to the Raps overall. Aside from Boston the East is a breeze. The West is where they'll show how good they really are.

Ty Lue has been fired. Not a huge shock, but hey still made like $35 million and LeBron got him a ring, can't complain too much I'd hope.

Raps resting Kawhi tonight (per TSN), I get it with the back to back in Washington, but tonight is a big game. Kind of disappointed we won't see best on best in the matchup of the only undefeated teams left. With no Leonard or OG, I can see Giannis having a monster game.

The Greek Freak is also out tonight with a concussion.

The Warriors scored 92 points and made 17 threes in the first half, cause that's normal.
