  • Kawhi Leonard is mercilessly booed in his return to San Antonio blames the media

Mills said he has remained in contact with both Leonard and Green, but sees the matchup against the Raptors as simply another game against a talented opponent.

Kawhi Leonard hears boos throughout the game as he would finish with 21 points.

The Raptors have been one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association this season and will enter their game against the Spurs with a 28-11 record.

Kawhi Leonard has seen it many times in San Antonio, but the Toronto star never experienced it from the opposing bench until Thursday night.

Over the summer, DeRozan said that his first meeting with the Raptors would be a game he had circled on his calendar.

For much of the early part of the season, while Leonard was getting adjusted to his new teammates, the Raptors essentially had two offenses going.

"You don't get this opportunity to be loved in one place and then come somewhere else, and be loved just as much, accepted so quick", DeRozan said. "Doesn't matter what we say, you're going to say whatever you want, so that's a waste of our time".

Federer relishing 'once in a lifetime' Serena clash
Federer faced three break points in his first service game, but kept his cool to race out to a 5-0 lead. Bencic and Federer are the defending champions.

"I wanted to break every single record that was there, and be the first to do every single thing".

"While I'm sure it wasn't easy for Kawhi or anyone, we wish him well with the future of his career".

"We keep saying that all of these games are preparing us for later on down the road, so I hope it's wild and noisy and a close game and all those things that can help us grow as a team". Previously, he was traded to the Toronto Raptors after falling out with the Spurs. "If I can just get some popcorn and watch it, I would, but I might have to play".

"I have no ill will towards him, nothing at all", DeRozan said. "I wasn't on the end kind of how (DeRozan's trade) went down".

While the parties involved may have moved on, many Spurs fans have not. We have just got to embrace it.

Leonard requested a trade in June amidst reports of tension between his representatives and the Spurs' front office. However, it sure seemed like he completely quit on the team previous year because he wanted out.
