San Antonio Spurs Player Grades in Win Over Toronto Raptors

By Jay Desai

The San Antonio Spurs improved to 4-0 on their current six-game home-stand on Tuesday night, holding off the Toronto Raptors 117-107.

Holding off is the best term that describes this game as the Spurs led by 20-points at the half. The Raptors were resilient, however, cutting the lead down to six with less than four minutes to play in the game.

Unfortunately for Toronto, they could not sustain momentum, giving up a 7-0 run after cutting the deficit to six which would ultimately seal their fate.

Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard was on top of his game again, scoring 24 for his fifth straight 20-plus point performance. The former San Diego State star also added 11 rebounds and five steals.

For the Raptors, it was their backcourt that kept them in the game. Point guard Kyle Lowry finished with 32 points while DeMar DeRoazan had a solid night of his own with 21 points.

San Antonio Spurs. KAWHI LEONARD. A+. It looks like we may have to change the grading system tonight after Kawhi Leonard’s effort against the Raptors. An “A+” just doesn’t give enough justice to the kind of night the 23-year-old had. Leonard flashed max-contract material on Tuesday with his 24 points, 11 rebounds, and five steals. His defense was also great, limiting Toronto forward Terrance Ross to a poor 2-of-9 shooting night. Did we mention he also put Raptors center <strong><a href=. SF

B. The San Antonio Spurs bench was not really needed in this one as they received 84 points from their starters, but that does not mean the reserves did not do a good job.
