Blazers Will Play Tonight In Toronto Sans Kanter

Nurse saw a spark in Lowry. "But I just stuck with it, I'm continuing to stick with it, and it just feels good to be playing and playing well". "I see a twinkle in his eye a little bit, I think the Gasol thing, just unbelievable the synergy they have, the plays that they can create for each other", the coach said.

The Raptors have climbed the rankings this season in free throw percentage (#5), points per game (#6) and turnovers per game (#9).

But this time, sitting alone at the team's shootaround as his teammates engaged in shooting games, his words seemed more definitive, more certain.

Leonard also made two clutch free throws down the stretch and a key bank shot with just over 4 minutes to play.

"They had an answer every time", Lillard said.

One day after the Toronto Raptors practiced "game-winning shots", Kawhi Leonard made one against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Portland Trail Blazers forward Al-Farouq Aminu (8) pressures Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard (2) as he drives the ball during the second half of an NBA basketball game, Friday, March 1, 2019 in Toronto.

"It's always great to come in and bounce back and get a win", Leonard said.

Marc Gasol added 19 points, eight rebounds and six assists as Toronto ended Portland's season-high, five-game winning streak.

Portland center Enes Kanter won't travel to Toronto with the Trail Blazers over fears that he could be arrested.

The former Knicks player who was signed by Portland last month didn't travel with NY for their game in London earlier this season fearing for his safety. Kanter, a Turkey native, has been an outspoken critic of the Turkish president for years. His Turkish passport was revoked in 2017. Kawhi Leonard led the Raptors in the loss with 28 points.

The Blazers opened the second quarter with an 11-2 run to go ahead by two points.

After Portland took a one-point lead, Lowry's floater in the lane put Toronto on top with 35 seconds remaining.

The Raptors are in Detroit to face former coach Dwane Casey and his Pistons on Sunday.
