WATCH: Kawhi Leonard’s 34 not enough in Game 2
Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard has been on another level in the playoffs and he continued his torrid play on Monday (Manila time) in Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.
Leonard led all scorers with 34 points, including 16-of-16 from the free throw line, that went with 14 rebounds three days after having 23 points, eight rebounds and five assists in a 118-109 win in Game 1.
The 27-year-old Leonard’s efforts, however, were still not enough as the Warriors beat the Raptors, 109-104, to steal home court advantage heading into Thursday’s Game 3 at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
