Panic time? No? Welcome to basketball purgatory home of the Suns
The Raptors have been very cautious with Leonard in the early going, and Nurse already had told ESPN after Friday's game in Phoenix that Leonard would be sitting out one half of the team's back-to-backs indefinitely, having already sat out one half in each of Toronto's first two this season.
"They're playing like they're the best team in the Eastern Conference so far", James said of the Raptors.
On their home court, the Lakers succumbed to the firepower of Raptors' roster, trailing 42-17 after 12 minutes.
While we can't expect LeBron to just cancel his plans every time the Lakers lose, it's not surprising that fans criticized James after he scored 18 points in a loss against a team that did not have its best player on the floor in Kawhi Leonard.
Toronto didn't let its huge lead dwindle significantly until the final minutes, when the Lakers' youngster got the margin down to 117-107 with LeBron James on the bench. "And they put it on us".
"I don't want to talk about the word "disappointing", I just think we need to get better". "We got off to an unbelievable start". They did so without their top player, Kawhi Leonard, who sat out the game due to left ankle soreness.
There was no word on whether Leonard would potentially be available for Monday night's game in Utah against the Jazz.
Lakers: Starting with their fourth-quarter slump in Portland, the Lakers were outscored 75-34 in a 21:16 stretch spanning the two games. The Lakers would love to sign a second superstar like Leonard, who grew up in the Inland Empire area, one hour east of Los Angeles.
