Leonard scores 37, Raptors beat Warriors 131-128 in OT - Nov 30, 2018

Kawhi
Leonard
Not even a dominant Kevin Durant (6'9''-SF-88, college: Texas) and the Golden State Warriors could slow down the red-hot Toronto Raptors. Kawhi Leonard (6'7''-F-91, college: San Diego St.) scored a season-high 37 points, Pascal Siakam added a career-high 26 and the Raptors overcame a 51-point performance from Durant to beat the Warriors 131-128 in overtime on Thursday night, extending their winning streak to seven. ''We were able to make shots, we were able to get some stops in overtime,'' Leonard said. ''It's a building block for us, and I'm happy we got the win.'' Kyle Lowry (6'0''-PG-86, college: Villanova) had 10 points and 12 assists, Serge Ibaka (6'10''-C/F-89) scored 20 points and Danny Green (6'6''-G/F-87, college: N.Carolina) had 13 as the Raptors snapped an eight-game losing streak against Golden State and won a contest billed as a potential NBA Finals preview. ''What a game,'' Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. ''An incredible basketball game for the fans to watch. We came up just short.'' Toronto improved its league-leading record to 19-4. Durant scored 40 or more in three straight for the first time, finishing with his highest total of the season. He also had 11 rebounds and six assists. ''Tonight we were down early, we were down big and I just tried to be aggressive and go get a bucket,'' Durant said. Klay Thompson (6'7''-G-90, college: Washington St.) scored 23 points and Jonas Jerebko had 16 of his 20 in the fourth quarter and overtime, but Golden State had its three-game winning streak snapped and lost to Toronto for the first time since March 2014. Lowry's 3-pointer with 55 seconds to go in the fourth quarter put the Raptors up 119-113 but Durant replied with back-to-back 3s of his own, including a game-tying shot with 8.6 seconds left. ''When he's feeling it, there's not a whole lot the defense can do,'' Kerr said. Leonard drove and kicked to Ibaka on the final possession, but the Raptors big man couldn't get a shot off before the buzzer. Green hit a tiebreaking 3 with 2:07 left in the extra session, and Toronto added to its lead when Lowry stole the ball from Andre Iguodala (6'6''-SF-84, college: Arizona), leading to a pair of free throws by Siakam. Jerebko's dunk cut the gap to three but Toronto caught another break when Iguodala was called for travelling. Siakam was fouled and made one, with Leonard grabbing the rebound on the missed second shot. Siakam was fouled again, and capped it with another pair from the line. ''His confidence is very high,'' Raptors coach Nick Nurse said of Siakam. ''It just keeps inching along.'' The short-handed Warriors were without star guard Stephen Curry, who sat for the 11th straight game because of a strained left groin. Curry is expected to return Saturday at Detroit. ''Obviously we've been looking forward to getting him back but I'm proud of the way the guys have fought without him,'' Kerr said. ''Hopefully Draymond (Green) won't be too far behind him.'' Green (sprained right toe) and fellow forward Alfonzo McKinnie (sore left foot) both sat for the seventh straight game. Green hopes to be back around the end of the current road trip. Leonard connected on his first six shots and scored 13 points in the first quarter. Siakam added 10 for the Raptors, who were up by 18 points in the first and led 38-25 after one. ''They did a really good job of throwing that first punch,'' Iguodala said. Thompson scored nine points in the second and Durant added eight as Golden State cut the deficit to 67-58 at the half. Durant capped an 18-point third quarter with a 32-foot pull-up 3, the final basket in a personal 13-point streak.
