Kawhi Leonard (rest) back in the Raptors' lineup on Tuesday

With Giannis Antetokounmpo sidelined because of injury, Ersan Ilyasova scored a season-high 19 points to help the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Toronto Raptors 124-109 on Monday night in a showdown of the NBA's last two undefeated teams.

"The ball is popping around and, all of a sudden, boom, he comes out of there with it in any variety of ways. Post feeds, cross-court passes, pocket passes".

Brett Brown, the 76ers coach, explained what led to his team's third-quarter surge.

These are early days still, but the Raptors continue to send a message to other Eastern Conference contenders: With Kawhi Leonard in the lineup you are going to have to play awfully well to top Toronto.

"But mostly, I think it's just his natural instinct for getting his hands on stuff ..." "It's a little bit the way Kyle does it".

John Wall scored 22 points and Bradley Beal added 17 for the Wizards, who dropped the final four games of their five-game road trip. "They feed off that a little bit".

Nurse addressed the decision to sit Leonard in the first half of the back-to-back and described it as a long-term process for a player who the Raptors want to keep fresh when it matters.

But Simmons' tally of 11 turnovers - including seven in the first half - was four more than he had previously given up in any single game.

Embiid drained a three with 3:30 to play that pulled the Sixers to within six points. After a timeout, Toronto responded with a 7-0 run that was capped by a three from Leonard with 1:56 left.

The Raptors had 13 steals on the night, forcing 23 Philly turnovers. Nurse said when Leonard's defensive versatility was brought up after the game. "They wanted the bigs to score and not the guards and they did a good job of that. I think it was a very scrappy night defensively and those guys played unbelievable". "It's borderline impossible to win when you have that many".

Toronto was without Kawhi Leonard against the Bucks, as the two-time All-Star missed his second game of the young season due to rest.

Now listening to Bayless' rant he said Leonard "quit" on the Spurs but that might be a bit of an exaggeration and Shannon Sharpe calls out his argument saying that San Antonio would take Kawhi back if they could.

I'm going to focus on those changes, and how they are helping the Raptors to their lofty 7-1 mark. It's a long-term type of thing.

Leonard did not speak to reporters after the game because he was lifting weights.

Leonard went off to get treatment on his eye after taking a hit during the game.
