Raptors star Kawhi Leonard out vs. Lakers with left foot soreness

Raptors star Kawhi Leonard out vs. Lakers with left foot soreness

If Toronto Raptors power forward Kawhi Leonard plays Sunday night in Los Angeles against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, don't expect him to play Monday night in Utah. But it isn't enough as the Lakers fall 121-107.

Magic Johnson has said that he won't be making a head coaching change, as Luke Walton will remain on the bench for the regular season. You don't put too much into it.

The Lakers have the 23rd ranked defense in the league, allowing 111.6 points per 100 possessions, but when you combine that with their fast pace (106.2 possessions per game, third in the league, via NBA.com) you end up in a situation where the Lakers have given up at least 110 points in every game.

In the locker room, Bron told reporters it felt like the team got "hit in the mouth" and they didn't have a response. "We got to get better". "But you never let the outside noise get to you and if you do that, that can cause you problems". "Just as bad as you can play for a month you're going to round out a great month or two".

On the back of 24 points from Kyle Kuzma, the Lakers narrowed Toronto's advantage after the nightmare start.

Crude oil is doing something it hasn't done in years
Front-month Brent crude oil futures were at $77,18 a barrel at 0518 GMT, down 16 cents, or 0,2 percent, from their last close. US sanctions on Iranian crude oil exports would take effect on November 4, prompting more countries to cut imports from Iran.

Which brings us to the second part of this blowout: The Lakers' defense is bad.

Every day in the National Basketball Association there is a lot to unpack, so every weekday morning throughout the season we will give you the three things you need to know from the last 24 hours in the National Basketball Association.

"There are a lot of things we could have done better", James said. VanVleet and Anunoby, who have missed a combined seven games already this season, both started to find a groove offensively: their 17 points each were season highs.

This and that: Serge Ibaka got into foul trouble early but that didn't stop his recent offensive surge: despite a season-low 13:46 minutes, he shot 100 per cent from the field.

The Lakers are back in action at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday.
