A second night of preseason basketball is in the books.

What started with Kawhi Leonard making his Toronto Raptors debut in front of a sellout crowd in Vancouver ended with the Utah Jazz blowing out the Perth Wildcats in the night's finale.

Sprinkled in between was Luka Doncic carrying the Dallas Mavericks to a commanding victory over the Beijing Ducks and the Minnesota Timberwolves defeating the Golden State Warriors by a slim margin at Oracle Arena.
