Preseason Game No. 2 didn't go quite as well as Preseason Game No. 1 for the Toronto Raptors.
After defeating the Portland Trail Blazers by 18 points in Vancouver on Saturday, the Raptors lost to the Utah Jazz by 15 points on Tuesday.
On the bright side, Kawhi Leonard looked terrific in this one, scoring 17 points in his 18 minutes on the court. Jonas Valanciunas also came to play for the Raptors, following his 17 point performance against the Trail Blazers over the weekend with a team-high 18 points against the Jazz.

10:19 p.m. - The clearest sign that Kawhi Leonard is still working off some rust? He's now 10-for-19 (52.6 percent) from the free throw line in preseason. Kawhi's a 84.6 percent shooter from there in his career, so you can expect that number to improve as he settles in.

9:55 p.m. - Kawhi Leonard looks great. He has 12 points on 5-for-9 shooting in 12 minutes of action.
Kawhi's last basket came off of a pick-and-pop with Serge Ibaka, which is going to be hard for even the best defenses in the league to stop when the two have it going like they do tonight:

The Toronto Raptors have outscored the Utah Jazz by six with him on the court.
9:49 p.m. - We talked about it after the first preseason game, but expect Pascal Siakam to push the pace off of misses more often this season, like this:

Keep in mind that Kawhi was limited in the nine games he played in 2017-18, so the lower grades there aren't a huge surprise. The career grades are the ones to focus on.
That's the Kawhi Leonard who can take the Raptors to a new level this season.
7:47 p.m. - OG Anunoby will not play in this one due to personal reasons, per The Athletic's Blake Murphy.
7:30 p.m. - The Toronto Raptors will be starting Kyle Lowry, Kyle Collinsworth, Kawhi Leonard, CJ Miles and Jonas Valanciunas tonight.
