Cavs agree with Nance on 4-year extension

Kawhi Leonard, Toronto's prized off-season acquisition, had 24 points and 12 rebounds in his first real game as a Raptor, while Kyle Lowry had 27 points and eight assists, and Toronto beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 116-104 on Wednesday.

Pluto says having Nance Jr. signed to the contract extension will really help a team that is starting fresh without superstar LeBron James. Having our first game, having our best player with his first game back, I thought we did some good things. Nick Nurse could have taken him out, had a conversation about maybe letting the game come to him a bit more, pointed out a thing or two he could have done differently.

Tristan Thompson also believes any team underestimating the Cavs will be making a mistake.

In his first game as Toronto's head coach, Nurse's rotation proved to be just as interesting as it is fluid.

Leonard, OG Anunoby, Green, Serge Ibaka and Lowry are the likely starters for the Raptors.

"It's one game", Leonard said.

Federer won the Australian Open at the start of this year but has had a mediocre season by his sky-high standards. Djokovic is targeting his 72nd career title here on Sunday.

"I can only see what's in front of me right now and there's nothing I'm looking back, saying I want to get back to that level. That's what my focus is". After a barrage of three-pointers, the lead ballooned up to 20. Three straight baskets by Jordan Clarkson pulled the Cavs within nine points. But the Cavs will have plenty of opportunities to give to their younger players.

TORONTO - Kevin Love was the last player to get out of the shower following the Cleveland Cavaliers' Opening Night loss against the Toronto Raptors.

"It's still early", Leonard said. "So we'll be prepared for a track meet, as well as managing the game very well from my end, as well as Terry (Rozier)'s".

We project Nance as the 78th best fantasy asset this year, and-if you haven't drafted-you can generally get him several rounds after that. And perhaps most impressively won the game despite a 19 shot difference at the free-throw line.

As for whether this is a hard stretch, Rozier said, "I feel like every week is. He just said that and has a amusing way of bringing people in and making them more comfortable".

The Raptors were 4-1 in exhibition games.
