Kawhi Leonard was a question mark coming into this season, after being traded by San Antonio Spurs. He slowly got back into gear and re-established himself as a top 5 player in the league.

With playoffs here and the Raptors having a terrible history in them, Kawhi has single handedly decided to change it for the Raptors, and has been a monster.

He has been duelling with Kevin Durant for the title of best player in the playoffs and has put his best foot forward in both the series.

He is currently averaging a mammoth 34.6 points in this series, along with 9.8 rebounds and has shot an efficient 58.3% from the field.

With Kawhi enjoying such form, the Raptors need to rally around him in order to beat Philadelphia to move to their first conference finals since 2015-16.
