Video: Bucks fans chant ‘L.A.’s calling’ to Kawhi Leonard at the free throw line
With the Bucks leading by double digits in the final minute of the third quarter, the home fans thought it was the best time to troll Leonard and the Raptors. As Kawhi takes a free throw, Milwaukee supports insider Fiserv Forum chanted ‘LA’s calling’ — in reference to Leonard’s California roots and rumors about his potential move back to Los Angeles.

Although the chants didn’t affect Leonard — who eventually banked the two ensuing freebies — the Bucks still had the last laugh after coming out with a 125-103 victory.
Leonard led all scorers in the game with 31 points, but his efforts were not enough to give the Raptors one win on the Road. Toronto now drops 0-2 against the Bucks, though they have a chance to cut the deficit and potentially tie the series when they head home to Scotiabank Arena.
The Raptors are facing plenty of uncertainties in the offseason, especially with Leonard set to become a free agent. With that said, the best way to convince Leonard to stay is by reaching the NBA Finals and actually competing for the title.
If the Raptors fail, everyone knows that Kawhi and his camp will surely answer the phone when LA comes calling.
