Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard still found time to troll a reporter even after getting blown out 125-103 in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Leonard, who was asked where the Raptors go after being down 0-2 in the series, simply said ‘Toronto for Game 3.’
“Where do you go from here?”

It’s always a classic when Kawhi is the one having fun.
But to be honest, there might be some truth to Leonard’s response here. Games 3 and 4 of the series will be played in Toronto, and in order for the Raptors to extend their lives in the playoffs, they will need to win both games. Losing one at home could doom them in this series.
Leonard, who finished with 31 points and eight rebounds in Game 2, has been carrying much of the offensive load for Toronto in the playoffs, which reveals the team’s lack of offensive firepower. Their defense has been solid in the first two rounds, which is the main reason why they have reached the conference finals, but they can’t rely on that alone against the Bucks, who’s been dominant on both ends of the floor in the postseason.
There is no doubt that Kawhi is one of the best players in the league, but if he can’t get enough support from his teammates, the Raptors can kiss their championship hopes goodbye, as the Bucks have shown little to no weakness during their postseason run.
Yes, the Raptors will head to Toronto for Game 3, and they must figure things out.
Leonard might be joking around right now, but he means business everytime he steps on the court.
