Follow live Toronto Raptors face Orlando Magic in Game 4 Eastern Conference

Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard

He has now had two games in the series in which he has been close to unstoppable, underlining, again, why Masai Ujiri tore apart the best team the franchise had ever known to land him.

Getting the series back to Orlando will be no easy task.

"I'll tell you what I do like, these games are awesome".

Leonard's strong play has carried into the postseason, as he's averaging 28 points per contest while shooting 53.2 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from downtown during the Raptors' first-round series against the Orlando Magic.

Orlando came out of the gates with a zip in their steps.

While Orlando hasn't been able to match the Raptors - particularly when it comes to the performance of each team's star players - the Magic showed a ton of resiliency throughout the regular season and still present their challenges.

The Toronto Raptors have had their hands full with the Orlando Magic. "If you lose this one, you're back in Orlando".

Game 4 was a different story. The whistles were working. The team's defense often overshadows their offense, but Toronto's versatility and skill has been on full display this postseason. If anything he was more aggressive on Sunday.

"They are very hard to play against", he said before Game 4.

Raptors coach Nick Nurse is pleased with his team's commitment to defence the past three games. "And they are fighting for their lives", Danny Green said.

The list of players to keep up that level of scoring with that type of efficiency is a small one, a who's who of MVP and Finals MVP caliber players. There was nothing they could do to stop him.

Leonard came out aggressive with nine points in the first quarter to set the tone for the Raptors. But the play of Kawhi, the defensive clinic being put on display, Jack Armstrong saying "a little blow by!"

It's been a year to remember for second-year Magic forward Jonathan Isaac. The play resulted in a jump ball.

And for Kawhi Leonard, that somewhere is shaping up to something special. The last time I saw him, at the hospital, they said 'Let's take him for a walk, ' and that wasn't a good idea. The perception of Leonard is more in tune with a "killing 'em softly" approach, an under-stated assassin that does it efficiently on both ends without the loud histrionics.

What do you do with that? The Raptors have a chance to finally put away a weaker playoff opponent in something less than six games on Tuesday night. His 30 point and 11 rebound game was the first for Toronto since Chris Bosh.

Instead, they went into the break down by 16. An encouraging start for the Magic, only to be thwarted by the offensive fire power of Leonard and company. "I love to play the game, and being injured is no fun. you just want to be out there on the floor with your teammates, feel that team spirit, chemistry, and just trying to focus on one goal", Leonard said, his white New Balance track jacket zipped high up his neck. In Sunday night's 107-85 loss in Game 4, the Magic had 20 assists.

Clifford, though he probably doesn't mean to sound like it, has at times talked like it is something of a miracle when Orlando manages to score against the Raptors. The Magic started 6 for 6 from the field, and then missed 26 of their next 38 shots - going 1 for 13 from 3-point range during that drought. A report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski following the procedure indicated he could sit until the Eastern Conference Final, should the Raptors advance.
