Bruce Arthur: Raptors bring Claw and order with blowout win over Sixers in Game 5

Bruce Arthur: Raptors bring Claw and order with blowout win over Sixers in Game 5 “He has to come down eventually, doesn’t he?” That was the whisper in the halls before the game, from all sides. In Game 4, Kawhi Leonard bailed the Raptors out. The Philadelphia 76ers did, too. Every time Toronto needed to make a shot it felt like Kawhi created one, up to the big one at the end. And every time Philly needed a shot, it felt like they missed. Game 4 was an escape from a 3-1 deficit, balanced on impossibly broad shoulders. Imagine the potential consequences had the Raptors lost. Instead, Toronto had a chance to push the Sixers to the edge of elimination, and in Game 5 they looked like a weight had been lifted. Leonard was finally human, yes. It was jarring.

If Kawhi Leonard is ailing then the Toronto Raptors might be the world's best poker players.

Leonard gutted out the Raptors' blowout win over the Milwaukee Bucks to even the Eastern Conference final at two games apiece and at times appeared both hobbled and tired. With his supporting cast picking up the slack, the superstar scored 19 points on 6-of-13 shooting in only 34 minutes of action. This came just two days after he landed awkwardly on his leg early in Game 3 and looked uncomfortable throughout the contest.

But Raptors head coach Nick Nurse was quick to calm any fears that Leonard is dealing with a serious injury.

Anyone who thinks that Kawhi Leonard will stay with the Toronto Raptors this summer because of that mind-blowing, buzzer-beating, game-winning jumper at the end of Game 7 on Sunday doesn’t really understand that Kawhi Leonard doesn’t follow the plot all that well.

"We were concerned. (But) I think he's fine," Nurse told reporters, per Yahoo Sports Canada. "He logged a lot of minutes, he's certainly tired, like a lot of guys in this series are. ... He looks OK to me.

"I think there's a number of guys out there that aren't 100 percent, on both sides of the ball. But again, he's got tremendous will, he's got tremendous desire ... there was one time I was trying to give him an extended rest there and he didn't really want it, so he must be OK."

Leonard also did his best to dispel any unrest in the North before the series shifts back to Milwaukee.

"I feel good," he said, according to TSN's Josh Lewenberg. "I'll keep going and keep fighting. We have a chance to make history."
