Leonard hits winner, Raptors beat Trail Blazers 119-117
Kawhi Leonard scored the go-ahead basket with three seconds remaining and the Toronto Raptors held on to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 119-117 on Friday night. Leonard scored 38 points and Kyle Lowry had 19 points and 10 assists as the Raptors won for the ninth time in 10 games. Marc Gasol scored 19 points and Pascal Siakam had 16 for Toronto, which has won four straight home meetings with Portland and seven of the past eight overall. C.J. McCollum scored 35 points and matched a career best by making seven 3-pointers, but it wasn't enough to extend Portland's five-game winning streak.
reportedly to join on the Lakers.

I can’t tell whether LeBron said, “We’ll be in touch,” “Keep in touch,” “I’ll be in touch” or something else entirely. It’s a noisy arena, and the microphone isn’t directly on the conversation.
Even if LeBron were talking about being in touch, it’s not necessarily about Leonard joining the Lakers. LeBron and Leonard havein the offseason before. It could be about doing that again or even something unrelated to basketball.
But the Lakersthis summer, and Leonard will be a free agent. ????
