Kawhi Leonard said he appreciated how the Toronto Raptors played as a team following their 125-89 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in game 5. The Raptors are now up 3-2 in the series.
Leonard finished the game with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Kyle Lowry added 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists.
"The way we played tonight -- I'd love to play like this every night. I'm pretty sure everyone else feels the same way. They all want to contribute. There are not guys on this team who just want to sit back and relax and watch either me or Kyle [Lowry] or Pascal [Siakam] just being great. Everyone wants to play great," said Leonard.
Leonard added that he was living in the moment during the Raptors playoff run.
"I'm having fun. I've been in the tough battles, played the greatest teams, been to the Finals. I'm just in a moment having fun. I think that's what you've got to do. I've got to enjoy this, enjoy this NBA. I don't want to look back and say, 'Damn. I was too stressed or too locked in to have fun and play the game I've got to play.' That's what I've learned from my past and that's what I take in every game, just going out there and having fun, but competing my ass off and leaving it all out there to try win a game."
