"I haven't come up with the word for it yet", Nance told the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Monday. "I'm happy we came out and got a win. So it's a win-win for me". Canadian Tristan Thompson grabbed a team-high 13 rebounds. One year later the two clutched in glee during the final buzzer of a thrilling Game 7 of the NBA Finals in Oakland - where Love played a pivotal role.

Leonard, OG Anunoby, Green, Serge Ibaka and Lowry are the likely starters for the Raptors.

How close is he back to peak form? "That's what my focus is".

Lowry and Leonard each scored nine points in the third, with Lowry making three from long range, as Toronto took a 90-75 lead into the fourth.

Here are three things to watch for during the 2018-19 season. The Cavs were trying to fight back from a 20-point deficit.

Rozier didn't want to get too deeply into whether the Raptors have improved with Leonard.

"It's still early", Leonard said. We had a lot of mistakes on the defensive end that we can correct. Our offence was also stagnant at some times tonight.

As for whether this is a hard stretch, Rozier said, "I feel like every week is".

Even if a newly minted five-man-unit fails, it's important to let them have the opportunity to figure things out and show that they either can or can't over a decent sample size. "Tonight wasn't an indication of that, but we'll get better". After using it to gain some separation from Cedi Osman, he had the opportunity to rise up for a mid-range jumper that would have been a poetic beginning to the post-DeMar DeRozan era, but instead, didn't trust that he created enough room or the lift he'd have if he raised up and passed the ball out to Danny Green to reset.

"It's feeling great", Nance said.

"So, you just need to play basketball, you know what I mean?"

"It would take a huge step in a positive direction there, so I think that's success as well", he says, adding that sheer hustle will have to make up the slack from losing James this season and All-Star Irving to the Celtics in 2017.

With teams required to meet a minimum baseline of spending to to the NBA's salary floor of $98.61 million - 90 percent of the cap - you've got to put your money somewhere. "I'd like to keep it a little fluid, only because I think this is a super versatile team and I'd like to keep us in a versatile mindset, especially starting out here".

Nurse summed up his first victory as "pretty cool".

In Houston, where Anthony linked up with pals Chris Paul and James Harden to offer yet another offensive option (albeit a redundant one) to the Rockets, it was not a smooth start. The Raptors said Anunoby suffered a right orbital contusion. Delon Wright (strained groin) didn't dress. The Raptors went into the halftime break up 60-47. He played in 42 games (17 starts) for the Lakers, averaging 8.6 points on.601 shooting, 6.8 rebounds and 1.40 steals in 22.0 minutes per game.
