Nov. 6: No Kawhi, No Problem
November 06 2018

Donnovan Bennett and JD Bunkis discuss how the Raptors can't seem to stop winning, with or without Kawhi Leonard, and how the team has been overly cautious with their superstar's health. They discuss how the rest of the team sans Kawhi has been gelling nicely, and that even though Serge Ibaka is playing like a man reborn, Pascal Siakam is somehow flying under the radar. Donnovan and JD also chat about the Lakers' rocky start, the roster construction of LA vs. Toronto, and do another quick segment of Love/Hate.
