Game one will be at home Thursday night against the Golden State Warriors.

Fantasy Impact:

A game after setting his career-high of nine assists, Kawhi Leonard grabbed a personal playoff high 17 rebounds to help the Raptors advance. Leonard is averaging 31.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists this playoffs. Kawhi has been the superstar impact player the Raptors needed to get over the hump and is a total game-changer on both ends up the court. He will need to continue to play at this high level against a star-studded Warriors lineup. The extra rest for Kawhi will help him rejuvenate for the championship series.
