NBA Playoffs 2019: Kawhi Leonard sets Toronto Raptors playoff record with sixth 35-point game

This is Kawhi Leonard's first playoff run with the Toronto Raptors, but he's already setting franchise records.

In leading the Raptors to a double-overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals with 36 points, Leonard has scored 35 or more points six times in these playoffs.

That gives him the most 35-point games in the team's playoff history.

According to Basketball Reference, Kyle Lowry previously held the record with five 35-point games. Following him: Vince Carter and DeMar DeRozan with three each.

Other than them, Chris Bosh is the only player who has scored 35 points in a playoff game as a member of the Raptors.
