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.
Only took Kawhi one postseason to set this franchise record 😂 pic.twitter.com/0ydRuNYQIk- Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) May 20, 2019
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.
Leonard is also close to DeRozan's franchise record for the most 30-point postseason games. Leonard now has 10 such games, putting him four away from tying DeRozan.
After Game 3, Leonard is averaging 32.0 points per game in these playoffs, doing so on 52.0 percent shooting from the field and 39.3 percent from the perimeter.
