Kawhi Leonard is back on the court after missing the first 27 games of the season.

Leonard has appeared in five games and scored a season-high 21 points in a season-high 26 minutes Tuesday against the Nets.

4. LINEUP SWAP?

Doug McDermott got the start last night at small forward over Lance Thomas.
