Toronto beats Milwaukee 118-112 on Sunday night to cut the Bucks’ lead in the Eastern Conference finals to 2-1. Leonard scored 36 points, including eight in the second overtime. Leonard made 11 of 25 shots and went 12 for 13 at the free throw line in more than 52 minutes of action, a playoff career high.

“At the end of the game, Kawhi said he played an hour of basketball,” Siakam said. “I told him ‘My bad.’”

Leonard had nine rebounds and five assists despite appearing to be bothered by some leg discomfort. He said he would keep fighting and playing.

“I mean, it’s 52 minutes and it’s in the playoffs, so you definitely feel it. When you play 30 minutes, you feel it still,” Leonard said. “Just got to not worry about it, get my treatment and move on to the next one.”

Leonard’s previous career high in playoff minutes was 46, set with San Antonio against Miami in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on June 18, 2013. The Spurs lost that game in overtime, then lost Game 7 two days later.

Leonard entered having made 20 consecutive free throws. He made his first of the game but missed the second. Lowry holds the Raptors’ playoff record for consecutive free throws, making 25 straight in 2014. (Agencies)
