Kawhi Leonard’s 41 points weren’t enough to tie the series Tuesday.

After the Dallas Mavericks’ 127-121 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, the Mavs now take a 2-0 series lead in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

With the Clippers two games away from elimination, Toronto Raptors fans are now speaking out about Kawhi and what could have been if “he stay”.

There have also been discussions circulating that Kawhi carried the Raptors to the championship, but with the Clippers trailing the Mavericks in this series, fans are debunking this notion.

Following the Raptors’ 2019 championship run, Leonard signed a three-year contract with the Clippers, which included a player option in the final year. Despite having seven-time All-Star Paul George by his side, the Clippers have yet to win a 'chip.

Last season, the Clippers finished second to the Lakers in the Western Conference at the end of the regular season. They defeated the Mavericks 4-2 in the first round but were knocked out in the second round by the Denver Nuggets.

The series resumes Friday, where the Clippers will have a chance to cut the series deficit in half.
