Leonard scores 22 points as Raptors rout Hornets 127-106

TORONTO (AP) A tough Toronto Raptors defense took the sting out of Charlotte's 3-point shooting.

Kawhi Leonard scored 22 points, Kyle Lowry had 16 points and a season-high 14 assists, and Toronto never trailed in a 127-106 victory over the Hornets on Monday night, the Raptors' fourth straight win to open the season.

"It was a high-scoring, free-shooting team coming in here," Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. "We asked them to get out and contest and disrupt some of their rhythm stuff and we did a pretty good job of that."
