LOS ANGELES (AP) The centerpiece of the Toronto Raptors' championship team works at Staples Center now. Two more key components of last season's sublime roster got injured right before the Raptors arrived in Los Angeles for the reunion.

In the opening weeks of life after Kawhi, the defending champs are learning they might be deeper than even they realized.

They definitely had enough to hold off Staples' marquee tenants in a remarkable early-season win.
