The Toronto Raptors may be in first place in the Eastern Conference with the best record in the NBA, but Kawhi Leonard doesn't believe his new team has reached its peak just yet.

Leonard praised his teammate Kyle Lowry for his phenomenal play thus far and also said the Raptors haven't reached their ceiling. 

What could possibly be the team's ceiling if they've only lost one game in 12 tries?

Unless Leonard is talking about his inability to play back-to-backs, the All-Star getting better is going to be hard. He's averaging a career-high 26 points per game and eight rebounds through this young season.

It's no wonder why this team has some solid odds to win it all. 

If the Raptors continue to get better, they have a real chance to win the East, and anything can happen once you're in the NBA Finals.
