Today 18:10 GMT

WATCH: ‘Time does heal…everything’: DeMar DeRozan gets ready to return to Toronto as a Spur. Leonard also got a loud reception when he was introduced before the game.

Leonard’s ensuing dunk gave Toronto a 118-117 lead and he added two free throws for a 120-117 win over DeRozan and the San Antonio Spurs in an entertaining game that had 16 lead changes. The former Raptor hero finished with 23 points and eight assists but lost the ball to Kawhi Leonard, the man he was traded for last July, with 16.9 seconds left.

Burnley’s Ashley Barnes sinks Spurs then Pochettino confronts referee

Today 18:10 GMT

The Spurs manager admitted as much himself, and is likely to face an FA charge after venting his fury at the referee at the final whistle.

Spurs did not look much like title contenders, unable to convert 70% of possession into clear threats on goal and short of inspiration when tasked with breaking down Burnley’s dogged lines of defence. Harry Kane played and scored but with limited chances the home side finished better and deservedly took the points with goals from Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes.

Burnley 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs falter on Harry Kane's return

Today 17:15 GMT

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino angrily confronted referee Mike Dean after a damaging defeat at Burnley dealt a huge blow to his side's Premier League title hopes.

Harry Kane, making his first appearance since 13 January, equalised after latching on to Danny Rose's quick throw-in and poking past Tom Heaton, before Ashley Barnes tapped in Burnley's winner late on. Chris Wood broke the deadlock for the hosts early in the second half as he rose to head home Dwight McNeil's inswinging corner - his fourth goal in as many games.
