Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard of San Antonio was the leading vote-getter for the NBA’s All-Defensive first team, where he was joined by Los Angeles Clippers teammates Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan.
Injuries limited Leonard to just 64 games this season. But he still managed to make an enormous impact, especially on the defensive end of the floor.
Monta Ellis matched his season high with 38 points and the Dallas Mavericks rallied in the second half to defeat the San Antonio Spurs 101-94 on Tuesday night.
Kawhi Leonard could have been devastated by losing last season’s NBA Finals. Instead, he vowed to get better. And just think — the San Antonio star is only getting started.
Kawhi Leonard scored 20 points, Tim Duncan set playoff records, and the Spurs controlled play on the way to a 107-86 win over the Heat in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
Kawhi Leonard scored a career-high 29 points as the San Antonio Spurs made a finals-record 75.8 percent of their shots in the first half in a 111-92 victory over the Miami Heat.
Tim Duncan scored 27 points, and the San Antonio Spurs held the Dallas Mavericks to one field goal in the final seven minutes to rally for a 90-85 victory Sunday in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series.
Hours away from drawing the toughest defensive assignment of his two-year career with the San Antonio Spurs, Kawhi Leonard wasn’t feverishly taking mental notes of how to guard LeBron James.
Kawhi Leonard is soft-spoken, selfless, takes direction well and shuns the spotlight. All of which makes him a perfect fit for the low-key San Antonio Spurs.
