I touched on Pau Gasol’s disappearing act in Game one
Kawhi Leonard threw himself into the league MVP conversation on Monday night as he led his San Antonio Spurs to a 112-110 home victory over the Houston Rockets. Both he and Rocket superstar James Harden went toe to toe finishing with 39 points apiece but it was Leonard who got the last laugh, hitting the go ahead three with 25.4 seconds remaining and then backing it up with a monster block on Harden to seal the win.
A solid performance all around for Leonard who finished with six rebounds, five assists and two blocks, a steal and 11/11 from the line to go with and help make up his 39 points. If you want to see more of Kawhi’s big night, peep the below video from DawkinsMTA.
