Kawhi Leonard Goes Beast Mode In Exciting Finish Against Rockets
Kawhi Leonard is widely regarded as one of the premier talents that the league currently has to offer, but it seems to me that in many circles he doesn’t get his just due in discussion surrounding the other elite forces in the NBA. Leonard may not be the flashiest of superstars, but when the game is on the line, whether it be at the offensive or defensive end, you can depend on number 2 for the San Antonio Spurs to come through.
This was exemplified last night when the Spurs went toe to toe with the sharp-shooting Houston Rockets, in what was a very compelling match-up. Leonard went up against fellow MVP candidate James Harden and was able to secure a win for San Antonio not only with a go-ahead three pointer, but capping it off with a ferocious block on the “The Beard" himself.
Take a look:
It was unreal. Kawhi finished the game with 39 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks and a steal, adding to his own case for league MVP. With what the Spurs are doing as the current 2nd seed in the Western Conference and he dominant play of Leonard, it is definitely time we start to acknowledge the special two-way talent that is Kawhi Leonard.
Is he the real MVP?
