Kawhi Leonard eclipsed the 25 minute mark for the first time all year in Tuesday’s 109-97 victory, scoring a season-high 21 points on 8-of-17 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists and two triples.
Leonard didn’t pick up any defensive stats tonight but the takeaway is his expanding workload. The offense looks to be back already and he’ll ratchet up the production on both ends of the floor once he shakes off the rust. Kawhi should be back to consistent top-10 production in relatively short order.
