Kawhi Leonard played in Wednesday’s loss to the Raptors despite being questionable due to his mysterious cheesesteak illness, and finished with just nine points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one trey in 27 minutes.
First things first — it’s awesome that this was a terrible performance for one of Hoop Ball’s favorite players — Danny Green would kill for this line right now. Leonard’s illness must have carried over to his teammates because Tim Duncan (eight points, two boards, 20 minutes) and Tony Parker (four points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals) were ineffective as well. With the Lakers in town on Friday they should all bounce back but they could be in for an early exit due to the predicted blowout.
