Kawhi Leonard lit up the Grizzlies again on Thursday, finishing with 29 points, nine rebounds, four assists and three steals in 40 minutes.
While Leonard only shot 1-of-5 from deep, he was 8-of-19 from the floor and 12-of-13 from the free throw line. Kawhi was simply terrific yet again and was a terror in the fourth quarter. He’s in the zone right now, and you can almost guarantee the shot is going down when he rises up. The “Kawhi as a robot” meme might be getting tired, but he’s been scary good in crunch time so far in the postseason. You can feel the tension whenever he pulls up to shoot in a road arena. Him lining up across from James Harden will be a fantastic sight in the second round.
