Kawhi Leonard Has Been Everywhere

Sure, the Spurs may go on to lose this game — after a James Harden three-pointer and Kevin Durant's apotheosis in the fourth quarter, the Thunder lead by seven points with 0:57 to play — but Kawhi Leonard has been outstanding.

Before the fourth quarter, he had played great defense on Durant, but since Durant went off, Leonard has done his best to match him. He's scored 17 points with eight rebounds and has missed just one shot, and has been the best Spurs player by far down the stretch. It's likely not enough, but it's worth a tip of the cap for a rookie who's looking more and more like the steal of the 2011 NBA Draft.
