San Antonio is getting nothing from Danny Green (1-of-9) and little from Tony Parker (3-of-10) in Game 7, but thanks to Tim Duncan (17 points) and Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs refuse to go away. Leonard, the 2nd year player from San Diego State, has had an explosive series, and his star is on the rise in the NBA.
Defensively through six games, he’s been effective on LeBron, but he also pursues rebounds like dogs chase cars – he’s got 11 rebounds near the end of the 3rd quarter tonight, and five double-figure rebound games in the series. Leonard’s also got 14 points, none better than this can’t-see-the-basket bank job.
San Antonio leads, 65-64.
