“It was a backbreaker.”
That is how Kevin Durant described this offensive rebound by Kawhi Leonard, a play which sealed the game for the Spurs (along with some free throws down the stretch). The Thunder were down two but scrambling on defense, LaMarcus Aldridge took the jumper but missed — and there was Leonard. He put a body on and shielded the taller Serge Ibaka from the ball, then outleaped Andre Roberson and got the ball.
Leonard was the best player on the court Friday night, scoring 31 points and pulling down 11 rebounds. One of which sealed the win.
