Want to compare Kawhi Leonard to Michael Jordan?

The combination of elite offense and elite defense is the place to start. But don’t forget about the superstar calls.

Leonard got another in the Spurs’ 101-98 overtime win over the Pelicans on Friday, according to the NBA’s Last Two Minute Report.

The San Antonio forward drew a Solomon Hill shooting foul with 51 seconds left in the fourth quarter — in error, per the league:

Hill (NOP) maintains legal guarding position and makes incidental contact with Leonard (SAS) that does not affect his drive to the basket and shot attempt.

Leonard made one free throw — obviously crucial to the game reaching overtime, where the Spurs prevailed.
