So, if you want more confirmation for the conference finals…
Kawhi Leonard has been cleared to play in Game 1 of the Spurs’ Western Conference Finals series against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland on Sunday.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Leonard “absolutely” fully participated in Saturday’s practice in San Antonio.
San Antonio finished off Houston without Leonard, but that was a sample of one game, and Golden State if far superior to the Rockets. The Spurs will need Leonard’s two-way brilliance against the Warriors.
The Warriors are favored in this series regardless, but a healthy Leonard gives the Spurs a little more of a chance.
