Kawhi Leonard hit a career-high seven three-pointers and scored 27 points to lead the Sprrs over the Memphis Grizzlies, 103-83. The Spurs are making winning look easier than everybody but the Golden State Warriors. (The 20-0 Warriors are taking literally the old adage “winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.) San Antonio 16-4 mark (10-0 at home), achieved while adapting to big new personnel moves, would be the talk of the league were it not for Steph Curry and the unstoppable Golden State show.
That goes double for Kawhi Leonard, who’d also be the talk of the NBA if it weren’t for Curry’s astonishing winning/scoring blitz. Leonard is averaging 22 ppg and shooting better than 50 percent from three-points and the field. This from last year’s NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
