B+. Kawhi Leonard was another starter that had a great game on Sunday night against the Timberwolves. The former first-round pick did okay shooting the ball, 6-of-13 for 15 points, but it was his defensive effort that really stood out. Leonard had his hands all over the place, grabbing six rebounds and picking up an incredible five steals. He also did a great job shutting down first-overall pick <strong><a href=. SF.
