KAWHI LEONARD. B+. Kawhi Leonard once again showed why he’s one of the league’s rising stars on Sunday night, this time making the Phoenix Suns his victim. The 2014 Finals MVP reminded us of why he was deserving of that award with his 18 point, nine rebound contribution. Leonard also showed some nice aggression in the game, getting to the line five times and making all attempts. The former first-round pick has scored in double-digits all but twice since the All-Star break and it’s a big reason the Spurs are where they are at now.. SF. San Antonio Spurs

Tim Duncan showed us once more how much he wants that sixth title with his effort against Phoenix. “The Big Fundamental,” set the tone early on his way to 22 points and 10 rebounds in just 26 minutes. Duncan did a great job forcing turnovers as well, picking up two steals and two blocks. Let’s also talk about the fact that he is now 14th all-time in career scoring.. PF. San Antonio Spurs. TIM DUNCAN. A+

. . SAN ANTONIO SPURS BENCH. A. The San Antonio Spurs bench did not really come up with the scoring punch we have seen in games previous, however, they were efficient enough to earn them an “A.” Efficiency really sums up the bench effort as the reserves who played more than 15 minutes combined for 39 points on 12-of-21 shooting. <strong><a rel=
