On Monday night, the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth straight with a 93 to 80 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. It also marked the return of Kawhi Leonard. Leonard came back from an upper respiratory infection that sidelined him during their previous game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Leonard Monday night though looked like he was as healthy as can be. During the third quarter, Danny Green was leading on a fast break when streaking down the middle he found Leonard. This is what happened:
Mason Plumee was put on a poster courtesy of Leonard. Watching when this dunk happened as well as the replay, it was just effortless by Leonard. He made it look so easy. He is growing into one of the leagues finest players. At such a young age, he is only going to get better.
Through 10 games, Leonard is averaging 21.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.3 blocks per game.
