Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs are on fire. Leonard and the rest of the San Antonio defense held Pacers All-Star Paul George to season-low seven points.
It was a physical game through-out but the Spurs found a way to win their sixth game in a row as well as keeping their undefeated record at the AT&T Center, 16-0.
The win marked San Antonio’s 21st game they have won by double-digits. Tony Parker looked young and fresh as he finished with 15 points, including nine in the final quarter. Parker was not the only one that shined for the Spurs.
As they have seen all year, each player on the roster puts their stamp on the game. Boris Diaw pitched in 14 points. Former Pacers David West was facing his old team for the first time since signing with San Antonio. He finished with seven points and five rebounds.
Pacers George had his worse game of the season thus far and that can be contributed to the defensive play of Leonard. George was held to 1-of-14 shooting.
