In the opening minute of GM6, Kawhi Leonard got the ball, did a spin move on Kevin Durant, avoided Russell Westbrook with a dribble and then posterized Serge Ibaka for the Spurs first points of a classic OT thriller. During the game, Leonard racked up 15 more points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 4 assists. In the final minute of overtime, Leonard came up with a big clutch block on Westbrook to help seal the victory with an exclamation point.
Leonard might not be a future hall of famer, a MVP, All-NBA or even All-Star like many other players in this game but the former All-Rookie 1st Team player just might be the most underrated player in the league.
