Kawhi Leonard Rips Steph Curry For 1 of his 7 Steals Then Dunks
Kawhi Leonard had a career-night in a 15 point win against Stephen Curry and the Warriors on Sunday. The Finals MVP tied a career-high with 26 points and set a career-high with 7 steals.
“Kawhi was magnificent at both ends of the court,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “He is really playing confidently, but he hasn’t forgotten to predicate his game on defense and on the boards. It kind of fuels him offensively.”
The best steal of the night came in the 3rd quarter when he ripped Curry and threw down a breakaway dunk.
“Kawhi was phenomenal, he was the best player on the floor,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “It was Kawhi’s night.”
