Kawhi Leonard’s Game Winner Lifts Spurs


Visual evidence indicates Kawhi Leonard lifted his pivot foot ever so slightly when backing down Paul George to nail the game-winning bucket Wednesday in the San Antonio Spurs’ 100-99 triumph over the Indiana Pacers.

Even Pacers coach Nate McMillan “thought he traveled before he took that shot.” Regardless, where Leonard heads now is into San Antonio’s history books. He joined an exclusive club with a 31-point effort against Indiana, making him the fourth player in franchise history to produce 20 games with 30-plus points in one season, joining George Gervin (7), David Robinson (4) and Tim Duncan (1).
