Kawhi Leonard shows his versatility in coast-to-coast one-man fast break

The San Antonio Spurs are hellbent on taking a 3-2 lead in this series against the Houston Rockets, and even more so on their home court.

Led by their two-way superstar, Kawhi Leonard, who wasn’t shy about taking the bulk of the work at both ends of the floor.

The back-to-back Defensive Player of the Year showed just why he’s been such a dominant force on that end of the floor, erasing a sure-fire, point-blank layup by center Clint Capela, only to take it coast-to-coast and finish with a gorgeous off-handed up-and-under to delight the crowd at the AT&T Center.

Sweet Christmas!

If that wasn’t enough, Leonard almost baptized Patrick Beverley in this play, coming only an inch from slamming it home along with Beverley’s pride.

The Klaw was an all-around beast on the court, tallying 22 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two blocks — giving Gregg Popovich‘s team the spark they needed to pull off this pivotal result.
