Kawhi Leonard Leads San Antonio Spurs to Win Over Cleveland Cavaliers
The San Antonio Spurs overcame a 54-46 halftime deficit against the Cleveland Cavaliers as the Spurs won 96-95.
For the first time since January 13 the Spurs “Big Three’ played together. The Spurs went 12-1 over the stretch without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili playing sparingly.
Kawhi Leonard (pictured) hit the Spurs game-winning shot with a 3-pointer from the right corner with 2.9 seconds left in the game.
Cavs coach Byron Scott lamented the fact his team gave up a 3-pointer at the end of the game to NBA.com, “The one thing we didn’t want to give up at the end of the game was a 3-pointer. That’s the one thing we talked about in the huddle. It was just a loss of focus at that time of the game, which is unfortunate.”
Tony Parker led the Spurs with 24 points and 7 assists.
The Spurs have an NBA-best record of 42-12. They’re now off until Tuesday for the All-Star break.
