A Kawhi Leonard highlight? Yes and we’re here for it! It’s not every day that Los Angeles Clippers fans are treated to these things, so let’s let this one simmer.
The Clippers superstar has been one of the most low-key dominant players in the NBA for quite some time now, and on Sunday, the two-time Finals MVP punched in a massive exclamation point against the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves.
Guess we know what Kawhi’s next NBA Top Shot moment is (via Bleacher Report):

The play started in the defensive end when Paul George stole the ball from D’Angelo Russell, which led to Reggie Jackson leading the break for the Clippers. With Kawhi Leonard trailing and continuing to run to the hoop, Jackson stopped to leave Kawhi all alone in front of the basket. Jackson then timed his lob perfectly, which Leonard’s massive hands grabbed in the air and shook the entire Staples Center with a massive two-handed slam.
The Clippers are looking to bounce back after a tough loss against the Philadelphia 76ers, which snapped their seven-game win streak. Leonard is making sure that LA stays on track as they continue to climb the West standings where they’re currently third.
