Kawhi Leonard hit 11-of-15 shots for 31 points, one rebound, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Wolves.

It's not a season high in points for Kawhi, but it's close. He scored 34 points way back on Nov. 9, and hadn't scored more than 23 points in his previous six games. Leonard didn't exactly crush the stat sheet like he's capable of doing, but he did fill it. He hasn't had a night off yet this season, so it's time to start watching for news that Gregg Popovich will sit him for a game. But if you drafted Leonard and have been disappointed with his output, tonight was a nice step in the right direction.

The Spurs bounced back from a disappointing loss to the Magic, beating the Mavericks on Wednesday 94-87 thanks to Kawhi Leonard's 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Leonard shot just 5-of-16 from the field but he made 9-of-12 free throws in 31 minutes, helping the Spurs maintain their undefeated record on the road. They are a perfect 11-0 on the road this season, but just 4-4 at home. Kawhi has yet to miss a game this season, which has helped him maintain top-six fantasy value in nearly all formats on a cumulative basis.

Kawhi Leonard made 5-of-14 from the field for 19 points during a 112-100 win over the Wizards on Saturday, adding one rebound, five assists, three steals, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

He didn't have a great offensive game and he has seen his efficiency slightly dip at just 44.1 percent from the field in his previous 10 games. Leonard also only had one foul to go with his three steals and he remains the only active NBA player with more career steals than career fouls -- only 10 players ever have done this. The Spurs have quietly won nine games in a row and are a franchise-best 10-0 on the road to start a season. Leonard is an MVP candidate.
Nov 26 - 10:12 PM

Kawhi Leonard got hot late on Friday during a 109-103 win over the Celtics, scoring 25 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He scored nine points in his nine fourth-quarter minutes to get the comeback win. Interestingly, Kawhi's usage rate is 35.5 in the fourth quarter this season, which is by far his highest of any quarter. The Spurs are now the only team in the NBA with an undefeated home record with their 9-0 start as their best road start in franchise history. Leonard is in the thick of the MVP race with top-five value in standard leagues.
Nov 25 - 4:38 PM

Kawhi Leonard powered the Spurs to another road win on Wednesday with a game-high 30 points on 14-of-21 shooting, adding five boards, four assists, one steal and one block.

Kawhi also made two 3-pointers and he committed zero turnovers in 37 minutes. The Spurs have won seven straight games and they've yet to lose on the road this season. Kawhi's unbelievable two-way play is the driving reason for their success, and he's quickly emerged as a serious MVP candidate.
Nov 23 - 10:23 PM

Kawhi Leonard scored 24 points in a 96-91 win over the Mavericks on Monday.

The game was a little too close for comfort and coach Gregg Popovich wasn't exactly thrilled after the game. The Spurs still finished strong with Leonard leading the way, as he shot 8-of-19 from the field with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and one triple in 34 minutes. The Spurs have won six straight games and Leonard is averaging 35.6 minutes over his last five games, so he's due for a maintenance day soon. For what it's worth, the Spurs have a back-to-back set coming up on Friday vs. the Celtics and Saturday vs. the Wizards, and both games are on the road.
Nov 21 - 11:46 PM

Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs to a 116-107 win over the Lakers with a 23-point, 12-rebound double-double.

After a tough start to November, the Spurs have won five straight games and Leonard has scored 20 or more points in his last four. He dished out a season-high seven assists in the win with two steals and two triples, shooting 7-of-15 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line in 39 minutes. He's been the fourth best player in standard leagues and only an injury or Gregg Popovich's famous maintenance days can slow him down.
Nov 19 - 1:46 AM

Kawhi Leonard, who posted a disappointing line on Saturday, hit 7-of-19 shots, three 3-pointers and 7-of-9 free throws for 24 points, 12 rebounds and four assists in Monday's 94-90 win over the Heat.

He didn't have a steal or block, and his shooting wasn't a thing of beauty, but Leonard is still going to have a monster season. He's just not on the same level as guys like James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Anthony Davis and Giannis Antetokounmpo, mainly because he plays for the Spurs and Gregg Popovich.
Nov 15 - 12:10 AM

Kawhi Leonard hit 9-of-16 shots, but was 0-for-5 from downtown, for 20 points, two rebounds, zero assists, three steals and zero blocks in Saturday's win over the Rockets.

Leonard scored just 17 points on 5-of-18 shooting on Friday, and he's in a slump. Additionally, he hasn't yet been rested by Gregg Popovich, so it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him get a surprise benching in the near future. Keep rolling Kawhi out there, but keep in mind that he plays for the league's most conservative coach when you think about using him in DFS leagues. He's scored 20 or fewer points in three of his last four games.
Nov 13 - 1:26 AM

Kawhi Leonard had a rough night against the Clippers during a 116-92 loss on Saturday, scoring 14 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

Well, it was only a matter of time before he had a bad game. Before this dud, Leonard had a 65.7 true shooting percentage and a 34.2 usage, which is MVP-caliber offense to go with his lock-down defense. He's a monster and he'll be better next time.
Nov 6 - 12:26 AM

Kawhi Leonard was phenomenal in Friday's 100-86 win over the Jazz, scoring 29 points with 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one triple in 32 minutes.

He's playing some unreal basketball right now and hit 9-of-18 FGs and a perfect 10-of-10 from the line with one turnover. Leonard is the third best player in standard leagues with averages of 28.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.7 steals and 1.7 treys. The only thing his owners have to worry about is the possibility of some random maintenance days.
Nov 5 - 12:01 AM

Kawhi Leonard hit 10-of-18 shots and five 3-pointers for 30 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals, and even knocked down all five of his free throws in Tuesday's loss to the Jazz.

This dude is a freak and for a guy with hands that big to be able to hit five 3-pointers is pretty remarkable. He's scored at least 30 in three of his five games, and has topped 20 in all five. Owners just have to hope that a day off for rest isn't in Gregg Popovich's plans, but it wouldn't be at all surprising if it happens soon.
Nov 2 - 12:04 AM

Kawhi Leonard powered the Spurs to another win on Sunday with 27 points, six assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

Leonard did his damage in just 30 minutes, going 8-of-16 from the field and 10-of-12 from the FT line, and he's been unbelievably good during the Spurs' 4-0 start. Gregg Popovich summed it up with some rare effusive praise earlier this week. "The things [Leonard] does simply amaze me," Pop said. "He's ridiculous."
Oct 30 - 9:07 PM

Kawhi Leonard is the first player with at least 30 points and five steals in each of his first two games of a season.

Per the Elias Sports Bureau: Over the last 25 years, only two other players had back-to-back games with at least 30 points and five steals at any point in any season: Allen Iverson in February 2002 and Eddie Jones in December 2002. Leonard has been absolutely unstoppable on both ends of the floor to start the season.
