All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard commented his series-winner against the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 7.

Per The Athletic, “Pretty much I’m a guy that acts like I’ve been there before. So probably the last time you’ve seen me scream was when we won (the championship with the Spurs). So whenever it’s like a moment where I haven’t really experienced, I’ll probably try to give some emotion, show some emotion, and let it just come out. So tonight was one of those nights. I’ve never been in that situation before — like you said, it’s the first (time) somebody hit a (buzzer-beating) game-winner in a Game 7, so I just showed emotion,” said Leonard.

 

 

“I knew I had some time to try to get some space rather than just catch and shoot the ball. But I ended up catching it and just trying to get to a space so I could get a shot off. Embiid was guarding me. He’s taller, longer than me. So (I) ended up finding a spot that I like, that I work on, ended up getting to the spot. Then I just knew I had to shoot it high.”
