Video: Spurs' Kawhi Leonard breaks ankles of Clippers' J.J. Redick
This fake bamboozled Redick so badly that he fell to the court as if his legs were made from jelly.
With a little under seven minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and San Antonio leading 86-78, Leonard received the ball near the top of the circle and attacked the paint going left. Redick shadowed him closely, causing Leonard to fake as if he were going to spin back towards the lane for a turnaround jumper.
Halfway through the move, Leonard stopped and rotated back the other way. The only problem? Redick kept going, straight to the court. Now that he had created a clean look, Leonard calmly sank his mid-range jumper to complete the highlight. Pretty stuff.
Leonard finished with 23 points, nine rebounds and three assists. Tim Duncan led the Spurs with a team-high 28 points and 11 rebounds.
The Clippers and the Spurs are now tied at one game in their first-round series. Game 3 is set for Friday in San Antonio.
