It simply doesn't get much more exciting than this for basketball fans.

Kawhi Leonard delivered the latest blow by putting up a playoff career-tying 45 points to keep his team’s season alive. The final round now shifts back to Los Angeles, where Doncic has dazzled at Staples Center all series long. Can Doncic deliver the knockout punch?
