When the game was on the line, Leonard stepped up and buried a massive 3-pointer to put his team up four with 38.5 seconds, a shot that eventually secured the win that would tie the series at two games apiece.

Kawhi is now posting ridiculous averages of 32.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.0 steals per game shooting 58.7% from the field, 50.0% from beyond the arc and 85.7% from the free throw line.

After the game, his teammates, head coach and opponents had nothing but praise for how great the All-Star forward has been.

Head coach Nick Nurse

"For the shots he took tonight, that was one of the tougher ones and he made a big shot."

Head coach Brett Brown

"He's punishing for sure ... he hit that back-breaker three. The stuff that he can do to create his own shot is Kobe-like. He's so gifted in relation to doing that ... He's a hell of a player - 39 points and we really felt all of them."

Danny Green

"He's doing it time and time again. He's just getting better each game," per TSN's Josh Lewenberg.

Jimmy Butler

"He is a really good player and he has been doing that for a long time in the league. He has done that in every game this series so what else can you do."
