As one of the best all-around players in the league, Kawhi Leonard’s offensive ability was on full-display in this game against the Houston Rockets.
On this play, Kawhi had the ball at the top of the three-point line with P.J. Tucker defending. Leonard’s shiftiness on the dribble turned a left and right crossover into an ankle-breaker highlight, with Tucker doing a 360 trying to guard the Klaw. After getting past P.J., Kawhi had an open lane to the rim with Robert Covington trying to peak behind Clippers Center Ivica Zubac to see the ball. On instinct, Convington rose up for the block a tad late, fouling the Los Angeles star. Despite the contact, Kawhi crammed a right-handed poster dunk over Robert, with the and-1 call.
Leonard’s footwear in this 2-for-1 highlight play was the New Balance OMN1S. This silhouette features mesh on the majority of the upper, with leather panel in the collar area. The shoe notably features FuelCell cushioning in the midsole, a nitrogen-infused foam that helps get a quick first step.
Kawhi rocked the “Sundown” black, orange, and yellow colorway for this game, which can be found HERE.
