Behind another monster performance from Kawhi Leonard, the San Antonio Spurs (35-6) topped the Cleveland Cavaliers (27-10), 99-95, Thursday at the AT&T Center.
Leonard finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and solid defense on LeBron James throughout the game. He was joined in double figures by Tony Parker (24), David West (13) and Manu Ginobili.
James led the way for the Cavaliers, scoring 22 points, grabbing seven rebounds and dishing out five assists. Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson both chipped in with double-doubles, while Kyrie Irving and J.R. Smith scored 16 and 17 points, respectively.
The Cavs will get a shot at revenge on their home floor on January 30.
