Kawhi Leonard rarely gets beaten off the dribble. But when he does, the San Antonio Spurs star makes up for it.

Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard learned that the hard way Thursday night against the Western Conference's No. 2 team.

With less than 10 seconds to go in the first half, Dame darted past Leonard and rose to the rim. Leonard, though, chased him down and swatted the shot out of bounds.

The stoic All-Star barely even reacted.

The Spurs took a 56-54 lead into the half at the AT&T Center.
