Kawhi Leonard had 10 rebounds to go with nine points for the Spurs.

Nando De Colo's rookie season with the San Antonio Spurs wasn't supposed to be this impressive.
He was supposed to be learning how to play the NBA style and grab a feel for things with his new teammates. The knock on him was that he wasn't athletic enough to be relevant in the game and his defense was poor.
If you've seen him play with the Spurs so far this...
The San Antonio Spurs have gone away from the defensive, shutdown philosophy that made them so successful in the past. It’s not a huge problem because they’ve improved the offense as well and can still win by outscoring their opponents, but on the year, the Spurs are giving up 97 points per game.
One reason the Spurs could be giving up so many points is the fact that Kawhi...

It was great to...
