Spurs 97, Rockets 95

Rookie Kawhi Leonard showed Spurs fans exactly what he's capable of in his San Antonio debut on Wednesday night. Leonard hit a 20-footer from the left wing with 5.3 seconds remaining to give the Spurs a 97-95 win over the Houston Rockets in the preseason finale for both teams.
