Duncan on Leonard:
He continues to impress me every time he’s out there. He can put on a show like that in a situation like this. It’s not only great for us, but it’s impressive to watch.
Coach Rivers on Game 3 Loss:
We’ve had this happen a couple of times this year, we lose our spirit because we can’t make shots. I thought that’s what happened as the game went on. Every time we missed a shot, we played less and less defense.
I’m just doing whatever it takes to help the team win the game. Tony (Parker) did a good job getting off early and just created opportunities for me knocking down shots and I just got a rhythm.
Coach Popovich on Leonard:
He has really progressed by leaps and bounds on both ends of the floor. He’s turned into a fine offensive player, as well as a defensive player. He’s not a one-trick pony kind of guy. He’s something else.
