After bouncing back from a loss to the Houston Rockets with a thumping of the Denver Nuggets, the San Antonio Spurs get back to business tonight when they face the Minnesota Timberwolves at the AT&T Center.
The Spurs, still undefeated at home, face a Timberwolves squad that has won only 12 games thus far. Defensively the Spurs have been led by The Klaw, Kawhi Leonard who is holding his opponents to 37.8% shooting against him. Tonight Leonard will be tasked to guard the T’Wolves leading scorer, Andrew Wiggins, who is averaging 20 ppg, but against Leonard only 10.8 on 29.2% shooting.
“It’s the same thing every night for me, just depends on the match-up,” Leonard explained. “Just having the mindset of playing defense every night helps me.”
