Bad news pacer fans. The guy we traded for George Hill in the off season hit the game winner tonight vs. the Rockets. With about 5 seconds left in the game, Leonard caught the ball near the left side of the perimeter, used a couple of fancy little dribbling moves to get himself some space for a release, and nailed a jumper that put the Spurs ahead by 2 points with 2 seconds remaining.
I assume the Rockets didn't have any timeouts because they decided to just inbound it after the made shot, and missed their final attempt at the buzzer to win the game.
The good news? Well, he only had 3 points and 3 rebounds on 1-6 shooting in a total of 21 minutes.
There was a long list of games tonight, and I only watched one, so I decided to zip through the highlights to see how every team was doing. When I saw the end of the Spurs vs Rockets highlights, I had to rewind a couple times as I couldn't believe my eyes, and also checked his player profile to see what number he wore. Yup, good old #2. Just our luck right?

Hopefully we don't keep seeing good things from this guy.
