Kawhi Leonard randomly drug-tested after MVP performance against Rockets

<![CDATA[Kawhi Leonard's incredible game against the Houston Rockets didn't go unnoticed.

After putting himself firmly in the MVP discussion with 39 points, six rebounds, five assists and a game-sealing block in the final seconds of Monday night's 112-110 victory, the San Antonio Spurs star was selected for a random drug test.

Leonard took a while to provide a sample because he was slightly dehydrated, according to ESPN’s Michael C. Wright. And who could blame him after playing 39 minutes, including a 6.5-second sequence toward the end of the game that required tremendous hustle on his part.

After hitting the go-ahead 3-pointer to put the Spurs on top with 25.4 seconds remaining, Leonard blocked James Harden’s shot on the ensuing possession.

What a performance by the 25-year-old, who has now scored 30 points or more in four straight games for the Spurs.]]>
