Kristaps Porzingis is no match for Kawhi Leonard

BY foxsports • January 11, 2016

When Kawhi Leonard sets off on a drive to the basket, there's a very, very good chance the possession will end well for the San Antonio Spurs. At worst, he'll draw a foul. At best, he'll block the sun out with a devastating dunk.

A few days ago, Leonard turned the corner and found himself face to face with New York Knicks rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis, one of the longest players on record, listed at a stringy 7'3". But height is nothing but a number for someone as creative and brilliant as Leonard:

Kawhi is averaging 20.7 points per game, shooting 51.6 percent from the floor and 49.3 percent from behind the three-point line (which leads the league). He's quickly become an unstoppable offensive threat, the type of player who can pick defenses apart from the mid-range if he wants, but maintains his efficiency at the rim and beyond the arc.

If Porzingis can't stop him on this play, nobody can.
