Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about on Thursday:
The Kawhi Leonard dunk. It’s not like Kawhi to make emphatic statements, but he made one on Wednesday night. It’s a broken record at this point to talk about how long Leonard is, but oh my, look at how high the ball is at its peak.
The Jan Oblak saves. Atletico Madrid advanced in the Champions League with their 0-0 draw with Bayer Leverkusen, giving Atletico a 4-2 win on aggregate. Any chance Bayer had of coming from behind were stonewalled by Oblak who made three ridiculous saves in mere seconds in the second half.
The Ricky Rubio pass. It’s the Timberwolves, so not many people are talking about them, but Rubio has been playing out of his mind for the last month or so, especially since the All-Star break. Since the break, Rubio is averaging over 16 points and over 11 assists per game and the T-Wolves have won seven of their last 11.
