So far, Kawhi has had 2 opportunities to win the game at the buzzer. Versus Detroit and Golden State. The Detroit one was clearly an unforced fumble where he dribbled off his foot. Yesterday's game however, I still don't know why he passed it out. He faked out two defenders in the air and had a good shot at the basket. The arena would've went bonkers.

Even a novice like me can see that. Unfortunately, DD and even Casey somehow didn't get it done so say all you will about the GM, he made a move. KL just brings something special, an intangible quality not many players have. You either got the killer instinct *and* can execute, or you don't.
Kawhi does NOT have the killer instinct, that was evident last night and every other game where he’s had a chance to finish it

The Raptors are much better defensively and better at shooting 3s with DeRozan gone.

The Spurs got much worse defensively and worse at shooting 3s since they acquired DeRozan.
The Spurs have pretty much the same roster as last year minus old Tony Parker and add in DeRozan
You forgot about Ginobili

Fred goes scoreless, CJ gave us nothing, OG goes 1-6, Kyle 4-14 and we still win! Kawhi, Pascal, Serge totally carried us, Kawhi was simply magnificent. When they get Curry, Green back for the Dec 12th game you would think they are unbeatable but you can attack Curry on O and cheat off Green on D.

The win last night will boost up the confident to face GSW again in final. Some players may not have their best during regular season but totally different during playoff.

Ya, what's wrong w/ you, airpods? LOL.

Anyway, KL makes things happen by himself or affecting others. The team didn't have any killer instinct at all during all those previous years. He's obviously the game changer.

he's a 2X defensive player of the year, 2X all NBA, 4X all defensive. after missing most of last year, he's 9th in the league in pts/gm, and again one of the best defenders in the league. it's a long season and process to get to where it counts...the playoffs. you know, that time of the year where he was previously the finals mvp?

so he doesn't have the killer instinct huh?..unlike the guy who they traded him for and all the success he had in the playoffs? any other words of wisdom there airpods?

Why are you talking about his defensive accomplishments when discussing “killer instincts “?

Like I said, he’s had numerous chances to put away close games. He’s failed every time. Don’t get your hopes up on the playoffs

If DeMar was still on the team, the Raptors would be down 20 points and with no chance of winning the game at the end of regulation.

The Spurs just lost on their homecourt by 31 points against the Houston Rockets.
How's that 10 and 12 record in the Western Conference exemplifying how good DeRozan is without Kyle Lowry?

Kawhi's is 7-5 in the playoffs against LeBron's teams. Should have been 8-3 if Ginobli did not temporarily defect to the Miami Heat and
if Popovic didn't pull Duncan out in the final minutes of game 6 in 2014.

DeMar is 2-12 in the playoffs against teams with LeBron. Many of those were noncompetitive blowout losses.

This sounds like a similar argument in the Leafs' thread: ridiculously always blaming the goalie lol. KL gets the job done, period, aren't they doing much better already vs past years?

We’ve been very good in the regular season for a long time now. Didn’t we finish first in the east just a year or 2 ago?

However, it's the difference of *how* they finish games that's crucial. Anyway, I guess we'll havta wait till the playoffs to really see what's up.
