Last night the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs played Game 5 of their second-round series. Manu Ginobili switched with Jonathon Simmons to defend James Harden at the three point line.
If Leonard is still hobbled for Game 6 it will be another blow to a team already without Tony Parker, after the veteran suffered a season-ending quadriceps injury in Game 2.
The other factor that swung the game San Antonio's way was the turnovers.
The main concern for the Spurs, however, is the extent of Leonard's injury.
Harden also played solid defense, helping hold Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge to 15-for-42 shooting as he rotated assignments in Houston's smaller lineup. But he insisted that he's fine and will be ready to go on Thursday. "Going to take as much time as possible, see what he feels like, see what I see and make a decision".
Game 1 between the Spurs and Warriors will be on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14 at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Game 5 was a good one, a one-possession contest for most of the fourth quarter and overtime, despite both teams struggling mightily to score during crunch time. O yeah and let's not forget that the Spurs closed out game five without Kawhi Leonard. They led by as much as 22 points and finished the half leading 61-42. Stating the obvious, Ginobili told reporters after the game he didn't want to think about losing Leonard "because Kawhi became our go-to guy, our three guy, three defender, rebounder". Ginobili snuck behind Harden and blocked the last shot of the game saving the Spurs from another overtime and winning the game.
