Video: Kawhi Leonard savagely trolled Terance Mann over missed shot
Kawhi Leonard once again elevated his game in a clutch situation on Sunday, and the Los Angeles Clippers star also appeared to take his trash talking to the next level.
Leonard scored an easy basket late in the third quarter of Game 7 against the Dallas Mavericks that was made possible by Terance Mann badly missing a 3-point attempt from the corner. The shot fell right into Leonard’s hands as Kawhi was crashing the boards. After he scored and was fouled, Leonard looked in Mann’s direction and said “good pass.”

Leonard is known for being one of the more quiet players in the NBA, but that proves that even the quiet ones talk smack. The most emotion we’ve ever seen from Kawhi was when he shared his funny celebration plans after the Toronto Raptors won a title two years ago.
Missing a 3-point attempt that badly in a playoff game is painful enough, but Leonard made it that much worse for Mann.
