NBA Playoffs 2019: WATCH: Kawhi Leonard ends first half with emphatic poster dunk

#Kawhi

Kawhi Leonard has been an unstoppable force throughout the Toronto Raptors' second round series against the Philadelphia 76ers.

In Game 5 however he was well held by the Sixers in the opening half as his shot from beyond the arc abandoned him.

But Leonard showed he's still the most dangerous player on the floor by throwing down a poster dunk in the dying seconds before halftime.

Leonard dribbled the ball around the three point line, received a screen from Kyle Lowry on Joel Embiid and flew down the lane towards the rim.

He launched and was met in the air by James Ennis and Tobias Harris who were helpless to stop the powerful dunk.



The dunk brought the entire Scotiabank Arena to their feet and helped the Raptors capture a 64-43 halftime lead.

Leonard ended the first half with a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Just when you think you've done a good job of containing Leonard, he explodes and shows how dangerous he really can be.
