Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau on Kawhi Leonard: "He is terrific. He is an MVP candidate. To me, All-Stars and MVPs, you look at what they do for their team and winning. There are people that they can get stats on. But they don't contribute to winning. He does everything to help his team win. I think he had 17 shots, great defense, unselfishness, great plays, plays with a lot of toughness and that's how you win. When you are as dominant as he is defensively, to me he is the defensive player of the year candidate. He is always on top every year. He is disruptive, and the demeanor that he plays with gives their team a lot of poise."

The Timberwolves lead the Spurs 71-67 at the half. This is the second time this season the Spurs have given up 70 in the first half. Officiating is very touchy in this one which is partly why Minnesota is 29 of 30 from the free-throw line. The Spurs have shot 22 free throws. If this keeps up, we could be in for a long night.

The Spurs have led by 10 points or more in each of their three losses so far this month, and lost by a total margin of seven points in those games. What's the common thread? "Guys are competing. That's never an issue," said Spur power forward LaMarcus Aldridge. "Just playing, being locked in more, not falling asleep on certain plays, not giving up easy baskets, at times. Those guys made tough shots, too, so it wasn't all bad defense. We just have to limit times we make mistakes out there."

Michael C. Wright ESPN Staff Writer 

Spurs forward and Dallas native LaMarcus Aldridge on the Cowboys' loss to the Green Bay Packers: "Definitely a tough way to lose, but I'm proud of the team. I'm no owner, I'm no coach, but I'm a fan, and to have two young guys play that well and to have them fight back like that, I was proud."
