Playoff newbies Leonard, Green spark rout

The Sports Xchange

The Spurs have talked all season about their depth. Tim Duncan, in fact, has said this is the deepest team he's been on during his 15 years in San Antonio.

The Utah Jazz can't argue that.

Led by youngsters Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green during a 20-0 second quarter run that buried Utah, the Spurs won Game 2 in awe-inspiring fashion 114-83 Wednesday night in San Antonio.

"I know what this team is capable of," said Green, who scored 13 points. "It's not very surprising when you've done many good things this year. We won some games pretty big. You don't expect to win a playoff game like that."

Leonard had 17 points in 25 minutes of action. The play of Leonard and Green, on a team loaded with battle-tested veterans, is another reason why the Spurs have to like their chances the deeper they get into the postseason.

"First of all, I was happy for them," Tony Parker said. "It is their first playoffs and you do not know how they are going to react and how they are going to come out after a good first win.

"I thought they handled the win pretty well. They both came back very aggressive. Kawhi and Danny both shot the ball really well and they both played great defense."

The third game of the series is Saturday night in Salt Lake City. San Antonio leads a playoff series 2-0 for the first time since 2008.
