On most other nights, Canaan's performance would have been the focus of the game, but the 76ers came up against Thunder guard Russell Westbrook, who posted a 49-16-10 line while becoming the first player since Michael Jordan in 1989 to record four straight triple-doubles. Canaan racked up seven rebounds, six assists and one steal in 42 minutes in the loss.
The 76ers will square off against the Jazz Friday.
Westbrook missed his team's previous game after undergoing facial surgery and came back even stronger Wednesday, going 16 for 33 from the field and 16 for 20 from the free-throw line en route to arguably the best performance of his career. He's also delivered five 40-point performances in his last 13 games.
Westbrook also chipped in three steals and one block in 42 minutes of action Wednesday. The Thunder move on to face the Bulls Thursday.
Leonard had one of the most efficient shooting performances of his career Wednesday but was only able to make one of his four free-throw attempts. He also recorded five rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block in 29 minutes.
The Spurs take a three-game winning streak into Friday's matchup with the Nuggets.
