Kawhi Leonard injured his left ankle late in the fourth quarter and did not play in the extra session, but he still led the Spurs with 22 points and 15 rebounds.
Jonathon Simmons filled in for Leonard and did not disappoint with 12 points and three steals while doing a spectacular job covering Rockets star James Harden, who turned the ball over thrice in overtime.
