Leonard, Spurs spoil Kings arena opening with 102-94 win

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Kawhi Leonard ripped the ball away from Ben McLemore and drove the other way for a three-point play. Then the next time down the court, Leonard grabbed it away from McLemore and scored on the other end.

Those two plays turned the momentum San Antonio's way and sent the Spurs home with a very successful season-opening trip following a 102-94 victory over the Kings on Thursday night that spoiled the regular season opener at Sacramento's new downtown arena.

"He took two away in a row and said, `Gimme that.' He just grabbed it away from whoever it was," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "He just grabbed it and took it twice in a row. I don't see many people doing that."
