Doc Rivers says Kawhi Leonard is a calming presence for this team according to Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints. Leonard has been on a tear lately.

In the past seven games, Leonard is averaging 32.3 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. While the bubble is mentally challenging, Leonard has proved solid.

Doc Rivers talked about how Leonard’s presence ranks on top in terms of who has coached:

“Probably up at the top. He doesn’t get too high or low. I mean he does, but he just keeps it in. I would say him and Ray Allen probably come to mind the most.”

Doc Rivers and Kawhi Leonard are who the Clippers rely on for consistency. Rivers has an extensive reputation as a coach. Leonard has played in and won many big games. They have shown their dominance in the bubble this postseason.
