If I did it right, LBJ had 17 such games in 22 total games last season. Kawhi has 12 in 17 games so far. No one else in that group at this point this season or last season.

Sounds about right. You could cut it at 20 or 25 or whatever. I was cherry-picking the cutoff in Kawhi's favor.
Duncan's 2003 and Shaq's 2000 were epic, career-best, and Kawhi may be there. Does he go for the kill tonight? Does Giannis assert his physicality when his back is to the wall?

It's hard to be the best player on the court when Giannis is out there, but Kawhi has been the man.

Has anyone computed the average tenure in years for players on specific teams for league or individual teams?

How good was Kawhi Leonard's 2019 postseason?
