Leonard said he’s glad the NBA implemented a new rule in which they can call flagrant or technical fouls on players who jump dangerously close to shooters and don’t give them a clear path to land. “I just think it’s good to protect the players from getting hurt,” he said. “It happened in the past to the players I saw when I wasn’t in the NBA. So I think it’s a good rule just for the defender to be cautious, and not to injure the player.”

Leonard initially said he didn’t think Pachulia meant to hurt him, though many thought the closeout play in Game 1 was dirty, including Popovich. Leonard was asked Monday whether he reconsidered. “It’s over with now,” he said. “I’d just rather talk about the new season. If it was dirty, if it wasn’t, it’s not going to help anything right now.”
