You thought Kawhi Leonard was impressive in the regular season? Somehow, he has been even better in the playoffs.

Leonard has single-handedly led the Toronto Raptors on both ends of the floor throughout the postseason. His offensive performance has especially been off the charts and he's on the brink of cracking the top three in franchise history for playoff scoring -- after just 17 games!

What we've been witnessing from the Klaw during these playoffs is unprecedented for NBA players not named LeBron James. He has been putting up 30-plus-point games with ease, and at a historic rate.

Leonard currently ranks third in the NBA in playoff scoring with 31.4 points per game, trailing only Kevin Durant and James Harden. If that isn't impressive enough, he's also shooting over 50 percent from the field and 40 percent from behind the arc. He's getting it done from all spots on the floor, and this Raptors team continues to reap the benefits.

Kawhi's free-agent stock continues to grow and these playoffs are a true indicator of why he's one of the premier talents in the NBA.
