Kawhi Leonard became the San Antonio Spurs' fourth player ever to average not less than 30 points per game in an NBA playoff series since the franchise from Texas joined the NBA in 1977, according to ESPN's Elias Sports Bureau.

Spurs star Leonard concluded the first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies by collecting 31.2 points on an excellent 54.8 shooting from the field. The 25-year-old contributed to his team by grabbing six rebounds and stealing two balls in 37.7 minutes per game as well.

The 2014 NBA Finals MVP led his team to make it past the Memphis Grizzlies in the opening round series.

The Spurs reached the Western Conference after outclassing the Grizzlies with a 4-2 result. They are set to face off against the Houston Rockets next.

Leonard joins some huge names

Goerge Gervin with 33.3 points in the first-round of the 1980 NBA playoffs is the first San Antonio Spurs player to achieve that milestone.

David Robinson's name can also be found on the list, having averaged 30 points per contest during the 1995 last four stage of the Western Conference and 1996 first-round respectively.

Tim Duncan, who retired this past offseason, is also on the list, as he did average 32.3 points per game in the 2006 Western Conference semis.

On Thursday night -- once the series against the Memphis Grizzlies was concluded -- Kawhi Leonard joined the three players mentioned above on the list.

Not afraid of contact

Kawhi Leonard tied the best free-throw percentage in an NBA playoff series where a player has gone at least 50 times to the free-throw line, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

The San Antonio Spurs star shot 61 free throws during the series against the Memphis Grizzlies -- made 59 of those 61 -- which was enough for a percent of 96.7.

Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks also had a 59-of-61 record from the free-throw line once. The Mavericks legend achieved it during the 2011 Finals of the Western Conference against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

More records

Kawhi Leonard's 37 points scored in Game 2 against the Memphis Grizzlies has been his new playoff career-high, according to San Antonio Spurs Facebook.

The 25-year-old forward shot 9-of-14 from the field on 64.3 field goal percentage in the game. He made each of 19 free-throw attempts in the game as well.

It remains to be seen can Leonard lead his team to make it past the Rockets in the next stage and potentially break more records while doing so.
