The home team LA Clippers defeated the NBA Finals runner up from last year as Kawhi Leonard led the way with 10 – 12 shooting as they routed the Celtics 113-93. They had an all-around effort from Marcus Morris, Sr, Luke Kennard & Paul George all double figures with Terrance Mann adding 9 points. In the end, the Clippers pulled away and the Celtics did not play well, but were missing key centers, Al Horford, and Robert Williams 111. and both are expected back later this week.
Two days later, the Clippers play Minnesota at home and all around great game, but were flat versus Phoenix on the back to back as they were blown out 111-96. They missed a bunch of players or were either injured/or rested for load management from back to back games including Leonard, George, Zubac, Reggie Jackson and Luke Kennard. Phoenix is led by Devin Booker, who returned the lineup after missing a bunch of games with a tight calf and had 14 pts. Chris Paul returned as well and around good game for the Suns as they were led by Mikal Bridges with 27 points. The Suns broke a 5 game losing streak despite playing without starting center DeAndre Ayton. More info on the Clippers with their schedule and stats at www.nba.com/clippers
