Clippers hit clutch shots late to pull out the victory over OKC 108-100
Los Angeles- Despite Paul George having a rough night, Kawhi Leonard put the team on his back and got the victory for them.
George could not buy a bucket to save his life against the Thunder. He was forcing up shots and looked very tender with going to the rim. PG 13 was pulled in the fourth, due to hamstring tightness. While George finished 4 of 13 and had 11 points, Leonard decided to take over in the fourth quarter.
The Clippers once double digit lead seemed to shrink with 10 minutes left in regulation and that was when Leonard demanded the ball and took over. Leonard went into his bag of tricks and was serving up dimes and dishes. He had four assists in the fourth, which helped sprung a 12-6 run for the Clippers late into the quarter.
LA got a little tired on the defensive end with under a two minutes left in the game. OKC took advantage and went on a mini-run to cut the lead back down to single digits. Leonard crushed the Thunder's heart with a rim shaking dunk to ice the game with .45 seconds left on the clock.
Leonard finished with 34 points, 8 assists, and 9 rebounds.
