Clippers lose to the Celtics without Kawahi.
The Clippers had a matchup against the Boston Celtics and at the last minute Ty Lue was forced to bench Kawahi Leonard because of a back injury. Paul George had 32 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists in the contest. Lou Williams chipped in with 12 points, and 4 rebounds while Reggie Jackson had a strong supporting performance with 25 points, 3 rebounds, and 7 assists.
Ultimately Kawahi Leonard being forced to miss this game due to injury was a tad much for the Clippers to overcome. After the first quarter the score was 35-32 Celtics and going into halftime the score was 63-62 Clippers, so it was still a close affair throughout. Heading into the 4th quarter the score was 89-88 Clippers, but to close out the game the Celtics went on a run and ended up outscoring L.A. by 6 points in the quarter and ultimately winning 117-112. Lets see how the Clippers come out after the All-Star break.
