In the Clippers, disappointing game of their big stars. Kawhi leonard He stayed at 14 points after missing 16 of the 22 points he tried and Pal George in 10 points after finishing with 4 of 16 in field goals and 2 of 11 in triples. Lou Williams and Marcus Morris stayed at 7 points, missing too many shots. The best was Montrezl Harrell with 20 units.
Despite the reshuffling of the roster and the signings, Doc Rivers’ Clippers are once again missing a Conference Finals. Tremendous blow for a franchise that expected to complete the best season in history, but that has once again been given a setback at the decisive moment of the season.
The merit of the Nuggets to come back from 3-1 against is tremendous. We will see what they are capable of against the Los Angeles Lakers.
