Los Angeles Clippers
Kawhi Leonard was a late scratch due to back spasms in the Clippers match at Boston and without his presence, the Clippers struggled to close out the game eventually losing to the Celtics.
It was the second consecutive loss in a row for the Clippers and fifth in their last eight contests. Leonard’s counterpart Paul George tried his best to keep LA in the match but struggled with the extra attention and length of the Celtics’ wings on him.
George scored 32 points to lead LA but needed 26 shots to get there also contributing five rebounds and four assists. Inserted into the starting lineup Reggie Jackson produced 25 points and seven assists.
Lou Williams scored 12 points while Marcus Morris added 10 but left the game after taking an inadvertent Jaylen Brown elbow to the head that resulted in a concussion.
Leonard’s status for Thursday’s game against the Wizards is questionable.
Patrick Patterson (personal) missed the last two games and is questionable for Sunday.
After a stretch that saw the Wizards win seven of eight games (with the lone loss to the Clippers), Washington has lost two games in a row.
The first by a single point in a match where the refs lost their whistles at the game end allowing the Celtics to steal the match away from the Wizards. The second was a thorough beat down (125-111) by the Grizzlies.
The Wizards starting backcourt of Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook both scored 23 points to lead Washington’s offense. Westbrook registered a double-double dishing 15 assists and grabbed six rebounds but had an atrocious eight turnovers.
The former MVP is flirting with averaging a triple-double again (20.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, 9.7 assists).
Robin Lopez (14), Davis Bertans (11), and Deni Avdija (10) all reached double-digit scoring against the Grizzlies.
Ish Smith is nursing a quad injury and won’t play versus the Clippers. Thomas Bryant is lost for the season after tearing his ACL.
