Once the Clippers went ahead 9-6 they never trailed again. That the Thunder were the heavy underdogs wasn’t surprising but much like they’ve done all season they never give up regardless of the score.
OKC began the season 5-1 on the road but are 0-2 to start this five-game road trip with a tough trio of opponents on tap. After the Sunday match in LA they play the Blazers on Monday to complete a back-to-back set and finish the road trip in Phoenix.
The Clippers – Thunder matches offer the interesting side note of the trade that sent Paul George to LA in exchange for the new Thunder cornerstone Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and copious first-round draft picks and swaps.
Although Kawhi Leonard had the best individual effort in the match, SGA was a close second with 30 points, eight assists, three rebounds, and two steals.
Luguentz Dort (19), George Hill (12), Mike Muscala (11), and Hamidou Diallo (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Al Horford has missed the last four games welcoming child number four to the family and is out Sunday.
Josh Hall (health and safety), Ty Jerome (ankle), and Trevor Ariza (personal) are all out indefinitely.
Los Angeles Clippers
The chemistry of the tweaked iteration of this Clippers squad is meshing well. Offensively, they look better than last season and Paul George is motivated to prove a point.
Serge Ibaka and Nicolas Batum have fit in seamlessly and make the starting lineup much more diverse and capable on both sides of the court.
The most obvious difference in the squad this season is their bolstered offense which features seven players who are averaging over 40 percent from the perimeter.
While their 16th ranked defense has trailed the top-ranked offense over the last two weeks they ranked sixth. As the team adapts to head coach Ty Lue’s system tweaks it seems inevitable they will land in the top five.
In the victory over the Thunder Friday, Kawhi Leonard led the way with 31 points and filled up the stat sheet with eight rebounds, two assists, three steals, and two blocks.
Ibaka delivered a double-double of 17 points and 11 rebounds while Paul George scored 29 points. Batum spent the afternoon welcoming his daughter into the world and made it back in time for the game chipping in 14 points.
Jay Scrubb is recovering from foot surgery and out indefinitely.
