Los Angeles Clippers Welcome PG & Kawhi Partership

The Los Angeles Clippers vision began to take shape during their 107 – 104 overtime win over the Boston Celtics.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George shared the court for the first time since they both joined the Los Angeles Clippers. While it was a chaotic, edgy win over the Celtics, the game left Los Angeles excited about the future.

“That s— was fun as hell,” said Patrick Beverly. 

Paul George finished with 25 points, 8 assists and 5 rebounds. As well as that, he hit the go-ahead three pointer for the second game in a row.

Kawhi Leonard had 17 points and 6 rebounds.

“It was fun to see what this team can look like on the defensive end,” George said, “and offensively, it was fun to see how we can play off each other.

“The fact of the matter is we are going to have growing pains, and I think the most positive thing is we understood that. Nobody was pointing fingers or dropping their heads in huddles … at no point was this team ever dysfunctional.”

George has reportedly waited a long time for his chance to play with Kawhi. Apparently, he tried to convince the Indiana Pacers to sign him from the Spurs in 2017. San Antonio couldn’t make the deal happen, and George has had to wait until they both donned a Los Angeles Clippers uniform.

“I mean, that’s the Finals MVP, man,” George said of Leonard. 

“He knows when it’s time to take over. He’s been there and he’s won championships with multiple ballclubs, so he knows how to stomp and put that foot on opponents’ neck, and that’s what you saw him do tonight.”

While it wasn’t perfect against the Celtics, The Los Angeles Clippers have a hell of a pair on their hands once they figure each other out.

“It’s pretty much just finding each other’s spots and knowing the plays,” Leonard said. 

“It’s still tough. We are both kind of on a minute restriction; hard to get into a flow. But just knowing plays and each other’s spots and the language on the defensive end [will help]. Repetition is what we need right now.”
