After a first quarter of fire (40-22, 18 points for Paul George), the LA Clippers only had to manage to garner their tenth success of the season (10-7, 7th in the West), against at San Antonio (119-97). George finished with 21 points without playing the second half, hampered by a calf. Los Angeles scored 21 3-point shots (21/40) against Spurs who remain on nine losses in ten games.
Norman Powell was Angeleno’s leading scorer (26 points off the bench), while Kawhi Leonard totaled 11 points at 5/8 and 4 assists in 22 minutes, and substitute point guard John Wall 15 assists in 24 minutes. Frenchman Nicolas Batum settled for 3 points (1/3 to 3 points) 3 rebounds and 1 assist in 16 minutes. The Clippers receive Monday night Utah for a test against the leader of the West.
