The LA Clippers Are Once Again Dominating Teams

The Los Angeles Clippers took on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night and it was a dominating performance by the Clips, as they won 120-106, for their 6th win in a row!

The win moves them to first in the western conference with a 12-4 record and the team has been led by their superstars of late, and Friday night was no different. Kawhi Leonard finished the night with 31 points, Paul George added 29, and Serge Ibaka chipped in with 17 points and 11 boards.

From the game notes:

The Clippers grabbed control in the first half, scoring 36 points in the first quarter and 34 in the second on 63% shooting. They opened the second quarter with a 19-10 spurt, including George’s steal and dunk followed by his consecutive 3-pointers, for their largest lead of 27 points. From there, the Thunder put together a 25-15 surge, hitting five 3-pointers, to trail 70-53 at halftime.

The Thunder worked to reduce a 23-point deficit to 10 points in the third. They outscored the Clippers 15-2 during one stretch, helped by eight points from Lugentz Dort and Mike Muscala’s first 3-pointer after he missed four attempts in the first half.

But Leonard quickly put the Clippers ahead 91-75, running off six in a row. 

And the rest was history. 

These two teams meeting again on Sunday in Los Angeles.
