LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Clippers were healthy as a complete team for only the second time this season as they defeated the Minnesota T’Wolves 118-106 on Saturday afternoon. The Clippers healthy roster proved to be beneficial as Paul George and Kawhi Leonard combined for 52 points in the win. George shot 50% from the field as well as from three point range against the T’Wolves.
A totally different story from Thursday night, as the Clippers suffered an embarrassing 124-103 loss to the Sacramento Kings after an emotional Kobe Bryant tribute video narrated by George.
Leonard was a late scratch on Thursday night due to lower back tightness, where his absence was noticed on the floor.
Another milestone occurred on Saturday night as Kawhi Leonard’s jersey was retired at San Diego State, and the entire Clippers team showed up in support.
