If you were wondering who could put a stop to Luka Doncic, you might have got an answer on Tuesday night. It was one we should have known all along: the Los Angeles Clippers. Not only can they score for fun with to two superstars in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, but they also can defend in a ‘scary’ good way.
That’s what they did on the evening, grinding out a 114-99 win. They ‘only’ allowed 22 points from Doncic, who made just four buckets from the field. In doing so, they increased their run to six games and ended the Dallas Mavericks’ five game winning streak in the process. Leonard finished with 28 points, while George had 26. 17 of those came in the first quarter as they asserted themselves and made their intentions clear.
