Down 34 points after halftime, Clippers coach Ty Lue waved the white flag. Kawhi Leonard do not like it.
The Denver Nuggets lead 66-32 in two-quarters of Thursday’s game against Clippers Los Angeles. That’s when Lue pulled the plug, sitting all five of his starting players to start the second half.
After the game, Lue told reporters he decided the Clippers “didn’t have it tonight” as he sat starting. It doesn’t look like his stars are good: Paul George, who has a hamstring problem, hit 1-9 from the field. Leonard was 2-7 and scored six points. Lue decides the game is out, and with the Clippers playing in Minnesota tonight, he lets his bench play the rest of the way.
But Leonard wasn’t happy about that.
