The Clippers are without Kawhi Leonard, Beverly and Harrell. While Paul George been limited in the second half. The Blazers are in total control of the game until Rodney McGruder hits a clutch three.
Also thanks to a former Spurs no not Kawhi, it’s JaMychal Green who makes a clutch free throws to put the Clippers up to 3 points. Green also grabbed a rebound after Lillard missed a game-tying three. The big man had 13 points and 8 rebounds coming off the bench.
The big man played four games for the San Antonio Spurs after a call up from then NBA D League after a stellar performance in Austin Spurs.
