  • Clippers' Norman Powell: Struggles from field in loss

    Powell accumulated six points (2-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal over 26 minutes during Tuesday's 96-93 loss to the Mavericks in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Powell landed two three-pointers in the loss but failed to connect on any other baskets. He remains an offensive sparkplug off the bench, but on nights like this, his lack of peripheral stats is on display for all to see. If the Clippers are to wrestle back home-court advantage, they need Powell to be a more reliable offensive threat.

  • Clippers' Terance Mann: Struggles continue in loss

    Mann racked up five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over 21 minutes during Tuesday's 96-93 loss to the Mavericks in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Mann offered very little outside of a highlight putback dunk, bumbling his way to five points as the Clippers gave up home-court advantage to the Mavericks. Although he continues to serve as a starting piece, the return of Kawhi Leonard from a knee injury means Mann could now be viewed as the fifth option on offense.

  • Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Strong two-way effort in return

    Leonard totaled 15 points (7-17 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one block and four steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 96-93 loss to Dallas in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Leonard returned to action Tuesday after missing nine straight games due to a knee injury. Although he was somewhat tentative to begin the game, he led the team in shot attempts and added five defensive stats. Barring any setbacks, Leonard should be good to go for Game 3 in Dallas on Friday.

  • Clippers' Amir Coffey: Moves to bench

    Coffey will move to the bench for Tuesday's Game 2 versus Dallas, Justin Russo of the 'Clip & Roll' podcast reports.

    This is an expected move for the Clippers, as Kawhi Leonard has the green light to return from his knee issue. Coffey was held in check in Game 1 on Sunday, scoring six points with three rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes.

  • Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Good to go for Game 2

    Leonard (knee) will be available to play in Tuesday's Game 2 against the Mavericks, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Leonard participated in the team's morning shootaround and went through his usual warmup Tuesday, and the Clippers had been very optimistic about his return prior to getting the official green light. The Clippers haven't been very transparent with this injury, and it's unclear whether Leonard will face restrictions Tuesday evening.

  • Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Optimistic to play Tuesday

    The Clippers believe Leonard (knee) will be able to play in Tuesday's Game 2 against the Mavericks, Jared Greenberg of NBA TV reports.

    Leonard is officially listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest after sitting out Game 1 with right knee inflammation. However, the star forward was able to participate in shootaround. If Leonard is able to suit up against Dallas, he will likely replace Amir Coffey in the starting lineup.

  • Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Present at shootaround

    Leonard (knee) is officially listed as questionable but was present for the Clippers' morning shootaround before Tuesday's Game 2 against the Mavericks, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com

    Leonard was ruled out for Sunday's Game 1 win, his ninth consecutive absence, but has a chance to return Tuesday. The Clippers will likely decide the veteran's availability closer to the 10 p.m. ET tipoff after seeing how he fares in pregame warmups. If Leonard is ruled out again, expect Terance Mann and Amir Coffey to pick up extra minutes.

  • Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Game-time call for Game 2

    Leonard (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Mavericks, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Leonard took part in Monday's practice, and while it was reported to be a non-contact session, it appears all went well. The team will likely re-assess the star forward in the morning and see how he fares in shootaround and pregame warmups before making a decision on his availability for Game 2.

  • Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Set to practice Monday

    Leonard (knee) will participate in the Clippers' practice session Monday, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    While it's encouraging that Leonard will practice Monday after missing Sunday's Game 1 against Dallas, the Clippers won't be doing contact during the session and will treat it more like a walkthrough, per Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com. The team will monitor the 32-year-old ahead of Tuesday's Game 2, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Leonard labeled as a game-time decision.

  • Clippers' Paul George: Strong from deep in 20-point game

    George registered 22 points (8-20 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 38 minutes during Sunday's 109-97 win over the Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    George had a strong performance from deep in Sunday's Game 1 victory, connecting on a quartet of threes while ending second on the team in scoring and as one of three Clippers with 20 or more points in a winning effort. George, who also hauled in a half-dozen rebounds, concluded the regular season by scoring at least 20 points in six of his final 10 outings. George and teammate James Harden will continue to function as the top offensive options for the Clippers if Kawhi Leonard (knee) misses additional time.

  • Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Owns glass in double-double showing

    Zubac logged 20 points (10-17 FG, 0-1 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 33 minutes during Sunday's 109-97 victory over the Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Zubac led all players in rebounds while ending as one of three Clippers with 20 or more points in a double-double showcase. Zubac posted four games during the regular season with 15 or more rebounds, adding 20 or more points in one of those outings. Los Angeles will look for Zubac to continue to own the battle in the paint this series while also providing a much-needed spark offensively in a favorable matchup against Dallas.

  • Clippers' James Harden: Nears 30 points as top scorer

    Harden recorded 28 points (8-17 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two rebounds, eight assists and two blocks over 39 minutes during Sunday's 109-97 victory over the Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Harden returned for the start of the postseason after missing the Clippers' regular-season finale with a right foot inflammation and went on to lead all players in threes made and assists in a near-30-point double-double in a winning effort. Harden posted at least 28 points in six games during the regular season, adding eight or more assists in each of those outings. Sunday marked his fifth game of the year, both regular season and postseason, with six or more threes made.

  • Clippers' P.J. Tucker: Back to bench

    Tucker won't start Game 1 of the opening-round series against the Mavericks on Sunday, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Tucker started six straight games to end the regular season, averaging only 2.2 points and 2.3 rebounds during that stretch. Kawhi Leonard (knee) remains sidelined, but Amir Coffey will take Leonard's place and be joined by Paul George, James Harden, Terance Mann and Ivica Zubac.
