Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers are viewed as one of the few teams in the NBA this season that can win the NBA Finals. After putting together a massive offseason with the additions of Leonard in free agency and Paul George in a blockbuster trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder, everything has changed for the organization.
Following their win over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, the Clippers are now 31-13 on the year. Leonard took some time after the game to speak out about the main key to winning for the Clippers. It’s definitely an intriguing quote.
Andrew Greif of The Los Angeles Times took to Twitter to share the quote from Leonard.
Leonard has been having a big year for the Clippers. He has still be resting quite a bit to make sure that his knee stays healthy, but has still played in 34 games.
In those 34 games, Leonard has averaged 27.1 points per game to go along with 7.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists. He has shot 46.6 percent from the field overall and has knocked down 35.5 percent of his three-point attempts. Those numbers are solid all-around and show why the Clippers are views as a championship contender.
All of that being said, Leonard and the Clippers have their work cut out for them. Beating the Los Angeles Lakers in a seven-game series in the West won’t be easy. However, that is the series that all of us are keeping our fingers crossed for.
