Los Angeles improved to 5-1 at home.

Leonard - after missing Los Angeles' game on Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks - dropped 27 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in 33 minutes to lead the Clippers to a 107-101 win against the Portland Trail Blazers at the Staples Center. The Clipper were without Kawhi Leonard in this one, as it was a rest day for him.

"The NBA has fined the Clippers $50,000 for statements, including by head coach Doc Rivers, that were inconsistent with Leonard's health status".

In a statement announcing the fine on Thursday, the league said it continued to believe that Leonard has an injury but questioned Rivers' remarks. "I can't read too much into it".

The Clippers have also played well on the defensive end, but they have struggled when Leonard is not in the lineup. In May, Rivers said on ESPN that Leonard "is the most like Jordan that we've seen" when likening the All-Star physically to former National Basketball Association great Michael Jordan. That's usually Lillard's time to shine, but the Clippers' defense wasn't having it.

"For me, I'm on his side, you know what I mean?"

"I felt if I had an inch, I'd go for the kill", Williams said. The team is giving up 128 points per game in its last two games and will need to play significantly better to get past the Clippers on Thursday. They are coming off a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in a game that Kawhi Leonard sat out, and will try to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Trailblazers, which will snap their losing streak and give them their third win in their last four games.@Jmyke1 is touting a league-best 54.8 3P% (min. 25 3PA) so far this season. The decision, though, clearly looked as if it paid off Thursday night.

During the game's second quarter, the cat wandered onto the field before sprinting through the Giants' end zone. It eventually exited the field in the corner of the end zone and into the tunnel but has yet to be found.

The Clippers rallied from eight points down early in the period, taking their first lead on Leonard's basket. The Clippers' defense held the duo scoreless in the fourth quarter on a combined 0-for-8 shooting.

With Lillard and McCollum getting shut down, Anfernee Simons scored 16 of his 17 points in the fourth, including Portland's first 12 of the quarter.

The Clippers were kings of the fourth quarter. Leonard then played in 24 postseason games, averaging 30.5 points and 9.1 rebounds to lead Toronto to its first championship and earning Finals MVP honors.

On Wednesday, the league said it accepted the Clippers plan to sit Leonard, who was listed on the injury report with an ailing knee, in the first of back-to-back games. "That's my answer. I just won't answer". "The team has reasonably determined that Leonard is suffering from an ongoing injury to the patella tendon in his left knee and has been placed by the team at this time on an injury protocol for back-to-back games".

"It just helps from just me pushing on something that's not ready", Leonard said of the long-term benefits of the strategy.

"Usually I can make those shots down the stretch, but they weren't falling", Lillard said.
