  • It is about us’ Kawhi Leonard leads Clippers through latest matinee blues

And even the postseason featured unfortunate matinee performances that saw the Clippers blow a 21-point lead in Game 4 to the Mavericks (you may recall how that one ended) and lose 111-98 in Game 6 to the Nuggets despite leading by as many as 19 points.

His 34 points, nine rebounds and eight assists and zero turnovers, in 36 minutes, kept the Clippers tied for the NBA's best record.

De'Andre Hunter led Atlanta with a career-high 33 points.

From there he watched as Oklahoma City scored 11 unanswered points to pull within six with 1:56 to play.

Former Clipper Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 23 points with seven assists and six rebounds, and the Thunder scored 66 points in the paint.

Over the last two weeks, the Clippers have built a seven-game winning streak by producing stretches of basketball that have appeared stunningly effortless: passes whipping from one side of the court to the other, shots falling at NBA-best rates and furious second-half efforts that churned out four consecutive blowouts by at least 14 points. "Obviously they're a really good team and outplayed us by eight points this time but I was really happy with the progress we made coming out of the game on Friday, there were some real tangible things we wanted to improve at and I thought we did that tonight for the most part, so it was a net positive day for us".

Hill hit three straight 3-pointers for the Thunder after they trailed by 17 in the fourth.

Reggie Jackson scored 14 points, Paul George chipped in 11 and Ivica Zubac added 10 points and 11 rebounds.

The Thunder brought that edge throughout the game to rally back from the early 17-point deficit on multiple occasions and bring the game to within single digits. Jackson scored 14 points over his next 20 minutes and looked like a player bent on seizing his opportunity, having fallen out of the regular rotation.

"We had a bad start", Dort said. "We just got to stick to it and trust it for a full 48".

A three-pointer by Hill and a bucket by Gilgeous-Alexander sliced the Clippers' lead to 102-96 with 1min 56sec left.

Matinee games have been unusual for the Clippers going back to last January. Williams then dished it off inside to Aleksej Pokuševski who took on contact at the rim as his layup fell short, but Diallo swooped in just in time to elevate and bury the ball through the rim and complete the play.

"It was a huge improvement from the first game, " forward Isaiah Roby said. But we got the W. Again, going forward I should be good.

"The rebounding on the offensive end wasn't necessarily an emphasis but I thought it was a reflection of how hard we were playing and how we were competing", said Daigneault. "You got to learn how to win in adversity and learn how to weather the storm".
