George, Leonard lead Clippers to 113-107 win over Nuggets
Clippers take 2-1 series lead
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Paul George scored 32 points, Kawhi Leonard added 23 along with a big late block and the dynamic duo helped the Los Angeles Clippers rally in the fourth quarter for a 113-107 win over the Denver Nuggets in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series.
Leonard did a little bit of everything as he grabbed 14 rebounds and dished out six assists. He also had two blocks, including one late on a shot by Jamal Murray at the rim. Los Angeles grabbed a 2-1 lead in the series.
Clippers coach Doc Rivers called a timeout to calm down the Clippers with 8:29 left and trailing 97-90. Fueled by defense, Los Angeles went on a 14-4 run to take a 104-101 lead. Nikola Jokic had 32 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists for Denver.
