Kawhi Leonard Following Game 7 Loss: Clippers Must 'Get Smarter As A Team' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 16, 2020 5:53 am

Kawhi Leonard blamed a lack of team chemistry for the Los Angeles Clippers' 104-89 loss to the Denver Nuggets in game 7.


"That’s when it comes to the team chemistry, knowing what we should run to get the ball in spots or just if someone’s getting doubled or they’re packing the paint...get smarter as a team. Basketball IQ got to get better," said Leonard after the game.


Leonard finished with 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists. He shot 1-11 in the second half, which represents the worst shooting half of his career with a minimum of 10 shots. 


Paul George agreed with Leonard's assessment, saying that the Clippers "didn't have enough time together."


Several Clippers players reportedly asked out of the fourth quarter due to fatigue.

Kawhi not used to low IQ teams... I'm sure being on the Spurs and winning a chip with a Raptors team full of high IQ guys spoiled him
