Give Solomon Hill a ton of credit there. First guy all year to bite not at all on Kobe's pump fake.

Mike Trudell

First 3-pointer for the #Clippers simply because Solomon Hill went under the screen. LaC up 7-6

Do over: Solomon Hill and Paul George will someday make a great wing tandem as defenders. George Hill at the point will help, too.

Man, that's tough. Air ball. Solomon Hill knows how that goes.

Rather good defense by Solomon Hill there

Kevin Pelton

Solomon Hill has done a terrific job defending Rudy Gay in the fourth quarter. Growing before our eyes.

A couple #Pacers fans behind scorer's table are doing the T…Y... celebration after Solomon Hill goes to the line. Okay.

If only Solomon Hill had some sticky stuff on his hands… had a good lane to pick off a pass but #Blazers maintain possession & call TO

Solomon Hill's corner three is pure and stops the #Blazers run for a bit. #Pacers down 54-49
