If this was what Leonard and George envisioned when they talked about joining forces early in free agency, the Clippers’ All-Star duo joined some elite company with their Friday the 13th performance. They became the 21st pair in NBA history to each score 40 or more in a game, regular season or playoffs, according to Elias Sports Bureau research. “It’s great to have somebody else out there help scoring the ball, making the game easier for myself,” said Leonard, who hit 10-of-24 shots and went 19-for-19 from the line. “We are still trying to build our chemistry out there. We didn’t close that third quarter too great. We still got to improve.”
Then, after hearing “MVP” chants, dapping up each of his former coaches and teammates, Leonard circled his way toward Kyle Lowry to accept his ring and used his big knuckles to rub under each eye. “I don’t think he got sentimental. I think something flew into his eye, honestly,” Lowry told The Athletic with a laugh, debunking any suggestion that the Raptors had managed to break Leonard.
“It’s forever,” Lowry said, before leaving the arena to have dinner with Leonard. “We just created that bond. You go through the journey, all the wins, the ups and downs, the ins and outs, from September, to the trades, to this and that, it’s mixed in the same pot and you just remember that. You remember the journey hanging out with the guys. Luck and (being) injury free, and all that shit plays into it. It worked out for us.”
