Tyronn Lue Rumors
The Clippers had only one player who scored in double figures besides Leonard and George, and that was Zubac, who also had 13 points. Starters Beverley, Batum and Serge Ibaka combined with key reserves Williams and Marcus Morris Sr. to score only 26 points on 11-of-38 shooting from the field (29 percent) and 4-of-14 on 3s (28.6 percent). “I gotta look at it … we didn’t make shots,” Lue said after being concerned about the offense stagnating against Brooklyn’s defense. “I thought Lou got a lot of clean looks that he usually makes, that’s his shot. He didn’t get a chance to knock down (shots). Nic got a couple good shots, you know, a couple easy ones in the first half, a couple tip-ins, layups, he missed a couple easy shots. Marcus, he didn’t shoot the ball as well he’s been shooting it.
“I mean, they called it, so there’s nothing you can do about it now,” Lue said. “I’m not a big complain guy, but [someone] said [Harden] had his arm before Kawhi was able to push off and he said Harden grabbed his … I don’t know because I didn’t look at it. To me, the game’s over and nothing you can do about it, so it is what it is.”
