CLIPPERS HEAD COACH TY LUE
: The Key to the Comeback Win
“I think defense. You know, hold them to eighteen points in the third quarter. Eighteen in the
fourth quarter that was huge for us especially on nights where we struggled to score the basketball.
Like I said our defense is going to be where we hang our hat and holding this team to 93 points was
huge for us. 36 points in the second half was really good on nights that you can’t make a shot you
got to be able to guard and defend. Like I said our guys are going to compete on that end every
night”.

: Scoring 8 points in 1:30
“That’s just how the game played out. Was able to get to my spots, rose over the top, knocked down
some shots. When it’s that time of the game when you want to be as aggressive as possible, either
you’re gonna make shots or pass it to your teammates and they make shots. Just want to make a
play.”
CLIPPERS FORWARD KAWHI LEONARD
: 31-point season high, feeling back to old self
“Yeah, I already felt good. It’s hard to play in 24-minute stints or go to 26, but we made shots
tonight. Season high in shot attempts as well, if you shoot the ball, you should get more shots. PG
[Paul George] was out, Reggie [Reggie Jackson] was out, Zu [Ivica Zubac] was out, so just made it to
be more assertive and aggressive throughout the whole game.”
CLIPPERS FORWARD TERANCE MANN
: Adjusting to Porzingis’ length
“I think we just you know, realized, or figured out that it is almost an illusion when he [Porzingis] is
closing out at you. He is so big and so tall it looks like he is there to touch, but he is really not, so
either shoot it or drive it. We talked about that at the half, and then adjusted second half. Photo Courtesy
