The Celtics finish off the Clippers late in 117-112 win
Just before tipoff against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, Kawhi Leonard was scratched from the LA Clippers’ starting lineup. The media members covering the game, along with the TNT broadcast crew, were perplexed, as Leonard appeared healthy during pregame warmups, and Head Coach Tyronn Lue said nothing about an injury during his pregame press conference.
The Celtics have had trouble at times this season holding on to leads late in games. Kemba Walker had 25 points and six assists, and the Celtics took advantage of a late scratch of All-Star Kawhi Leonard and held off the Los Angeles Clippers 117-112 on Tuesday night. Jaylen Brown finished with 18 points.
