The Clippers could have been dragged out, but each time they did, George and Man’s perimeter scoring balanced it. Thus, the Clippers ended the first half with a narrowly two-point lead, 54-52.
However, Phoenix had a problem. It is that Leonard’s goal did not explode until the first half. This wish soon became a reality.

Then, Okogi, who connected Paul’s steal with his 6th 3-point shot, broke his own 3-point shot success record. Embarrassed by this, George and Leonard committed consecutive turnovers, but immediately scored together and continued good defense.
Booker, who entered the clutch time, also succeeded in consecutive jump shots and scored points, but Zubac did not allow the opponent to score easily as he defended the paint zone. This led to George’s pull-up jumper. However, Booker broke through Zubac’s defense and succeeded in Andwon, which Leonard responded with a dunk. In the attack that followed, Ayton also responded with a mid-range jumper.
Man, who scored a cut-in 1 minute and 25 seconds before the end of the game with a ball-less movement, pulled out Phoenix’s timeout. Sensing that his time was approaching, Leonard blocked Booker’s layup and scored an Andone with a floater.
Afterwards, the Clippers beat Phoenix by 116-107, 9 points.
