Kawhi Leonard To Miss Game 5 Of Western Conference Finals

The LA Clippers are in a 3-1 hole heading into Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. Kawhi Leonard has missed six-straight games dating back to the second round of the playoffs, making things even tougher for the Clippers. 

On Sunday evening, the team announced that Leonard would officially miss Game 5 as the series heads back to Phoenix. He’s recovering from an ACL injury that has turned LA’s postseason outlook upside down. 

Already in an uphill battle, the Clippers will look to chip away at their deficit without their best player, looking to pull off the rare 3-1 comeback. 

Paul George will look to continue to carry the team in Leonard’s absence, as he’s averaged 27.5 points, 10.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game in the Western Conference Finals.
