Kemba Walker scored 25 points and six assists for the night when Boston Celtics handed a loss to Los Angeles Clippers 117-112 who were without All-Star Kawhi Leonard for the night. 18 points were added by Jaylen Brown, 14 each by Jayson Tatum and Payton Pritchard and Celtics cruised to third back to back win for the first time since January. Clippers on the other hand have lost 5 of their 8 games where Leonard was not present.
In this match he was ruled out of the line up due to back spasms. Instead Paul George was given the charge to lead the team but could only master32 points and Reggie Jackson replaced Leonard and could add 25 points and seven assists to help the team.
