With Kawhi Leonard sidelined for home game, Clippers lose to Magic

Kawhi Leonard sat on the bench in a tracksuit and could only offer encouragement to his Clippers teammates. He wasn’t playing to manage a right knee injury.

The Clippers could have used his help on the court against the Orlando Magic on Saturday afternoon at Crypto.com Arena.

With Leonard out, the Clippers lost 113-108 to the Magic, who had five players scoring in double figures.

Paul George led the Clippers with 30 points.

With Markelle Fultz scoring 28 points and Wendell Carter Jr. contributing 27 points and 12 rebounds, the Magic swept the Clippers’ two-game series.

The Clippers complete a series of back-to-back games Sunday night in Portland, with Leonard supposed to play the Trail Blazers.

“He’s out tonight,” Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said before the game. “That’s all I know.”
