“He plays both ends of the floor”: Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard hails Russell Westbrook’s impact as “Hall-of-Fame point guard”

The Los Angeles Clippers have signed former NBA MVP Russell Westbrook, who completed his buyout with the Utah Jazz during the 2016-17 season. While it took some time for Westbrook to settle in with his new team, he has since become an essential member of the franchise.

Westbrook has been handling playmaking duties for the Clippers, allowing Kawhi Leonard to focus on leading the team to victory with his performances on the offensive end of the court. Leonard recently spoke highly of Westbrook’s impact on the team, praising his contributions both on and off the court. The fact that the two stars are on the same page bodes well for the Clippers during the postseason.

“Just having a Hall-of-Fame point guard on the floor,” Kawhi said. “He brings energy to the team, he brings pace. He plays both ends of the floor. Defensively, he rebounds the ball and can guard shots. He’s been doing a great job.”

Westbrook’s statistics for the Clippers have been solid, with averages of 14.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.4 blocks per game in just 13 appearances for the team. Fans can expect these numbers to only improve as Westbrook becomes more comfortable in his role with the Clippers.

Overall, Westbrook’s addition to the Clippers has been a positive one, providing the team with an experienced and talented player who can handle the ball and create scoring opportunities for his teammates. With Leonard and Westbrook working together, the Clippers have the potential to make a deep run in the postseason and contend for a championship.

Paul George Suffers Knee Injury: Leonard and Westbrook to Step Up for Clippers Playoff Push

During the Los Angeles Clippers’ game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, star player Paul George suffered a knee injury, causing him to leave the game. The injury was confirmed as serious, and the Clippers are worried about his ability to play in the upcoming playoffs

George is expected to miss at least two to three weeks of action, leaving the responsibility to keep the team from losing too many games on the shoulders of Kawhi Leonard and Russell Westbrook.

Whether Leonard and Westbrook will be able to fill the void left by George remains to be seen. It is uncertain how long George will be out and what his condition will be when he returns. The Clippers will need to rely on their depth and teamwork to overcome this obstacle and continue their push for the playoffs.
