iPhone : Kawhi Leonard on his reaction to Darius Bazley’s “Hey hey hey” impression of him: “I think somebody sent it to me. I just take it as love. People love me, I guess, and like the things I say.”

iPhone : Doc Rivers once again implied Paul George will miss 10 games. When asked about deciding on a starting lineup; he said his goal before PG returns was to “get through the 10 games.”

Twitter Web App : The Clippers defeat the Hornets 111-96 to improve to 3-1. Kawhi Leonard's final line: 30 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocks. Lou Will had 23 pts, 4 reb + 4 ast. Landry Shamet had a season-high 16 pts.

Next up: the Utah Jazz in Utah on Wednesday.

Twitter Web App : Through four games, Kawhi Leonard is averaging 27 points, 6.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.3 blocks in 28.8 minutes per game. MVP-caliber numbers.

Twitter Web App : A much better defensive quarter from the Clippers, who lead the Hornets 86-74 through three. If this continues, they should be able to stretch this to 20+ and rest Kawhi for the final six or seven minutes of the game.

Twitter Web App : Zu is a good rim protector. He isn't elite yet and is still learning, but in certain matchups like this one, he can be an imposing force against an opponent's interior offense.

Twitter Web App : Clippers lead the Hornets 57-54. LA's 50% shooting and 13 FTAs has kept them ahead, but they should be up by more. The defense has been better than the Phoenix game, but there are many of the same issues: late closeouts, misreads on switches and not enough boxouts, etc.

Twitter Web App : That one-handed bullet from Kawhi through three defenders to Zubac for an and-1 layup is in the conversation for his best assist of the season.

Twitter Web App : Atrocious end to the quarter for the Clippers, who lead the Hornets 29-28 at the end of one. Hornets closed the quarter on a 17-4 run. A lot of the bad habits from the Phoenix game seeped through in the last few minutes.

Twitter Web App : Landry Shamet is 4-for-4 from deep to start tonight's game. Encouraging start from him -- particularly the quality of looks he's getting. All four have been with nearly five-plus feet of space.
