The Los Angeles Clippers are still in good shape and have added their fourth consecutive victory over the Miami Heat (125-118) despite the absence of four of their five usual starters.
Against the current NBA runners-up, and without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George among other absences, the Clippers dominated the game thanks to the offensive inspiration of Marcus Morris (32 points) and the ‘double-double’ of Lou Williams (18 and 10 assists).
For his part, Serge Ibaka contributed 7 points, 9 rebounds, 9 assists and 1 steal in almost 20 minutes of play, this time more focused on defense over rival pivot Bam Adebayo, who went to 27 points and 12 rebounds.
However, the top scorer for the Heat was Jimmy Butler, author of a ‘triple-double’ (30 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists) that did not help to avoid the defeat of Miami. In this way, the Clippers (21-8) are still in the fight for the first place in the West with their neighbors Lakers (21-7) and the leaders Utah Jazz (23-5).
