LA Clippers star Kawhi Leonard earned the first triple-double of his career in Friday night’s 122-117 comeback victory over the Miami Heat.
Leonard finished the game with 33 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, bringing the Clippers back from a 15-point deficit, while handing the Heat just their second home loss of the season.
Playing without Paul George (hamstring) and Patrick Beverley (groin), both Leonard and the Clippers got off to a sluggish start.
After going 2-for-11 to begin the game, Leonard closed strong — scoring 17 points in the third quarter and hitting clutch shots and free throws in the final minutes.
