Paul, Leonard ‘di pa rin makakalaro sa Game 2

(Pilipino Star Ngayon) - June 23, 2021 - 12:00am

PHOENIX, Philippines — Wala pa ring Chris Paul sa line-up ng Suns at Kawhi Leonard sa roster ng Los Angeles Clippers sa Game Two ng kanilang Western Confe­rence finals series ngayon.

Nasa ilalim pa rin ng COVID-19 health and safety protocols ang 11-time All-Star na si Paul habang nagrerekober si Leonard sa kanyang sprained right knee.

Itinala ni Devin Booker ang una niyang career triple-double na 40 points, 13 rebounds at 11 assists para banderahan ang Suns sa 120-114 paggiba sa Clippers sa Game One.

“(Paul) talks on the court, off the court, in the timeout, in the huddle, no-huddle, screaming, running down the court. It’s just something. And to not have that voice, it was kind of weird,” ani Cameron Payne na sumalo sa trabaho ni Paul.

Tuluy-tuloy naman ang pakikipag-usap ni Leonard kay Clippers coach Ty Lue para sa kanilang game plan sa oras na bumalik siya sa aksyon.

“He likes to know the game plan so when he watches the game, he can understand what we’re doing good and doing bad, and let the coaches know, let the players know,” sabi ni Lue.

Posible namang hindi rin maglaro sa Game Two si veteran defender Marcus Morris dahil sa right knee injury nito.
