The Los Angeles Clippers couldn’t close out the series against the Denver Nuggets in Game 5. Kawhi Leonard, who had a game-high 36 points, described Game 5 as a ‘learning lesson’.

He then said the team needs to focus on the next game.

“It’s a learning lesson. You got to stay even-keeled and prepare to play another hard-fought Game 6.” The Clippers blowout a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter, after dominating for almost 36 minutes.

Despite that, Doc Rivers’ team is still leading 3-2 in the WC semifinals series and will need one more win to advance to the Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history.
