Kawhi Leonard was asked by a reporter if the Los Angeles Clippers ‘choked’ in Game 6 vs. the Denver Nuggets. The two-time NBA champion said his team “just went cold” in the third quarter.

“We just went cold. Went cold in that 3rd quarter. That’s it. Kept getting to the paint, passing the ball. Got a little stagnant. Just couldn’t make shots,” Kawhi said.

The Clippers will need more in order to get to the Conference Finals for the first time in the history of the franchise. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will need a bigger contribution from the role players to get through the Nuggets.

Game 7 will take place on Tuesday.
