The Los Angeles Clippers blew past the Sacramento Kings in a really dominant fashion (138-100), as they secured their third consecutive victory in the last three games.

In the post-game presser, Ty Lue spoke on his team’s second-half performance, especially on the defensive end. The Clippers limited Sacramento to 39 points on just 37.8% shooting from the field to cruise to an easy 138-100 blowout win.

“We challenge our guys at halftime just to be better defensively and in the third quarter, I think team settled down and defended,” Lue said.

The Clippers went on a 37-16 run in the third quarter to put the game away. Paul George had 26 points, while Kawhi Leonard was pretty impressive with 27 points in 28 minutes of action.

The Clippers climbed the Western Conference ranks in the last five games going 4-1 having the second-best record in the West behind their Los Angeles rivals.
