Lou Williams shared his thoughts on the Clippers having to play through absences, just like they did against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.

The Clippers had to play without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George (NBA Health and Safety protocols) and Pat Beverley (knee soreness).

“We can’t go out there and try to be Kawhi, PG, or Pat. We gotta be ourselves and play as a team,” Lou Williams told reporters, via Tomer Azarly of Clutchpoints.

Williams and the Clippers were defeated by the Hawks (99-108) and saw their seven-game winning streak come to an end (13-5).
