Kawhi Leonard played just his sixth game this season as he returned to action for the Clippers after being out for a couple of weeks.
The 31-year-old forward scored 16 points, grabbed 6 rebounds and dished out 2 assists in 28 minutes of play against Hornets. Leonard also hit a game-winner.
“Felt good to be back,” the two-time NBA champion said, per Tomer Azarly. “I love this game of basketball. I don’t think nobody loves playing it more than me. Maybe watching, but I love this game. It gives me join when I’m able to play.”
This season Leonard is averaging 10 points, 4 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 21 minutes per game.
