Video: Kawhi Leonard banks fadeaway jumper for first points with Clippers

Clippers, Kawhi Leonard, Lakers

Kawhi Leonard is officially on the board for the Los Angeles Clippers.

The reigning NBA Finals MVP took a while to get it going in his first official game in a Clipper uniform, getting his first bucket with just a minute left in the first quarter of their opening night match-up against the Los Angeles Lakers.

“The Klaw” got himself in good position at the right block against a capable defender in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. He took a couple of dribbles and initiated contact before drilling a beautiful fadeaway jumper for his first official bucket with the Clips.

Prior to tip-off, Leonard addressed the raucous Los Angeles crowd and was met with a mix of boos and cheers.
