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