It’s not the first time in the last week Phoenix Suns center Aron Baynes has been embarrassed on defense. After being posterized by Memphis Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant on Wednesday, the 6-foot-10 Australian big man would fall once again: this time at the hands of Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard.
Faced with a mismatch on the perimeter, Leonard would drive right and then cross back left which would send Baynes flying, ankles broken.

Rather than shoot, Leonard would then swing the ball to teammate Lou Williams who would pass it to Paul George who would hit a three from the corner.
The Clippers would end up with a 120-99 victory over the Suns. Leonard would end the game with 20 points and six rebounds in 27 minutes. Leonard, George and Williams would combine for 64 points for Los Angeles. On the other hand, Baynes ended with just two points and four rebounds for Phoenix.
