George Scores 33, Clippers Beat Lakers 116-109 on Ring Night
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Clippers rallied past the Los Angeles Lakers on the NBA champions’ ring ceremony night for a 116-109 victory. Paul George scored 26 of his 33 points in the second half and Kawhi Leonard added 26 points. LeBron James scored 22 points and Anthony Davis had 18 for the Lakers just 72 days after they finished off the Miami Heat in the NBA bubble. The Lakers returned from the shortest offseason in league history and received their championship rings honoring the franchise’s 17th title, but they couldn’t keep up with George and Leonard down the stretch.
