Ty Lue hinted that the Los Angeles Clippers may switch Kawhi Leonard onto Luka Doncic in Game 2.
“He has to carry a lot of the load offensively, and we have three or four guys that we can put on [Doncic] and mix it up,” Lue said Sunday. “But, I think you’ll get what you’re asking for come Tuesday.”
Doncic was most often defended by Nicolas Batum. When Leonard defended Doncic, he didn't attempt a field goal or a free throw.
Lue said the bigger issue for the Clippers was their communication on defense.
“I’m too embarrassed to say what the number was with points we gave up on our miscommunication and not following the game plan,” he said.
