Clippers Lose to Phoenix

The Clippers opened its season with huge wins over the Los Angeles Lakers and an even bigger road win over the Golden State Warriors but suffered its first loss on the road Saturday night to the Phoenix Suns by a score of 130-122. Montrezl Harrell came off the bench to lead Los Angeles with 28 points and seven rebounds, Kawhi Leonard scored 27 points with 10 assists and eight rebounds and Lou Williams had 23 points in a losing cause. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers had this to say about his team as reported by the Associated Press;
"You have a couple of these games where you're just late on everything," Rivers said. "I thought we were late on everything. On the offensive end, we had no pace. We deserved to lose."
