Stephen A. Smith has had it with the Los Angeles Clippers as he is “sick” of them. As Los Angeles Clippers have been losing back-to-back games and Mr. Smith has just had it enough. Los Angeles Clippers are 3-7 in their past 10 games. Also, they are on a 5-match losing streak, losing the 5th match to Sacramento Kings 127-128.

Many are blaming Russell Westbrook to be the reason but, against Sacramento, he finished with 27 points, two rebounds, and 10 assists in the Clippers’ 128-127 loss to the Kings. At the buzzer, Paul George had a chance to win, but he fell short. The Clippers suffered a heartbreaking defeat after limiting the Kings to only one field goal in the last three minutes.

Stephen A. Smith spoke on ESPN’s First take after Clippers’ loss to Golden State Warriors. He was so pissed, He said, “I watched this game last night, uhm.. Ladies and gentlemen excuse my language. Los Angeles Clippers got their a** kicked. Period! Golden State gave it to them, without Steph Curry but still living you know what, the Clippers make me sick.”

Kawahi Leonard has played only 39 games out of 66 for Los Angeles Clippers

Despite the Clippers’ recent troubles, superstar forward Kawhi Leonard will continue to sit out one leg of back-to-back games as the season progresses.

According to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk, Leonard stated during the Clippers’ 115-91 defeat to the Golden State Warriors on Thursday that the Clippers would stay with the strategy they have in place all season in order to keep him healthy for the playoffs.

Leonard has only played in 39 of the Clippers’ 66 games this season, losing time due to nagging ailments and injury management. Leonard was sidelined for the entire 2021-22 season after injuring his ACL during the playoffs in 2021.

While Leonard has missed more games than the Clippers would like, he has been extremely effective while healthy and in the lineup this season.

Kawhi averages 23.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.9 three-pointers made, and 1.4 steals playing 33.1 minutes per game. Nevertheless, Leonard’s frequent absences have made it tough for the Clippers to establish their groove, and they are now 33-33 on the season and on a 5-game losing streak.
