Los Angeles (AFP) – Marcus Morris Sr. scored 22 points and Ivica Zubak’s double this season with 16 points and 14 rebounds, as the Los Angeles Clippers prevented the New Orleans Pelicans from securing a berth on Sunday. Championship play with 119-100 wins.
Morris scored four three-pointers with the Clippers, who fired 21 from 44 long shots. It’s the first time in franchise history that they’ve scored at least 20 points in consecutive games. Los Angeles had 23 three-pointers and set a franchise record in their 153-119 victory on Friday at Milwaukee Stadium.
The Clippers made all eight shots from the ocean in the first quarter. According to Sportradar, this is the first time since at least 1996 that Los Angeles has finished fourth overall with seven or more attempts.
Paul George scored 15 points, seven assists and five rebounds in his third game with the Clippers, which had six men in the two numbers. All of George’s field goals were 3-pointers.
CJ McCollum finished with 19 points and Brandon Ingram finished with 15 for the Pelicans, who marked the end of his three-way winning streak. New Orleans could have secured a place in the playoffs with a win after Denver beat the Los Angeles Lakers in another game of the day.
