Los Angeles (USA) – If there was a victory that the Los Angeles Clippers needed to get, it was tonight on Monday, when they beat the Miami Heat 125-118, despite the fact that they played without their stars, forwards Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, both injured.
Zubac was the bench leader, contributing 22 points with eight rebounds that made the difference by becoming the winning factor of surprise.
While guard Lou Williams also stood out as a starter with a double-double of 18 points and 10 assists, and point guard Terance Mann reached 15 and captured seven rebounds.
Spanish Congolese center Serge Ibaka played 20 minutes in which he scored seven points, but did a good job under the hoops by grabbing nine rebounds.
The Clippers’ victory (21-8) was the fourth in a row and they remain in third place in the Western Conference and the Pacific Division, but only half a game behind the Los Angeles Lakers, who rested.
Two other players, center Bam Adebayo and guard Tyler Herro, each scored 27 points with the Heat, who did not prevent the Miami team’s second consecutive loss (11-16).
While Herro had five rebounds and two assists. Forward Duncan Robinson finished with 13 points and completed the list of four Heat players who had double-digit numbers.
