Nothing went the Clippers way in the Alamo City Friday night, as the San Antonio Spurs coasted to a 2-1 lead in this best-of-seven series, beating LA 100-73.

Newly-appointed Defensive Player of the Year  Kawhi Leonard showed off his offensive chops tonight, dropping 32 on the Clippers. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker combined for a measly 10 points--a testament to how easily the Spurs were able to dominate the guys in red.

The Clippers struggled offensively straight from the opening tip. Chris Paul shot only 3-11 from the field for 7 points, while Blake Griffin added 14 on 6-15 shooting. It was so bad for the Clippers, Lester Hudson and Ekpe Udoh closed out the game on the floor. The team shot a combined 34% from the field, while the Spurs scored on 53% of their shots.

The Spurs carry a 2-1 series lead heading into Game 4 in San Antonio on Sunday afternoon.
