Clippings: The top plays of the Clippers season

ESPN selected its favorite play of the 2019-20 Clippers season thus far, and it’s hard to top.

The 2019-20 Clippers season is already one of the most successful in franchise history. The Clippers were on pace to finish with the second seed in the Western Conference, their highest-ever rank to end the regular season, and most people had them pegged to advance at least as far as the conference finals for the first time.

The configurations of the postseason are no longer set in stone, but there is plenty to celebrate about the Clippers season thus far. ESPN picked its favorite plays from each team this season, and their Clippers selection is a highlight that transcends this fan base.

ESPN selected the moment when Patrick Beverley swiped the ball from LeBron James near the end of the L.A. Christmas Day clash. Whether it was a block or a steal doesn’t really matter. The Clippers were up by three, and Beverley sealed the win against one of the best players in the game.

It is an excellent choice, and I have no complaints. But as long as we’re on the topic of favorite plays, here are some others.

Paul George’s game-winner against the Thunder was so poetic. To secure the win against his former team in the second game of his Clippers career felt like a symbolic changing of the guard.

The entire final sequence of the Clippers’ home game later that week against the Rockets was appointment viewing, capped off by Kawhi Leonard’s game-winning jumper from his favorite spot on the floor.

There are many Leonard dunks that also deserve mention (the one over Daniel Theis immediately comes to mind) as well as Lou Williams clutch shots, but we can’t be here all day. If you have a suggestion you’d like to add to the list, please let us know in the comments. It is always a good time to watch Clippers highlights.
