…Kawhi is having a tough go being defended by Killian Hayes. He’s making him really work. – 11:20 PM

When you thought Kawhi Leonard returning meant relief for the scoring droughts, yet Pistons go on 9-0 run that sees Clippers go nearly 4 minutes without a point pic.twitter.com/zpfEcZxU5311:03 PM

Clippers up 9-8 mid first quarter. It’s Black Panther Wakanda Forever Night here, btw. That’s the real reason Kawhi is here pic.twitter.com/G5EnIbk7sT10:53 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
If this is my last tweet on this app, I wanted to go out letting everyone know that Kawhi’s season high in minutes this season is 21:17 and it’s something to note as his return gets under way, as Ty Lue was mum pregame on whether Kawhi could play more minutes. – 10:53 PM

Kawhi’s first basket comes on a turnaround fadeaway over Killian Hayes to give the Clippers a 9-6 lead. – 10:51 PM

StatMuse @statmuse
Twitter since the last time Kawhi played a basketball game:
— Wasn’t owned by Elon Musk
— Still had 7,500 employees
— Had no Twitter Blue check
— Employees still can go in offices
That was 3 weeks ago. pic.twitter.com/0QWK4kUwzt9:35 PM
