Doc Rivers doesn't expect Kawhi Leonard to play on Sunday against Melbourne as the Clippers likely will rest their star. Rivers said Leonard wanted to play more than the 10-plus minutes he got on Thursday night and felt good afterward. Rookie point guard Terance Mann said he banged up his hip and hamstring but nothing serious. The Clippers could keep Mann out on Sunday.

Kawhi Leonard played 11 minutes in the first half and barring a surprise, likely finishes his first Clippers preseason game with seven points, six assists and one rebound. As he often does, he made things look effortless and displayed some chemistry with his teammates, including finding center Ivica Zubac inside off some pick and rolls.
