Three observatio­ns on the Clippers

- — Broderick Turner

■ Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said he kept Kawhi Leonard out with a sore right foot as a precaution­ary measure. And because the Clippers haven’t been able to practice or have shoot-arounds, Leonard hasn’t been able to test the foot. Lue said Leonard remains day to day.

■ Serge Ibaka, who had been the starting center, has been out for about a month because of a back injury. He didn’t join the Clippers on their three-game trip. “He’s progressin­g,” Lue said. “Everyone is asking about him. ... He’s feeling better, but I really don’t have a timetable on when he’s going to come back.”

■ The Clippers shot just 24.1% from three-point range, going seven for 29. But the three-pointer by Reggie Jackson with 19 seconds left tied the score, and it obviously was the biggest shot of the game. Jackson was three for six from three-point range.
