It’s no secret that Kawhi Leonard is one of the best players in the NBA at the moment. His dynamic style and great defensive skillset are nothing to screw around with for an opposing team. For the Clippers, it was not such a Merry Christmas as Kawhi took an accidental elbow from his teammate to his mouth/jaw that saw him bleeding on the court.
Not sure I’ve ever seen a face move like this. I hope Kawhi is okay. pic.twitter.com/3QLI8vLAMZ

The video isn’t a pretty sight to see. Kawhi required eight stitches for a laceration on the mouth. Ty Lue says Kawhi should be fine in the near future. What looked like a horrific sight on the court could have been a lot worse. Hopefully, we can see the Claw out there soon to keep tearing apart teams on his way to try and bring a championship to the other team in Los Angeles that is not the Lakers.
