You don’t get a Los Angeles Clippers game without some monster dunks. We know what to expect, and we got it...

From Meyers Leonard.

Wait, what? Yup, it was Trail Blazers rookie Meyers Leonard who got four of his eight points on the night with powerful dunks. I’m not sure this game was exactly a coming out party for the center out of Illinois, but there were glimpses of what could be. If he continues to develop, Portland may have a real center on the roster they can lean on for years.
