In Monday’s Duke Brotherhood playoff action, Luke Kennard and the Los Angeles Clippers managed to stay alive, winning Game 5 116-102. Kennard played 19 minutes but didn’t scratch.

Paul George made up for it though, hitting for 41. Reggie Jackson added 23.

Former Wake Forest star Chris Paul had 22 points and eight assists in the losing effort.

On Tuesday, the Hawks and Bucks crank up again, moving to Game 4 in that series with the Bucks up 2-1. Trae Young is questionable so Cam Reddish and Atlanta will have a lot of work to do.
