Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers are tackling the NBA's regular season at their own pace, occasionally sacrificing short-term form for the long-term goal of a championship. The Clippers have accepted the shifting lineups and uneven efforts that come with regularly resting their vulnerable standouts, Leonard and Paul George, and prioritizing health over regular season dominance. Los Angeles practically sleepwalked through a 109-100 win over Western Conference-worst Golden State Warriors on Friday without George, but that bland effort does not change the big picture.
