With the LA Clippers trying to hit their stride in their second-round NBA playoff series with the Utah Jazz, Kawhi Leonard appeared to be at the height of his powers with a massive dunk late in the first half.
Los Angeles entered Monday night's Game 4 at Staples Center hoping to pull even with the Jazz and got off to a strong start, as the Clippers built their lead as high as 29 points.
With fans at Staples Center still limited, the most noteworthy reaction might have been on the faces of the stunned Jazz players. But the reverberations certainly were felt far and wide.
