The Clippers still had enough time on the clock to get the winner or tie the game.
Kawhi had the ball and LeBron was marking him, forcing him to pass the ball to PG.
PG then let fly a 3, but LeBron had done enough to put him off.
Lakers ultimately ended up winning the game 103-101.
It was the perfect NBA restart game and fans would be hoping for more such action in the coming days
