The core of the Clippers, Leonard, also ushered in a comeback, showing his most handsome behind-the-back shot, still having a Jordan-like feeling. The Lakers launched a counterattack in this quarter of the game, constantly approaching the score, and the point difference was narrowed bit by bit.

The Lakers entered the rhythm of the Clippers again this time. As Kennard hit a three-pointer, the point difference was again widened to 4 points by the Clippers, with 5 minutes and 39 seconds left until the end of the game.
After the suspension came back, the Lakers relied on Walker to create damage, and Westbrook stole two goals in a row, but the Lakers continued to have problems at the last moment. The Lakers eventually lost the game and suffered a two-game losing streak.
