NBA: Clippers the perfect fit for Powell

Norman Powell feels he can "fit perfectly" in the Los Angeles Clippers team after scoring 28 points on his debut in Sunday's 137-113 defeat to Milwaukee Bucks.

The Clippers are 30/1 to win the NBA Championship outright, while the defending champions Milwaukee can be backed at 13/2.

Powell starts well for Clippers

The 28-year-old joined the Clippers last week from Portland Trail Blazers and impressed on his debut with 28 points and four rebounds in 24 minutes from the bench but it wasn't enough as the Bucks came away from LA with the win.

The Clippers are currently without star pair Kawhi Leonard and Paul George due to long-term injuries.

Leonard is yet to feature this season due to an ACL injury and head coach Tyronn Lue recently admitted the forward may not return until next term, while George has missed 23 games with an elbow injury.

Powell may not be able to work alongside George and Leonard this term, but he has played alongside the latter previously, winning the championship with Toronto Raptors in 2019, and he feels he will fit in well with the Clippers when they have everyone available.

Powell ready to fit in

"Literally for all my career, I have been in every single role on the team," said Powell, via ESPN. "The guy fighting and scratching trying to get into the rotation.

"Being in a rotation, being taken out of a rotation, playing alongside Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, playing alongside Kyle and Kawhi, playing off of them in Toronto.

"So I think I can fit perfectly in here, with PG and Kawhi."
