Ty Lue enthused "that's what it should look like" after the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Sacramento Kings 131-117 on Wednesday.
The Clippers have yet to fully gel since the arrival of James Harden in a blockbuster trade from the Philadelphia 76ers, but they bounced back from a loss to the Denver Nuggets in style.
Kawhi Leonard and Harden combined for 60 points, with the latter providing six assists, as the Clippers eased to a victory that took them 10th in the Western Conference.
"That's what it should look like, guys," Lue said. "That's what it should look like right there. Now, we've got to duplicate it again and again and again."
Harden finished with 26 points, and nailed five of his eight 3-pointer attempts.
"I think James just wanted to prove to y'all that he is James Harden. And so he can do that on a nightly basis," added Lue.
Harden said: "I live in the real world, where I control what I can control, focus on what I got to do every single day and that's all I can control."
One consistent performer so far for the Clippers has been Kawhi Leonard, who has played in all 17 games this season.
"I mean it was years trying to get through that wall," Leonard said.
"I've been dealing with this right knee injury for a while, since 2016-17, even going through the Raptors' [championship] run, that being my first year going so far [in the playoffs with knee issues], just put another toll on it.
"Now I feel good coming out of games and I don't feel anything. So just want to keep going and that's my goal is just to stay healthy and the rest will play itself out."
Next up for the Clippers is a meeting with the Golden State Warriors, who are one place below them in the West.
