Kawhi Leonard left the Clippers 121-108 Christmas day win over the Nuggets late in the 4th quarter after catching a teammate's elbow to the jaw.  His teammate Serge Ibaka was going up for a rebound when he inadvertently hit him with the elbow.

Kawhi was on the floor bleeding from his mouth before making his way to the locker room.  It was later revealed that the wound in his mouth required eight stitches to close.

Kawhi must have been naughty this year.  It's the only explanation for taking an elbow to the jaw on Christmas day.  He must not have been too naughty because the Clippers still won the game.
