Los Angeles Clippers small forward Paul George is really struggling against the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the 2020 playoffs.
George, who is one of the best players in the NBA, is shooting just 29.0 percent from the field and 22.2 percent from beyond the arc in four games against the Mavs while averaging 15.3 points.
The Clippers are tied with the Mavs despite being the second seed in the West and Dallas star power forward Kristaps Porzingis missing Game 4 with knee soreness.
After George's awful night in Game 4, a fan by the name of “vert world” created a petition to send him overseas. It appears Clippers fans have lost their patience with PG-13.

PG-13 has to turn it around quickly or else the Clippers are going to get upset by the Mavs. Kawhi Leonard didn't recruit George to request a trade from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Clippers just to be an average player in the playoffs. The six-time All-Star has to get it together and start playing like the superstar he is.
During the 2019-20 regular season, George put up 21.5 points, 5.7 boards and 3.9 assists. He shot the ball pretty well despite undergoing offseason surgery on both shoulders. The swingman shot 43.9 percent overall and 41.2 percent from the 3-point line.
The Clippers need that Paul George to return as soon as possible.
