Clippers erect largest winning margin in team history vs. Hawks

Clippers, Hawks, Doc Rivers, Paul George

The Los Angeles Clippers showed no mercy to the Atlanta Hawks en route to their biggest winning margin in franchise history.

Paul George and Co. dismantled the Hawks to the tune of a 49-point blowout, ending the game 150-101. It was their largest win ever, which surpassed their 48-point victory over the Los Angeles Lakers back in 2014.

Moreover, the Clippers 150 points is the second-most points they scored in a game in team history.

George finished with 37 points on top of four rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block. He also recorded a 58.6 percent shooting clip — including 54.5 percent from three — and was perfect from the charity stripes with his 11 freebies.

Lou Williams and Jerome Robinson were also phenomenal for the Clippers, scoring 25 and 21 markers respectively. They also combined for 10 rebounds and seven assists.

Atlanta got off to a slow start and was never able to recover from the Clips 13-point lead in the first quarter. Trae Young was limited to just 20 points on 4-of-16 shooting, with no other Hawks player scoring more than that.

Hawks rookies De’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish had 12 points apiece, but they shot a combined 9-of-29 from the field.

The Clippers improved to 8-5 on the season and moved up to sixth in the Western Conference standings.
