Now that is certainly the highlight of what was a massive night for Paul George and the Clippers.
While Ty Lue’s squad struggled to repel the Suns early on, PG13 completely took over the game and was unstoppable for most of the contest. He finished with a staggering stat line of 41 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, and three steals for the Clippers–which are all team-highs. More amazingly, he did so in an efficient 15-of-20 shooting from the field and 8-of-8 from the free-throw line.
As for Chris Paul, he had 22 points and eight assists. Unfortunately, he was ineffective for the Suns from behind the 3-point arc, finishing with an abysmal 0-of-6 shooting clip from deep.
George will certainly be happy with his savage move on Paul, but he’ll definitely be more ecstatic to get the win and cut the Suns’ lead over the Clippers to just 3-2. Hopefully, this performance will give PG and LA some much-needed confidence as they try to stage another epic comeback.
