I’m not sure about future first-ballot Hall of Famer, but the entire form is hilarious. PG’s epic performance had him carrying the first option mantle, which usually belongs to Kawhi Leonard. Not only did he look every bit the part in Game 5, he set a Clippers franchise record that not even the Klaw has done. George finished with an epic line of 37 points, 16 rebounds, and five assists while being uber efficient from the field.
Playoff P showed up big time.
He is the first Clipper with a 35/15/5 playoff game in franchise history. pic.twitter.com/3Xm8posHBX

The Clippers are going to need this Paul George to show up every single night from now on. They have at least two more games if this series extends to seven, and they’ll be without the services of Leonard up until the Western Conference Finals. Los Angeles must do all they can to end things in Game 6 at home, else they’ll have to finish the job in Utah, where the Jazz have been one of the best home teams in the league.
But after Paul George’s epic Game 5 on the Jazz’s home floor, maybe the Clippers star can provide an encore performance.
