VIDEO: Clippers star Paul George’s immediate reaction to Terance Mann’s shocking Game 6
Can you believe it? Terance Mann just put the Los Angeles Clippers on his back for Game 6 in a performance of a lifetime and Paul George couldn’t be prouder.
The Clippers All-Star sounded like a proud father when asked about Mann’s epic showing during the postgame interview with Rachel Nichols. The ESPN reporter asked the forward if he knew Mann had this kind of game in him. George didn’t even have to think about his answer:
“Yes, yes! We been on him to shoot the ball. He works on his game so much, one of the best young players I’ve been around, reminds me a lot of myself.”
"I looked up and saw I had 34." – @terance_mann
"That was a while ago." – @Yg_Trece 😂

For all Clippers fans, you just love to see it. With Kawhi Leonard out, LA was virtually counted out of this series as Paul George was left to overcome his playoff demons. Playoff P more than answered the call with amazing production in Games 5 and 6, but even he’ll agree that Terance Mann is the man of the hour, no pun intended. George tallied 28 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, and three steals as the second leading scorer for the Clips in Game 6.
Ty Lue and Clipper nation gave Terance Mann a standing ovation after his career-night 👏
