Reggie Miller’s advice to Paul George after Clippers’ collapse vs. Nuggets
George was terrible in Game 7, as the All-Star scored just 10 points and didn’t register a single point in the fourth quarter. He also hit the top of the backboard on a corner 3-point attempt.
Now, per Mark Medina of USA TODAY Sports, Miller says George needs to do some soul searching this offseason.
Reggie Miller on the Clippers' collapse: "Paul George needs to take a look at himself."

As one of the few NBA players making max dollars, Paul George is supposed to be one of the best two-way players in the NBA.
However, he came up shorter than mini-me in Game 7 against the Nuggets, a performance which will surely make him the subject of constant slander until the 2020-21 season starts.
To be fair to George, Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard was awful in Game 7 as well. The two-time Finals MVP didn’t score in the fourth quarter either and finished with 14 points in 43 minutes.
However, Leonard has never choked in the playoffs until Game 7 against the Nuggets, while George has a history of not playing well in pressure games.
Reggie Miller, one of the greatest shooters in NBA history, is of the firm belief that George needs to look at himself in the mirror this offseason and figure out mentally why he can’t perform when it matters.
