Serge Ibaka destroys every Paul George hater after Game 5 vs. Jazz without Kawhi Leonard
Los Angeles Clippers superstar Paul George put on a dazzling performance to quiet all the hate and teammate Serge Ibaka made sure everyone knows about it. Ibaka, who’s been ruled out for the remainder of the 2021 playoffs due to his back, quickly went on social media to help all the PG haters apologize to the 31-year-old after his Game 5 explosion against the Utah Jazz.
The Clippers center posted a ‘Paul George Apology Form’ on Twitter after George dropped 37 points and 16 boards to help the Clippers steal Game 5 against Utah, 119-111.

George picked the perfect time to break his ‘Pandemic P’ nickname as the spotlight was on him on Wednesday with the Clippers’ other superstar in Kawhi Leonard missing in action due to a knee issue. With Leonard being out indefinitely, it’s now up to George and the rest of the supporting cast to carry the load for LA as they try to upset the league’s top-seeded team.
And, thanks to PG’s Game 5 eruption, they’re now just one win away as they head home to Staples Center to host the Jazz for a crucial Game 6 battle.
George has been on everybody’s crosshair for a few seasons now, especially since he’s been known to have disappointing playoff stints since the early days of his career. Now that he’s on the pinnacle of his career and without his two-time Finals MVP teammate, George has the perfect opportunity to sway the narrative to his favor and shut all his naysayers up.
Is ‘Playoff P’ finally here to stay?
