Coming off two consecutive impressive performances in Games 5 and 6, George couldn't buy himself a bucket in Game 7, shooting just 25 percent from the field and finishing as a -20 on the night. The Clippers now find themselves on their way out of Disney World as the Nuggets complete the comeback after facing a 3-1 series deficit. They'll face the Lakers in the Western Conference Finals beginning Friday night.
Paul George recorded 33 points (9-21 FG, 4-9 3PT, 11-11 FT), six boards, three assists, five steals, one block, and three turnovers in Sunday afternoon's loss to Denver.
George and Leonard dominated per usual, but got very little help from the rest of their teammates, costing the Clippers a shocking second straight loss. It even looked as if they had the series wrapped up, as they led by 19 points in the third frame. But the resilient Nuggets had other plans, exploding in the second half to force a Game 7. George will need to make a strong impact on both sides of the ball if the Clippers hope to avoid blowing a 3-1 lead and advance to the West Finals.
Paul George stuffed the statsheet with 26 points (8-18 FG, 4-10 3PT, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and one steal in Friday's 111-105 loss to the Nuggets.
George was a bit inefficient but had his second-best scoring effort of the series. He's been a bit hot and cold this postseason but this outing was pretty in-line with the 21.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3.9 assists he averaged this season. He's a risky DFS play given his inconsistent play so far.
Paul George recorded 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3PT), three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in Wednesday's Game 4 win over the Nuggets.
George fell into early foul trouble and had his worst scoring and rebounding performance of the series, logging just 27 minutes. George has disappeared in a few games during these playoffs, scoring under 15 points in 40% of his games. His volatility makes him a risky DFS play, although he has hit the 30-point mark once in each series.
Paul George registered 32 points (12-18 FG, 5-7 3PT, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, four assists, two steals, and three turnovers in Monday night's close win versus the Nuggets.
George looked terrific tonight, efficiently firing in jumpers to lead the Clippers to a 2-1 advantage in the series. Denver is already facing an uphill battle against this gritty defensive team, and it certainly doesn't help when both George and Leonard are hitting on all cylinders.
