Paul George tonight : 31 PTS 12/24 FG 6/10 3PT 1/2 FT
By - ehddwjkl
No long 2s. He and Kawhi just murdered that 15 footer all night long where Gobert can't get to as easily. Then when Gobert steps out further to contest the mid range they get the chance to go for easy buckets inside.
So weird how they just played exactly in spots where Gobert wanted them to in games 1 and 2. Slow to adjust but at least they do.
they could continue to do that
Kawhi lives in that range, so I expect him to continue to put up. PG has a more complete offensive game imo, but that also means he gets too cute sometimes and overthinks things. Hopefully he can get out of his own head.
Kawhi is shooting 58% from the field 39% from 3 and 90% from the free throw line this postseason. George is at 44/36/89. I'd say Kawhi is better at virtually everything offensively.
can't just look at splits
Asked for 13 but they drew a 31
Friends say he's trying too hard and he's not quite hip...
But in his own mind he’s…
the - he's the dopest trip.
🎵 *give it to me baby* 🎵
Pfizer Vaccinated P
That doesn't alliterate
found the george reddit burner
no OT tonight
That was a bad shot
I am usually memeing on PG but damn that’s a good performance. He overcame his mental hump and delivered in a must win game. Credits to him
Had 5:1 odds on PG with 4+ threes and a clippers win, felt like the threes might be an issue but dude came out and hit 4 in the first half lol this dude looks unbelievable when he’s feeling it
He remembered how to play basketball at a professional level... so naturally he'll for 2-for-9 next game
Pfizer P destroying Shingles Ingles
Shingles Ingles lmao.
Joe Shingles, he shows up at the absolute worst opportunity
Shingles ingles lol, that’s a good one.
I wish shingles on no one.
Playing up to expectations P
Wet Ass P
Lowkey kinda sus 😂 but good for him
He was fantastic tonight, hitting tons of contested shots. Hope he keeps this up.
Damn twitter and this sub hella quiet tonight
People will just say he’ll be back the next game
The Clippers have been the most stressful, but one of the funnest teams I’ve watched during the playoffs.
Every night we play is stressful as fuck
Saw your flair, and I kind of wish the Clippers would move back to San Diego. Love that city and I’d probably become a Clipper fan.
Im almost there…keep goinf
Would love it if the chargers had stayed. Bolts belong in SD imo
I kept yelling "Don't let them talk about you like that Paul!"
Me too bud, and I'm a Lakers fan.
Let's make fun of the Sacramento Kings instead
Leave us alone. We are rooting for Phoenix rn. Long live House SunKings
If the Jazz don't win I hope it's Phoenix. Just not the Nets. Or the clippers.
Give us a small market victory!
I was looking up how big Phoenix is (bigger than Philly, smaller than Houston) and did you know just Brooklyn has basically as many people as all of Chicago?
How many people live in NYC breaks my brain sometimes
"NYC? Those are Rookie Numbers, gotta get those numbers way up."
New Delhi and mumbai checking in
New York has 8.2m people at 1,213 km^2 of land
Metro Manila (where I'm from here in PH) has 14.1m people at 619.6km^2 of land
[According to this](https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/the-world-s-most-densely-populated-cities.html#:~:text=1%20Human%20and%20physical%20factors%20influence%20population%20density%3B,locations%20have%20both%20positive%20and%20negative%20attributes.%20) Oct 2020 World Atlas article, Metro Manila has 4 cities in the top 10 (top 3 are all from here) of the most densely populated cities in the world
I really envy people living in places where the nearest neighbors are 500m away or some shit lol
Thanks for the reminder to watch this (the film is literally titled Metro Manila).
I actually hadn't realized Metro Manila was *that* big. I knew it was big, but not bigger than NYC big. As someone who lives close to NYC, it's kind of hard to imagine those types of figures with it as a frame of reference.
Goddamit your team won the rivalry in a blowout. Just let the Clips have this one.
He's literally trending on Twitter
honestly respect to PG, i have to give to it to him as much as I want him to lose. Kawhi may of had just as strong of a game, but in the first half when he was 4/12 it was George that kept them in the game with 20 points.
dude still has some lingering playoff demons no doubt but he has shaken them off way more than what we saw last season
Why do you want him to lose though?
because the narratives told him to
I feel like the people hate PG because it’s popular is a bit of a cop out
He spent like 2 years salty about dame sending him home, he’s very rarely been endearing since he left Indiana
I don’t hate him though I’d just rather Giannis get his ring or Suns to finally win
so fucking true
"People on instagram and twitter say he's trash so therefore he must be trash! Haha Pandemic P! Please give me likes!"
The dude definitely has said/done some dumb stuff and has had some bad playoff performances, but the amount of hate he gets is just baffling to me.
tf? hes not allowed to just want someone to lose??
If by quite you mean trending then... sure?
I mean compare this to the previous 2 games lol where half of the Jazz’s baskets were posted
Lakers fans quiet too
We are busy photoshopping Dame in Laker jerseys over here give us a moment.
kuzma and a 2nd best they can do
THIS IS GONNA BE FUN
Praiseworthy P showed up, I love it
Haven’t you heard, he’s coming to the Knicks
It’s a shame there’s UFC and celebrity boxing on at the same time
there's another celebrity boxing?
Just a bunch of YouTubers and TikTokers if you're into that, I might be living under a rock but I recognized none of them
Paul George haters in shambles.
They hiding tonight
Gotta sort by Controversial
No, I'm right here.
Ur a bum
oof dagger shot.. no OT tonight
Pack it up boys, we’re done here
this is exactly part of the playoff p package tho. Down to the T, i mean P.
suck us back in with a good game, like the fine fisherman paul is.
Im baited beautifully on this hook rn
It's pretty quiet in here
It's one game he did something and you're all celebrating? It's what he should be doing. And I'm not a George hater
pacers fan hers. i fucking love him still. mu hero
im also drunk sorry for bad spelling
200 plus downvotes last game
_Pipe yo Girl_ PG gang wyd
down 0-2 ??? BTFD and HODL 💎🙌
R/nba and all the major investors putting some MAjor SHORT$ on PG. those expire next Friday. HODL YOU APEz! 💎 🙌
PG is just a distraction by the hedgies to get you to sell $FUNGUY stock.
FNGU is the actual best stock!
PG13 haters activating emergency short ladder attacks
We out here
Fanduel had a 2.5 to 1 odd bet tonight that pg would have 25 and the clippers would win. Ya boy cashed in, am I diamond hands for that?!?!
Only if you bet the winnings on the same outcome next game
He deserves his flowers, tonight was his fucking night
Heard y’all talking shit.
This thread gonna be way quieter though, strange
Should we technically be rooting for the Clippers?
He was so good tonight. 6/10 from 3 is fucking ridiculous
and some of them were so tough too!
r/nba when Paul George plays poorly: "Pandemic P is straight garbage. PG13%"
r/nba when PG plays well:
I've never seen a player of PG's level that gets hated on this much. People talk about PG like he said he was better than prime Jordan and Kobe.
R/nba has a lot of bitter nerds who get offended at anyone hyping themselves up. People stay big mad at the Playoff P nickname it’s hilarious. Also staying mad at the Dame comments lol. It Shout out to everyone thinking they are comedic geniuses making the pandemic P comments too lol. That definitely was still funny the first thousand times lol.
Couldn’t have said it better
Kp wins the pandemic p crown for now..
He called out tonight. Respect
Clutch thy name is Paul George.
Good job mane! I know the memes can be fun, but give credit where credit is due! Did work tn
Playoff P is real?
This is not good for Reddit
Is it good for Bitcoin?
Hibbert Coin Mooning surprisingly.
People seem to be avoiding or not acknowledging his foot injury, including clipper fans.
O/U on how many times PG’s wife gets brought up in this thread?
I’ve got over 3.5 mentions of “strippers” here
This will be downvoted I'm sure
I literally root for guys like PG and Harden (in Houston) and CP3 etc just because this sub is fucking annoying haters.
Same haha, love seeing PG thrive.
I feel like a lot of us started liking harden after giannis got MVP
for real, more focused on tearing people down for bad performances than giving praise and appreciating good ones
I remember a point when it wasn't like that. But this sub has turned into a series of one upping opposing fanbases when you get the chance.
i feel like both this and my team's sub were better before. i don't think it's just nostalgia goggles to remember a time when people around here seemed to actually enjoy the sport of basketball.
I've lived through a lot of social media platforms and discussion boards. There's usually a sweet spot any place achieves in terms of content-to-user ratio for maximum enjoyment before becoming a too-big-to-fail institution or flaming out altogether. It is what it is.
SAME. Kyrie too.
I feel like a hipster right now rooting against him lol. His stock has done a full 180 since his Clippers days. Funny thing is I actually started rooting for the Clippers more after he left the team
it was so funny when he left the clippers and id see people comment things like "i don't know what it is, CP seems more likeable now." like dog you just buy into hate narratives (not that he didn't get hate on the rockets too, when he went to okc was when it really went down)
That series vs the Warriors when SGA made his mark was one of my favorite Moments as a Clippers fan. We had absolutely no right to take the warriors to 6 games, but that team had so much fight.
I loved that team, and I feel like they could have grown into something. But when you can get Kawhi, you get Kawhi.
It's the same garbage that followed Lowry for years before 2019. Yes, he along with PG and Harden had bad series, but the way they're talked about you thought they were Lou Williams calibre in the playoffs.
You love to see it.
I guarantee this will reach the front page
96% upvoted, near the top of the subreddit.
It's the same shit every time an often slandered player has a good game. The same 4 or 5 comments voted to the top every time:
*This will be downvoted*
*It's really quiet in here now*
*Where the haters at*
*reddit real mad*
It's like clockwork. It's as played out as the hatetrain threads.
PG shot 47/41/87 from the field for the season but has an inordinate amount of odd 3/13 type games dragging his average down, which means when he's on he's on
Tbf that also means when he’s off, he’s off.
*WHEN PG PERFORMS ITS ALWAYS A GOOD NIGHT*
This wasn’t his first great game of the series
He had 27/10/6 on 62% TS last game lol
You definitely did not watch last game if you think he played great lol.
Tonight was absolutely a great game and bounce back from him, last game not so much.
well last game was winnable till the play where they let ingles take a wide open 3 , they were even winning at one point. Its not like he started dropping points when they were getting blown out. They were always in the game still the end really
PG has had a pretty good impact outside of his points. But that never gets talked about.
PG kept the game real close until Clippers decide to brick multiple three though.
He played great defense on Mitchell too but Mitchell was just ridiculous hot that night.
Playoff P baby! He was on fire today
Paul George has shown a resiliency I haven’t seen from him since his Pacers day. I’m happy for him, I got off my jokes too but I’ll gladly eat my words with him proving me wrong
Happy for PG. Would love for him to have a great postseason run
where are you PG HATERS
lets fucking go PG
When playoff p actually turns into playoff p
Lets Go PG!
Playoff P showed up today
I fuck with PG now because of how much this sub rags on him. He’s a nice player man got a smooth game
If Paul George can just consistently hit 40-50% from the field the clips will be alright.
You just can’t have him going sub 33 percent in must win games.
Today was nice from him but all it needs to be the norm.
He averages 24/10 on 60% TS?
He makes it up on free throws but when you’re shooting like 4/12 the other teams is going to get a lot of transition buckets. That’s something that TS% doesn’t take into account.
Yes his averages are nice.
But his inconsistency has his team losing games when he’s off and winning by 30 when he’s on.
If he could average those numbers without the super low lows and the really high highs the team would be in a better spot.
PG just broke Reddit
Paul George haters punching the air right now. Got their twitter memes lined up and everything for nothing.
I want to see PG succeed man
pg said fuck /r/nba
He heard y’all talking shit
Put up or shut up P
He activated PG24
I think the next couple of years in the nba are gonna be godly bc we have so many superstars nearing the end of their careers but still have like 5 more years of some pretty good basketball left. Then there are all the youngins that are playing super well so with both of those combined, the competitiveness is gonna be off the charts
Problem is this mans consistency, we all know he can have games like this he's that good. Next game can he produce similar stats or will he regress again and put up a subpar performance. That's what's so head scratching about Paul.
Pandemic P became Pfizer P and vaccinated the COVID Clippers with Kawhi (who doesn’t get a fancy nickname because I can’t think of one).
Notice how no one is talking shit anymore on twitter... i hate that goddamn app
That’s what Utah Jazz fans get for chanting overrated at his ass in game two that unoriginal ass chant take a page out of Knicks fans book and come up with something new ya amateurs smh
better than mitchell
No memes tonight right ???
A top comment said he would go off for 10/24 shooting in the prediction thread
This guy is one of the most inconsistent, frustrating stars I've ever followed.
When that guy who said "PG is pissed. He might go 10/24" was almost spot on
I saw someone say 'Watch out PG is angry, he might go 10/24.' as a joke, well it was kinda close, but 6/10 from 3 changes it.
