Paul George tonight : 31 PTS 12/24 FG 6/10 3PT 1/2 FT

toofine

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.


DarkKirby14

they could continue to do that


Ferris_A_Wheel

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.


TheChodedOne

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.

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


CIark

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


HidekiMatsuyama

He remembered how to play basketball at a professional level... so naturally he'll for 2-for-9 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.

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?

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


thegaykid7

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.


duplicatesnowflake

Goddamit your team won the rivalry in a blowout. Just let the Clips have this one.


jawadhaque089

He's literally trending on Twitter


Scatteredbrain

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


sinchichis

May have/may’ve*


Rushik925

Why do you want him to lose though?


dweakz

because the narratives told him to


chunkyI0ver53

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


sucadico

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.


factcheck_

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.

[deleted]

for real, more focused on tearing people down for bad performances than giving praise and appreciating good ones


tacoTs

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.


SnooPies5622

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.


GirlsLastTour

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.

IAmNotKevinDurant_35

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


SnooPies5622

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)


stu17

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.


EarthWarping

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.


JeffTXD

You love to see it.


throwaway11221122-

I guarantee this will reach the front page


speculativekiwi

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: *Fuck /r/nba* *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.


CaucasianAsian8

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


Pndrizzy

Tbf that also means when he’s off, he’s off.


EnjoyableTeddy

*WHEN PG PERFORMS ITS ALWAYS A GOOD NIGHT*


Smekledorf1996

rolandthegiant

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


Mikegetscalls

PG has had a pretty good impact outside of his points. But that never gets talked about.


bachh2

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.


KimBulgogi

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

ClutchCobra

I fuck with PG now because of how much this sub rags on him. He’s a nice player man got a smooth game


SuddenHarshTruth

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.


TRAE-YOUNG-BETTER

He averages 24/10 on 60% TS?


venitienne

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.


SuddenHarshTruth

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.

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


OculusBlurr

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.

When that guy who said "PG is pissed. He might go 10/24" was almost spot on


Yteburk

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.
