Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’

first_imgIn 22 playoff games during the past four postseasons prior to this one, George averaged 27 points per game on 42.4% shooting. He opened the series by shooting 10 for 22 en route to 27 points. And he made two of his first five shots Sunday — but then he missed his next seven and didn’t score again until there was 2:06 left in overtime.He said his confidence is intact, he just can’t find a rhythm. It might be easier, he theorized, if the Clippers were playing in Dallas instead of relatively empty gyms in the bubble at Walt Disney World Resort.“The shots that I’m taking, I’m expecting to make,” George said. “Once I see it go through and I find that rhythm, I’ll be right where I want to be. Problem is, just getting to that point. Usually, you’re in a hostile environment and that usually helps you get to that moment, so I just gotta find that.“I’ll fight through it, I gotta help the team, and I’m aware of that.”HARRELL, DONCIC TALK IT OUTMontrezl Harrell and Luka Doncic indicated there were no hard feelings after their jawing in Game 3 made news. During Friday’s game, in which the two players both received technical fouls for engaging in a verbal sparring match, Harrell also appeared to punctuate a basket by directing an insult at Doncic that included the phrase “white boy.”Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Alexander: Playoff series takes a turn Clippers weren’t expecting What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Regarding the @dallasmavs @LAClippers game last night & the words we all know that came out of Montrez Harrell’s mouth.. pic.twitter.com/pLfZ1ryfll— Jay Williams (@RealJayWilliams) August 22, 2020 After video of Harrell mouthing the words gained traction online, where it drew some criticism, including from ESPN’s Jay Williams, Harrell and Doncic talked briefly and embraced at midcourt before Sunday’s game.And after his heroics lifted Dallas to victory, Doncic told reporters he didn’t consider the incident in Friday’s game to be a big deal.“A lot of emotions on the court, especially in these playoffs,” said Doncic, with a shrug. “Sometimes you say things you don’t want to say. He apologized, I respect it, so no problems.”Harrell wasn’t among the Clippers presented for a Zoom videoconference postgame, but on Twitter, he sought to add his perspective the incident as it was described on ABC, when it was stated that the NBA had talked with to Harrell, as confirmed by a league source.“No one spoke wit me to do anything,” Harrell tweeted. “I approach him and cleared the air from all the outside nonsense that was being said. Nothing but respect for Luka he understood the heat of the battle and he said it didn’t bother him only RESPECT.”In a separate tweet, Harrell included Doncic’s comments and wrote, “Much respect cuh 2-2 let’s enjoy the rest.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory PreviousDallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic (77) drives against Los Angeles Clippers’ Marcus Morris Sr. (31) during the first quarter of Game 4 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series, Sunday, Aug. 23, 2020, in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

(AP Photo/Ashley Landis, Pool)ExpandLike a player raising his hand after a whistle, volunteering to be assessed the foul, Paul George did his best Sunday to take ownership of his role in the Clippers’ current predicament — which could be remembered as but a blip if they can collect themselves and get on through to the second round of the Western Conference playoffs as they’re expected to.For now, the 2-2 split in their series with the Dallas Mavericks feels burdensome, as the Clippers — listless for long spells in Sunday’s 135-133 overtime loss — know they have work to do. That includes George, who is well aware his shooting is an area desperately needing improvement.For the third consecutive game, the pride of Palmdale had a tough time scoring Sunday, when he was held to nine points and shot 3 for 14 and 1 for 7 from 3-point range. That extended a three-game drought in which he’s just 10 for 47 (21.2%) from the field and 4 for 27 (14.8%) from deep — well off of his season averages of 43.9% and 41.2%, respectively.“If I make shots, this series could be a little different,” George said via Zoom videoconference. “And that’s the obvious, of course. That’s what it just comes down to … I’m gettin’ looks, gettin’ shots, the floor is open, the defenders aren’t great, but I’m just having a hard time finding the ball through right now.” Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum If gone get the story get it right all I ask, no one spoke wit me to do anything I approach him and cleared the air from all the outside nonsense that was being said. Nothing but respect for Luka he understood the heat of the battle and he said it didn’t bother him only RESPECT https://t.co/MOKlkT3CAH— Montrezl Harrell (@MONSTATREZZ) August 23, 2020last_img read more
