Paul George:

    When the 2019-20 season began, the Los Angeles Clippers were favorites to win it all. However, when it came to the Playoffs, the Clippers crumbled in just the second round. Moreover, both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George put forth an awful performance in the series decider Game 7. In fact, they couldn’t even score a single point in the fourth quarter! That led to the Denver Nuggets advancing to the WCF. They overcame the highly rated, Clippers team and a 3-1 deficit. However, what’s done is done, and the Clippers have to focus on coming back strong next season. Paul George tried this approach after the Game 7 defeat, but it was met by several eye rolls. Now, according to...
    Since the successful acquisition of Jimmy Butler last summer, the Miami Heat have been active on the trade market searching for another superstar. Though they are currently establishing a very impressive performance and have managed to surpass the expectations from them in the 2019-20 NBA season, they are still highly expected to seek major roster upgrades this fall. One of the most intriguing targets for the Heat in the 2020 offseason is Paul George of the Los Angeles Clippers. After suffering a second-round exit in the 2020 Playoffs, rumors have started to swirl around George and his future with the Clippers. There may only be a minimal chance that the Clippers will consider trading their second-best player, but if they...
    Will Kawhi Leonard allow the Clippers to trade Paul George this offseason? Despite entering the 2019-20 NBA season as the heavy favorites to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy, the Los Angeles Clippers still ended up suffering a second-round exit in the 2020 Playoffs. While they have yet to give up with their dream of winning their first NBA championship title, rumors are circulating that they are planning to make some roster changes this fall. In a recent article, Jovan Buha of The Athletic talked about the fate of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and the Clippers in the 2020 offseason. As most people are expecting, Buha revealed that the Clippers are still planning to continue building the team around Leonard,...
    The Los Angeles Clippers run in the Playoffs is an accurate depiction of expectation versus reality. Though fans wanted to witness an all-Los Angeles Western Conference Finals, the Clippers ruined those chances. Nobody expected them to lose that series after they gained a 3-1 lead against the Denver Nuggets in the Conference Semi-Finals. The Nuggets made a solid comeback, which took the series to Game 7. In the showdown, the Nuggets thrashed the Clippers and instead became the underdogs that played the Lakers. However, Paul George still showcased some optimism about his team and had some words of wisdom for them before they entered the off-season.  Paul George leaves teammates unhappy Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports There were a lot...
    After successfully acquiring Paul George and Kawhi Leonard last summer, the Los Angeles Clippers have managed to turn themselves from an average team to a legitimate title contender in the Western Conference. With two All-Stars and a quality supporting cast, most people considered the Clippers as the heavy favorites to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy in the 2019-20 NBA season. Unfortunately, they failed to live up to expectations. Aside from failing to capture their first NBA championship title, the Clippers were even unable to advance to the Western Conference Finals after being upset by the Denver Nuggets in the second round. After suffering a huge disappointment, the drama has started to build around George and the Clippers. Aside from...
    Paul George’s pleas for players to remain committed to the Clippers and return to the franchise next season didn’t go over well with all of his teammates, according to a report by The Athletic. George made his comments inside the locker room following the loss to the Nuggets in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals last week. This was right after the Clippers’ third straight setback to complete an alarming collapse after they took a 3-1 series lead. According to the report, some of George’s teammates were bewildered and began rolling their eyes as he spoke. The overall feeling was that George’s actions in the series didn’t line up with his postgame vows. The remarks came immediately after George...
    Paul George just got sent home from the Playoffs yet again. While he ended his streak of first-round exits, blowing a 3-1 lead in the second round cannot feel nice. Especially when people point at you as one of the culprits. Paul George’s playoff form has been critiqued for years, while he tries to build a mythology around ‘Playoff P’. The great players elevate in the Playoffs, and PG13 has a self-awarded nickname for that elevation. However, the nickname is now associated with mockery. PG13 struggled all Playoffs before finding a rhythm against Denver. That made no difference, as he collapsed in Game 7 and failed to make it to the Conference Finals. George had more turnovers (5) than...
    After suffering an early exit in the 2020 Playoffs, rumors have started to swirl around All-Star forward Paul George and his future with the Los Angeles Clippers. With his inconsistent performance in his first postseason with the team, there are speculations that the Clippers may consider blowing up their roster and make George available on the trading block this fall. Once they start entertaining offers for George, several teams that are in dire need of additional star power are expected to make an immediate call to the Clippers, including the Boston Celtics. As long as Danny Ainge is the general manager and president of basketball operations, the Celtics will always be linked to rumors involving star players. They may have...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s one of the largest investigations in the history of the St. Paul Police Department — solving the crimes that happened during the unrest following George Floyd’s death. There were tens of millions of dollars worth of damage to more than 300 businesses in St. Paul. Last month, we introduced us to a special police task force trying to track down the people responsible. WCCO’s Erin Hassanzadeh shows us the progress investigators are making.

    As with any good collapse, the Clippers offered a side of drama to go with their playoff choke. Paul George and Montrezl Harrell got into a heated exchange over George’s refusal to take responsibility for a turnover during Game 2 of their series against the Nuggets, Yahoo Sports reported Wednesday. The incident came during a timeout in the second quarter, according to the report, after George had coughed up a pair of turnovers on bad passes in less than a minute. On the second, George tried a half-court pass to Harrell, who was being guarded by Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. Murray stole the pass, which led to the confrontation 22 seconds later during a Clippers timeout.

    The Los Angeles Clippers have some chemistry issues stemming from a Paul George altercation with Montrezl Harrell. The Los Angeles Clippers rolled into 2019-20 with championship aspirations, but Kawhi Leonard and Paul George swiftly put those aspirations on ice by underperforming during a playoff series against the Denver Nuggets in which LA blew a 3-1 advantage. Doc Rivers’ team never looked like a full-functioning unit that was really jelling, and Chris Haynes confirmed that everything wasn’t rosy behind closed doors during this series. Haynes confirmed that George and big man Montrezl Harrell, who won the 2019-20 Sixth Man of the Year Award, got into a shouting match after Game 2 in this series, with both star players hurling multiple expletives...
    After enjoying a 3-1 lead over the Denver Nuggets in their recently concluded playoff matchup, the Los Angeles Clippers dropped three straight games to lose the series, with the Nuggets now getting ready to face the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. During this series, two of the Clippers’ top players — Paul George and 2019-20 Sixth Man of the Year awardee Montrezl Harrell — allegedly got into an argument following an on-court miscue. On Wednesday afternoon, Yahoo Sports‘ Chris Haynes reported on the “collapse” of the Clippers, which was purportedly caused by poor chemistry and a lack of “rapport” — the latter of which was evident as early as Game 2, when George and Harrell reportedly had...
    It seems like the Los Angeles Clippers turned a blind eye towards Nuggets’ potential. The Nuggets had already proven themselves by recovering from a 3-1 deficit in round 1 against the Utah Jazz. Even though the Clippers were definitely the more talented team, their chemistry just wasn’t right. They could not calm themselves in a pressuring situation, which eventually led to the Nuggets being the only team in the NBA’s history to have recovered from a 3-1 deficit twice in a single postseason.

    Kawhi Leonard and Paul George during a game in November 2019. Tony Gutierrez/AP Images The LA Clippers were eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. The stunning second-round exit makes the 2019-20 season a failure for the Clippers, who were championship favorites after going all-in around Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. The Clippers traded almost all of their future draft picks for Leonard and George, and both can become free agents one year from now. The Clippers have few ways to improve their roster and will likely retain a talented team that also just came up well short of a championship. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Paul George accepts the Los Angeles Clippers failed to live up to lofty expectations but insists the season never felt like a “championship-or-bust” scenario. The Clippers were among the favorites to become NBA champions after bringing in superstars George and Kawhi Leonard but their wait for a maiden conference finals appearance continued after a disappointing evening in Orlando on Tuesday. George had just 10 points on 4-of-16 shooting and Leonard put up only 14 as the Denver Nuggets ran out 104-89 winners in a Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals, becoming the first team to recover from consecutive 3-1 series deficits in the same postseason. While the defeat hurts for George now, he remains convinced the team will...

    Will the Clippers make it an all Los Angeles Western Conference finals? Or can the Nuggets complete an incredible comeback? It’s time for a win-or-go-home Game 7 to close out what has been a surprisingly tight playoff series. MORE: Paul George insists Clippers still in “driver seat” After Los Angeles took a 3-1 lead with a 96-85 victory in Game 4, it was widely assumed the Clippers would battle the Lakers for a spot in the 2020 NBA Finals.

    Paul George is adamant the Clippers remain in the “driver seat” despite another alarming collapse against the Nuggets in the Western Conference semi-finals. The Clippers blew a 19-point lead Sunday as the Nuggets forced a deciding Game 7 with a 111-98 victory. The collapse followed LA giving up a 16-point lead in a Game 5 loss. George, however, still likes the team’s chances of progressing to a conference finals series with the Lakers. “It’s positive,” George said when asked about the mood among the roster. “This group’s staying together. We still in the driver seat. It’s not a panic mode. We have a Game 7. I like our odds with our group. We put ourselves in this position and it’s on us to get...
    As the Denver Nuggets took on the LA Clippers in Game 6 of their second-round matchup, Paul George stood out with his heroics! This game demanded high-intensity basketball from both teams, and they didn’t fail to deliver. PG13 produced a moment of brilliance in the third quarter to assert his authority in the game.  The Clippers came into Game 6 on the back of a loss in the previous fixture. Thus, they carried more pressure than their opponents, who’ve already survived a Game 7 in the 2020 NBA Playoffs.

    Despite winning three of the first four games of the second round of the 2020 Playoffs, Paul George and the Los Angeles Clippers are yet to completely eliminate Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets. After a strong start, the Clippers suffered back-to-back losses in Game 5 and 6, allowing the Nuggets to even the series, 3-3, and force a Game 7. Knowing how the Nuggets took down the Utah Jazz in the first round, some people think that the Clippers might be in danger of facing elimination before their highly-anticipated faceoff against the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. Though the Nuggets have already found their rhythm and are gaining more confidence, George remains optimistic about the Clippers’...
    Family members of George Floyd have been notified that multiple employees of a Minneapolis healthcare system have improperly accessed the man’s medical records sometime in the last 30 days, an attorney for the family said. Attorney Antonio Romanucci told KARE 11 that family members received a letter from Hennepin Healthcare, notifying them of the breach. Romanucci said the letter says those involved “no longer work at the organization.” He said the letter provided few other details, including how many people were involved and what information was accessed. Romanucci said the family is considering suing Hennepin Healthcare. “They feel it’s a continued assassination of George Floyd, his character,” Romanucci said. “It’s a non-stop issue.

    Sometimes you need the entire Klaw, and sometimes you only need a single finger. During the fourth quarter of Monday night’s Game 3 between the Clippers and Nuggets, Denver guard Jamal Murray tried to throw down a one-handed dunk over Los Angeles forward Kawhi Leonard, but the two-time Defensive Player of the Year rejected Murray. As TNT’s Reggie Miller pointed out several times on the broadcast, Leonard swatted the attempt away with just his middle finger.

    Looks like the Denver Nuggets were too exhausted to put up a fight after 7 exhausting games in round 1 of the playoff series. It was only till the first quarter that they seemed to be head-to-head with the Los Angeles Clippers. After that, it was all downhill, and the Clippers won with a 23 point lead. It’s no surprise though because we knew the Clippers were way better even before entering this series. The underdogs really need to bounce back in the next game.

    The Western Conference Semifinals will finally begin tonight. After the Denver Nuggets beat the Utah Jazz in a seven-game series, they are now up against the LA Clippers. The Nuggets come in as the underdogs after being the lower seed but the Clippers have shown signs of slipping. Except for Will Barton (knee) and Vlatko Cancar (foot), the Nuggets have their whole team fit for the Semifinals. After playing two games off the bench, they could introduce Gary Harris to the starting lineup. So they can start with Jamal Murray and Gary Harris as the guards, Jerami Grant and Paul Millsap as the forwards, and Nikola Jokic as the center. Although Harris has been atrocious offensively, he has been...

    Paul George was practically absent for the first 4 games of the series, putting up garbage stats. But Paul George put a stop to his critics after a historic performance in game 5 vs the Mavericks. He scored 35 points in just 25 mins with an efficient 12-18 shooting display. Even when the basketball world was bashing George for the consecutive poor matches, his teammates believed in him. Clippers center Ivica Zubac was confident in George prior to game 5. “We all know who he is, we all trust him. He’s one of the best players in the league. He knows that, we know that. We’re just going to give him support. Even if he’s not shooting well, he’s doing...

The Clippers star struggled mightily in Games 2-4 and revealed Tuesday night he was dealing with anxiety and depression while being confined to the NBA’s bubble. But George came back with a force Tuesday, getting his mind in a better spot and dropping 35 points in a Game 5 win over the Mavericks. “Whatever it was, the bubble got the best of me,” George said an a TNT interview after the game. “I was just in a dark place.

I’m old enough to remember when Paul George was entirely undefined. When he was just a long, raw, ball of potential whose primary job was to take some of the defensive load off Danny Granger.

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Paul George certainly found a rhythm. The All-Star guard scored 35 points as the Los Angeles Clippers rolled past the Dallas Mavericks 154-111 on Tuesday night to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round Western Conference playoff series. George had shot 29% in the series and endured fans’ wrath on social media. He said he spoke to the team psychiatrist before Game 5. “I mean, whatever it was, the bubble got the best of me,” George said. “I was just in a dark place. I really wasn’t here. I checked out.

    After four close games between the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks, the favorite finally found some separation on Tuesday. The Clippers absolutely decimated the Mavericks, 154-111 to take a 3-2 lead in the series. More importantly, they got many of their struggling players back on track. Paul George and Montrezl Harrell combined for 56 points, and the team as a whole hit 22 3-pointers to not only take the lead in the series, but to send a statement to the underdog Mavericks that, despite the series so far, these teams are not close to even.  The Mavericks, meanwhile, have to go back to the drawing board after one of their worst losses of the season.

    Paul George dropped 35 points on the Mavs in Game 5, but Twitter still let him have it Social media hasn’t been kind to Paul George, even after he had a huge bounce-back performance to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to an easy blowout win over Dallas. None of that matters, as NBA Twitter doesn’t react well to being proven wrong. Four games into the playoff season, George was playing horribly, leading to overreactions from fans and pundits alike. Despite the small sample size, we wondered (aloud, mind you) if George could really be the No. 2 to Kawhi Leonard in LA. The Clippers paid a small fortune for George, and it was suddenly all for naught. Oh, how spoiled...

While the Mavericks, still without an injured Kristaps Porizingis, ran up a small lead in the opening minutes, the Clippers responded with an overwhelming run and ended the first quarter up by 19. The Mavericks were able to intermittently cut into the Clippers lead, but they were never able to truly make it a game. After three awful games, Paul George bounced back in a...

    Paul George was on a mission in Game 5, and Tim Hardaway, Jr.’s foul only enraged him more George was at the brunt of many jokes on social media after his performance in the Clippers’ first four playoff games against the Dallas Mavericks, even earning the nickname ‘Pandemic P’ in response to his self-coined ‘Playoff P’ epithet. PG showed exactly why he was acquired for such a lofty price from Oklahoma City last summer, joining forces with Kawhi Leonard as the Clippers ran away with Game 5. In the third quarter, George attempted a drive to the rim that was sure to finish in the same way many of PG’s endeavors did on the night — a made bucket. Hardaway,...

    It’s already the best series of the first round of NBA playoff games, but in case you needed another reason to tune into the Clippers-Mavericks battle there’s a whole lot of personal baggage attached to this matchup. And it didn’t take long for that baggage to resurface on Sunday after a clash between Clippers forward Paul George and Mavericks guard Seth Curry. Curry, who is the younger brother of Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry, drove to the hoop early in the fourth quarter of Dallas’ wild 135-133 overtime win, drew a foul from George and hit the layup. He turned to George and called him “b–h a–” before walking to the line and hitting the bonus free throw. It’s...

    It’s already the best series of the first round of NBA playoff games, but in case you needed another reason to tune into the Clippers-Mavericks battle there’s a whole lot of personal baggage attached to this matchup. And it didn’t take long for that baggage to resurface on Sunday after a clash between Clippers forward Paul George and Mavericks guard Seth Curry. Curry, who is the younger brother of Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry, drove to the hoop early in the fourth quarter of Dallas’ wild 135-133 overtime win, drew a foul from George and hit the layup.

    Paul George conceded he is “having a hard time” in the Clippers’ first-round series against the Mavericks. George went 3-of-14 shooting, including 1-of-7 from three-point range, providing just nine points as the Clippers lost 135-133 in overtime to a Luka Doncic-inspired Mavericks, who levelled the Western Conference series at 2-2. George, who once referred to himself as ‘Playoff P’ due to his ability to deliver in the postseason, has the lowest effective field-goal percentage (34.8 per cent) of any player to have taken at least 50 shots in these playoffs. “I’ve just got to stay with it. It’s a marathon, man, I’ve got to stay with it,” George told reporters. “I thought early on I got a rhythm and then towards the third...
    Paul George is having a rough series for the Clippers. The Dallas Mavericks picked up a dramatic Game 4 victory over the LA Clippers on Sunday thanks to a buzzer-beating 3-point dagger from Luka Doncic. A last-second finish may not have been possible if Paul George had scored more than nine points. The Clippers star went 3-for-14 from the floor and 1-for-7 from 3-point range. This followed up his 11-point performance in Game 3, with the difference being the Clippers actually won that game. The first-round series is now tied 2-2, and George offered up a perfect performance review following Sunday’s game. Paul George: “To be honest, in hindsight, if I shoot the ball better, this series would be a lot different.”...
    Clippers forward Paul George has been terrible to start the postseason, and the “Playoff P” moniker he has carried for years is now being turned against him. George entered Game 4 on Sunday having shot 29.3 percent from the field and 23 percent from 3 in his first three contests of the series. Los Angeles held a 2-1 advantage in its first-round matchup with Dallas because teammate Kawhi Leonard carried the team on his back. George then produced another dud, scoring seven points on 2-for-12 shooting in regulation and finishing with just nine points overall.  Lou Williams stepped up off the bench with 33 points in regulation to push the game to overtime. But George’s struggles — and magic from Mavericks star...

It’s hard to tell whether Paul George is struggling or thriving when he’s playing, one of the smoothest swingmen in a bubble or a raucous arena. One of the reasons he’s the perfect No. 2 to Kawhi Leonard is his ability to seamlessly go from facilitator to dominator without much of a change to his demeanor, with no need to send out the bat signal — when he’s at his best.

    Paul George responded to criticism of his offensive struggles at the expense of James Harden. Paul George heard all the noise about his performance Friday night in the Los Angeles Clippers 130-122 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.

He wanted to make it clear that he’s no James Harden. He doesn’t always have a knack for shooting the ball and scoring, but George prides himself on being effective at both ends.

    WASHINGTON — The use of National Guard reconnaissance planes in four U.S. cities to monitor the widespread protests earlier this year didn’t violate rules against the military collecting intelligence on Americans, a Pentagon report has concluded. The investigation by the Air Force inspector general found that the planes were used to gather information about crowd size, crowd flows and fires but they did not monitor individuals. The probe was ordered by Defense Secretary Mark Esper in response to questions within the department and Congress about whether the military illegally conducted surveillance of American citizens during the unrest after the death of George Floyd. The flights in late May and early June came as President Donald Trump was calling for tougher...
