Paul George drops 41 points last night to keep the Clippers playoffs alive for at least one more game. Marcus Morris started the offense for the Clippers as he knocked down early shots to give the Clippers an early 20-5 lead in the first quarter.
Morris who previously play for the Suns went 9 for 16 shooting finishing the game with 22 points. But the point of emphasis of the game was Paul George who has carried the Clippers on his back since Kawhi Leonard went down with a knee injury.
And carry the Clippers he did as, known for his 3 point shooting he went 3 for 5 from the perimeter.
Another key cog to the Clippers offense has been George’s fellow teammate and friend Reggie Jackson added 23 points to help the Clippers push the conference finals to a game 6 on Wednesday nights.
From the Suns perspective I would they play decent in front their home crowd coming back from a 15 point deficit and taking a one point lead 62-61 thanks to a 16 foot shot made by former clipper Chris Paul.
Unfortunately for the Suns that is was it as the Clippers made there next ten shot pushing their on the Suns by twevle 82-70, and eventually winning the game 116-102.
Now the question is can the Clippers build on this performance for game 6 let’s wait and see.
From the Suns though I would like to see more from Chris Paul, Jae Crowder DeAndre Ayton, why I say that is because I feel Devin Booker who scored 31 points in game 5 has been the only Suns players carrying their offense.
If the Suns can get more from other players then I think this series will be done on Wednesday.
