Paul George drops Chris Paul with embarrassing crossover
Late in the third quarter of the Western Conference Finals Game 5, Paul George embarrassed Chris Paul big time with a shifty crossover that sent the Suns star sliding and tumbling to the side lines. To add embarrassing incident to the injury, the Clippers forward nailed the huge triple to complete the play and retain the team’s lead over the motivated Suns.
While Ty Lue’s squad struggled to repel the Suns early on, PG13 completely took over the game and was unstoppable for most of the contest. He finished with a staggering stat line of 41 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, and three steals for the Clippers–which are all team-highs. George will certainly be happy with his savage move on Paul, but he’ll definitely be more ecstatic to get the win and cut the Suns’ lead over the Clippers to just 3-2. Hopefully, this performance will give PG and LA some much-needed confidence as they try to stage another epic comeback.
