Paul George is cooking. Sometimes the defensive effort isn't ideal, but I'm not sure it would really matter.

Hanging around a 15-17 pt deficit. George and Leonard are just hitting everything. Ayton is putting together another nice game and is being big on offense. Been to the line a few times, nice offensive rebounds. We need some stops and 3s tho. Not impossible but someone has to get break it open.

Suns have had tons of opportunities to quit on this one, but they have put themselves in a position to be right in the game for the fourth. If the clippers cool off a bit, and the suns start to hit some shots that they have been, they can win this.

Booker is due this quarter only shooting 7 times so far .

He really doesn't look the same player this season, a little hesitant, looking to make too many bad passes even though his passing is more reserved this game with only 1 TO vs 6 assists.

I love the effort. They've never hung their heads and kept fighting.

So the lineup of Cam, Book, Mikal, Cam and Dario getting it done on both ends. Really started with the defense tho that led to offense. Dario gave them a different look defensively and came up big on a few rebounds and a corner 3.

Thank you Cam hitting his last two 3s
Ibaka with two of his own to annoy me as I didn't mind him shooting early in the clock

Suns are hunting the 3 too much now. Just get the buckets that are available.

What was going on with the trash talking between CP and George? I've been watching with the sound off.

Ugh. I’m watching delayed. I’m at 50-24 with 9:41 left in the 2nd. Laying an egg on my bday. Oh, well. Can’t win them all. Although, Clips can’t miss and Suns can’t buy a bucket. Suns are playing with no energy. Looks like it’s going to be a long night.

Clippers ready to melt down if the Suns can get over the hump here - but that's a big if. Clips keep hitting big shots

George and Paul were batting in the post...on the first possession George looked like he extended his forearm but they called the foul on Paul. Next time down, Paul drew the offensive foul but got hit in the leg/groin area(?) and went back to the lockerroom.

Next time down George attacked off the dribble and Payne came over on the help and blocked his shot but fell down on top of him and George got up yelling at Payne. Book got involved and they had words but nothing really...double tech on George and Book. George was annoyed from the Paul stuff tho and had been chirping. The Payne block and fall set him off.
