George scored a game-high 31 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT) while adding six rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 37 minutes during Sunday's 112-103 loss to the Lakers. Both teams leaned heavily on their stars, as only three Clippers scored in double digits but all three (George, Kawhi Leonard and Montrezl Harrell) delivered at least 20 points. George's 30 was his best performance since Jan. 5, and over his last dozen contests he's averaging 26.5 points, 5.2 boards, 3.8 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.3 steals over that stretch.
George racked up 13 points (5-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds and seven assists in 30 minutes during Thursday's 120-105 win at Houston. George's scoring figures might have been disappointing, but the compensated a rough shooting night with a strong performance both on the boards and distributing the ball. George hasn't reached the 20-point mark in four of his last six games and seems to be trending in the wrong direction of late with averages of just 15.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game during that six-game stretch.
George registered 24 points (8-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 30 minutes during Sunday's 136-130 win over the 76ers. George has scored 24 in consecutive contests while combining for just 28 field-goal attempts. He had combined for only 33 points on 46 field-goal attempts across the four matchups immediately prior to these last two tilts, and George will look to stay hot heading into Tuesday's road bout versus the Thunder.
George compiled 24 points (9-15 FG, 6-8 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes in Friday's 1342-103 win over the Nuggets. The Clippers entered this fight for second place with a fully-healthy lineup for only the seventh time this season, and the crowd inside the Staples Center were treated with a blowout game. Although George's court time was capped at 25 minutes, he led the team in scoring. Even though the team was injury-free Friday, George's health will continue to be a vital issue in the home stretch. As the playoffs approach, we may see both George and Leonard get a few days off, which is obviously bad news for seasonal players who own these elite targets.
George will be on a minutes limit Wednesday against the Suns, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports. George returned to action Monday after missing one game with a hamstring injury, though he was eased back, playing just 21 minutes and tallying seven points, four rebounds, four assists and a block. He'll likely see a slight uptick in minutes Wednesday, though he shouldn't be expected to approach the 30-minute mark.
