Paul George addressed his altercation with Devin Booker and Chris Paul in the game between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Phoenix Suns.

Due to the altercation, George and Booker received technical fouls.

“I don’t talk, I play my game…It’s dudes talking. Never heard people talking [before], it’s never been directed towards me but for some reason it’s a lot of mouth. It’s fine…I’ll go through the fire…As long as we win.

I was talking to the ref, CP jumped in, it escalated. I’ve never had any words, never any altercation, there was always peace when I am on the floor but for whatever reason, there’s a lot of chirping and people living in the past…I’m in a new situation, different mindset,” George told reporters about Booker and Paul, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.

George had 39 points in the game (15/24 shooting, 7/10 from beyond the arc), leading the Clippers (5-2) to the 112-107 win over the Suns (5-2).
