The Los Angeles Clippers were able to add to their winning column on Wednesday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans thanks to Paul George and Kawhi Leonard that combined for 55 points.
George, who has one of the best starts of his career shooting-wise, explained his hot-shooting streak after the disappointing performances in the Orlando “bubble”.
“Just shooting it with confidence. Really just knowing the shots I’m going to get. I know what to look for, I know what to expect, I know how the shots are coming,” George said.
George finished the game against the undermanned Pelicans with 27 points, on 8-of-16 shooting, and five made threes. He also added seven assists and seven rebounds.
The star swingman is shooting 51.6% from deep in the first 11 games of the season. He made 47 threes out of his 91 attempts so far in his 2020/21 campaign.
As a result, he has averages of 25.2 points per contest shooting 49.7 from the field. Furthermore, he scored 55 points in the last two games helping the Clippers secure victories in both of them.
