The Los Angeles Clippers tied the Lakers for the best record in the league (13-4), after their win against the Oklahoma City Thunder. However, Ty Lue had his share of problems to face after the Clippers extended their winning streak to seven games.

Lue revealed Paul George dealt with a hamstring injury during Sunday’s matchup vs. the Thunder. The news came after Patrick Beverley was forced to leave the game with knee soreness.

George has had a great season so far, averaging 24.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.2 steals per game in 2020-21 for the Clippers team.

Ty Lue’s squad is looking great right now with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George carrying the offense. They are on a seven-game winning streak tied with the Lakers for the best record in the league.

The Clippers are set to start a six-game road trip on Tuesday against Atlanta. In case Paul George is not available, Ty Lue is expected to lean to Lou Williams, Marcus Morris and Luke Kennard to cover for his absence.
