It’s undeniable at this point: The L.A. Clippers are having trouble containing Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks.
Despite the series being tied at two games apiece, it is the Mavericks who hols all the momentum, following a come-from-behind victory in Game 4. The Clippers were up by over 20 points in the first half, but the lead quickly collapsed as Luka Doncic took control.
For the Clippers, while the fingers of blame have been pointed in all directions, Paul George is no doubt the subject of most of the criticism right now. He has played awful in the series and tonight was no different. He dropped just 9 points and 8 rebounds on 21% shooting. But perhaps worst of all is the fact that he failed to make up for it on defense, where he was getting scored on all night.
PG’s lowest moment was when Mavs backup point guard Seth Curry called him a “b***h a**” faking him out and dropping a bucket on him.

Seth Curry is an exceptional player and shooter, but he shouldn’t be owning Paul George like that.
PG is not only an 8x All-Star, he’s also widely recognized as one of the greatest two-way players in the league. Amid all his struggles this postseason, this is the last thing he needs.
For the Clippers’ sake, they better hope he breaks out of his nasty slump.
