Skip Bayless is in disbelief at the horrible shooting numbers Chris Paul, Devin Booker, and Paul George put up in the Game 4 Clippers loss.
Game 4 between the Clippers and the Suns was the definition of what a rock fight would look like is translated to the NBA. A grueling and drawn out second half that had both teams shooting a combined 24-80 in that half made it feel as though Paul George and company, despite their abysmal shooting may even this series up.
The narrative of the ‘down 0-2 Clippers are the best team in the 2021 Playoffs’ has come to a screeching halt as they are currently down 3-1. Teams have come back from down 3-1 more often than most people think, but being in such a situation is most definitely not ideal.
Paul George and the Clippers are no strangers to being a part of a 3-1 series but they’ve always been on the one to blow the 3-1 lead, not capitalize on it.
Skip Bayless is astonished at the fact that Paul George, Chris Paul, and Devin Booker shot as horribly as they did.
Paul George did little to nothing to help curb the spread of more ‘Pandemic P’ memes as he shot a horrid 5-20 from the field. Interestingly enough, PG has had 10 Playoff games where’s shot 25% or worse from the field. This is good enough for being the 4th player with 10 or more such games in NBA history.
Piggybacking off of stats like this, Skip Bayless took to Twitter to officially claim that the Clippers season is over. He also pointed out the obvious shooting stats that everybody has been clamoring about. Reggie Jackson didn’t have an efficient game either as he shot 8-24 from the field.
CP3 and Booker combined to go a pathetic 14-44 from the field and 0-8 from three. BUT PG and ReggieJax combined to go only 13-44 and 3-18 from three. Lotta tight throats on both sides. But the Clippers were at home.

Yet another astounding fact from this game is that Paul George and the Clippers were 0-12 in the 4th quarter on shots that could’ve tied the game up or changed the lead back to the Clips. It’s safe to say that the clutch gene doesn’t reside with all too many players on the Clips once Kawhi Leonard exits the picture.
