After their Game 2 127-121 loss against Luka Doncic and his Mavericks, analyst Skip Bayless blasts Paul George and the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Los Angeles Clippers have been considered as title contenders, ever since the All-Star duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George’s arrival. Entering the 2020-2021 season too, adding Serge Ibaka, Nicolas Batum and Rajon Rondo to the squad, the Clippers franchise looked like the favourites coming out of the West.
As they tanked the last two games of the regular season, LAC got Luka Doncic and his Mavericks as their first-round matchup. Much to their surprise, the Slovenian superstar has other plans to upset the Los Angeles-based team.
Coming off a big 113-103 Game 1 win, Luka Doncic looked to be more locked in than ever. As expected, Kawhi Leonard did have a strong game, but just wasn’t enough for the Clippers who suffered a huge 127-121 blow.
Dallas’ 6-foot-7 point forward finished the game with a strong 39 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists performance, while knocking down 5 three-pointers.

While Kawhi Leonard had a great performance, putting up 41 points, it was Paul George who was a bit inefficient shooting the ball beyond the three-point line. Paul, who shot at 14.3% from three-point land, had a 28-point performance.
As George finished with a game-low +/- of -18, analyst Skip Bayless took it to Twitter, referring to him as ‘Pandemic P’ and blasting him for the Clippers loss. Bayless tweeted:
“I can definitely wait for tomorrow’s Undisputed. Now I get to sleep for three hours, then get ridiculed for two and a half hours on national TV. Thanks, Pandemic P.”

Coming to the Clippers’ home and snatching two back-to-back important wins, would be giving the young Mavericks team loads of confidence. Even though Los Angeles Clippers head coach, Ty Lue, is “not concerned” yet, it is time for his team to be worried and play basketball with some urgency to win games.
Playing the next two games on the road, we will have to wait and watch how the Clippers respond with their backs against the wall.
