The Clippers routed the Dallas Mavericks 60-55 at halftime at house in Game 1 of their first-round, best-of-seven playoff series. Eventually, the Clippers will have to beat Luka Doncic and the rest of the Mavericks to have any hope of keeping this group together. While a prospective second-round loss to the Utah Jazz will probably not land well either, keep in mind that the Clippers have actually never ever played in a conference finals before in their not-so rich history.

When “Pandemic P” is already trending on Twitter after one half of LA Clippers playoff basketball, you know Paul George is having himself a bad time.
Twitter is ruthless, as LA Clippers wing Paul George is currently trending for all the wrongs reasons as “Pandemic P.”.
Despite having a much better regular-season record than the Lakers this year, the Clippers were unable to win a Pacific Division title, as that honor belongs to the No. 2-seeded Phoenix Suns.
Eventually, the Clippers will need to beat Luka Doncic and the rest of the Mavericks to have any hope of keeping this group together. A first-round exit would be a death sentence for this squad. While a possible second-round loss to the Utah Jazz will most likely not land well either, remember that the Clippers have actually never ever played in a conference finals before in their not-so rich history.
The longer “Pandemic P” patterns the worse things are getting for George, Leonard and the Clippers.
Paul George back to back airballs. Pandemic P is back.

The Clippers trailed the Dallas Mavericks 60-55 at halftime in the house in Game 1 of their first-round, best-of-seven playoff series. Los Angeles tanked its last few video games of the regular season to prevent playing the in-arena rival Los Angeles Lakers quicker. George shot 1-of-7 from the field, 0-for-3 from range, however 5-for-5 at the free-throw line, so he had that choosing him a minimum of.
If the Clippers suffer another early-postseason exit, ownership will need to blow this group up.
LA Clippers: “Pandemic P” is trending as Paul George plays horrible very first half.
As much as this point, the star tandem of George and Kawhi Leonard have actually accomplished getting their former head coach Doc Rivers fired, and absolutely nothing more.
It does not matter if “Playoff P” or “Pandemic P” is trending, it just implies George continues to be one of the most un-clutch superstars in the NBA today.
