Former Clippers guard George makes it a sour reunion.


Former Clippers guard George makes it a sour reunion.

The LA Clippers have nothing but praise for Patrick Beverley before of their Wednesday night away game against the Timberwolves. While the tough-guy point guard wasn’t always the most likable player on the court, he had plenty of admirers among his former teammates and coaches.

“I love Pat Bev,” Clippers coach Tyronn Lue told SI’s All Clippers after the game. “He has a lot of similarities to me.” That guy will always hold a special place in my heart. In my heart, he’ll always hold a particular place. It was difficult to have him on the other side.”

When the two sides reassembled at the Target Center, Beverley may have secured his “special position,” but the Clippers certainly didn’t make it easy for him. In fact, the reverse is true.

The Clippers upset the Timberwolves 126-115 to move one game closer to.500 at 3-4, led by Paul George, who had another big night for the team. It was their most complete offensive display of the season so far.

@timberwolves, you’re doing a great job. On Friday, I’ll see you.

Beverley couldn’t help but marvel at what his previous team had accomplished offensively in the aftermath of the game.

He exclaimed, “Obviously, they shot the s*** out of the ball.” “They’ve had a difficult season. As a result, they were overdue for a solid game. Clearly, today was a terrific day.”

On every point, you are correct.

George led the way with 32 points, which isn’t exactly a headline-grabber in and of itself. However, the fact that he did it while hitting 11 of 18 shots from the field and four three-pointers was yet another brilliant illustration of his MVP-caliber performance this season.

However, more important than the fact that George went off is the fact that he wasn’t the only one. Los Angeles had one of the better shooting performances in the NBA this season as a team. The Clippers made 60.3 percent of their shots, including 21 of 36 (58.33 percent) from beyond the arc.

Reggie Jackson matched George’s 11-for-18 shooting night with seven three-pointers and 29 points. Nicolas Batum, meanwhile, scored 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting. Beverley, on the other hand, performed admirably… Nokia News – Quick Recap
