WATCH: Paul George Hits Audacious Three-Pointer From Half Court During Clippers Game 3 Win Over Suns
The LA Clippers and Phoenix Suns have somehow managed to make this series very enticing despite the Suns winning the first two games. Initially, the focus of this matchup was that the two superstars, Kawhi Leonard and Chris Paul would be missing from the lineup. However, it quickly turned into a roller coaster. And the Clippers’ unexpected win in Game 3, thanks to Paul George, is another reason to love this series.
The Clippers finally look like they will be able to partially climb out of their hole by winning game 3. This is an unfortunate turn of events for the Suns, who just got Chris Paul back after he was cleared from the league’s health and safety protocols. Although he looked completely fine on the court, he had contributed zilch to the scoreboard even when the second quarter had begun.
Moreover, he wasn’t the only one who was struggling on the floor tonight. Devin Booker hadn’t dropped a single basket way into the second quarter as well.
But it looks like tweaking their lineup for the third time this series helped the Clippers which helped. Their superstar Paul George was struggling with scoring at first. But he started to look like himself when he dropped this buzzer-beater three to finish the third quarter. He ended the night as their lead scorer with 27 points, 15 rebounds, and 8 assists.

Paul George helps Suns survive another night
Both the Phoenix Suns stars were hardly scoring throughout the game. Even into the fourth quarter, Booker only had 15 points and Chris had 13. Their low-scoring performance could mean that the LA Clippers might snatch this vital win for themselves.
Even Paul George started off slow but slowly looked like his old self. He was finally dropping some buckets that gave them a much-needed lead in the match. The first three quarters were nothing but trying to grab the lead over the other.
Unfortunately, the second quarter was better for the Suns as they were able to cover the deficit they had in the first. However, the third quarter was what worked for the Clippers. They were able to add 34 points compared to the Suns’ 21 that put them way ahead in this game.
It would be sad to see the Phoenix lose despite having Paul on their lineup. But it makes us wonder if the Clippers are en route to give us an unexpected upset in the series.
