Just like they always do in the playoffs, the LA Clippers beat the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

Paul George went off, going 12 of 25 for 29 points while hitting 3 of 8 three-point shots. He recorded a steal, and dropped six dimes in the contest as well. Grabbing four rebounds, PG13 seemed to do just about everything right.

While the final stat line for George was awfully impressive, it was the number one highlight he gave the viewers that REALLY stole the show.

Watching PG put Dwight Powell on a poster was refreshing, and I like that he got his chance to flex for the camera. Many opposing fans see George as an overconfident player, but considering how PG is having a career year and nobody outside LA seems to be talking about it, he deserves to let everyone know just how special he is.

Paul George continues to dominate teams and carry the LA Clippers.

Not enough can be said about how Paul George has been able to keep the LA Clippers in the thick of contention even without Kawhi Leonard in the mix. There were questions as to whether George would be able to lead a championship-caliber team as a number one option, and he’s certainly getting the job done right now. He’s led the Clippers to the fourth seed in the West at 10-7, and the team is now 9-3 in their last 12 games.

It was even pointed out that PG is no stranger to these types of plays, and even did it on one of the biggest stages in basketball in the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals:

That 2013 Eastern Conference Finals run is a reminder of just how special PG can be as the number one option on a contending team. Even then, in his age 22 season, he emerged as the Pacers’ best player and took prime LeBron James and “The Heatles” to seven games. That same team that he almost beat ended up winning the NBA Finals that year.

PG entered Sunday’s game having perhaps the best year of his career, and posting a stat line of 26.3 points per game, 7.9 rebounds per game, 5.2 assists per game, and 2 steals per game. He’s shooting 43.9% from the field, 34.7% from three, and 89.9% from the stripe. He’s doing all this while everyone’s entire defense is constantly throwing the kitchen sink at him as PG is the only star on this Clipper team that’s out there.

Next. You need to bet on Ty Lue--Literally. dark

They know that PG is going to be heavily featured by the Clips, and still can’t stop him. This poster was awesome to watch, but this entire season has been remarkable from PG13. He’s been so much more than one play, and needs to be in the MVP conversation.
