The LA Clippers took care of business on Wednesday night, knocking off the Spurs on their home court and earning their third consecutive win. One of the highlights of the night was James Harden teaching Victor Wembanyama a thing or two during the first quarter of action.
In taking care of business two times in three days in San Antonio, the Clippers have now won a season-high three games in a row. They finally have some momentum, and are taking care of the teams they should beat; an encouraging sign.
There was another significant moment during the first half of LA's win on Wednesday. In the first quarter, Paul George knocked down a three-pointer that officially moved him past Chris Paul on the list of three-pointers made all-time by a Clippers player.
Paul George moved up to fourth on the Clippers' all-time three-pointers made list
Chris Paul made 618 threes in a Clippers uniform, and by the end of the game, Paul George stood at 621 threes since landing in LA. Now, PG is behind just Jamal Crawford, JJ Redick and Eric Piatkowski on the Clippers' all-time threes list.
It is worth noting that Paul George has been lighting up the nets from behind the arc this season. Having already made 44 threes in 2023-24, he is on pace to make more than 250, much higher than the total of 158 he reached last season.
This is a nice milestone that encapsulates how well Paul George has been playing this season. The Clippers will greatly benefit if he can continue lighting it up from three-point territory.
