George return helps Clippers get ready for the playoffs

Paul George returned in a big comeback win against the Utah Jazz last week. His return along with Norman Powell puts the Clippers in a good position to make a deep playoff run like last season. They are currently in eighth place in the Western Conference with a record of 36-38. In his first game back after missing 96 days, George finished the game with 34 points, 6 assists and 4 steals.
The Clippers are getting healthier at the right time as they get ready for the playoffs. Los Angeles at this point of the season is looking forward to their matchup with the surging Minnesota Timberwolves to avoid the top seeded Phoenix Suns in the first round.
Players like Reggie Jackson, Marcus Morris and Luke Kennard need to play at a high level the rest of the season if they expect to make a deep run in the playoffs. George is arguably one of the top 15 players in the league today, will be looked upon to help the Clippers possibly pull off a big time upset in this year's playoffs.
It all starts with the Tyrone Lue and his guys finishing up their last few games with some great momentum. They have two more home games remaining on their regular season schedule on Saturday, against the Kings at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday against the Thunder at 6:30 p.m.
