Since you didn't get it the first time, I have to say it again Paul George played in the first play in game against the Timberwolves. Not only did he play in that game he actually did pretty good since he had seven rebounds five assists three steals and thirty-four points. Plus, they had a decent enough lead going into the fourth quarter that they should easily have won the game. As for the game against the Pelicans they knew well in advantage that George would miss it they had more than enough time to make pre-game adjustments to make up for him not playing. Plus, both the Clippers and Pelicans had identical 6-4 records in there last ten games going into the play in tournament. The Clipper actually where the hottest team of the four teams that made the play in tournament in the West since they won five straight. As for the 76ers the sweep is still on at least the Raptors deserve some minor credit since they forced today's game to go into overtime.
Since you don't get it any time, I have to say it again. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the two men that the team is built around, missed the most important game of the season. I don't understand how someone who typically reduces his analysis to, "This team has the more popular star, therefore it's better", can't comprehend that. Kawhi Leonard missed the first play-in game... and the season prior to that.
Since you don't get it any time, talking about the Clips and Pels identical 6-4 records doesn't mean anything, because as I said, the Pels pretty much threw their last two games by not playing Brandon Ingram and only playing CJ McCollum five minutes in Game 82 while their opponents played their starters typical minutes. Prior to that, the Pels were 9-4 in their last 13.
Funny how you waited until the Sixers-Raptors game was over to get on here and comment on it. You sure as heck didn't feel confident enough in your hot take to go in on the bet.
