    Getty Paul George, Clippers For Clippers star Paul George, everything that has gone wrong in recent weeks for the Clippers is all connected, and it was firmly on display against the lowly Pelicans in a home loss on Monday night. The Clippers got hammered on the boards in the game, allowing 47 while grabbing only 35 themselves. The Clippers gave up 14 offensive rebounds, including seven to center Jonas Valanciunas, who drubbed the Clips for 39 points. The real culprit, according to George, is not the Clippers’ rebounding ability. It’s their failure as a fast-break NBA team.

    JAKE PAUL was one of many boxers to hit out at Teofimo Lopez after the former lightweight champion insisted he easily beat George Kambosos Jr. The Brooklyn native, 24, had his WBA, WBO, IBF and Ring belts ripped away in New York after losing a split decision against his Australian opponent in a 12-round war. 4Jake Paul mocked his American compatriot Teofimo Lopez following his defeat to George Kambosos JrCredit: Instagram jakepaul 4Lopez declared that he beat Kambosos Jr 10-2 on rounds, despite being second best in the contestCredit: Getty After predicting he would knock out Kambosos Jr in the opening round, Lopez was himself floored inside the first three minutes. Though he did manage to send the 28-year-old crashing to the canvas in the tenth round with a brutal overhand right. However it was too little, too late, as Lopez was beaten to the punch for the majority of the fight, with Kambosos Jr deservedly having his hand raised as the winner.

    Oscar winning director Peter Jackson has just finished what he calls his dream job, as the famous fan of The Beatles edited almost 60 hours of footage of the band shot half a century ago during the recording of "Let It Be."The result is "Get Back," a miniseries for Disney+ that premieres on Thanksgiving Day.It is a revelation, and that's not an exaggeration -- especially if you came of age listening to the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.Even if you know a lot about them, the miniseries still redefines them.Watching their journey back to where they once belonged will leave fans forever changed and demonstrate to all who were born after their break up why these guys were so special."It's very entertaining, because they're trying to achieve something that's very ambitious, and a lot of things go wrong for various reasons," Jackson said. "And yet, they sort of get through it with friendship and humor."ALSO READ | 'The First Wave' offers harrowing look into COVID pandemicEMBED More News Videos Sandy Kenyon reviews "First Wave,"...
    The world has justifiably awaited the release of the 33-year-old singer Adele’s latest album but — without hesitancy — I can say that the musical event of the year comes courtesy not of the girl from Tottenham, but four lads from Liverpool who, decades after they came together, remain the greatest musicians of the modern age.  They are, of course, The Beatles, the 20th century band who transformed music.  Their soundtrack is one which effortlessly bestrides every decade from the Swinging Sixties to the current day. And now, astonishing and intimate unseen footage allows us to glimpse them once more at their creative zenith.  Sixty hours of footage, filmed over the course of four weeks in January 1969, has been edited down into three two-hour long documentaries by the Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson.  Having had the chance to see a preview, I can tell you that this is appointment viewing, an epic but intimate portrait of a band at the height of their powers against the backdrop of a London that no longer exists.

    Getty Ex-Bulls guard Tomas Satoransky has been linked to the Clippers in BR's latest trade suggestion. Winners of seven straight games, the Los Angeles Clippers are one of the hottest teams in the NBA. They have yet to lose in the month of November, and despite the absence of Kawhi Leonard, the Clips have started to gel after losing four of their first five. Los Angeles has found success leaning heavily on guard Paul George, who is currently ranked 4th in the NBA in scoring, averaging 26.4 points a game. The Clippers have done as well as can be expected without their superstar, with seven players (including George) averaging in double figures. But even though team harmony is looking good, Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley thinks L.A. should consider adding a secondary point guard.

    Getty Reggie Jackson, Clippers Considering the way the NBA season started for Clippers veteran guard Reggie Jackson, just making a shot or two felt like a major win. In the team’s first six games, Jackson shot 31.0% from the field and 29.1% from the 3-point line. He averaged 14.2 points, but because those points came so inefficiently, he was almost surprised as things began to turn around. “It was surreal,” Jackson said this week. “Surreal and crazy, to see the ball going through the basket. But I was like, ‘Oh, snap, is that me who made that? Did that actually go in? OK.’ My teammates keep finding me for shot, to be the recipient of great offense of us moving the ball.

    Getty LA Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe handles the ball during a game against the Memphis Grizzlies. With a 104-84 win on Friday, the LA Clippers came out on top against Pat Bev and the Minnesota Timberwolves for the second straight game. As a result, the team now will have an opportunity to get back above .500 when it hosts LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday. Although things are starting to look up for the Clippers — aside from having multiple injuries to key players — there are still major issues in the team’s starting backcourt. Specifically, Eric Bledsoe hasn’t played at a level anywhere near his usual standard since he dropped 22 points on opening night. Over his last seven games, Bledsoe has averaged just 6.9 points on 24.6% shooting and a paltry 8.7% from three-point range. In the latest win over the Wolves, he was 2-of-13 from the floor. Despite Beldsoe’s continued struggles, though, Paul George isn’t ready to panic. The Clippers star continues to back his guy, who he believes is still in the...
    Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George needed to cool himself down after hitting a three-pointer against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Los Angeles Clippers just earned their second win of the season this past Monday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, thanks to a 32-point performance by Paul George. On Wednesday night, George was showing off his shooting abilities from behind the three-point line. At one point in the third quarter of Wednesday night’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, George hit a step-back 3-pointer to extend Los Angeles’ lead to 80-72. The Clippers star actually had to cool himself off, because he was on fire. Paul George has to cool down after being hot from the three-point lineGeorge was 4-for-8 from behind the arc on Wednesday night. While it was a solid night, he was nowhere near as effective as his teammates, Reggie Jackson (7-for-9) and Nicolas Batum (6-for-8). The Clippers won 126-115. In 36 minutes of playing time, George scored 32 points, eight assists, six rebounds, one block and one steal. Entering this game, George was averaging 28.3 points, 8.0...
    Getty Paul George tries to talk sense to the NBA's new ball There’s probably not one word to adequately describe how bad the Clippers shooting has been to start the season. Their 41.3% from the floor is 26th worst in the NBA, and, just one season after leading the league in 3-point efficiency, they are currently 21st in that category, while taking the third-most attempts from deep. Atrocious? Confounding? Even in eking out their second win — a 99-94 comeback victory Monday night over the very young and very beatable Thunder, who had not held an opponent under 100 points in 44 straight games — L.A. had to overcome a brutal first half when they sank less than a third of their field goal attempts and just 14.3% of their threes. At one point in the first quarter, the Clippers missed eight straight shots, until Terance Mann scored, and then they missed five more in a row. Though L.A. defrosted in a big way in the second half, connecting on 12-of-21 threes and, in the fourth quarter, outscoring...
    Civil rights records, walking in spiderwebs, making saints: News from around our 50 states Germany: Merkels party to choose new leader by late January You may have missed it but after 37 years the NBA introduced a new ball this season. Wilson has taken over as the official ball maker in the world's best basketball league. To the naked eye not much has changed. I mean, the ball is still the same color, it's still the same shape and size, but apparently, there are some differences — that's of course according to those who have to use it. We're just a couple of weeks into the season and shooting percentages are down across the board.  NBA League Pass: Sign up to unlock live out-of-market games (7-day free trial) Clippers star Paul George thinks the new ball may have something to do with that.  "Not to make an excuse or anything, it's just a different basketball," George told reporters following a 99-94 Clippers victory over the Thunder.

    Tokyo: Festival Programmer On Revamping Event During Pandemic Mortgage relief options: Refinancing versus loan modification With Kawhi Leonard sidelined for what might be the entire regular season, this was the year that Paul George would be able to captain the Los Angeles Clippers' ship and see how far he could take this team without his cohort. Although the Clippers are struggling to start the season with a 2-4 record, it certainly hasn't been because of lackluster performances from George.  © Provided by CBS Sports Against the Thunder on Monday evening, George turned in his most recent impressive performance, carrying the Clippers to their second win of the season after falling behind by 15 points in the second quarter. It wasn't a perfect game by any means for George, as he put up only five points in the first half. But he wasn't going to let his team lose this game, and he went off for 15 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter, including two back-to-back 3-pointers to close the gap to a 3-point deficit. .@yg_trece coming through in...
    Getty Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George looks on during a game against the Memphis Grizzlies. One week does not a season make but if the early returns are any indication, the Los Angeles Clippers could be in trouble. Wednesday night’s bout with the Cleveland Cavaliers represented the low point for the year to date, as Paul George and Co. mustered just 79 points — at home — against a team that was 22-50 last season. Although a lot of things went wrong in the contest, Paul George’s 6-for-20 performance stuck out like a sore thumb. Not so much because of what it meant for him but, really, because of what it means for the rest of the team. Simply put, while co-star Kawhi Leonard is healing up, George needs significant support in pushing this train along. As good as he is, the seven-time All-Star can’t keep things on the track by himself. When he hasn’t had help, the Clippers haven’t come through. And, by and large, his backing band hasn’t been striking the right notes.Backcourt Tandem Misfiring,...
    In response to Paul taking a victory lap after the release of the NIH letter, Fauci said Paul is still wrong. "Well, I obviously totally disagree with Sen. Paul. He's absolutely incorrect. Neither I nor Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the NIH, lied or misled about what we've done," Fauci said. Fauci continued:The framework under which we have guidance about the conduct of research that we fund, the funding at the Wuhan Institute was to be able to determine what is out there in the environment, in bat viruses in China. And the research was very strictly under what we call a framework of oversight of the type of research. And under those conditions which we have explained very, very clearly, does not constitute research of gain-of-function of concern.When asked by host George Stephanopoulos whether the NIH letter proves what Vanity Fair explained — that the NIH engaged in riskier research than what agency officials have admitted — Fauci held his position. "No, it isn't. We knew what the risk was, and what the oversight is," he said. Fauci,...
    Getty LA Clippers star Paul George drives to the basket during a game against the Golden State Warriors. Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George was a man on a mission during his team’s 2021-22 season opener on Thursday. His objective: to get to the tin and either get points or get to the free-throw line. Unfortunately for him, though, the officials weren’t wise to the plan. In spite of his many attempts to draw contact while driving to the hoop, George didn’t attempt a single foul shot in his 37 minutes on the court. And that dearth of attempts from the charity stripe undoubtedly had an effect on what eventually became a 115-113 loss to the Golden State Warriors. So, true to form, PG-13 saw fit to unload on the referees after the game. “Draymond [Green] got nine of them, so honestly I don’t know what he did that I wasn’t doing,” George said after the loss. “I drove the ball more than he did to the paint, took more contact than he did, I don’t know how...
    With Kawhi Leonard out for most, if not all, of the season, can Paul George step into a primary role and keep the Clippers in the playoffs? The Clippers are in a certain kind of NBA limbo, though not one of their own making. Kawhi Leonard’s torn ACL may have dashed the franchise’s championship hopes this season, but unlike most teams constructed around superstars, the Clippers aren’t likely to fall completely by the wayside without their best player. Even after Leonard’s injury in June, the Clippers still managed to close out the top-seeded Jazz before pushing the Suns to six games in the Western Conference Finals. This offseason presented a decision: wait out Leonard’s return and punt on what likely won’t be a championship season, or try and salvage an unfortunate situation. The Clippers chose the latter path, bringing back veterans Nic Batum and Reggie Jackson and trading for Eric Bledsoe in an attempt to hold together last year’s Western Conference runner-up. The approach that worked for LA after Leonard went down — putting maximum shooting and ball-handling on the...
    Getty Paul George, Clippers In the coming NBA season, there will be plenty of opportunities for those with the Clippers to assert themselves, to help the team make its way through the absence of Kawhi Leonard, who will be out for at least most—if not all—of the season as he recovers from July surgery on his torn right ACL. Third-year guard Terance Mann will get the chance to play a more consistent role. New guard Eric Bledsoe, too, will have a chance to thrive back with the team that drafted him. Reggie Jackson, Justise Winslow, Luke Kennard—there will be Clippers with chances they might not have if Leonard were healthy. Still, just how successful the Clippers can be until Leonard is healthy will come down to the one guy who has almost as much talent as Leonard: Paul George. And George knows it, knows he has to continue to silence the many doubters who have lingered about during his two mostly disappointing years with the Clippers. “It’s just an approach where I don’t give a f***,” George said...

    Paul Burrell has shared his disappointment that Prince Harry has not condemned the portrayal of his nephew Prince George in the controversial animated series The Prince. Talking to Closer magazine, Princess Diana's former butler, 63, criticised HBO Max's 12-part series, which has sparked a backlash over its decision to mock George, eight, and his siblings Charlotte, five, and Louis, three, as well as its depiction of the late Duke of Edinburgh.    The show centres around a fictional version of George as a child tyrant with expensive taste, a withering sense of humour and a dim view of his family, while Prince Harry is played by Orlando Bloom and depicted as an inattentive father who has to work at a coffee shop to pay the bills after his TV projects fail.  Paul said he believes it could be 'extremely damaging to target a young boy and mock him' in the way the cartoonists have, and suggested Harry should 'speak up and defend his family'.

    Getty Russell Westbrook attempted to team up with Kawhi Leonard on the Clippers. The Los Angeles Lakers nearly faced Russell Westbrook as a member of their crosstown rival Los Angeles Clippers if not for Kawhi Leonard giving the star the cold shoulder. During a lengthy feature penned by ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the NBA insider revealed that Westbrook made a pitch to Leonard to team up together in Los Angeles during the 2019 free agency. Westbrook’s call actually backfired as Leonard used the conversation to help lure Paul George to the Clippers. Leonard called Westbrook’s then Thunder teammate to reveal the All-Star’s plan of bolting Oklahoma City. This ultimately led to George, not Westbrook, joining the Clippers with Leonard. “Westbrook had become a father of three the previous November, and while he’d made a home and carved a Hall of Fame legacy in Oklahoma City, the chance to live and play in Los Angeles, where grandparents and his large extended family and friends could visit every day, held deep appeal,” Shelburne detailed. “Teaming up with Leonard would...
    Getty Kawhi Leonard and Paul George of the Los Angeles Clippers have become quite the dynamic duo. Did Kawhi Leonard use Russell Westbrook to help the Los Angeles Clippers secure the services of Paul George? And in doing so, did the Clips superstar inadvertently assist the Los Angeles Lakers in landing Russell Westbrook a few years later? According to an August 2 report by Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, that’s exactly what happened. Per Shelburne, during the summer of 2019, when both Los Angeles-based teams were vying for the services of Leonard, Westbrook placed a call to Kawhi in the hopes of playing together in L.A., where they’re both originally from. Kawhi “didn’t just take the call as one native son of Los Angeles to another, ponder it and file it away,” Shelburne wrote. “He used it.” Follow the Heavy on Clippers Facebook page for the latest breaking news, rumors and content out of Clipper Nation!

Paul George, who has taken us all on a roller coaster of a journey during the Conference Finals, is well aware of what it’s going to take to pull off an upset series victory over the Phoenix Suns. Los Angeles managed to stay alive on Monday night with a win in Game 5, but after the game George was candid about what his body is going through during an intense playoff run after the many recoveries he’s had to endure over the course of his career.

With the Los Angeles Clippers facing elimination against the Phoenix Suns on Monday, George put together arguably his best playoff performance ever. He scored 41 points on 75% shooting and grabbed 13 rebounds en route to a 116-102 win. George has dealt with a number of bad injuries throughout his career, including undergoing shoulder surgery prior to last season.

The performance caused his teammate, the outspoken DeMarcus Cousins, to tell fans to cut the memes and put some respect on George’s name. “I don’t know where this trolling bulls—t has come from,” Cousins said of George in a postgame press conference. “The internet controls the narrative about these players.

    Paul George had a dominant performance in a must-win situation for the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday, and after the game, he was looking to end any criticism hurled his way. George has notoriously been the butt of jokes about failing to show up in the playoffs.

    Eye-Popping Returns Lure Hedge Funds to Japanese Startups Asian markets dip for second day in a row The Los Angeles Clippers aren’t done just yet. Paul George made sure of that. George dropped a postseason career-high 41 points to lead the Clippers past the Phoenix Suns 116-102 in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Monday night to keep their postseason hopes alive and bring the series to 3-2.  After his brutal shooting night in their Game 4 loss – George went just 5-of-20 from the field and 1-of-9 from behind the arc on Saturday — his night was a welcome sight for Clippers fans. "PG’s been great for us all year and I just don’t understand why it’s magnified so much when he doesn’t play well, when he has a bad game, because a lot of people play bad." Clippers coach Ty Lue said. "I’m just happy he came back and played a great game. We needed every minute of it." The Clippers got going early, and started on a big 20-5 tear to take control of...
    Getty Paul George, Clippers All the Pandemic P chatter out in the Twitter-verse seems to have evaporated. All the needling over the two missed free throws at the end of Game 2—and the missed free throws in Game 4—that’s gone silent, too. It might not be enough to save this Western Conference finals series but for now, at least, Paul George has rescued his reputation as a playoff performer. He was jeered with the “Pandemic P” nickname after his meager performance in last year’s conference semis, which saw Denver storm back from a 3-1 deficit to eliminate L.A. He erased that on Monday. And what a way to do it. George was scorching from start to finish in Game 5 in Phoenix, with the Clippers facing elimination and the Suns hoping to celebrate a trip to the Finals with a win. Instead, George shot 15-for-20 from the field, made three of his six 3-point attempts and, yes, made all eight of his free-throw attempts for a career postseason high of 41 points, to go with 13 rebounds and...

The short-handed Clippers were playing without two-time NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and center Ivica Zubac, who missed his first game of the season with an MCL sprain in his right knee.

    Paul George gets a bad rap with the nickname Pandemic P. The slander no longer stands as the Clippers star proved himself again in Game 5 against the Suns. Take the term “Pandemic P” and put it out of your vocabulary. Paul George deserves some respect on his name after his Game 5 performance against the Suns. Just don’t act like George hasn’t done enough to keep his team alive throughout the postseason. Despite a few short rough patches, he has delivered above and beyond. The much-maligned guard has 20 points in all 18 playoff games so far. He’s in the company of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant with that streak. The Pandemic P label suggests George shrinks in the biggest moments. The evidence of the 2021 NBA Playoffs suggests the opposite. The Clippers still have to win another two games in a row to advance. They’re unlikely to achieve that feat, but regardless of the outcome, George has already proven he’s the man. Next: NBA Mock Draft 4.0
