Paul George had one of his worst games of the postseason when the Los Angeles Clippers were eliminated by the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night. Going ice cold in an elimination game is never ideal, but unfortunately it’s something George has grown accustomed to.

George scored just 10 points on 4-of-16 shooting. He was 2-of-10 from three-point range. As ESPN’s Royce Young noted, George has not played well at all in the last five games in which his team was facing elimination.

George was extremely open about the mental struggles he went through early in the playoffs this year, which led to less-than-stellar play. He appeared to turn things around at one point, but he shot less than 40% from the field overall in the playoffs. That is one of the reasons the Clippers fell so far short of expectations.

Between his recent track record in elimination games and the comments he made after the Clippers’ loss, fans in L.A. have to be concerned about George’s ability to help them win a title.
