‘We continue to chip away, try to find ways we can be better and impose our will on opponents,” Clippers guard Reggie Jackson said. ”We showed a lot of heart, a lot of fight.”
The Clippers cut their series deficit to 2-1, ending the Suns’ franchise-record playoff winning streak at nine games. ”Our guys keep grinding, keep fighting,” Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said. ”We never give in.”
Kawhi Leonard remained out with a right knee sprain, leaving George to carry the load again. After missing two crucial free throws in a one-point loss in Game 2, George had 15 rebounds and eight assists and played a game-high 43 minutes. He made 6 of 7 free throws.
The Suns got Paul back after he missed the first two games while being sidelined since June 16 because of the NBA’s health and safety protocols. The former Clipper, who was booed heartily during intros, had 15 points and 12 assists but was 5 of 19 from the field.
”I have to get better. I shot terrible,” Paul said. ”You could tell they had a lot more energy. I got to pick up the pace.”
Cameron Payne, who so ably filled in for Paul in the first two games, went down with a left ankle injury after playing four minutes and didn’t return.
