It was a tense affair all the way as the Pistons took on the LA Clippers. The Pistons, who are already out of playoff contention, had nothing to lose and were playing fearlessly. However, a sublime effort from Paul George and Marcus Morris prevented them from causing an upset.
In the final minutes of the game, PG13 made headlines with the most vicious of dunks ever seen in a Clippers jersey. It left Isaiah Stewart dumbfounded by the extent of George’s jumping ability as he soared above to slam the ball.

The Clippers bench was hyped by this play and was on their feet to celebrate. Even coach Tyronne Lue was surprised by the sheer ferocity of the dunk. After the game, Paul George said, “The team is coming together. You feel it and the last thing we want to do is not leave a stone unturned. I definitely think there will be some carryover on the road.”
Paul George and Marcus Morris seal the deal for the Clippers
It was an exemplary performance from the two senior members of the squad to keep the Pistons at bay. Marcus Morris scored a season-high 33 points for his side. He also finished with six rebounds to his name. Apart from him, Paul George produced a scintillating performance on both ends of the court. The 30-year-old finished with 32 points racking up nine assists and three rebounds during the game.
In the post-game press conference, Tyronne Lue was very pleased with his team’s comeback in the final quarter. He said, “Despite their record, teams are going to get hot and play hard. For our team to stay together and continue to keep playing was important. We were able to chip away when we got a couple stops and converted.”
The Los Angeles Clippers are third in the Western Conference standings. At the moment, they are well in contention for the playoff spots. Moreover, they have a five-game winning streak and will look forward to extending this good run of form.
